"Love Never Fails..."

"How easily we get caught up in defining who we are in relation to those around us... I have lived enough in the world to know by now that this is how our ambitions often evolve. We first find ourselves alone in the joy of what we're doing. But somehow, there are suddenly others along the way, and we lapse into the breathless race of comparison, and then we are hopelessly running to avoid being termed a failure."---an excerpt in Mark Nepo's "The Book of Awakening"

"Above All..."

 Let Love Leads...
"We can always be certain of this: As we walk through time, doing our part and allowing the seasons of life to work great changes in us, the God who inhabits eternity walks at our side, doing His deeply transforming work."
Of this we can be sure: We are never left on our own!

Take Hold Of This Truth...
It's a gift of faith and hope to be able to trust that God is at work in our relationships, our families, our work, and even in our own hearts.  

Remember This...
Begin your journey with God.
Choose your traveling companions wisely.
Place high value on wisdom.
Leave your baggage behind.
Own your faults and weaknesses.
Embrace problems as gifts.
Take life as it comes.
Love God with all you are.
