...If you have problems in your life, don't assume there is something wrong with you. Struggling with those problems is at the very core of life's purpose. As we draw close to God, He will show us our weaknesses and through them make us wiser, stronger. If you're seeing more of your weaknesses, that just might mean you're moving nearer to God, not farther away.

- Bruce C. Hafen


(isn't that just an astounding thought? i can't get over it. i feel like shouting it from the rooftops but i probably should just go to bed. princess pearl's been waking up at 6 in the a.m.)

THanks Abby! That's a GREAT one! :-) love it. Hey, I have a early bird too! Gracie has been waking up at 6:30 EVERY morning... even if she goes to bed later, doesn't matter. So I'm gonna make sure she goes to bed at 7 pm. :-)

I am going to print that out and hang it on my mirror (in my car, bathrooms and bedroom), my refrigerator, back door, front door, pantry door, night stand, and any other place that i might look during the day. It is a beautiful thought. Thanks Abby.

i've heard that one before and have always loved it. it was nice to hear it again, and it couldn't have been posted at a better time. thanks for the reminder.

Thanks for the comment! I didn't realize that I had the comments on my investigating blog monitored in any way, but I have that changed now!

I'm supposed to be doing homework now, so I've just taken a quick scroll through your blog and I'll definitely be reading more later.

I really love the quote in this post, I might just have to use it for an investigating entry.

Hope to hear from you again!
