Be strong... press on...
you're not alone.
we can take courage
and look at those times of
as only passages.
There are many wonderful things
that will never be done
if you do not do them.
Charles D. Gill
A bird does not sing
because it has an answer;
it sings because it has a song.
In the past, whenever I had fallen short
in almost any undertaking,
it was seldom because I had tried and failed.
It was because I had let fear of failure
stop me from trying at all.
and mighty forces will come to your aid.
"Those who dare to fail miserably
can achieve greatly."
~John Fitzgerald Kennedy
The caterpillar’s metamorphosis
from a tree clinging, 12-legged pest...
into the majestic flying butterfly
is a frequent metaphor for total transformations.
Every day we become
incrementally closer to our expected end
for our life.
Trust God for the results.
When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left,
and could say,
"I used everything you gave me".
May we refuse to die full.
Understanding our potential and purpose requires
patience, determination, and daily achievement.
of allowing the unfolding of the individuals--
we were created to be.
Help us to realize,
we each have the right to be
who You created us to be.
