Thanks always, Jim
Benghazi. I will always remember the travesty, both the immediate and the long term (more later).
The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is now. Chinese Proverb
Terri Schiavo responding to command to open her eyes -- by opening them very wide
In sorrow and mourning:
O LORD, do not rebuke me [us] in Your anger
or discipline me [us] in Your wrath.
Be merciful to me [us], LORD, for I am [we are] faint;
O LORD, heal me [us], for my [our] bones are in agony.
My soul is [Our souls are] in anguish.
How long, O LORD, how long?
Turn, O LORD, and deliver me [us];
save me [US!!] because of Your unfailing love.
No one remembers You when he is dead.
Who praises You from the grave?(!)
I am [We are] worn out from groaning;
all night long I flood my bed [we flood our beds] with weeping
and drench my couch [our couches] with tears.
My [Our] eyes grow weak with sorrow;
they fail because of all my [our] foes.
Away from me [us], all you who do evil
for the LORD has heard my [our] weeping.
The LORD has heard my [our] cry for mercy;
the LORD accepts my [our] prayer.
All my [our] enemies will be ashamed and dismayed;
they will turn back in sudden disgrace.
