Regardless of the issues that may be hitting you right now, you are still taking in oxygen.

Get up, look up. You are alive.
Whatever you havefaced and gone through cannot define you.
Don’t say it destryed you…
You are taking in air and putting out carbon dioxide. We inhale life and exhale the toxins that coukd harm us.
We inhale hope and let go of fear.
We inhale peace and exhale chaos.
You are here.
The greatest gift on earth is the God given ability to tske in air. Breathe.
There is still an opportunity to grow, to chabge, to make new choices, to let go of the past and tske hold of hope.
During this quaratine many do not know how to face life alone.
Many feel lost and think they are dead inside.
Depression seems to be chok oí ng their ability to think positively.
Well here is a cup of hope.
Today you opened your eyes.
Today you can read these lines.

God is able to see us through.
This weeping has gone on and on.
Now its time to Press On.
