Volume 46
When I'm working on HW, it often seems that the Lord gives me special tests regarding the topics addressed in that issue. This issue was no exception! As I have waited several weeks for a particular item to come in for publication, and it has been a true test of my patience. :-) I certainly have a long way to go in this area, but I am ever more grateful for the Lord's patience with me! I am sure you will learn just as much as I did from the encouraging articles in this issue.

"Every Good Gift..." -- A father's testimony of learning patience

Four poems on Patience:
     Teach Me, Dear Father

I also found several excellent articles on other websites that I thought you would be blessed by. Please keep in mind that I do not necessary agree with every point made in every article listed here (much less agree with other articles that are included on each of these websites!), but I have included each of these articles because they are thought-provoking and they motivated me to check out the Scriptures for my own. I pray you'll be motivated to do the same! (These will open in a new browser window for your convenience.)
