A quick google search leads me to a brief background of one of christianity's greatest hymns penned by Thomas Chisolm: Great is Thy Faithfulness lyrics are based on a text by Jeremiah, "... My soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. '" (Lamentations 3:19-24).
Isn't Jeremiah the weepy guy? I vaguely remember that. Well, I'm not the crying type but I know my issues and this hymn just makes me feel like everything's going to be all right. I love the optimism on "bright hope for tomorrow."

1. My five year -old has discovered a new toy: the kitchen knife. And he loves to hold it while jumping up and down a chair. He is also ready to fight it out if I took it away from him. Only an hour ago I had to slice veggies in the bathroom so he couldn't see the knife and start playing with it again.
2. He drew dinosaurs on the margins of my conference paper, turtles on my reference books and crocs on important receipts. His sketch pad lies empty.
3. Bathtime? No. Toothbrush? No.
4. He experimented with the TV and DVD player remotes. Read: dismantled, destroyed.
5. Because of the now useless TV and DVD player, he has to use the computer for his viewing pleasure and does it only when it's my turn at the gadget.
6. He explored knot-tying on where else but my stuff. Yesterday I almost ended up at work with my bathrobe belt tied to the strap of my purse.
