God Is Good

Luke just sent this to me in an email, and wants you to know that he didn't write it to be a fancy pants blogger--it was just supposed to be an email to me. In all seriousness, it's really good and true.  


God is being good to us right now.  He's using us, he's giving us some peace, we have two fun kids, we love each other.

I'm writing mostly because sometimes I feel like I'm responsible for it.  Like I've worked really hard or been particularly clever to bring it about.  I know that's not true even when I feel like it is.  

He's been so gracious to us.  

I remember my affliction and my wandering,
the bitterness and the gall
I well remember them and my soul is downcast within me
but this I call to mind and therefore I have hope
because of the Lord's unfailing love we are not consumed
for his mercies never cease
they are new every morning
Great is your faithfulness!
I have said to myself, "the Lord is my portion"
Therefore I will wait for Him.  
(Lam. 3:19-24)
