I totally sympathize with American Girl as she laments the horrors of having blood drawn. I also appreciate her reflections on this pain in her post about the Vampire woman and suffering. I'm going to have to check out the book she mentions there.
By the way, American Girl, I'm currently reading Walter Marshall's The Gospel Mystery of Sanctification, which was published by Reformation Heritage Books and the introduction is by Dr. Joel R. Beeke. Sound familiar? For everyone else out there, Dr. Beeke performed AG's wedding in September! I think of her whenever I pick up this book.
