"We must be arched and buttressed from within, else the temple will crumble to dust." Marcus Aurelius
What are your arches and buttresses? What keeps you from crumblng? Maybe it's the inner strength you gained when you went through a trial by fire. Or maybe it's knowing that the Lord is on your side. Always. Or maybe it's finding that your family and friends stood beside you when you went through that trial by fire.
Sometimes, when I am at a low point, I wonder if I have the strength to hold on when life throws its inevitable curves at me. And then I remember that I am never alone.
So, for today, I am grateful for the arches and buttresses of faith, family, and friends.
