First things first…to “anonymous”: yep, I’m reading it. Just started this morning (my second time throught it).
Second, I was reading back over some things, and I stumbled across this from one of our postings on the parent webpage while in Mexico. It felt fitting to re-post.
“This week, our devotions centered on people in Scripture who underwent struggles, temptations and trials. Jesus, Job, David, Daniel, Shadrach, Meschach and Abednego. It was no accident. It was what our group needed to through and with, and I hope and pray that they will see that while growth comes through happy times, and joyous interactions with one another, it also comes through times of challenge and hardship. On this trip we have experienced both happiness and hardship.”
