will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

real quick, before i clean.

i am going to try to get some cleaning done tonight. as i said to landon before he left for the movies, "we're living in squalor."

it's not an exaggeration.

anyway.. i wanted to get this story posted quick before i forgot.

i emailed david a couple days ago, asking him to tell me a verse to pray for a particular situtation i'm going through. he wrote back a wonderful email, and on friday afternoon, i was recounting it to landon.

"he was talking about how in second corinthians, king jehosaphat was confronted with some pretty serious problems, and he didn't know what to do. basically, he just said, 'God, i don't know what to do. so i'm not going to do anything until You tell me.'"

i'm just blabbing along for another five minutes while landon listens, sorta nodding.

finally, i stop. and say, "so, what do you think?"

he says one thing:

"well, jehosaphat's not in second corinthians, i can tell you that much..."
