But my experience is that people who have been through painful, difficult times are filled with compassion.
More important than talent, strength, or knowledge is the ability to laugh at yourself and enjoy the pursuit of your dreams.
Life is a process, and you just take it a day at a time, and you can't live in tomorrow, and you can't reach back and be in yesterday.
I refuse to believe that we're only here to live and die.
You do your best, you do all this stuff, but the only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.
If it all just happened overnight, you would never learn to believe in what you cannot see.
If you went to your closet today, would you pull out the same outfit you wore 10 or 15 years ago? You wear feelings and faith differently as well.
There's a beauty to wisdom and experience that cannot be faked. It's impossible to be mature without having lived.
The more time you invest in a marriage, the more valuable it becomes.
There is not a formula for the way that God heals. There's not a timetable.
