Well, I can echo Aaron's thoughts today. It has been a lousy week. I have had a myriad of emotions. But, with all that said, I am so excited about the birthday party Pam has planned for me tonight. I am thrilled about an evening with my nearest and dearest, with fun conversations, good food, and presents!!! I will consider this evening a reprieve. I believe it is these refreshing times that strengthen us to go back into the fray of battle. Thank you Jesus for reprieves!!
