When we truly believe that our Redeemer lives, as did Job, we can endure whatever life sets before us. Happiness is transitory and often self indulgent; very few of life’s lessons come out happiness. Our growth comes out of the travel through the valley of the shadow. My brother Greg is gaining emotional and spiritual strength, but his body is still in the shadow as he waits in the hospital. Thank you for your continued prayers that he will know God is lovingly present, walking with him through this time.
