Jesus said, “For whoever is not against us is for us.” Mk_9:38-40
So here we are at Disney World in Florida. It’s been a year of preparation for our daughter and her young family. And it’s raining! Is God against us? Are the weather gods against us? Is it just our misfortune. If I gaze upon the weather maps, it looks as though the only nasty weather in the whole country is right here in Florida. AND YET! And yet, if we look around the whole area we’ve been to since our arrival last week, the ponds are dry, the tide is out and everything is just starving for a little rain. So what we’re experiencing is REALLY a good thing for Florida. They really do need some rain. And in reality, there is no-one against us. Maybe the crowds will be a little less. Maybe sun will be a little less threatening to our winter frozen mid-MO pale skins. Maybe it’s just what the doctor (or our Loving God) ordered. So instead of counting our woes, maybe we should be counting our blessings instead! There really is NO-one against us! So they are all FOR us! Praise be to God!
