Worries Are All Wet

I was driving home from a shift in the Birthight office, heavy of mind and heart... Not with one specific worry, but with the many concerns that come with the ebb and flow of life.  At a stoplight near a Christian-owned car dealership, I read this on the electronic billboard:

"Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man." (Luke 21:36)

That seems about right, I thought.

I continued to think and pray and hope and think.  By the time I arrived home, I still had no answers.  (That seems to happen to me a lot.)  I needed a hug, a peppermint bon bon ice cream cone, a vodka, and a nap... not necessarily in that order.  But my people were not in the house.  

This is where they were:

I started thinking, If July 2 is the first opportunity we have had this season for a family boat ride, then that's another problem right there.  And that, at least, is a problem about which I could do something.
