Yes, I know what the Bible says in Psalm 24: “This is the day which the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”
But some days are just harder than others for rejoicing.
Like this past Wednesday. I could tell it was going to be one of those days.
And I sat inside listening to the hard rain, I suddenly remembered: my car has a leak in it. Not one through which things leak OUT. Oh, no; this is one through which the rain leaks IN.
So, since the garage is used for storage, the car with the leak in it sat in the driveway – likely with a wet interior. I knew I’d have to mosey on out soon to check the water level.
Thank goodness for umbrellas, I thought; I have three of them, maybe even four.
And then as I looked around, I realized that, unfortunately, all three (or four) umbrellas were out in that car with the leak. Along with my raincoat.
I hope the Lord forgives me. I was not rejoicing on Wednesday!
