Editor’s Note: Local pastors partner with us to bring a message of hope and comfort to readers twice a week. Look for it on Sundays and Wednesdays. A phone call from my daughter! She calls almost every evening, and it is often the highlight of my day. She always begins at the beginning of her day and tells me everything. You might think I’d get bored, hearing about what she had for breakfast and what they talked about during the class lecture, but the truth is that I love every minute of it. The sound of her voice and her enthusiasm for her studies, her amusement and joy in campus activities, even her minor irritations in the day tell me of her life.
