“If this is God’s provision for us, that means He has called me to contend with roaches again. As I contemplate what that will be like, it helps to think about how the Author and Finisher of my faith lived. He chose to be born in a period and a country where dealing with vermin was a way of life. Before the time of modern medicine, Jesus accepted that roaches would run over his food – having the knowledge of God, I imagine He also knew when it happened, and exactly what germs and diseases those roaches carried. “
Happy New Year, and may 2008 be roach and vermin-free for all my readers!
BTW, Raleigh, NC really does drop a nut for New Years. (An acorn, you Pervs!)
