That’s not me in the public library, but I am joining the young beauties and various other sorts there today. Having trouble with the computer at home today. Looking on the bright side, however, it did not crash. Hopefully my material is still all there waiting for me.
I’m grumped this week because of being suckered by a law firm who filed a lien for about $7500 on my property. I was never notified and just luckily found out about it. Fortunately, I have a friend who charged me a bare minimum to go to court for me. ($1500 – other lawyers just said it wasn’t worth fighting because it would cost too much.) The rascals did not appear before court. Of course, I won and got a judgment for lawyers fees. The lawyer says I have a winnable case; but the problem is that the statute of limitation is past. Almost makes me want to call somebody some names! 😀
But then I remember to sit back and leave it to Jesus who will use this to make me a bit more like him if I cooperate. So I’m speaking peace to my irritation. The following story puts my problem in perspective.
Early in the 1900’s George A. Young was a young country preacher of limited finances. After a long struggle, George was able to move his family into a small home that he had built himself. He continued preaching in rural communities.
One time while he was out preaching, his house was set afire by some young thugs who did not like his preaching. He reaffirmed his faith by writing a song that has been encouragement to many through the years.
God Leads Us Along.
(verse 3) Tho’ sorrows befall us, and Satan oppose,
God leads His dear children along;
Through grace we can conquer, defeat all our foes,
God leads His dear children along.
Some thro’ the waters, some thro’ the flood,
Some thro’ the fire, but all thro’ the blood;
Some thro’ great sorrow, but God gives a song;
In the night season and all the day long.
