The last few months have not been spectacular. Black flowers have been in bloom and my attempts to dig them out have been feeble. But I have been praying and God has chosen this time of all times to obviously answer my prayers. I have more evangelistic opportunities then I know what to do with, my bible study group is going really well, Joel's schooling is finally working, I'm writing half-way decent lyrics, I'm feeling not quite so useless pastorally, and now some haunting sins are starting to haunt less.
God blesses us when we don't deserve it. Perhaps he blesses us most when it's most clear that we don't deserve it.
