Today's church service was quite moving. In particular, this first verse from Psalm 40, which got me thinking about my new friend Puck in the Netherlands, the victims of the mudslides in California, the Tsunami in South East Asia, and all others in search of hope for a better tomorrow.
"I waited patiently upon the Lord;
he stooped to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the desolate pit, out of the mire and clay;
he set my feet upon a high cliff and made my footing sure."
