You Might be a Preacher's Kid if....

....all of your major bodily injuries occur at church!! (Last time it was stitches!)

My oldest son was playing a fun game of football between the Wednesday night meal and youth group.  It looks as though he may have torn his ACL.  We are fervently praying this is not the case.  We will know more in 2 weeks after rehab.  PLEASE keep BTP in your prayers.  For those of you that know my son, crutches and a brace are just not his speed.  He is keeping a good attitude about it all.  His youth pastor started a series recently about the Fruit of the Spirit.  BTP shared with me yesterday that he learned Wednesday night during the study that you should have JOY even when things are not going well.  We are all going to try and keep that spirit of JOY! 

One of my favorites from college:

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, when ever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.  Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."   James 1:2-4
