Someone just posted this on our church-family Facebook page...
Praying this for my friend Pauline today,
and for my cousin Wayne and his family
who continue to need our prayers for encouragement
in his and their ongoing long suffering!
I'm still reading the book about Charles H. Spurgeon's wife, Susie's life...
and am utterly inspired and astonished at the humility and faithfulness in their devotion
to their Lord and Saviour, through so much sickness, pain and hardship!
My friend's recent illness which caused her to miss her son's wedding last Saturday
fills our hearts and prayers with pitying pleas for God's sufficient grace to sustain her...
Praying for healing and health so she may attend her next son's wedding in February.
Will you pray too, for her strength for today?
Yon tray soft-tilts to gilt the eastward edge of earth and sky
Dawn’s blushing fringe expands to tinge then wash the night awry
Where star-eyed hope and dream is like the little lark that sings
Before the darkness disappears and morning spreads its wings
Where mercy never falters, to altars of human hearts
God’s everlasting goodness His unfailing love imparts
His grace provides the sacrifice for worship’s offerings
Always sufficient for the mission that each new day brings
Dawn tilts a tray of gold and gray; ahoy, with joy we rise
To take up the cross of today with grace our God supplies
He does not leave us comfortless or helpless in the strife
Goodness and mercy follows us all the days of our life

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
