“He’s probably – oh he’s probably five weeks old now, maybe. Could be a couple of months before we turn him loose, and then off he’ll go, and he’ll have his own family.

“You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go – and see what happens.” – Mandy Hale

I asked God, “Why are you taking me through troubled water?”
He replied, “Because your enemies can’t swim.”
God, grant me the Serenity
To accept the things I cannot change…
Courage to change the things I can,
And Wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as the pathway to peace.
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it.
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His will.
That I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with Him forever in the next.
