When life gets hard, I remember that it's the right kind of hard. It's right, not because I know what's right, but because I have God in my heart, and He knows what's right. I am a stumbling child and, I am an old man, and thanks to Him I understand what that means; I cannot outrun the devil, and I don't have to.

Jesus was, is, and always will be the best God has to offer. If we refuse to accept God's best, then why should God accept us into Heaven.
Trust and walk with Him in earnest, with no ulterior motives, not even that of getting into Heaven, but rather, simply do the job He gives you here on earth. In this way, you will gain from His love and wisdom, and have riches to store in Heaven. And because you did the job He gave you, all the world will move closer to Heaven.

Twenty-two degrees, and as good as any summer's day, in a soft mat of brown grass, flat on my back, no cigars, no ticks, no poison ivy, just sunshine so warm and cozy, and winter air so clean in my lungs, like fresh made from the hand of God. Over my shoulder, my horse stands content. It's midday, and the sun stands aside, that I might gaze up to the pure blue heaven.
