Hi everyone, I received this from an email today. Even though most forwarded email doesn't fit within our goals and purposes of this loop, I felt as though this one does, and would be worthy of being forever in our "archives". We should always pray for our husbands, because God is not finished with them yet! They are still in the molding stage, just as we, ourselves, are! -
P.S. I would give credit but I don't know who the author is.
