Amen, brother, I was delighted to hear from you today. I know the Lord is
using you wherever you are. I have missed you, Jim.
The Son is ours, the Spirit is ours, the Father is ours, and the word is
ours. ALL THIS AND HEAVEN, TOO.
Last eve I passed beside a blacksmith's door
And heard the anvil ring the vesper chime:
Then looking in, I saw upon the floor
Old hammers, worn with beating years of time.
"How many anvils have you had," said I,
"To wear and batter all these hammers so?"
"Just one," said he, and then, with twinkling eye,
"The anvil wears the hammers out, you know."
And so, thought I, the anvil of God's word,
For ages skeptic blows have beat upon;
Yet though the noise of falling blows was heard,
The anvil is unharmed . . . the hammer's gone.
