An amazing little find

Today is Ashlynn's due date.  Thanks for all of the prayers and words of encouragement.  God holds me close as I hope in Him and I am given peace and joy.

I just came across an amazing little book online.  
The Misery of Job and the Mercy of God 
Piper poetically tells the story of Job.  Surrounding his poetry, beautiful photos compliment the story of suffering and mercy.  Check out this jewel!

"And now come broken to the cross,
Where Christ embraced all human loss,
And let us bow before the throne
Of God who gives and takes his own,
And promises--whatever toll
He takes--to satisfy our soul.
Come, learn the lesson of the rod:
The treasure we have in God.
He is not poor nor much enticed
Who loses everything but Christ."

Thinking of you today. I hope the day has been peaceful. Tomorrow, when you wake up, you will know that you have survived this day, too.
