Thank you for teaching Galen wisdom now while he is young. He’s learning so much. I pray that he continues to learn how to navigate life and continues to believe what you say to him. I pray he is able to become an expert in conflict resolution, for his fear of man to be completely eradicated. Thank you for him Lord. Thank you that Robert woke up early and also got to chat with him for a bit. Strengthen their relationship. Let Robert see you through us Jesus.
