It has proven difficult to juggle work and home and still try to come up with something to write, so today I will borrow some wisdom from others that I keep in files for times like this....if you see something that has not been credited appropriately, please let me know!
Despair is the absolute extreme of self-love. It is reached when a man deliberately turns his back on all help from anyone else in order to taste the rotten luxury of knowing himself to be lost.--Thomas Merton

God doesn't want to be me.
Sometimes my sponsor says prepare for the worst but dread nothing, because it is in God's hands, and know that He will not allow you to falter if you put one foot in front of the other. If He brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
When you get to your wit's end, you'll find God lives there.
