A QUOTE TO START THINGS OFF WITH
The wonder is that when we know God’s forgiveness is based upon the infinite value of Christ’s finished work, we can have peace of mind and knowledge of His love, even in the midst of our weakness and depression. And again, we all have depressions too; since the Fall, none of us are psychologically healthy or perfect morally. And I must say that depressions are very hard. This is not unknown to me; though most people do not know it, I have my own periods of depression which are very difficult. . . . I speak her not from theory but from experience — in the midst of our down times we can know that His arms are about us, and that He does not let us go when our hands are as weak as water. - Francis Schaffer

BILL WATTERSON: A cartoonist’s advice from Zen Pencils
I can really relate to this strip, as I have always followed the road less travelled in my "professional" career. I think this has led many people to not "get me" over the years including family members. This was actually before I "stopped working" altogether and taught my children at home. After that, people really didn't know what to do with me.
Watterson's sage advice paired with these wonderful drawings really encouraged me that even though I am ending my 5 year journey as a happy SAHD, that my path on the road less travelled will continue to make all the difference.
