Daily I receive an e-quote of the day and am usually moved to share. Today's quote was no exception, I believe it's timely. It's a fine day, a great moment in my estimation to do just that, share with others our own moments when we persevered against all odds. I feel it in my spirit, I must PERSEVERE!
Yesterday my family and I witnessed two elderly women, each one holding the handle of a walker as they gingerly pressed their way through the streets, the tunnel, the bone chilling cold and the crowds all headed towards the National Mall for the inaguration festivities. Did I mention that the women hadn't met prior to their both walking towards the National Mall? One of them had to initiate the helping hand and ultimatley the supportive walker. My husband commented that those sweet ladies gave meaning to the word "pressing your way."
I am confident that we are encouraged as a community after such an historic occassion of the inauguration of this nation's 44th President Barack Obama to also press our way-to persevere in this life time through the hardships, setbacks, the inconveniences, the hurdles, uncertainties and the tough personal tests!
My friends presevere with Hebrews 12 tucked in your hearts. We will endure!
