I am encouraged

to persevere.

Even when I feel like I don’t know what to write about,

or what needs to be heard.

I write to share about the overwhelming Goodness that God has lavished on me

despite the ugliest and darkest of times.

Remember, the smallest flicker of light overcomes the darkest of

nights. -Gracie K. Harold
