Bittersweet

Today has been a good and a bad day. It was good because today I had the opportunity to tell a 14 year old boy about Jesus and he accepted Him as his Savior. Praise the Lord!

Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth. Luke 15:10
Today was also good because the steps in my house are finally getting finished.

Today wasn't so good in the fact that a friend of mine found out that her brother passed away today. It was very unexpected. When she first heard about it she didn't know what to do but she is starting to do better now. I've talked to her and really just listened because that's all you can do is lend an open ear and heart.
...the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. Job 1:21

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your friend's brother. Praise God for His comfort.

How wonderful that you were used to minister to that precious teenager!
