In my distress I called upon the LORD; to my God I cried for help. From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry to him reached his ears. (Psalms 18:6 NRSV)
We are all familiar with MURPHY'S LAW, "If anything can go wrong it will." Murphy's Law is the inspiration for a book by Paul Dickson, titled THE OFFICIAL RULES AT HOME. Here is a sample.

Rule of the Bedroom: The spouse who snores louder always falls asleep first.

Gardening Discovery: When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.

Package Dilemma: The heavier the package and the farther you must carry it, the more your nose itches.

Rule of Bar Code Malfunction: The bar code in the checkout line won't work on items you're embarrassed to be buying.

Lost and Found Rule: The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement. Some people say Murphy was an optimist. It is amazing how wrong things can go sometimes.

Bad and sometimes tragic things happen even to Christians. These are moments when we learn to rely more on God and less on ourselves.


Dear God, in my moments of tragedy, may I learn to make you more a part of my life in all of my moments. Amen.
