3 gifts of persistence:
- after much back and forth trying to come up with a mutually agreeable date, a wonderful dinner with a long-time friend.
- hope found in persistent prayer. Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Matthew 7:7-8
- the finish line on physical therapy.
