We read together this morning from Psalm 13 in the Message version of the Bible. It says:
1 Long enough, GOD—you’ve ignored me long enough. I’ve looked at the back of your head long enough.
2 Long enough I’ve carried this ton of trouble, lived with a stomach full of pain. Long enough my arrogant enemies have looked down their noses at me.
3 Take a good look at me, GOD, my God; I want to look life in the eye,
4 So no enemy can get the best of me or laugh when I fall on my face.
5 I’ve thrown myself headlong into your arms—I’m celebrating your rescue.
6 I’m singing at the top of my lungs, I’m so full of answered prayers.
Well that just about sums up this day. Happy Birthday my glorious wife - and many, many happy returns!
