As Dependable as the Weather

November 30, 2011

Penn of Denn
Awesome weather last week.  On Wednesday we were digging out from 35 cms of snow and on Saturday I was in the city doing hospital calls and I had the roof down on my car.  Gotta love Nova Scotia weather.  If nothing else, it certainly gives us something to talk about.  In one conversation someone said “The only thing you can depend on with Nova Scotia weather is that you can’t depend on it.”  Which although a fairly innocent comment about metrological affairs would be a fairly scathing comment about someone’s character.
A very good question I would think would have to be “How dependable am I?”  Jesus told us to let our “yes” be “yes” and our “no” be “no”.  Is that a reality in our lives?  Can people depend on us to do what we said we would do, when we said we would do it?  And if they can’t then we have a problem bigger than strange weather patterns, it becomes a matter of integrity.  And you can be assured people will talk about that just like they talk about the weather.  I hope nobody will have reason to say “The only thing you can depend on with Denn is that you can’t depend on Denn.” 
  
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
