The city of RussVegas received a visit from us all today. The goal was to get all our new licenses, insurance, tags, library cards and everything else related to being a good Pope County citizen taken care of, but our sad discovery was that the court house closes at four. We did visit the library, signed up for cards and even checked out a couple of books.
Bible study at Wes and Audrey’s tonight produced several surprises. For one thing, I believe I might have out eaten everyone. Jacinda couldn’t believe her eyes when I emerged with a plate heaped with seconds. I think she was over her surprise by my fourth plate.
The second item was a beautiful answer to prayer which Emily and I saw enacted before our eyes. It might seem like a small thing to someone else, but both of us knew it was the Lord saying, “I did hear you. I AM working on them. All of them. And you, too.”
Lord, I love to seek Thy face
And come before Thee through Thy grace
Because I know Thou hearest me
Outside of time’s mortality.
And each time that I come to Thee
Already Thou hast answered me
The fitting answer that Thy heart
Hast planned before creation’s start.
