For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

If nothing ever changed there’d be no butterflies.



THE ONLY THING CERTAIN IN LIFE IS CHANGE. CHANGE IS FOR CERTAIN.

If you are sad one day - you can be sure that there will be laughter another.

If there is laughter one day - you can be sure that there will be tears another.

If you're filled with happiness, you can be sure at some time, you will be filled with sadness.

The stress of this moment will not last, neither will the relaxation.

Anger will change to acceptance.

Fear will turn to strength.

If nothing ever changed there’d be no butterflies.



Happy Birthday to Catherine Booth and Ben Franklin -

"To try and fail is at least to learn. To fail to try is to suffer the loss of what might have been." ~ Benjamin Franklin

Catherine Booth - the wife of the founder of the Salvation Army -

At that time, it was unheard of for women to speak in adult meetings. She was convinced that women had an equal right to speak, however, and when the opportunity was given for public testimony at Gateshead, she went forward. It was the beginning of a tremendous ministry, as people were greatly challenged by her preaching. She also spoke to people in their homes, especially to alcoholics, whom she helped to make a new start in life. Wikipedia

Nothing stops change, that's for sure. Many of it hate it so..or rather I should say...fear it so.
Sometimes it's good, and sometimes not. But, all in all, it's going to happen, regardless!
Hope that your trip is a happy one. Baby hugs, nothing better!
