We had a great gift given to us this past weekend Sunday night to be exact. My husbands Sister and her family invited us and his other sister to enjoy a great night with them at an indoor water park. We accepted and had a great time. Mark and Jacob's favorite part of the Park was the enormous bucket that fills with water and dumps all over you. I would have to say that my favorite part of the hole experience was watching a grown man and his son hurry as fast as they could from one end of the park to the other without getting whistled at by the lifeguard (running is not allowed) so that they would get dumped on. Elexis my daughter didn't much like the idea of all that water falling on her.
Isn't it funny how in life some of us spend so much time hurrying to one place or another just so we can get dumped on. And some of us just keep going back everytime we hear the bell ringing over and over again
ducking our head waiting for it to hit us
just waiting for the water.
Is that a good thing or bad? I think that God intense for us to be under that flow of water if only to build our charcter, and to make us stronger. So next time you feel the water dumping on you think of it as God gift of love, strength and endurance to you each and every day. How could we ask for more?

What a great analogy! We've been to that park. Being dumped on can build our character and, perhaps, bring others to Jesus depending how we react. Whether the reaction is grace & dignity or anger & hate, people notice. I loved reading your blog. We miss you and love you.
