The coordinates on earth in the place of my abode are 38.57933° N, -121.4909° E. The Winters are generally mild, but the Summers are hot. I am presently sitting 46ft above Sea Level. The Dead Sea is 1407 ft. below sea level, the lowest point on land. I am 7,382 miles from The Dead Sea. Today is June 28, 2021, and in my neck of the woods, it's 3:17 AM. It is presently 64 degrees F, and today's high is to be 98. The 10 day forecast ranges from a low of 89 to a high of 99. I must say that I am pleased and relieved that the mercury will be below the century mark. The chance of rain today is 2%. That puts rain in the category of 'Fat Chance'. "What does a Fat Chance mean?", you ask. Definition of 'fat chance'. fat chance. phrase. If you say that there is fat chance of something happening, you mean that you do not believe that it will happen.* Generally, 2% of anything happening takes it out of the realm of probability. However, 2% of anything happening still remains in the realm of possibility.** A few weeks ago, while watching a video from a America Got Talent TV program, the spirit of faith leaped inside of me when I heard a young lady say, "I have cancer and a 2% chance of survival". She also stated, "It's not zero". She then sang a song entitled, "It's okay", and further ignited my faith when she said that you can't wait for things to be good before you decide to be happy. ************************************************************* Consider this:*** Sep 27, 2012 · The topic of said program was the incredible odds one sperm from male ejaculation faces to reach and then fertilize a female egg. The average male ejaculate contains around 250million sperm, of that figure around 200 approximately make it to a female egg. Of this number obviously only one is successful in fertilizing the female egg and starting off the conception of life. ************************************************************* Wow! How amazing! How incredible! There was a 250 million to 1 chance that I would ever be conceived and become a human being. I'd say that only God could make something like that happen. 062821PS *Reference: **Matthew 19:26 ***
