"People are often unreasonable and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind people may accuse you of ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.
Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway."
When we started our journey over four years ago, one of our first extended parking spots was the backyard of this special church family. We are so grateful for the hospitality of Pastor Phil and Tammy and time to worship together again this past weekend.
Over the past couple of months, we've had the joy of helping to wrap gifts (lots) for children whose parents are either deceased, imprisoned or otherwise not involved as well as teen moms.
The sweetest treat this Thanksgiving was the smiles of families receiving turkey baskets!
We sat at Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price's meeting room table this afternoon as she warmly answered questions from each of the kids.
After spending the past few months thinking we had lost a year's worth of pictures (restored thankfully!) thought we should preserve a few favorites here.
Last winter at Grandpa and Grandmas acreage before it was sold last spring...
One of the best moments of every day... Squishing in their bed above the cab and reading.
Or sometimes we just find them reading together in the night...
