Everyone has some hardship. One of the biggest hardships that Pip and I endure is living away from each other. I am going to college in New Mexico, and Pip has to live in Wisconsin.
We still have hope though. Because in James 1:12 God tells us "Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him." And that is great inspiration to persevere through any hardship.
