Its 12.31am Saturday night.
And I'm up and blogging because its too hot to sleep - in mid-July.
It feels all wrong but hey! I'm wide awake, it seems Blogger is ready to play so why not?
DH brought this story back from a memorial service he attended last week.
The pastor leading the service was a good friend of the deceased, and was clearly emotional about the loss of his friend.
He told the congregation that the last understandable words his friend had uttered were these:
"In my abundance of lack, I have abundance of joy"
I don't know about you, but that stops me in my tracks.
This was a man in his early 40's, who loved life and lived it to the full, leaving a wife and 3 young children - and in deep pain.
And yet, in those hours, that was what he was experiencing.
God can do even that.
