Sandra’s note: Susan Etole sees deeper than many I know. She’s uncapped her pen today to share just a few words with us about the power of scripture when we’re facing dragons.
I’m apprehensive going into this procedure. Scared spitless would be a more truthful description but somehow it doesn’t seem appropriate to admit that. Apprehension seems acceptable, fear doesn’t.
He knew me before I was formed; He knows my rising up and my sitting down; wherever I am, He is; He knows my anxious thoughts; He is with me.
Morning dawns, and as my son enters the room I greet him with the words, “Let’s go slay some dragons,” and he responds with “Be strong and courageous for I am with you.”
Together we head out into the freezing autumn air and stroll the 8 blocks to the Gonda Building.
All will be well.
