The best intentions...

The recent storms have made our computers a little wacked. Hannah's computer decided not to communicate with our house 'net, and this one seems to have randomly scrammed the settings that let me go places like...Blogger, for instance. This morning I finally decided to sit down and figure out the issues, and now I'm back in business.

I've been wrestling recently - with God, Biblical truth, the real meaning of things written centuries ago in a language I don't understand by a person from a culture far different than mine, and if it wouldn't be expedient just to say 'chuck it all, I'll just remain dumb and happy'. Then I think that I've never been happy dumb, and the wrestling continues.

I'm limping severely already. I'm trying not to let go until I get that blessing, but can I hold on? (see Gen 32)

Wrestling is hard, it hurts, and you don't always know what the outcome will be. Sometimes the blessing has been given, and you don't realize it.

But hold on. If you need to take a break, I'll go in for you.

Thank you so much for your kind understanding and clear support, Vicki. Sometimes people want to jump in and say "What's the problem - tell me and I'll set it straight for you" when that is exactly the wrong approach.

'I hear you, been there, got your back'. you made my day - and my struggle a touch easier.
