Persevere. I'd heard that word before when I was treating our goat Emily's eye after it had been injured by another goat's horn. I was nervous about whether what I was doing was going to work and I heard: Persevere.
I heard that word again recently when we were plowing with our workhorse and everything seemed to be going wrong. Persevere.
We had to persevere through some very difficult things this last winter. Some things are over and others are not. Did they work out well? Not always. Is it worth it to keep going? Yes.
Ephesians 6:13 " ...... and having done all, to stand."
