Be Strong!!

One of my favorite kind of greeting cards are made by the company, "Blue Mountain Arts"  On one of our last trips on the road, we stopped at a gas station and I found this little book made by Blue Mountain and I wanted to share some words about being strong from it:


Taken from the book, "Words To Help You Be Strong"

"There have been times when I've found myself wondering ...

 how am I going to make it through?

 What can I possibly do to remedy a certain problem?

How am I ever going to figure out what direction to go in from here?

And then I remember these words ...

        "When you must, you can."

That phrase has proven itself to be true in almost everything I've done.

I've had days when I found strength inside me that I didn't even know I had.

I found answers to problems I thought I'd never solve ...

I have surprised myself with my ability to rise above certain situations and do what it take to find my serenity.

At times when I didn't think I could go on another day, I reached deep and kept the faith and managed to find a way ...

It's something I plan on remembering as long as I live, and I hope it will bring its beautiful blessings ... to you.

         "When you must, you can."

You can see your way through.
