If God brought you to it,
He will get you through it.

The Road Ahead


a time to reflect
severed ties there were many
what has gone awry?

a year marked by pain
perhaps the one ahead holds
a better promise...

that of beginnings
instead of tearful endings
long-lasting friendships

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.


"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino


If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
