faith in the face of adversity . . .


How much longer, LORD, will You forget about me?
Will it be forever? how long will You hide?

How long must I be confused and miserable all day?
How long will my enemies keep beating me down?

Please listen, LORD God, and answer my prayers.
Make my eyes sparkle again, or else I will fall into the sleep of death.

My enemies will say, "Now we've won!"
They will be greatly pleased when I am defeated.

I trust Your love, and I feel like celebrating
because You rescued me.

You have been good to me, LORD,
and I will sing about You.

Psalm 13 (CEV)

You and yours have truly faced adversity recently as well as in the past beginning with your wreck to the loss of Everett! Those words of Promise in Psalm 13 says it all!
Love you my friend!
