Sun and Wind On The Roof
Just this week....Meniere's Disease, 2 new tires, a new pool motor and pretty serious water damage. Add that to ongoing relationship difficulties...yadayadayada....... and yesterday's sermon is ringing in my ears. I'm asking the Lord to reveal my fears so that I might renew my focus. I've been singing.....
"Turn your eyes upon Jesus.
Look full in his wonderful face.
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim...

.......over and over. And every time one of the kids loses their focus and turns something into an idol.....I sing it to them.
I'm reminded of something Billy Graham said once...."I can't see the wind..... but I can see the affects of the wind."
Oh Lord, please help me to see You alone through life's little gusts and pesky dust devils.

of little faith, why did you doubt?")
FAITH (Matthew 14:33. And those who were in the boat worshipped Him, saying, "You are certainly God's Son!")
