This red building is the library in downtown Chicago. The cream colored building to the right is where my daughter lived for her first year. The tan building that you can hardly see a federal prison! Yes, and you can see the prisoners in the morning on the roof getting their outdoor time. You think I'm kidding? No, the truth is always harder to believe than made up stories! If I had known that there was a prison next to my daughter's  apartment, Wow, things would have been different, but we didn't know until most of the year was over.

Now this prison certainly doesn't look inviting! The windows are just slants, and everyone who comes in wants to get out! I have felt like that at times. I've said to myself, "How did I get into this mess?"I can't find my way out! It is only when I look to the Lord that He starts to unravel the knots that I have put myself in. Because He is gentle, and lovely, He doesn't try to do HIs work in me all at once. A little here, a little there, each day He tells me "I am His own.   "Many waters cannot quench love, nor can rivers drown it. If a man tried to buy love with all his wealth his offer would be utterly scorned." {Song of Solomon 8:7} God's amazing love for us will never fail or faint. Tell Him you are so glad for that today!
