Even so...

Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines;
Though the labor of the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food;
Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, And there be no herd in the stalls,
Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my Salvation.
The Lord God is my strength.

Habakkuk 3:17-19

hey kiddo.....one of my favorite passages. The prophet didn't come to that opinion or belief /declaration easily and I know you haven't either! I think you read it as a prayer to God , with 'fear and trembling' but in a sort of Client Eastwood style to yourself and the devil! "Go ahead (thoughts, beliefs, memories, demons, et al) ..make my day...this is God's truth and I will speak it...........He (GOD) is all over this statement because it is truth, so all of you back off"

I really needed that verse right now. I am amazed at how, even in your grieving and pain, you continue to minister to others. You are amazing Samantha!!
