Well, it is something when you get sick...throws everything off...including blogging. This year the weather has been quite unusual. I think that it plays a very large part in how germs are distributed. Anyway, I hope that all of you are doing well and the germ bugs have stayed clear of your paths.
As for the word of the day it is CHALLENGE. It seems to be a pretty good word that perhaps we meet face to face every day. We are always challenging our selves to become better, do better, act better. In this sense of the word...CHALLENGE seems to be a positive thing. We don't seem to ever CHALLENGE ourselves to become mean or to fail at our day....at least I hope not! And then their are the things in life that are a CHALLENGE to us. When we see something hopeless and cannot do anything about it. When we are faced with difficulties that we cannot change. The one thing that we can do in these moments is to have faith in God. If you ever saw the movie series "Love Comes Softly" there is a part where the wife looks at her husband and they are sitting on the mountain and she asks him how he can worship when he has had such hardships. He explains to her that he loves his daughter and would never want anything to happen to her. He cannot prevent her from falling down, he can only promise her to be there when she does. Just like God is in our lives. He is there when the CHALLENGE is presented. It is up to us to accept the CHALLENGE and have faith that we are not alone.
Quote for the day:
“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”
― Paulo Coelho
