Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr in 1839 coined this phrase: "plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose" — "the more it changes, the more it's the same thing".
That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun." (Ecclesiastes 1:9) Another week has come and gone and I do hope you and yours have had a good week. God has been good to allow us the privileges we enjoy in living out the life He has given to us. We do know there are many who deal everyday with a variety of challenges. The official report from our government says everything is doing great in the economy. We know of many who cannot agree because they continue to struggle financially. Others are dealing with health related complications, family issues, and a myriad of personal difficulties. That too comes with the fabric of life. The old hymn echoes biblical truth in describing the heart of our Lord and Savior in His feelings towards us: "O yes, He cares, I know He cares, His heart is touched with my grief; When the days are weary, The long night dreary, I know my Savior cares." That is a great thought to end on this week. May God help us all to have a great Saturday and Lord's Day Sunday. I will do my best to catch back up with you come next Monday. Amen. .....More later.
