Psalm 3

1 O LORD, how many are my foes!
How many rise up against me!
2 Many are saying of me,

"God will not deliver him."
3 But you are a shield around me, O LORD;

you bestow glory on me and lift up my head.
4 To the LORD I cry aloud,

and he answers me from his holy hill.
5 I lie down and sleep;

I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.
6 I will not fear the tens of thousands

drawn up against me on every side.
7 Arise, O LORD!

Deliver me, O my God!
Strike all my enemies on the jaw;
break the teeth of the wicked.
8 From the LORD comes deliverance.

May your blessing be on your people.

I got some disturbing news yesterday from my doctor. They'll retest me in October. God will take care of it by then I'm sure. Until then, this is my prayer.

Inflation is out of control!!!

So my house payment goes up every June (except that one year it actually went down but still, in June) and they always tell me in my May statement what it's going to be. Well, I got my May statement today. And you guessed it, it went up again.

Me: Honey, the house payment's going up.

Him: Great.

Me: Yeah, I'm going to need to put some extra money in the bank from now on.

Him: How much.

Me: Well, I don't care if you do it all at one time or a little bit with each check.

Him: How much more a month do you need.

Me: 43 cents a month.
