The greatest want of the world is the want of men—men who will not be bought or sold, men who in their inmost souls are true and honest, men who do not fear to call sin by its right name, men whose conscience is as true to duty as the needle to the pole, men who will stand for the right though the heavens fall.Education, 57
My son’s name is Joshua. I think he’s pretty brave! I like these — are you going to cover the entire alphabet — which would be the entire month (essentially)?
Yes. It’s the best way to keep my brain organized and not be so random. Then I’ll have to do a few more to complete it out.
Perfect word for letter B. Sometimes it’s hard for young people to be brave but knowing that God is leading us will help get through the fear.
Yes I agree. So much pressure.
I must have missed the context somewhere. Is this an alphabetical progression?
Yes. I can’t remember if I posted yesterday’s. I think I was on the road and did not share it with the group.
