RAINEX. Have you ever tried that on your car windshield? If you have not, GO BUY IT TODAY. Terry has always used it on our cars. I think they use it exclusively on the airplanes...imagine those big birds in the sky and a rain storm. That jingles my nerves.

We were on our way early this morning through treacherous traffic to Metro VW. My baby car needed a new fan for the heater/AC and there were drips of oil on the floor of the garage and she needed a new fuel filter. Irregardless, as we left at 8 this morning (Yes, that is why I am blogging late) it was in rain rain rain and sleet sleet sleet the further west we drove toward the mid cities area. Terry had a new coating of Rainex on the windshield and we were driving along with out the tension of the blades going whish whish and click click and the nervous scurry of the windshield wipper darting back and forth in front of our line of vision. Every one around us had their blades on high. Did you ever notice how much tension builds inside you and inside your car when those wipers are on, and especially if they are going fast?

Well rainex lubes the surface of the window and the rain literally rolls off on its own. Why would I write about this? Only I would relate it to God. Our relationship with God is our Rainex. Our prayers and constant communication enables us to allow the rain and storms in our life to hit us but not affect us spiritually inside. The rain cannot destroy our vision ahead. God keeps everything rolling off of us as we weather the storms in our lives. God never promised us an easy life with out the storms, but He did promise to walk through the difficult times. He is our eyes when we cannot see. He is our guide when we are lost. He is our constant provider of ALL we need. With Him we can let that rain roll right off with out running in circles simply because we believe.

Joy and abundance!

"Then the Lord said to him, "No, your servant will not be your heir, for you will have a son of your own to inherit everything I am giving you." Then the Lord brought Abram outside beneath the night sky and told him, "Look up into the heavens and count the stars if you can. Your descendants will be like that - too many to count!" And Abram believed the Lord, and the Lord declared him righteous because of his faith." Genesis 15:4-6

What a truly amazing gift you have, taking Rainex and turning it into a message.
I share your blog with all of my family and friends and today I reminded all of them to read about Rainex.
Love you sister,
Jan

That is a great analogy. I love it. Rainex..... who'd have thought you could relate that to our spiritual walk. Blessings. Susan
