Hi everyone! Well, I was born and raised in Nebraska so the ‘roller coaster’ of weather is just something that I’m used to, as all of us Nebraskans are, however the recent changes seem pretty unusual. On October 3, the day of the Fall Supper it reached 90+degrees and this past Sunday, October 14 we had a few inches of snow, with many days of rain and cloudy weather in between and the forecast calls for nice weather the rest of this week. The weather is so very much like all of us, we just never know what’s going to happen next.  God ultimately is in charge of the weather and also of us, how we handle/deal with it is what makes us who we are. I personally believe that living where we do makes us a little tougher having to prepare/cope with different weather every day.  But, as Christians we need to be tough and remained grounded in what we believe. In so many things around us that are wavering or uncertain we need to remain constant in our faith in God and Jesus Christ.  Each one of us makes decisions on a daily basis or even more often than that, we hope that the decisions we make are good ones and will glorify God.  We may scratch our heads and get frustrated with the weather and many other things in our life, but we can’t change most things, all we can really change is ourselves and not lose sight on our journey with God.  There are many Biblical examples of people and groups that questioned and/or doubted what God was instructing them to do; Noah, Moses, Daniel, even the Disciples and others; what would their lives been like if they decided not to do as God told them?  We do know what God has said about people that don’t, it doesn’t turn out well for them.  Each of us has choices and decisions, but I ask and pray that you will always choose God, no matter what the situation or whatever is happening in your life.  Remember, God does love you; one way that love is symbolized is by the gift of his Son, Jesus Christ our Savior.

In spirit, Rev. Darin
