Praying the Scriptures for your Children: Wisdom and Discernment

Sorry for the delay.... a lot has been going on in the McPherson household the past few weeks. Through it all I am growing in thankfulness to my Savior who has been our portion, rock, comfort, peace, joy.... all that we've needed.

It is so good to know The source of life-giving joy. In a season of life with MANY unknowns Christ remains the Master Comforter and Provider. His grace is surely sufficient. Now that is reassurance to press on!
