Work has been a bit slow so I have managed to get in a bit more reading lately. Reflection: Psalm 12:6 New International Version (NIV) "The words of the Lord are flawless, like silver purified in a crucible, like gold refined seven times."
There is construction going on here at the moment, fixing the unwanted handiwork of water and old white ant damage on the south side of our house. Reflection: Psalm 11:3-4 New International Version (NIV) "When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do? The Lord is in his holy temple; the Lord is on his heavenly throne."
I'm glad the pesky branches that fall from the Liquid Amber have been turned into this neat pile using my new battery chain saw because the days are getting cooler. In life, answers to "Why?" may not be clear and neat but we are encouraged -- God has things in hand. Reflection: Psalm 10:2,14 New International Version (NIV) "In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak, who are caught in the schemes he devises. … But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted; you consider their grief and take it in hand."
