~It takes more courage to keep going when you know you might fail than it does to keep going when you're sure you can triumph!~

Indeed a great phrase to remind us all the time. Let it also be known that struggles are natures way of making us strong. It's just sometimes it's hard to understand them but we just have to believe that there's always daylight every after dark storm.

Hi JSirrob, thank you for your response and I most sincerely hope that it's true...I am going through a depression right now because of my financial situation, as is everyone else on the face of the planet...I am trying to keep my head above water and trying to see things as a glass half full and not half empty :-( It's hard though but I think I'll survive... ~G~

It is really so hard when you are down under it and most of us think that we are not getting any help at all. I have been into so many troubles in the past and just recently I've been pressed to the point of giving it up but I turn to the almighty for guidance and giving it up to Him to decide where I am suppose to be. God works in mysterious ways and on time you least expect it. All we have to do is to trust and believe, things happen in due time and in His time not our time. Most of the times, it's hard to understand it but we just have to keep our faith strong. What makes you a man is what you do when the storm comes, a reminder from the movie The count of Monte Cristo.

now that is absolutely right, I totally agree, it is so hard to pick yourself up when you are down, but we can do it.

I do agree with you. When we still persevere even if think we might not succeed is courageous. Heroes and scientists are like that. They learn from the failures and mistakes, and try and try again until they succeed. If we do not have the courage to keep on going, we will never know what is right and wrong.
