"I'm always trying something different," he said. "I just experiment. … I know a lot of people may have more talent than I do – but I'm harder-working." ~ Farrell Hamann, Artist

Every action has a Re-action. Whether immediate, or delayed, there are consequences for all we do. Is all that we can hope is that we did enough good things to offset all the bad? Or that our good consequences can outweigh our bad?

When it comes right down to it, life does not have to be fair, nor does it have to be just. Where can we find mercy & justice?

Search all we may. Do good every day. It secures no peace or wealth or health. Trials are part of life. To avoid them would be nice but, just like to pothole you dodge too late, there they are. You find yourself right in the middle of trials and consequences. You don't get to choose them, you only get to chose what you will do with them.

If you let them win, you loose. If you deny about them, they catch up to you. Analyze them. Humble yourself enough to learn all you can from them. Hit them head-on and use them as stepping stones. Don't let them be stumbling blocks.

Even through trials, the only guarantee for true happiness and peace is through our Savior. He understands. He knows what we are feeling. He knows the trials we face. He knows what we need, we just need to ask. If we will humbly reach for His out-stretched hand, that is where we will find Mercy, Justice, Love, Peace, True Happiness...

Have faith He will help you.
Humble yourself & ask for forgiveness.
Learn from your mistakes.
Do all that you can to serve.

My Newest Passion

Hand Painted, Free-hand Stippled Grow Chart for a Charity Auction. What would you put for the starting Bid? Hope it brings plenty of money for the YW/YM camp funds tomorrow. It took 4 hours, lots of paint & really relieved a lot of stress from my life! Hope they like it as much as I enjoyed creating it!
