I sometimes feel like I fail in defending my faith when I lack courage to speak up more often. My husband is a firm (and gentle) defender of the faith.
I am very timid about speaking up, Patty. Which may be this quote strikes me - it challenges me! A firm and gentle defender of the faith... what a blessing your husband must be to many! It seem he has the perfect combination.
I agree about your characterization of your husband - firm and gentle defender of the faith. How I long for this to be true of me!
I'm saying a prayer for all of us!
