Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.

Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

~James 1:2-4~

I will be thankful for the day when I can say I do not have a single friend dealing with Covid-19.  I think we all will.




Let’s continue to pray for the students and staff at schools or at home.
