I wanted to share a wonderful quote:

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts."

Good Friday

Blessing to everyone on this Good Friday

We are saved not by 
what we do
But by what Christ
has done.

It is finished.

I let my dog Mac out this morning and noticed that the robins have returned! It was such a wonderful sight!

Enjoy your Good Friday.
