Ecclesiastes 7:14

This verse resonated with me during the service this weekend:

"When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad consider: God has made the one as well as the other."

Often times it is how I react to the bad times that will be a testament to my walk with Christ. (My reaction isn't always that great by the way!)

Happy Monday!

Timely advice for those of us dwelling in the Clem Domicile. Thanks for the reminder.

Happy Monday to you, too--or Tuesday, as it will likely be when you see this:)

Funny how it's those bad times that send us running back to Him, isn't it? Well, not funny - hah, hah, but you know what I mean.

Just checking in, hoping you're settling in well here in the Land of A Thousand Temperatures!

I thought of you all last week when it was in the 70's. We went to the zoo and just enjoyed being outdoors. There was still ice in some of the shady spots, so it was a little strange, but the animals were out and very active!

Take care!

Hey Robin,
I don't have your email anymore so I am writing you via the blog. Skip and I watched Terry's video promoting his book and it was awesome. Skip said, "Wow, Terry's hair has grown." We both think it's pretty cool. Skip has had the same hair style since I met him in 84' (Simon Lebon style) even though he would love to have it long. Hope everything is going well. I miss your posts): God bless!

Hi Robin,
Hope everything is going well. I was just thinking about you today, and I prayed that all was well with you. Is it?
