Don't ya just love that phrase. The Lord has highlighted it to me in a big way this week. I don't think I have ever noticed it before. It's smashed in between 'pressed on every side but not crushed' and 'persecuted not abandoned'. It was so encouraging to think that the wise men and followers of Jesus sometimes wondered what was up with whatever was going on. (that's 2 Corinthians 4 by the way).
On another note, we just had a delicious time with our friends from Airdrie whose house we are in the process of buying. Our current plan is to rent out our house and finalize the deal on their house. So if y'all know of 4 singles of the same gender that want a lovely house to rent, we've got one... If you've been praying for us in this house adventure keep praying! If you haven't been, please start!
Sparrow, see what you have to look forward to in moving adventures - perplexed but NOT despairing! Lots of great character building stuff!
