Everyday Gifts: Trust


my ancestors first came to this little valley six generations ago...

everyday was a struggle to survive and be self sufficient...

i often wonder how they carried on...

the calling to become a steward of the land and His creatures, to me, is one of the greatest...

each day there are trials...

each day there are doubts...

each day we face similar struggles as those who came before...

but each day we are trusted...

trusted with His creations...

and we carry on...
