A Work In Progress


God is the greatest mason,
and life's lessons are the clay, lime, and sand.
The bricks and path that lay before us,
are truly in His hands.


What we are is God's gift to us. What we become is our gift to God. ~Eleanor Powell

  6. Carrie, you are a shiny brick, but God's masonry is cracking up. We got him into this mess, we need to 'help him out' and wishing ain't gonna do it! Are you snowed in where you are? :-(

  17. So true. I wish I could see down the road...but only if what I see is what I want to see. I guess we all wish we knew more...but then we wouldn't need faith or trust.
