Comfort

1. He giveth more grace as our burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength as our labors increase;
To added afflictions He addeth His mercy,
To multiplied trials He multiplies peace.

2. When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources
Our Father’s full giving is only begun.

3. Fear not that thy need shall exceed His provision,
Our God ever yearns His resources to share;
Lean hard on the arm everlasting, availing;
The Father both thee and thy load will upbear.

4. His love has no limits, His grace has no measure,
His power no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.

("He Giveth More Grace" by Annie J. Flint)

Thank you. Oh, what a comfort...tears fall from my eyes. Love you longer than ... well a long time woman!! Longer than...I feel like breaking out in an old Dan Fogelberg song...but I don't have the voice and I am sure you would appreciate a big old fluffy sheep hug more. LOL!!

JOdi:
My faithful comment-er. It's always fun to get comments!!

I enjoy reading your thoughts here and on your blog, as well.

Just so you know, I have tried to comment on your blog-writing, but I think I can't because I am not part of your list or group...does that sound right?

Off to Florida tomorrow!
