Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage.

Boys' group

Last night was the boys' bible study again. I have to say, we were a little concerned beforehand. During the couple of weeks leading up to our visit to Alabama, the boys had been getting more and more rowdy. I had a feeling it was due to going outside to play football before the study started and they weren't able to settle down after that. So, we did not allow them to go out last night until after the study. They were disappointed and tried to talk Karl into allowing it, but we stuck to our guns. We actually talked with them for a few minutes and once they got started things went much better. Several of the boys responded to the questions, they were reading passages of scripture, and they were listening to one another and the leader. It was a relief....but even more it was such a blessing to see them do what we knew they could. I am thankful for each boy and the commitment that they each have made, along with their parents who drive them, to be here every week. We are prayerful about next week and are looking forward to having them in our home again.
