As I have written in Chapter Eleven in my book, MONDAY MOMENTS, trials are a natural part of our existence while we are here on this earth. The trials and adversities we will face will be different for each one of us. Many will find their journey through difficult times inescapable, as if lost in a thick fog, while others may choose a path lit with faith and hope and take one day and one step at a time. While the passage through hard times affects each person differently, I do promise you this. We have one God who loves us unconditionally and wants to help us through such times. He is aware of our every need and will help us to see the sunshine again.

For each of you, I pray that your trials will be few. However, I know from my own experiences that our personal growth and character will be forever changed for good if the path we choose is to take the hands of family and friends, have faith, and climb the mountain before us one step at a time. Be gentle with yourself.

Have a beautiful week!
