Even the sparrow finds a home and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at your altars, O LORD of Hosts, my King and my God. Blessed are those who dwell in your house, ever singing your praise.

Affliction and Love
We are fighting against the health care bills being proposed. But if they pass, how shall we understand it?
I read a great quote from A.W. Pink this morning: "Chastening is not only reconcilable with "God's lovingkindness, but it is the effect and expression of it. It would much quieten the minds of God's people if they would remember that His covenant love binds Him to lay on them seasonable correction. Afflictions are necessary for us: 'In their affliction they will seek Me early.'" Hosea 5:15
