Usually my 'Quoteworthy' moments are famous--often dead--people that I have never met. In many cases, that is great, since meeting dead people is not on my list of things to do in this life.
However, every once in awhile, someone I actually know personally says something really great, profound, and/or noteworthy. I received one of those today from my ever-increasingly-profound-and-wise uncle. (It was actually his son who I referred to in yesterday's post.)
In a note from him, I received this gem:
Funny--the water never parts in the desert, just at the promise line.
That'll make you think, and then go, "Yeah. I agree; that's true." And later, the nice twist in the wording will hit you, and you'll appreciate it even more. At least that's what happened to me.
Hope it blesses,
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. --Romans 5:1-6
