"Remember what you said to me, your servant - I hang onto these words for dear life! These words hold me up in bad times; yes, your promises rejuvenate me."
Last summer, I looked outside, and something had opened up the suet feeder, gotten inside, and taken the suet! A few days later, something had taken the whole thing off the hook and dragged it along the ground, again stealing the suet. My friend suggested a raccoon, because they are good with their little hands. But in nearly thirty years, we have never seen one around here. I bought a new suet feeder that can't be unlatched. Then yesterday, I believe I spotted the culprit. Not able to open or remove it anymore, all he could do was try his best and hang on. Well, anyone who goes to that much trouble deserves a little reward! And after all, it's a tough world out there, we are all just hanging on.
"Never again will death have the last word. When Jesus died, he took sin down with him, but alive he brings God down to us...God speaks your mother tongue and you hang on every word. You are dead to sin and alive to God. That's what Jesus did."
