My turn on earth

Blessed are the cracked, for they let the light in!


Since writing is a part of me and since I love writing more than doing practically anything else, it's only fitting that I should have a journal going. I've had one for years, but from time to time my computer messes up and I don't have the entries anymore.
So on here, I have them neatly organized where I can print them out and bind them and hand them down to my grandchildren.

Hopefully, by writing most of my ponderings and most of my actions, I can look back and see my motivations, how I solved my problems. I hope these writings can be of use to someone, one day.

I pray that I may inspire some to live better, to do more and to see the bigger picture of our lives.

Abraham Lincoln said, in the end it's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years.
