I've been thinking about Belize, and my heart hurts because I miss Rianna, Tanish, their family, and the Belizean people. My friend Courtney shared me this little bit of encouragement a couple weeks ago, and it came to me today:

"The Lord created medicines out of the earth,
and the sensible will not despise them.
Was not water made sweet with a tree
in order that its power might be known?
And he gave skill to human beings
that he might be glorified in his marvelous works.
By them the physician heals and takes away pain;
the pharmacist makes a mixture from them.
God's works will never be finished;
and from him health spreads over all the earth."

- Sirach 38:4-8


  1. Oh my, Ben Sirach! Look at you and your 2nd Temple Judaism Extra-Biblical texts!
