xxvii

Kept for another year by the grace of God.

Though the fig tree does not bud
and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
and no cattle in the stalls,
yet I will rejoice in the LORD,
I will be joyful in God my Savior
-
Habakkuk 3v17-18

Whatever the circumstance,
Hallelujah, what a saviour.

Humbled. Amazed. Silenced. Rejoicing.

  1. Do I detect a birthday Mr Bish? If so, many happy returns. If not, I feel a little silly now. Oh well. Have a lovely day either way!

    That had me confused for a moment...
