Listen earnestly to anything your children want to tell you, no matter what. If you don't listen eagerly to the "little stuff" when they are little, they won't tell you the big stuff when they are big; because to them, all of it has always been big stuff. ~Catherine M. Wallace #parenting
"Courage builds strength, strength builds endurance, "and endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. and this hope will not lead to disappointment. for we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with His love." (Romans 5:4-5)."
People may not always see the treasure God has placed within you, so don't place too much value on the opinion of others. Trust that God knows what's in you, and He will choose you even when others overlook you.
