It’s been over a week since the earthquake in Japan. Yesterday we started air strikes in Libya. This week our friend Pat received bad news about her health. Yesterday a young man in line school fell from the top of a 35′ pole and died. He left behind an expecting wife and two children. So much bad news. The sermon we heard this morning was about God’s providence. That was good timing because I needed to be reminded that God is in control. He really is. In spite of our failures and weaknesses He holds and directs our lives, and He’s not caught off guard by anything that happens.
