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 saw my first robins yesterday which made me smile.

But "I didn't know any better" made me laugh. I know some adults that use that same line.

Your list is very much a blessing. Thank you for sharing and inspiring!
