Nothing is more constant than change as they say -
One thing after another has been happening from
the beginning of April until today, the end of April -
My life has been turned upside down in so many ways. . .
Some would say they are all bad -
I will say they are all necessary!
Thankful for the knowledge that I have a Heavenly Father
who knows me and loves me for who I am
and What He Knows I Can BECOME -
The many experiences in these last 30 days have
changed my life forever - I have come to understand
that nothing is permanent and nothing is fair -
but all experiences that we have can be learned from
and all opportunities that present themselves can be
for our good, if we are willing to accept them
With an attitude of learning and growth!
Serving others is the best way to UNDERSTAND
who you are and what you can BECOME -
Stay busy doing good, look forward to the little things
that come our way, appreciate others goodness
and seek the guidance of the Spirit in all areas.
