tears.

A four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman had recently lost his wife.

Upon seeing the man cry , the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard , climbed onto his lap , and just sat there.

When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor , the little boy said ,

‘Nothing , I just helped him cry’

hidden beauty.

Sometimes, nature comes to us.

But most of the time, we have to go to nature.

The best things are often hidden away.

Go.

Find some hidden beauty and linger for awhile.

friday’s quote.

Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace.

-Victor Hugo

take heart.

The tell-tale signs are there.

Here, in the Northeast, the vibrant greens are slowly fading. A heavy dew clings to spent flowers.  And at night, there is a slight chill in the air.

Our lives are like that. We have seasons that begin and end. Seasons of calm and seasons of unrest.

What season are you in? Are you in a restful place of summer sunsets by the ocean? Or are you feeling desolate like a dreary, winter day?

Remember, seasons always end. But a new one is about to begin! Yes, even the cold winter sparkles.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, distraught, or lonely, take heart. It won’t last forever.

dare to believe.

What if around the corner, everything will change?’

What if you could step into another dimension and see life very differently than you do right now?

Life is more than what you see.

Today may be grim with heartache and discouragement. You may be lonely and really believe no one cares.

Things are not always as they appear.

God has figured our sadness into the equation and knows you will smile again.

What if God has your concerns taken care of? And you just are not aware of it?
