I’ve been working my way through Job these last few days. I have actually never read Job before and the story is catching me by surprise.

18 “But the mountain falls and crumbles away,
and the rock is removed from its place;
19 the waters wear away the stones;
the torrents wash away the soil of the earth;
so you destroy the hope of man.
20 You prevail forever against him, and he passes;
you change his countenance, and send him away.
21 His sons come to honor, and he does not know it;
they are brought low, and he perceives it not.
22 He feels only the pain of his own body,
and he mourns only for himself.”

“…so you destroy the hope of man.” That’s a pretty weighty statement. It makes me cringe…how will God respond?

Lately: still enjoying being back in Ames, moved rooms in the Mansion (my walls are now green!), painted a lamp, running, and saw one of my best friends, Ashley Olsen (now Miles!), get married yesterday!!
