|I find bananas quite appealing!|
|Mom, what are we having to eat? Are we going to "Dumpsters" again?|
|I do my best work under the cover of darkness!|
|Bedtime stories are a test of Endurance for Mom!|
"jills". The babies are called "joeys", just like their Australian relatives. A group of opossums are known as a "passel". Opossums may "hiss" when initially threatened, however, they are very passive by nature & rarely aggressive.
|I love climbing & enjoy "branching out" every chance I get!|
|Don't Ewe say a word! I forgot to shave this morning!|
|I returned to the God of my youth & met my bride, Ann|
Adoniram & Ann Judson were married on Feb.5, 1812, & within 2 weeks, the happy couple were off to India as America's first foreign missionaries. They believed that God had called them to preach the Gospel in a spiritually dark land. This marked the beginning of their missionary adventure, which would send them to Burma & require tremendous Endurance over the next 37 years of ministry. Webster defines Endurance as:" the ability to last, continue, or remain". The Judson's certainly had this "staying power!"
|The king outlawed Christianity in Burma & Ewe could lose ewer head !|
|Prison was a test of Endurance!|
No place I see, but to fulfill
in life and death Thy lovey will
No succor in my woes I want
Except what Thou art pleased to grant.
Our days are numbered-let us spare
Our anxious hearts a needless care;
'Tis Thine to number out our days,
ours to give them to Thy praise
|Ann encouraged Adoniram in prison during her visits.|
Sheep lack the endurance that the Judson's had built into their character. If a sheep is accidently cast down, there is no way it will endure, without the Shepherd coming to its aid, & turning it right-side up.
|"Why art thou cast down Oh my soul". This is "Baaa...D"!|
When Ewe see the Endurance displayed by the Judson's, & by our Good Shepherd while He was in the Garden, we can take comfort. He is able to take Ewe through whatever this day unveils!
