This is a picture, taken by my husband, of our pond on a foggy morning.
Earthly safety is but an illusion. Real safety is when we abide in our Father’s hands. It’s only then that we can be“convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ~Romans 8:38-39 (NIV)
One year, many people watched Tim Tebow’s team, the Broncos, in the playoffs. The Broncos were crushed by the Patriots, as most of the world knows.
Tebow had this to say:
"I just wanted to show character. You just continue to fight, and it doesn’t change who you are, who you play, how you go out there. You should be the same at all times. That’s what I wanted to show. It didn’t matter whether it was the first play or the last play or you were down by 42. I was going to be the same player and I was still going to give everything I have. Because that’s all I have to give. Every time I step on the field, I’m going to give my whole heart, regardless score-wise of what’s happening."
Failing doesn’t matter. We still keep our focus, stay the same, still remain children of God, and give everything we have, our “whole heart.” When we do, God will be with us. "But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you." ~Matthew 6:33
Stay focused and seek God, no matter what, and he will guide you in your writing. Trust his promises!

This is a real fish! The eyes are inside of the clear dome of its head. One day I hope to write a sci-fi book. Perhaps my aliens will have some of the physical traits seen in this weird fish!
