Hidden Wisdom, Volume 63

As has happened many times before, God gave us a practical lesson on the theme of this issue of HW while we were in the process of putting it together! Our computer unexpectedly developed a number of problems, making it impossible for us to finish the issue on schedule. However, in His own perfect timing our prayers were answered and He gave the wisdom needed. His ways are indeed far above our own!

May we all grow in faith as we look to 2005, knowing that He doeth all things well!
