Friday Quotes 16

On trials and adversity:

As the tree is fertilized by its own broken branches and fallen leaves,
and grows out of its own decay,
so men and nations are bettered and improved by trial,
and refined out of broken hopes and blighted expectations.
-Frederick William Robertson

Yes, that is the symbolism of the phoenix bird. Out of the ashes of one's seeming demise, comes a far greater existence. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.

What a very inspirational post.

Life in Canada is fantastic. It has been very busy since I have been back with family and friends. The weather has held warm for me so far which is very nice indeed.
It is good to be home :)

How are the Tropics treating you these days?
