Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

I have been slacking on my list, only up to #36. Tomorrow morning I will add to it. Pretty easy once you get started.

#102 My Lake in October ~ I like that it is a personal lake gift especially enjoyed in the month of October.
