winning and losing and losing

I am an SF Giant's fan.  A fair weather fan, I guess.

They have lost 10 of their last 13  and most of those to lower echelon teams.  I am tired of watching them; in fact, my patience grows thin as I watch them either not pitch or not hit or both.

They started the season with a  soft whimper that crescendoed to a loud roar.  I loved watching them and applauded their better-than-expected fortunes that watched them climb to a 42-21 record, the best in the majors.  Since then, reality has set in.

And I don't want to watch any more.

I wonder as I sit and mope in my office/bedroom as they are losing badly again to a bad team, how it would be if God was a fair weather fan of mine--if He only showed up to applaud my occasional victories and disappeared at my recurrent defeats.

God is a more than fair weather fan of mine.  He is my advocate, my counselor, my Great Physician, my constant friend.

He's not like me.

Maybe I will figure it out.  Until then I'm in my office.
