And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
Ian is off in Texas spending the weekend with his best buds in the world, Ben and Dan (no coincidence that our son is Benjamin Daniel) and Ryan. I’m “single parenting,” but really it just means I begged for extra help from absurdly willing grandparents. Many thanks to all grandparents for their extra help this week/weekend. The only tough part is getting up every night with Benji, when normally we split night duty.
