Thank you for this word of encouragement. My wife and I have been empty-nesters for quite some time. Our daily family worship used to consist of singing a hymn from the Scottish Psalter, reading a paragraph from the 1689 London Baptist Confession, reciting a few portions of Spurgeon’s A Puritan Catechism and then reading the Family portions from M’Cheyne’s Bible Reading Schedule; and encouraging all to read the Secret portions in the morning. There were some days when I felt exactly like that— “This is God’s eternal truth!” and yet we’re sometimes tired, unenthused, etc. The Family Worship Companion is a wonderful supplement for us now— a refreshment, indeed, for our souls. Again, I appreciate your labor of love, pastor. Our hearts and prayers are with you and your continued service to our precious Lord Jesus.
