There is a Fountain - William Cowper
Was reading about the hymn writer, William Cowper (1731-1800) and how one story told of him hailing a horse-driven cab and asked to be taken to the Thames River, but the city of London was blanketed with such a thick fog that the driver lost his way. At last, Cowper leaped impatiently from the buggy determined to find his own way to his watery grave. He had discovered he landed back at his own doorstep. Thanking the Lord that He sent the fog over London, which prevented him from committing suicide. Reading about Cowper's life reminded me that God loves Everyone ... and sent His Son for even me.
