Been cleaning out stuff in these days-
shredded old tax papers,
and also just MOVED some piles.
Maybe where I can't SEE the piles.
But, in the bottom of a stash was this post card.
I had to LAUGH out loud-
well, not at the Bible passage.
But, the beginning-
I Hope you Know....
I was taken back to a household of 3 young girls.
Probably almost 30 years ago
and remember hearing many statements
from the ladies begin with....
I HOPE YOU KNOW.
It was usually stated as a sort of alarm-
with emphasis, and maybe a bit of attitude.
Whatever they said AFTER THAT
was VERY IMPORTANT.
So I sat and paid attention to this card-
I hope you know there is
SHELTER from this storm.
Shelter under the shadow of the Almighty.
Clasping this card in hand,
I simply sat and prayed.
For the Sick
For an unknown Future
with a Known God.
