“The wagon train traveling west created a safe home for me as a runaway slave,” Harriet explained. She showed Susanna where she had hidden her signature on the log cabin design. “Not my best work, but the challenge of creating something useful from scraps on the jolting ride gave me hope. The trunk must have gotten mixed up in the chaos as our wagons chose different trails.”
“Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.
Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees;
And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.”
—Hebrews 12:11-13 KJV
