Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep Your word. Psalm 119:67
When God's children try to run away, He has to bring them back,
And chastisement is His measure to keep us on the chosen track.
The Lord chastises in many ways,and surely each one hurts,
And you can be sure of this: recipients get their just deserts.
Discipline is applied to those who go astray; will they return?
They will keep His word for they are always the Father's concern.(RP)
I had a tooth filled yesterday. Margie goes for her cleaning next week. I went to Lynden to speak to a young man who with his wife is going to the mission field. He wanted to ask some questions. We met for coffee and a visit. Margie was home preparing a delicious meat loaf which we enjoyed at lunch. She was feeling better after having been ill all last week. A fairly brisk breeze is blowing out there. Yesterday the temperature was warm for this area. Our evaporative cooler felt good. Thanks for your prayers.
