My wonderful friend from Phoenix came to visit me this week and she arrived with a special present. I had asked her to design some cards with bible verses on them so that I could frame them. They were all so amazing. Thank you Di, I ♥ you!! Here is one of my favorite verses that she included in the bunch:

“More then that, we rejoice in our sufferings,
knowing that suffering produces character,
and character produces hope,
and hope does not put us to shame,
because God’s love has been poured into our hearts
through the Holy Spirit
who has been given to us.”

Romans 5:3-5.
