Confess! You read the title of today’s post in the voice of Arnold Schwarzenegger from the movie The Terminator, didn’t you? In your mind, you saw the cyborg, complete with dark sunglasses and rock-hard jaw mouth the words without any emotion.

Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stall: Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will …
I have been sick, very sick. I’ve just come through a bout of pneumonia and during a coughing episode I pulled a muscle in my back so severely that I landed in the emergency room and have endured ten days of the worst pain I’ve ever had in my life. A lot of good people have been praying for …
