Good Morning World! Life is not only a marathon, but at times it can be a relay. If we would learn the necessary lessons along the way, we would not have to repeat them thereby requiring the need for more endurance. Each day is an opportunity to examine our character and integrity against the standard that is set by the Word of God. Put the mirror of God's Word to your life. How do you look? Have a great day!

I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. Ecclesiastes 9:11
