Which WayWhen do you feel that you have the best handle on the will of God? For me, it seems like it’s almost after the situation has come and gone. Looking back we can see with better clarity that truly God was working in the event and that He arranged thing correctly. The other time that we can see God’s will plainly is when there’s no other thing to do but to turn to Him. Many people down through the ages have had to rely totally on God, and many people that were used mightily of Him were brought low first.

The Husband’s Love for the Wife

Happy CoupleAnother aspect to this discussion has to be the care for which the man had for his woman in the Old Testament. This is seen in a variety of locations.

In the story of Ruth and Boaz, Boaz takes up the cause of Naomi not having kin and Ruth’s husband’s death by being her kinsman redeemer. Jacob was willing to work for Laban for 14 years to get Rachel, his daughter. Proverbs put a high value on a good wife. The whole Song of Solomon places the physical and intimate parts of a married couple, putting emphasis on the love between the couple.

Printer

Is anyone else upset at the cost of ink jet cartridges for printers? We have a digital camera, and have to print out our pictures. I have an Epson Color Photo 825– and I went to buy both a color and black and white cartridge last night. After the ink and the photo paper, the total cost was close to $80. And then they sell the next model printer for just about that. Talk about the Gillette Razor subscription model to the extreme.

What’s latest in the news… Does anyone else find it interesting that the cardinals use smoke signals to tell whether thier vote was successful? How about that it is a democratic decision to figure out who the next “Vicar of Christ on Earth” is? How is it that they cannot agree on the first three times? Shouldn’t it be obvious? Are they making someone the Pope, or recognizing that this person is? And what was the guy they chose before he became Pope? I mean, can their be multiples that are that close to God?
