Despite what your circumstances may be telling you, you are profoundly and deeply loved by God, uniquely engineered to bring your brand of goodness to this earth, and irreplaceable. The things that happen to you and around you are temporary. Please know that.
These pictures make me smile. I hope they do the same for you. Life is so very good.
