I have a framed copy of a Rembrant “Jesus Calms the Storm” painting. The scene depicts Jesus and the disciples
in the midst of the storm. He paints Peter reaching for Jesus to wake him up. John stands beside Peter ready to
pick Jesus up. And the other 10 disciples hold on so that they won’t fall overboard. There are suppose to be 13
people in the boat, but when you count the individuals there are 14. Who is the 14th person? You look closer,
and there is a man in the center of the painting with one hand holding on to a rope and the other hand on his
forehead gripped with fear. The 14th man is Rembrant himself. He painted himself in the boat with the
disciples. We are like the 12 disciples. When we decide to follow Jesus Christ we place ourselves in the same
boat with Him.

I believe when a pilgrim says, “I’m counting on Christ,” we place ourselves under the spiritual navigation of the
Holy Spirit. We humbly submit to God’s authority and power as we ride the crest of the wave with our eyes on
the cross of Christ.

Don’t throw yourself overboard and abandon Christ’s call. It is better to stay with Jesus, and ride out the
spiritual storm. And lest you forget, Jesus always has the last word, “Peace, be still!”

                                            Mary had a little lamb,
                                         His fleece was white as snow.
                                        And everywhere that Mary went,
                                          The Lamb was sure to go.

                                       He followed her to school each day,
                                            T’wasn’t even in the rule.
                                       It made the children laugh and play,
                                            To have a Lamb at school.

                                     And then the rules all changed one day,
                                                Illegal it became;
                                      To bring the Lamb of God to school,
                                           Or even speak His Name.

                                         Every day got worse and worse,
                                           And days turned into years.
                                        Instead of hearing children laugh,
                                          We heard gunshots and tears.

                                       What must we do to stop the crime,
                                           That’s in our schools today?
                                     Let’s let the Lamb come back to school,
                                            And teach our kids to pray!

                               Please pray for our kids as they return to school.

                                                               Think About It!
A little girl walked daily to and from school. Though the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming, she made her
daily trip to school. As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with thunder and lightning. The mother of the little girl felt
concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school, and she herself feared that the electrical storm might
harm her child. Following the roar of thunder, lightning, like at each flash sword would cut through the sky. Full of concern, the mother
quickly got in her car and drove along the route to her child’s school. As she did so, she saw her little girl walking along, but at each flash of
lightning, the child would stop, look up and smile. Another and another were to follow quickly, each with the little girl stopping, looking up
and smiling. Finally, the mother called over to her child and asked, “what are you doing?” The child answered, “smiling, God just keeps
taking pictures of me.”
