Winds of Change and True Direction

Adversity is like a strong wind. It tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that we see ourselves as we really are. ~ Arthur Golden

     What a gift this life is!  When we are young we dread getting old.  As we age, we find there is a certain satisfaction in the wisdom that time gives.  When the pain and difficulties of life peel away our outer shell, we emerge.  Like a butterfly escapes the bondage of its cocoon, so we find the newness of life.  A life of freedom in Christ to be who we are and who he meant for us to be and then we really live.
