Psalm 119:8 I will observe your statutes; do not utterly forsake me. * * * * * * * * * One of the great advantages of being older - yes, there are a few - is that we have more personal examples of how God has woven himself into our story. Most of the time we are necessarily focused on the matters at hand, the urgent issues in front of us. We are staring at the undersided of a tapastry and attending to the knots. Every once in a while, we may glance at the masterpiece of woven days and discover the relentless color of God's grace making even the most complicated patches a part of the whole. It is there we discover how many times we have uttered "God, please don't give up on me" and God answered, "There, there, little one. I've gotch ya." * * * * * * * * * What can I do for you today, Lord?
