COMFORT.

TODAY'S BEEN A ROUGH ONE. WE WERE WOKEN UP WITH A PHONE CALL FROM A DEAR OLDER LADY IN OUR CHURCH...SHE'S ALWAYS AT CHURCH, ALWAYS HELPING, ALWAYS DOING HER PART...NEVER MAKING AN EXCUSE FOR NOT COMING. HER HUSBAND PASSED AWAY THIS MORNING. MR. BILL WAS 89 YEARS OLD, AND ABOUT 85 POUNDS SOAKING WET. HE WAS ONE OF THE KINDEST MEN I'VE EVER KNOWN. THESE ARE THE TIMES THAT IT HURTS SO BADLY TO BE THE PASTORING FAMILY, THE ONES WHO ARE THERE TO NOT ONLY GRIEVE WITH YOU, BUT BRING COMFORT. IT'S HARD TO DO THAT WHEN SADNESS FILLS YOUR HEART. PLEASE BE PRAYING FOR THIS FAMILY.

"BLESSED BE THE GOD AND FATHER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, THE FATHER OF MERCIES AND GOD OF ALL COMFORT, WHO COMFORTS US IN ALL OUR AFFLICTION SO THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO COMFORT THOSE WHO ARE IN ANY AFFLICTION WITH THE COMFORT WITH WHICH WE OURSELVES ARE COMFORTED BY GOD. FOR JUST AS THE SUFFERINGS OF CHRIST ARE OURS IN ABUNDANCE, SO ALSO OUR COMFORT IS ABUNDANT THROUGH CHRIST." *II CORINTHIANS*

I had found your blog from ethiopia here we come and scrolled down, viewing your large list of books and just wondered if you had heard of paperbackswap.com? Check it out it has saved us loads of money and is so easy to find books at goodwill to post...you'll see what I mean when you see their site. I love reading too and was encouraged by how much scripture you have on your blog - thanks! Blessings - Miranda (www.themartinsandethiopia.blogspot.com)
