A Love Note. From God.

On particularly rough days, when doubt is easily harbored and I'm certain I can't possibly go on, I like to remind myself that my record for getting through bad days so far is 100%...and that's pretty good.

I took a rough little tumble...then I got up! I remain undefeated!

Challenges must be viewed as opportunities, portals for thoughtful reflection and personal growth. This gift came with a love note: "Joel, slow down. You're welcome, God." Such humor and irony!

The Gravel Road

One stone about
With a beautiful view
Just a rock in the road
At piece with you.

We accumulate 
And annotate
In aggregate.

We touch, we talk
Leave a place to walk
For tomorrow's traveler
We turn to chalk.
