Perhaps it's writer's block. Maybe spiritual dryness. Possibly the fact that I can't post on the three computers in our home, my laptop is giving me problems and my camera broke and may be unfixable (if that's a word).
As I drove to work tonight I was missing the encouragement of one of our most faithful pals, Passing-Thru (Bob). I e-mailed him tonight to see how he's doing. My dear friend Terry e-mailed me tonight because she was concerned. Thank you, dear one! You are a special gift from the Father!
My ear infection continues to plague me. Tomorrow I'll go back to the hospital to get some help, hopefully. They changed my medication last Thursday but it's still not getting any better. My ear, nose and throat specialist is mourning the loss of his father and won't be in his office 'til Thursday.
Carol and I are busy getting our home ready for two open houses this weekend, Saturday and Sunday afternoons. As you know this is a very painful time for us as we seek to get back on our feet financially. Thanks for your prayers!
So, having said all that several things remain constant:
- God remains faithful to His Word
- He continues to encourage me in the face of the temporary trials we face
- He uses marred, broken vessels like me to accomplish His purposes
- I'm awed by God's majesty
- I'm humbled by His unconditional love
So, dear friends, thanks for hearing me out. Be strong in the Lord. Keep looking to Jesus. Trust Him implicitly. Keep a high view of scripture. Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. Tell others of His love.
You are loved,
