It's me...I'm writing to let you know that I'm in this for the long haul. Every dip and curve just makes me more determined to finish the course. And, although I may not come in first place and I may be oddly decorated with scars and bruises...I'll definitely be at the finish line. For I have learned that no matter what today might bring, no matter how many tears might be shed, if I will just hold on and endure, today will pass. I will overcome and be stronger in the end because I know where my help comes from. Today's meltdown doesn't mean that I'm out; I'm simply pausing. I'll be back up in a moment, just you wait and see. My new focus on life is backed by I Peter 5:10, " But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you." That's my verse...and I'm sticking to it. I shall overcome!
