Strength

There is in every true woman's heart a spark of heavenly fire,
which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity; but which
kindles up and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity.

~Washington Irving

That statement is so true. Funny thing is....we don't realize how true until we are faced with what seems to be impossible.
Beautiful picture!!!

So glad to see you. It's been pretty boring around here without your sense of humor. Please know that you have been in my thoughts and prayers. Always remember that the Lord knows what we need, even when we don't have the words to ask.

So very true. I love everything Washington Irving--an often overlooked American genius. Beautiful photo, too. I hope you and yours are well.

That's a beautiful photo! Such colour and texture. Really lovely.

I also believe those words to be true. Very powerful.

Miss your blogs, Mom! I suppose it might have something to do with four miniature people always in your hair, but I still miss these blogs!
