Life is meant to be lived in a joyous, loving, thankful manner. Our Maker, in my opinion, meant it that way – for all. But we need to work for that ultimate reality. Life is a gift from God. What we do with it is largely up to us – one by one, but also in many collective ways.
Challenges face us all and the reality is not that all we face is good, but that we try, try, try to overcome whatever the adverse cards we are dealt.
In a way, a very special way, bad cards can become good if we summon the will to rise above them in a positive way – the road less traveled.
