Today has been an extremely windy and blustery day outside, our house is rattling and shaking, and I can almost feel a slight breeze through the closed windows. Ambria and I made an adventure out of going to get the mail and trying to not get blown away! We laughed...
Due to the windy weather, I was thinking about posting a status update on facebook about feeling like the big bad wolf was outside trying to huff and puff and blow our house down, and how it isn't going to work because our house is made of bricks...but then I thought about it more and how people could read into that simple status update. (Because that is what people do, whether their thinking is true or not).
Wow, there are some major parallels with that fairy tale and our life right now. The 'big, bad wolf' will not be able to blow our family, our home, our house, our life down, because it is built upon The Rock. The bullets of criticism and rocks may hurt or attempt to harm our family, our home, our house, and our life, but they will not destroy.
I do recall that at the end of the story (in the version we have on our shelf), the wolf gets killed and the protagonists wins. And I do recall that at the end of the Bible, the good guys win!
