STOP AND THINK – Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance. (Samuel Johnson, 18th century English writer and critic)

It’s not only the big and the strong who succeed. We often are amazed at the achievements of smaller and weaker people who accomplish surprising feats, not because of their strength but because they didn’t give up. Life has taken them through hard times and over difficult obstacles. But they persevered.

As you know, we count as blessed those who have persevered. (James 5:11)
