1. Arise my tenderest thoughts, arise;To torrents melt my streaming eyes.
Is this about sin? Go to 2.

It’s fun to write about providence when things are good. I have, on more than one occasion waxed eloquent on the subject on this blog. It is a different story however, when a predestined storm blows through and shows no sign of stopping. It would also be nice to report that through it all a general atmosphere of expectation and bemusement has reigned. But since honesty is a command I must confess that the current series of storms has played merry hell with my depression and stress has been a frequent companion. Naturally I would prefer a sooner resolution rather than a later one. All that said I can report so far that God is very good. While things have been bad he has been generous through his people. Where I would prefer to resolution his grace has abounded in stretching my patience. Where I want revenge he has presented justice. Where I want a proper sulk, he has given laughter.
C. M. Haire, General Editor has been working in ministry proper for over 20 years. If you push him he’ll tell you since age 13 and is now 35 so you can do the math. He currently serves as a children’s minister in Memphis, TN. Which is Adrian Rogers country where it is still understood that you can’t be a Calvinist, or a smoker and be in ministry. To add that he also enjoys a regular dram would put his job and salvation into question. Nonetheless he is pleased to edit and contribute here.
T. L. Sterly is, she writes, she enjoys being mean to the general editor. Her name is withheld for no good reason but out of a deep devotion to Lemony Snickett. Also she is married and has one very fat cat. She is writing here under duress.
