Sometimes in life our struggles are of our own making or not. I am thankful and grateful for the grace that God is showing me in the midst of this struggle. I have a choice to not let this struggle define me or defeat me. I have learned that like Rome, struggle wasn't born in a day, and my win won't come like that either. Goodness and pain do not come or go away as quickly as we'd like. I can't click my heels like Dorothy. I'd like those ruby slippers though.
I do not give as the world gives. I have to believe that Lord!
