Us: Are you open?
Her: Why yes.
Us: Well the door was locked so we weren't sure
Her: Well of course it was. We don't open the door until someone rings the bell. But you can come in this way.
So she takes us to the front door and says-if you had done it like you were supposed to I would have started here to tell you about the iron railings.
I don't think we've ever been so thoroughly or nicely scolded for entering the wrong door. What happened to back door guests are best?
Now it's back to reality-and waiting, and praying, and trusting, and doubting and trusting again. About the only thing I'm sure of these days is that I don't know what will happen. But I'm clinging to Jesus because without him there is no way we can have any peace, whatever the future brings. We covet your prayers.
Also, please remember to be praying for the family in our community who lost their little girl. The pager number is 334-705-9211. Thanks, friends!
