Every year we kick off the season with a choir picnic. Normally graciously hosted by Don and Jessie Adams, this year – because Don had knee surgery – it was hosted by Angela and Steve Wright. Think of these picnics as a family reunion after a summer away; serial bonding.
This year’s had a twist: The day before the picnic Steve and Angela’s daughter, Kaylei, was admitted to the hospital with a staff infection. When asked why she’d continue to host the picnic under those circumstances, Angela, in paraphrase, said this:
“What better way to endure struggle than with family?”
Oh, and: Kaylei is fully recovered. And so is Don.
Thanks be to God.
