Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. (Theodore Roosevelt, 26th U.S. president)

Some of us are dreamers, wishing we could accomplish some great feat but thinking we are limited by our lack of special ability, the environment, or the lack of resources. Roosevelt, himself a soldier and intrepid explorer, would undoubtedly rebuke us for our lack of initiative. We need to look at what we have, our opportunities, and push forward aggressively.

[We pray], asking God to make you strong and perfect, fully confident that you are following the whole will of God. (paraphrase of Colossians 4:12)
