      Pleasure as always when you stop by and actively participate in the discussion. I am with you that life is full of surprises – it’s what I often call the trials and temptations and things that come to steal our joy and peace.

      But key to overcoming or rather to get through life a lot easier is to maintain an attitude of gratitude. It is not so much what happens to us but how we respond to the various challenges we face.

      Life was meant to be enjoyed and to live it abundantly. Yes we must thank God for giving us a great life. Have a wonderful day. Cheers! 🙂
