“Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives is a preparation for a future only He can see.” ~Corrie ten Boom
Isn’t this the truth and what a great reminder about being grateful for the difficult times in our lives and the many lessons we learn along the way! Lessons of Faith, Trust, Forgiveness and how to be Grateful for the good and the bad.
“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is to just try one more time.” ~Thomas Edison
How many times have you come close to giving up on something but then decided to give just one more try and then found yourself succeeding? I know I have🙋♀️.
I’ve also witnessed this first-hand with our 8 year old granddaughter, recently. She is a very good horse rider/whisperer. She excels at this beyond her years. But, one of her horses, a rescue horse, is very frisky and doesn’t really like to be ridden.
But, with the help of her father and a strong determination to gain the trust and confidence of the horse she set out to conquer both hers and the horse’s fears. She must have tried 3 – 4 times to get on the saddle. With each and every try and her father by her side, the horse and the rider began to bond and soon trusted each other.
The triumph really paid off the next week at horse camp when she was the only rider (and probably the youngest) who was able to control the one of the more mature (and larger) of the horses! ❤
What are you trying to succeed at? Don’t give up….keep giving it “just one more try.”
Such a simple statement about how beautiful true friendship can be! You don’t need to have a lot of friends and sometimes the friends may not live close by. But the best of friends do make the world beautiful!
A while ago I started posting inspirational/motivational quotes on my Instagram Account. I typically post these on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays. They’re my way of inspiring and encouraging others through my photography and inspirational quotes. With the New Year in full swing, I thought it would be helpful to share these posts here. Sometimes I add my own thoughts about the quote and others times I find it more appropriate to let the quote and photography speak for themselves.
Below is this week’s quote. I hope you find it inspiring!
