I curled up in my favorite chair just after five in the morning. I had awakened by Joel’s cry and rushed upstairs to give him a drink of water and then instead of going back to bed for maybe another hour, I went ahead and stayed awake. Fixed the coffee. Pulled out the Bible and the devotionals that don’t see enough of my attention. There. I said it.
Did they rush out doing a Kevin Costner, “Prince of Thieves” move and kissed the ground? “England, England! Home!” Or, you know. Wherever exactly they were.
"... 'For I know the plans I have for you,'
declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you
and not harm you, plans to give you
a hope and a future.'..."
