  • Adversity builds character. It is through our helping ourselves that our character is realized. It is the heart of our inner strength.

  • Yes, because many things in life you cannot control, you can do all you can and what your are suppose to do, but sometimes fate steps in and makes you take a different turn. When you are at your breaking point, who do you rely on??? In this fucked up world...got to believe in something. I walk by faith because I know there is a larger purpose and destiny than what i can see or imagine.
