“Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.”
When you looked in the mirror today, what did you see? Did you see someone that can make a difference in this world? You are someone that can not only survive, but you can thrive and be a source of strength for others.
And always remember…..you are never alone. Not ever.
It amazes me how we can walk through the fire looking back at how we used to be strong, or how we hold onto the one we love, and that love can push us forward beyond what we ever imagined……
we not only survive but we build new foundations, because the old framework was never meant to sustain us.
As you may know my wife has had cancer for many years, off and on. She will be on chemo for a very long time. You may not know that she recently had some small tumors show up where they are not supposed to be! So to be truthful it is easy to go down the bitterness road or the fear road, but we decided to go down the trust road. Meaning trusting in God.
You see our faith not only helps us, but becomes a type of a certain foundation. Never assume a person of faith is a nitwit or naïve. You have no idea what they have been through. And my wife and I want nothing to do extremist politics, which is totally off target. I’m speaking of a heart filled with love.
Back to those small tumors……they turned out to be benign! So we didn’t have to walk through the fire this time……and we thank God for that. A small yet important victory.
