Our son's student loan application is still pending. Yet another piece of information is required, another signature, another shuffling back and forth of information across the miles.
After two days of rain, I noticed a small stain on the living room ceiling this afternoon that wasn't there before. The roofer will look at it on Monday, but we have two more days of rain ahead of us.
And I woke up with a sore throat that hasn't gone away.
Just another ordinary week.
If the LORD had not been on our side-- let Israel say--
if the LORD had not been on our side when men attacked us,
when their anger flared against us, they would have swallowed us alive;
the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us,
the raging waters would have swept us away.
Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
We have escaped like a bird out of the fowler's snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped.
Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
Yes, an ordinary week, but lived with faith in an extraordinary God.
