Goodness and Mercy

"Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life." That's a bold statement from King David when he was just a shepherd and had his whole life ahead of him. How could he know that goodness and mercy would follow him? How can anyone know that mercy will be a theme of their lives? The answer of course is simply that David knew His God.

As Kathryn works another day and Qavah enjoys her time with me, I can say with assurance that over the past year "goodness and mercy" have followed us. It is pure joy to have arrived in this place. The last two days have been restful with quietness and peace strengthening us for the days ahead. I'm so thankful for the rest that was waiting for me beside the still waters.
