And now for something completely different...

I just wanted to take a moment and proclaim the Lord's graciousness to me with Greek over the last few weeks.

I have really been struggling, because I don't seem to have enough time to devote to it. Yet, I am so encouraged when I go and hear Dr. Zemek's encouragement and reminders that the point of this is to know God's word more deeply; that has truly been an encouragement.

I had my first test, and God's hand was certainly upon me, because I did much better than I deserved; moreover, I am actually starting to understand sentences (at least, the Greek equivalent of "see Spot run").

I loathe my laziness earlier in life, when I had the time to do this, and chose not to, but I hope and pray that God will make me strong in my weakness.

So, for Friday I say, praise God, and pray for me.

Oh, man, you're singing the song that Buggy and I both sing.

I'm happy for you that things are going well. I will pray for you.

Thanks for defending my honor over at Carla's. That was very kind.

Good point. One of my biggest regrets is the wasted time in my early years. Keep on plugging...

Congratulations on the progress, Matt.

I think you likely speak for a lot of us Gummby. My husband and I have had conversations like this more times than I can count.

Matt, keep up the good work! It is wonderful that you get to learn from Dr. Zemek!
