One of those weeks that the Holy Spirit's perseverance was called upon. For the third week straight I had to cancel Dixon's Renewing Fatherhood class, Some students in Sheridan's evening class were not being respectful of their fellow students by carrying on conversations.

It was frustrating but when I read all that Paul went through, my week was a walk in the park on a bright sunny day.

To Him be the glory.
