"A waiting person is a patient person. The word patience means the willingness to stay where we are and live the situation out to the full in the belief that something hidden there will manifest itself to us."

Isn't it Funny...

How you can find yourself in situations that at one time you would never have been able to deal with, but you do deal with it & grow stronger, tougher & gentler all at the same time.

How the word humble & humbled can take on new meaning, again & again.

How being alone can mean being lonely in a crowd yet never fully alone because your conversing with God all the way through it.

How beautiful people are...especially children!  Children are truly GIFTS from God!  Open vessels wanting only to be filled with love, encouragement, guidance, & acceptance.
Religion today is not transforming people; rather it is being transformed by the people. It is not raising the moral level of society; it is descending to society's own level, and congratulating itself that it has scored a victory because society is smilingly accepting its surrender.

... A. W. Tozer (1897-1963)
