"Though the fig tree does not bud
and there is no fruit
on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep
in the pen
and no cattle in the stalls,
yet I will triumph
in the Lord;
I will rejoice in the God
of my salvation!
Yahweh my lord
is my strength;
He makes my feet like those
of a deer
and enables me to walk
on mountain heights."
Habakkuk 3:18-19

Though the economy should not rebound or 
healthcare be revamped,
though there is only bread, milk and cereal in the house and not
much extra cash in the bank account,
though the kids have left the nest and are spreading their wings,
though chronic pain or serious illness be my daily cross,
or a loved one taken before I was ready,
or my spouse watches sports all weekend;

will I choose to rejoice, will I acknowledge God is my strength?
Will I triumph because Yahweh is my Lord?

Just so you all know. As Jody's husband, I do NOT watch sports all weekend. In fact I watch very few sports. She is obviously speaking about YOUR husband! :) -Rob Gates
