It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 8, Page 16, Book 18


We all have weaknesses.  But I have figured that others have put up with mine so tolerantly that I would be less than fair not to make a reasonable discount for theirs.

William Allen White

Because I’m weak, I am strong


May your have the strength to enjoy your weaknesses.

Florence Edwards

We all have times that we have a hard time juggling all the things we have to do.  At the end of the day we feeling like we’re drained, weak and insufficient because we cannot keep up with it all. 

Not many will be boast of being weak, but I’m here to tell you the only strength I have at all is because I am a weak person.



I am strong because I am weak.  I am beautiful because I know my flaws.  I am a lover because I am a fighter.  I’m fearless because I have been afraid .  I am wise because I have been foolish .  I can laugh because I’ve know sadness.

There are times in my life when I really struggle.  There are times when I want to stop caring and just give up.  But failures and mistakes only help to make us stronger.  

I’ve messed up and I’ve struggled, I’m only human, I am weak.   I have so much to be thankful for that I really have no reason at all to complain.  My family, my friends are always there for me.

And through it all I gained strength.  My weakness became my strength .  It is a hard lesson to learn.  With the good Lord's help, I get back up each time I fall .  Sometimes I’m weak and tired, but I’ve found the strength to go on.  


Our great strengths are our greatest weaknesses.

Gordon Livingston

And then there were applauds because for me, YOU ARE RIGHT!

THANKS for the everyday reminder

Funny, I read Billy Graham Daily Hope Devotion Book - and it was on the same subject - loving yourself and forgiving others.

When I am weak, I am strong in God. He gives me the strength that I need to get through the day and the hard times. I just have to draw from him :)

This one took a moment for me to digest but I think it’s right on the money.
