God Comes Through Again

Oh happy day. Three Lois Lenski's and one Scholastic all at a church rummage sale this morning. God saved them in that box for me--I just know He did--the Lenski's being my second chance for, years ago, I became too ruthless and sent my few copies to Salvation Army, thinking, "I'll just borrow her books from the library should the reading urge arrive." Well, years later, I no longer visit libraries, but rather,, both for books in the mail and free ebooks for my free Kindle Cloud Reader. But Lenski's in my hands! Nothing beats that.

Thank-you to You know who You are.



"Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
    and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness will go before you,
    and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I."   ... more from Isaiah 58

(A sweet, tiny cosmos from my yard.)

Wonderful book finds, the ideal box of books just for you. I loved reading the Marguerite Henry books, I think Sea Star is one of hers.

I too often find it necessary to shelter from the world at large. That is not to say that I am completely anti-social and a hermit but I do spend a vast quantity of my time alone, contemplating this world and wondering at it. I get very weary and worn down with the cares of others and the ways I see of the world leaders. But I cling to the Hope of the Word, the Living God, the friend who is closer than a brother, and ask daily for Him to strengthen me to withstand the tides. I never expected to feel the burdens of the world as I do, but it's what He's apparently called me to do. I cannot see the outcome but I have His assurance.
