I'm struggling this morning, but it doesn't negate the gratitude in my heart for ALL God's gifts and goodness stored up for His children! I stand in AWE of His mercies--new every morning! Especially I'm grateful for His mercies regarding this LIFE-LONG journey to eating healthier, mindfully and moderately!!!! I've stumbled this week, and in some ways I feel very defeated this morning over that fact; however, the one who GETS BACK UP is not defeated! He is still in the fight! I'm not giving up!!!!!
"Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success."
