A Safe Arrival

Psalm 145 1-3,5,8,20a

I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.
Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.
Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.
I will speak of the glorious honor of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.
The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.
The LORD preserveth all them that love him.

My dear friend and her children arrived safely in Lewiston last night. I can hardly contain my excitement. Seeing her and the kids again will be just like being home. Ang is such a special person that knowing her has helped me to understand myself. To quote Emerson, "The only way to have a friend is to be one." Ang has not just been a friend, but almost an extension of my own soul.

Ang and I were introduced through a mutual friend about 4 years ago and she has been a sweet balm of encouragement, joy and healing during some of the most difficult times of my life.

This sister is one of my heroines of the faith; she is a Berean, if you will. I am constantly challenged by her yearning and seeking the truths of Scripture. The Lord has used her to strengthen me in my faith for which I am truly grateful.

Please be in prayer as she seeks work and housing to support her family.

Psalm 107 1-7
O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.
They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.
Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.
And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.
