~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

"Absence is to love what wind is to fire; it extinguishes the small, it enkindles the great." - Comte de Bussy-Robutin

When Corrie ten Boom and her sister Betsie arrived at the dreaded concentration camp for women at Ravensbruck, it seemed that they had entered the cruelest place on earth. The Nazis had incarcerated these Dutch ladies for aiding Jews in Haarlem.

Sitting outside in the sleet and rain, lying in lice- infested beds, stripped naked before leering male guards, these two ladies of faith would quietly sing and praise the Lord. One of their favorite gospel songs was "Lead, kindly light, amid the encircling gloom .... I do not ask to see the distant scene, One step's enough for me."

Eventually Betsie quietly joined the more than 95,000 women who died at Ravensbruck, but Corrie was miraculously released to go and witness around the world.

--- Lord, with the help of Your Spirit I sing a song of praise in the midst of the chaos and calamities of life, knowing that the battle is in Your hands.

A Colorado hunting guide got himself and his party hopelessly lost in the mountains. They blamed him for leading them astray. "You told us you were the best guide in Colorado!" one of the hunters asserted.

"I am," he said with without hesitation, "but I think we're in Wyoming now."
