In Other Words Tuesday


By perseverance the snail reached the ark.
~ Charles Spurgeon ~: Imagine how the snail felt, as he watched all the other animals boarding the ark ahead of him. He could have easily just given up, and said forget it, I will just stay here and take my chances. But no, he continued on his journey to the ark, and persevered. We all need to follow the snails example, when our life gets tough. We should not be so quick to give up, we need to keep on keeping on. My health problems try to take over my life, there are times when it would be so easy to just totally give up. I choose not to, I am going to continue on my life's journey. I do not care how long it takes me, I will persevere. I am following you snail, so go snail go!!
