     I love the way that God works! I love the way that God reveals Himself so clearly just when we need to see. Just this morning I was headed down to the creek to do some clearing of brush. I have been trying to get our creek bank cleared up so that when warm weather arrives we can keep a clear view of any snakes. As I was walking down the hill I was pondering the day’s events. Today we had a nice article about our family published in a local newspaper. A few weeks ago there was another article published in the news letter for my employer.

Righteous Souls Vexed

Count the Cost

            Over the past seven days I had one of those weeks that seemed to never end. I’ve been working on a project at my job that is the largest in scope of any we have ever done. All of the technicians in my group are working long hours and the end is not in sight. It has been a long drawn out ordeal of replacing systems in offices and there is little room for error.
