It's Been a While

Psalm 7:17
"I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High."

We know, it's been almost a week since we've posted anything on the blog. It's not that we didn't want to write, but circumstances kept us from writing. That's actually a good thing on a number of fronts. My business has picked up finally, after not doing much for a month. More important, Tammy has been getting a little bit better each day. There hasn't been any radical changes, but a week later we can see some improvement.

A lot of people have written to us in the past few weeks telling us that what we've written has been a blessing to them. We'll repeat what we wrote a couple of months ago: what's good is God; the rest is (us). We don't claim to have any special insight into the will of God. While we believe God allows things to happen to show His power and strength, which gives us a chance to show our obedience to Him, we don't consider ourselves worthy of any praise, let alone the grace He's shown us through this journey.

When things are going smoothly, it's easy to take grace for granted. Even in the midst of a big hurdle, when the recovery is progressing according to schedule, we can get complacent and forget to thank God for His provision. Our goal is not have to go through another calamity to remember to praise and thank Him.
