In this you rejoice, even if now for a little while you have had to suffer various trials, so that the genuineness of your faith . . . may be found to result in praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
-1 Peter 1:6-7
I would just like to share that Mark is on vacation this week...I am enjoying being "just the four of us" for now, and will return on Monday. Until then, know that I'm thinking of each of you, and thanking my God for being so gracious to me...
