"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts."--Winston Churchill
Certainly, Churchill experienced more than his share of success and failure. Most of us could probably say the same. Over the last years, I've known both success and failure. The successes give me courage to continue; the failures remind me that I have a long way to go.
Sometimes, whether with my writing or with relationships, I wonder if it makes sense to keep trying. And then I remember that the Lord, our Savior, knew more than anyone of keeping trying, even when His earthly enemies prevailed.
Joy for today: having the courage to continue.
