This picture caught my fancy. One it's cute. Two, it got me to thinking of the safe, cozy place I'm sleeping while the firemen and other personnel are battling away against flames, smoke and incredibly rough terrain. Makes me quite thankful, actually.
Sometimes we find ourselves in difficult situations. I was going to write a post on standing to the test, facing our fears, enduring difficult situations, being thankful for a place to rest though it may not be perfect...but, I think you Get it. Will just share a quote:
"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved."
In looking for the evening's song, I happened upon this lullaby. It corresponded with the thought for the post title. The video is an interesting insight to a life I'm unfamiliar with, other than I knew that mining was both difficult and dangerous.
