finally approaching a well-watered place

Bless our God, oh peoples!
Give him a thunderous welcome!
Didn’t he set us on the road to life?
Didn’t he keep us out of the ditch?
He trained us first,
passed us like silver through refining fires,
Brought us into hardscrabble country,
pushed us to our very limit,
Road-tested us inside and out,
took us to hell and back;
Finally he brought us
to this well-watered place.

Psalm 66, The Message

I can almost breathe more freely after that passage. Thank you for posting this.

No prob, Amy. I can finally see it in the distance- I'm getting closer, how about you?

I think I am. And I'm glad that I can at least say that for today!
