{"Like a beacon of light springing forth from the woods." That was my thought when I took this picture.}

"Continue in your faith, established and firm.."

Colossians 1:23 NIV

We may have things in our lives that are so hard they almost take us under, but if we have faith in God we can make it.

We get physically tired and mentally tired of all the trials. I know, I have many..

It seems to be too much most of the time.

I want to encourage you today not to give up.

Look for something that makes you happy. Find something just for you.

Take the time every single day to do whatever makes you happy and you will be a better person for it.

Today's song, The Ballad of Curtis Lowe by Lynyrd Skynyrd

For John..

John always looked for the good in others...

He always said, "No one is useless or worthless! Maybe misunderstood, but not useless or worthless." We all have a purpose on this earth.
