Our best intentions don't always win out, and by the time Lent rolls around the promises of Christmas are often long forgotten
It's hard to hold fast to a vision, to turn dreams into reality or build something that wasn't there before.
Kenneth L. Samuel
Perhaps it is only when we acknowledge our lack of control that we really begin to trust the God who is always in control.

Sometimes we have to trust the sufficiency of tears.
