Do you recognize the words above? They are scripture you know.
I was sitting on the porch with friends the other night and the lady was sharing her blessings with us. I was listening intently - you see, unless God intervenes cancer will soon take her life. She is several years younger than I - and yet she feels blessed. Can that be? After all their only child, a daughter was taken by that dreaded disease just a few months ago. The daughter was going through other tough issues as well and left behind three children. Yet - my lady friend considers herself blessed. Her husband laughed, joke and wept with us - soon he may be without his beloved wife - already having lost his daughter. We laughed, we joked, teared up, but had a nice visit thanking God for his blessings. The rest of that verse says: "... right in the presence of my enemies." Part of the 23rd Psalm (The Message). God loves you and will provide even when your "enemies" surround you! How are you doing today? You know he is right there, providing every thing you need - right?
Mama & Papa sure love you all - pray for us to be encouragers!
