I used to sit on the banks with a raft and watch the water roll lazily by. One day I pushed my raft into the shallows of the water and found the water moved swifter than I thought. My raft was actually a boat. Then, after some time, I rowed my little boat into deeper water. There were great storms, mighty winds, tremendous waves, and sometimes I felt so alone. But I have noticed my little rowboat is now a mighty ship manned by my friends and loved ones; and beautiful calm seas, warm sunny days, and nights filled with comfortable dreams always double after a storm. Now, I could never go back and sit on the bank. In fact, I search for deeper water. Such is life when lived. -B. D. Gulledge

A Keeper Quote: Life Lived
I love meaningful and/or funny quotes. I ran across this one and instantly it spoke to me. For those of you who know me, you know I've had my share of storms. But I feel that I am now in a place in my life where the calm has come and I can comfortably dream again. Thank you, God.
