unfortunatly we grow the most............

You've probley heard this before, but since I'm in the midst of it , I'm learning anew. " trials make us stronger", "its during our darkest hours that we grow, learn about ourselves, become closer to our Heavenly Father", oh, and learn , oh, and see our weakness's. And, today I feel so grateful for this. Its been a few years of ease that has found me not making changes in my life. There is NOTHING more miraculous then finding the strength to change something about us that seems impossible to change. I believe it can't be done without the help of a higher power.  Years ago, in a dark time of my life, I was in therapy for childhood sexual abuse. I had lived with certain mind sets that were such a part of me I could not believe they could be changed. That is when I experienced the miracle of change.It was alot of work, alot of pain, but it happened and I'm looking forward to it happening again and am so grateful  that " our weakness's can make us humble  and then strong".  We read about problems all over the world, people loosing everything, people dealing with starvation, all kinds of illness, financial problems, ....... and you know I really feel blessed that the Lord has seen fit to try me and my family once more.I know we'll come through this stronger, hopefully more compassionate, kinder, and have more of a willingness to serve.
