My dearly departed Mother often said to me as a mere child:
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."

I often think of a young lady who went to school for many years, DETERMINED to obtain a job in the field of her choice.
Upon graduation, WITH HIGH HONORS, she found her choice of jobs few and far between.

9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
Luke 21:19 (KJV)

IF YOU WANNA SING THE BLUES THEN YOU GOTTA PAY THE DUES

I close today's HOPEFULLY ENCOURAGING message with:
Psalm 27:13-14 (KJV)
13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
14 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
There it is AGAIN! One of my FAVORITE Words in the Bible-FAINTED!!!!
My definition of FAINTED is:
TO LOSE COURAGE, GIVE UP!!!"
DON'T GIVE UP BELOVED SAINT!!
TODAY, "BELIEVE to SEE the GOODNESS OF THE LORD-
IN the LAND the LIVING!!!!!"
