Joy Through the Storm: Morning Musings
by L. Joy Douglas
I have never been a morning person. As a child, I was always sluggish upon waking and during my teen years, I suffered from sleep apnea which deprived me of oxygen throughout the night. The end result was constant exhaustion, and as my parents remember all too well, a terrible attitude in the mornings! I was like a thundercloud and readily told people they would be safer if they didn’t speak to me until at least 10am. I completely related to the passage in Proverbs 27:14 that said, “If anyone loudly blesses their neighbor early in the morning, it will be taken as a curse.”
OffBeat Brooksie: In One and Out the Other
by Brooksie Cox
Most of you probably know what a science geek I am. As for my mother, she is somewhat superstitious. Yes, she is a Christian, but she has always had her pet superstitions. For example, she wouldn’t let me come in through a door if I had gone out through the other one. She said it was bad luck, so I had to go back out the door and walk around the house to the other one. I’m not joking. This actually happened. And I still remember fussing as I walked around the house.

There is much about the book of Habakkuk that I do not understand. What I do understand, is the prophet saw great destruction ahead but put His faith in an even greater God. This book could have been written by a godly prophet or preacher in modern day America. It's message is preached as shepherd's pour their hearts into their congregations, warning their flocks doom is on the way.
