i find that in sharing some of my trials with all of you,
that i am really "never" alone.
there is always someone, somewhere who has trials "beyond" my own.
trials that i don.t think i would have the capacity to endure.
trials that make me grateful that "my own" trials in life...
...are custom made just for me.
just for chrissy.
when trials creep up in my life, i often think..
"ok. why this lesson AGAIN? what am i not learning?"
but i read something today that reminded me that...
"sometimes that which we are doing is 'correct enough' but simply needs to be persisted in...PATIENTLY...not for a minute or a moment but sometimes for years."
i am trying my best to appreciate the trials that come my way.
and to look at them as opportunities to grow.
i want to be the kind of person who endures my trials with faith.
my blog is named CUL*TI*VATE
i need to remember "why" i chose that name.
"to prepare. to grow. to develop. to nurture"
i am a believer in that
"whatever ye sow, that shall ye also reap."
between the "sowing" and the "reaping" lies
"ENDURING WITH PATIENCE"
the harvest. MY harvest depends on what i do once my seeds are sown.
i hope to be able to
as i cultivate this life of mine.
i offer my hope to you as well that you may be able to
endure the trials or strifes or bumps in your road.
you have been so kind to me during my "storms" and i am here for you in yours!
with all my love,
cultivate the patience to "endureth all things"
