Short shrift and hurried. We have some BIG thunderstorms headed our way, nearly on top of us now, and I fear our power and connectivity may be affected. Certainly we will be proactive and unplug TV, computers, Wi-Fi routers, cable boxes, etc. Likely to be a day to catch up on sleep or something, if the crash of thunder and panicky cats allows it.
The Old Testament passage is Psalms 88 and 89
The New Testament passage is Romans chapter 10. Very important, and I just don't have time to comment. (as I see lightning flashes and the crash of VERY near thunder).
