117 E Elm Street
We normally send out our e-newsletter every other Tuesday. I'm working on it now - on Wednesday - and realized that I am, in fact, a "day late." That immediately made me think about the old saying "A day late and a dollar short." Most of us feel more than a dollar short right now, so it is a poignant reminder of our times.
I cannot help but think of those who regularly live paycheck to paycheck. This can happen for a myriad of reasons and I don't want to get down in the weeds on the 'whys' of that right now. The reality is that many people do live with very little margin and I can imagine that the current gas and food prices are creating anxiety and concern.
My thoughts turn to the fast food worker who served my drive-thru lunch today. He was kind and efficient and served me well. I know he does not get paid a lot and I drove away, praying for him. I bet life, at least his financial life, is especially hard right now.
Please take a minute to listen to this beautiful song, designed to help you meditate on and memorize John 16:33. I hope it helps you focus on a God who is "right on time and never lacking anything!"
