31 Days of DaNella's Brain... Microbursts! Day 10

God Throws Water Balloons?

The other day I was walking across campus to class. I wasn’t bothering anyone; I was minding my own business, thinking about all I had to do. I was probably too deep into my own thoughts, trying to solve my problems by myself.

I had homework due, and with home-schooling 2 of my kids, and 2 in public school, a lot on my mind.

So here I am minding my own business, in my own little world, worried about the cares of life, and suddenly my head is soaked.

Really, I am telling you the truth; it felt like a huge water balloon dropped on my head.

Apparently it had rained the night before, and a squirrel jumped from one tree to another causing it to “rain” on me. It startled me, but it made me laugh, and made me realize that there are better things to do than worry about what is going on in my life, God can handle it. Proverbs 17:22 says,

A joyful heart is good medicine, but depression drains one's strength

So don’t take your self too seriously, or God will have to throw a water balloon at you like He did me.
