How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? How long must I take counsel in my soul and have sorrow in my heart all the day? How long shall my enemy be exalted over me? Consider and answer me, O Lord my God; light up my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death, lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed over him,” lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken. But I have trusted in your steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation. I will sing to the Lord, because he has dealt bountifully with me. (Psalm 13:1–6 ESV)
Last night my Pastor and his wife came over to pray with us and to share this portion of Scripture. It was a sweet time of encouragement and tears for my beloved. After their departure, two ladies came over bringing us a surprise cooler of ten meals from six different families. Before they left, another friend came by for hugs and to deliver yet another meal. We feel very loved on by God through his church.
Ali worked so very hard yesterday to finish Mercy’s urn. She did such a beautiful job and has only to write the date upon the lid.
Blessings to you as another day goes by.
