I was reading an article in the May/June 2008 issue of Victoria Magazine http://www.victoriamag.com about writer Jan Karon. For those of you who may not be familiar with her, she wrote the “Mitford” series of novels. I discovered them when David was just a baby and I really enjoyed the stories about Fr. Tim, an Episcopal priest. She offered these words of inspiration which she had written in magic marker on the wall of her writing room:
There are three stages in the work of God: Impossible. Difficult.
– James Hudson Taylor
Whatever you would do, begin it. Boldness has courage, genius and magic in it.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
– Philippians 4:13
