O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusts in him. (Psalms 34:8 KJV)
With tears in his eyes, Patrick related how all of his hopes in life had been disappointed. Divorce tore his world apart; his company downsized, sending Patrick to the unemployment line. His degree is nearly worthless these days. Now he was at the homeless shelter.
