After reading this, rain and windshield wipers will have a different association for me.

Out of the mouths of babes…

I hope the rain shows in the picture! It’s awesome if it does! The message is awesome, too. You must forward the email to save the picture !

One rainy afternoon I was driving along one of the main streets of town, taking those extra precautions necessary when the roads are wet and slick. Suddenly, my daughter, Aspen, spoke up from her relaxed position in her seat. “Dad, I’m thinking of something.”

This announcement usually meant she had been pondering some fact for a while, and was now ready to expound all that her six-year-old mind had discovered. I was eager to hear.

“What are you thinking?” I asked. “The rain,” she began, “is like sin, and the windshield wipers are like God wiping our sins away.”

After the chill bumps raced up my arms I was able to respond. “That’s really good, Aspen.” Then my curiosity broke in. How far would this little girl take this revelation? So I asked.. “Do you notice how the rain keeps on coming? What does that tell you?” Aspen didn’t hesitate one moment with her answer: “We keep on sinning, and God just keeps on forgiving us.”

I will always remember this whenever I turn my wipers on. Isn’t it distressing to know that when you forward this message you will not send it to many on your address list because you’re not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it to them. Funny how I can be more worried about what other people think of me than what God thinks of me.

In order to see the rainbow, you must first endure some rain!

For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord…plans to prosper you, not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
