Right now in my devotions I've been reading throught the minor prophets. This morning I read Habakkuk and it was very encouraging. It seems like there are a lot of things in my life right now that are "in the works". In fact all of life is in various stages, and I'm not good at being patient. I always want to get there, or be done, or see the end. So theses verses were just what I needed.
Habakkuk says, "I will climb up into my watchtower now and wait to see what the Lord will
say to me and how he will answer." (2:1)
The Lord replies, " Write my answer in large, clear letters on a tablet so that a runner can

Slowly, steadily, surely the time approaches when the vision will be fullfilled. If it seems
slow wait patiently for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed." (2:3)

It's a lesson I'm learning, and a lesson that I think I continue to learn.

Silly me, I signed up to participate in medical research. It sounded good, I was going to be paid to let them test my blood, do a few brain scans and answer some questions. Plus I was going to get to go on an all expenses paid trip to Pittsburg, where the reserch was taking place. So on Thursday I took off to Pittsuburg, anticipating a nice motel, with time to relax and catch up on reading. Things did not go as planned. Flights were late and so I arrived late. As soon as I got there I was rushed off for an MRI and other tests. I also found out that I would be sleeping in their sleep research lab. Talk about depressing. The room was a concrete box with a white bed, with white sterile sheets and a pillow covered in pla…
