when worse comes to worse...

I wasnt it a hot mood tonight...and really the only thing to do in such a situation is turn to the Psalms....

Psalm 124

A song of ascents. Of David.
   1 If the LORD had not been on our side-
    let Israel say-
    2 if the LORD had not been on our side
    when men attacked us,
    3 when their anger flared against us,
    they would have swallowed us alive;
    4 the flood would have engulfed us,
    the torrent would have swept over us,
    5 the raging waters
    would have swept us away.

    6 Praise be to the LORD ,
    who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
    7 We have escaped like a bird
    out of the fowler's snare;
    the snare has been broken,
    And we have escaped.
    8 Our help is in the name of the LORD ,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.
