Another great Quote that gives me perspective!

"The challenges you face, the growth experiences you encounter, are intended to be temporary scenes played out on the stage of a life of continuing peace and happiness. Sadness, heartache, and disappointment are events in life. It is not intended that they be the substance of life. I do not minimize how hard some of these events can be. When the lesson you are to learn is very important, trials can extend over a long period of time, but they should not be allowed to become the confining focus of everything you do. Your life can and should be wondrously rewarding. It is your understanding and application of the laws of God that will give your life glorious purpose as you ascend and conquer the difficulties of life. That perspective keeps challenges confined to their proper place--stepping-stones to further growth and attainment."

I post these quotes because they truly help me put things into perspective. I Joke and say that I can't handle anymore that comes my way...that my family has had enough crud throwm at as. But, I would be a fool If I didn't notice all the tender mercies that come from our trials. I know that I will always have trials, that's what makes us grow. I just hope that I will always be strong enough to "Get back up when I fall"!
