2 Peter 1:5-8
Make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness; knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.
We are rejoicing today that my father finally has come home...he did fall today as I was placing him in the car but! although he is bang up he did not break anything. I continue to pray that the Lord would not only give him strength but confidence..which he is lacking right now. He has come so very far these past six weeks. Tom and I are continuing to work hard on our marriage; our home-life and ourselves. I did not get any of the jobs after many series of first, second, third and even fourth interviews. I now know it is because of us having to close the business~ but I know that the Lord has something for Tom and I and He continues to provide. So I am taking a breath and holding on for what the Lord has in store for our family. I believe that He has not forsaken us~ Nor has he left us.
