Going through some hard times round here, which seem to have drained away all my energy, not to mention my love of writing on this blog o’mine. However, this quote makes me smile and gives me hope that I’ll be back to “normal” soon…
Count the garden by the flowers, never by the leaves that fall. Count your life with smiles and not the tears that roll.
And, of course this:
When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. (NLT)
And my all-time favorite:
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” (NLT)
