Before I could get on the freeway to leave for TX, I was pulled over and given a ticket for doing 45 in a 35 MPH zone! After I got on the freeway and calmed down, I put in the CD of our pastor’s sermon on “Let’s Fight for the Family” and learned that I had inadvertently grabbed Part 2. I intended to grab Part 1. They read the text for the message:
Neh 4:7 Now it happened, when Sanballat, Tobiah, the Arabs, the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites heard that the walls of Jerusalem were being restored and the gaps were beginning to be closed, that they became very angry, :8 and all of them conspired together to come and attack Jerusalem and create confusion.
As soon as I heard that, I understood what was happening with our family. I had said those very words when describing Anson to Mom (see 5/19 History entry). The Lord had just used those very words to describe Jennifer’s situation that very day during lunch (see 6/10 Words entry)
