Crazy weather these days here in Southern California. Seems like the weathermen never get it right. I think I can do just as good of a job looking out my window and determining what kind of day it will be just by looking for the obvious.
I do know of one sure way to know if it will rain: wash your car. It always works for me!
BTW, bald men always know first when it is raining! My wife and I will be walking along outside and I will say, “It’s starting to rain!” Her response is, “No, it isn’t!”
That’s because she has enough hair for two people. If I could somehow use the hair that is left over on her brush, it would be like a revival on my head!
But with no hair up there, you know right away when those little drops begin to fall.
Advantages to being bald
There are a couple of other advantages to being bald:
- It takes us two minutes to dry our hair, if that. In contrast, it takes my wife a good hour!
- You never get “helmet hair” or have a “bad hair day.” You always have “no hair days.”
Signs of the times
Coming back to the unpredictable weather, Jesus said, “You are good at reading the weather signs in the sky, but you can’t read the obvious signs of the times!” (Matthew 16:3 NLT). All around us are signs of the times that Jesus Christ is coming back again.
I will speaking on that topic tonight at Harvest, should you want to come or watch online. It will based on 1 Thessalonians 5 and the title of the message will be “How to Live as we Await the Lord’s Return.”
Lost Boy book signing
I will also be signing copies of my new autobiography, Lost Boy, after the service. If you are one of my “blogging buddies,” come by and let me know!
