No. It's pouring.
I have to get ready for church and then get my daughter up and get her ready for church. I hate going to church in the rain --all dressed up in a dress and then getting all wet and windblown. ick.
Today would be a great day to just put on my "weight-challenged" pants (note: others may refer to this item as "fat pants") and laze around the house in front of the television or under a blanket with a good book.
But no. I HAVE to go to church. I'm on the Praise Team and we're already missing one person today because he has the nerve to be out of town. If I don't show up - that means it's just Dawna. She might miss me. Besides, I'm singing the special music for the offering. (yes, I sing too --whoever it was that asked...)
....What if Jesus had said, "oh, it feels like it's going to be a miserable day, they're going to falsely accuse me, beat me, humiliate me and crucify me. I think I'll just stay in bed with a papyrus scroll and read."
Okay...I'm going to get read for church!
Besides, you're not going to believe this --but out my window --this very moment --is a break in the clouds and I see a patch of blue sky with a tiny silver-lined white cloud trying to burst forth!
....behind every dark cloud...there is a silver lining...
Have a blessed day all!
