Mound Visits, 12/5/23
My parents were children in rural Kentucky during the Great Depression. I’ve heard the stories many times about how excited they were to get an orange, a few nuts and a few pieces of hard candy for Christmas. As a child, I was amazed how they never talked about being disappointed. Instead, their memories were of excitement and gratitude. God was with them. Emmanuel.
“I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.”-Helen Keller
