GOD PAUSE: Did you have a good Christmas? Michele and I had a great time with a lot of our family. And our son, Jeremy, made the best smoked brisket I believe I've ever had! God is so very good! Especially in how He treats you and me. So, I was reading this morning a verse in Psalm 145:8 where David says “You are kind and tenderhearted to those who don't deserve it and very patient with people who fail you. Your love is like a flooding river overflowing its banks with kindness.” Dear Papa, our lives flood over with your goodness to us. Even when we mess up or fail in some ways, you still love us. Help me and my friend continue to walk in the light of who you are. Amen and amen.
