As I mentioned during my last post, I am going through a judicious decision making process regarding my future. Fortunately, there are no possible negative outcomes, I just like being in control of my life, and that's what is difficult for me. However, I am surprisingly calm. I know my family's support and prayers have been extremely helpful, but your gracious comments last week really helped too. Thank you.

Curiously, I found this quote last weekend, which I jotted down a while back, when clearing my desk. It reads, "Trust the wait. Embrace the uncertainty. Enjoy the beauty of becoming. When nothing is certain, anything is possible." It's attributed to Mandy Hale, but may be anonymous. It reminds me of Jesus' advice found in Mark 5:36, "Don't be afraid; just believe." It certainly addresses my current life journey.

I have also been praying and meditating through my artwork, but I do that regularly. LOL! I am blessed to have my artwork which brings joy to my life through all situations. I made this banner with the monogram IC XC, which is Greek for Jesus Christ. I surprised my wife with it to decorate our home during this Lent season and the upcoming Easter season.

Denise & Roger's ABC Wednesday - Letter J
Therefore, I'm moving on forward with a jaunty attitude, just like this swan jauntily gliding through the water. Strong, self-confident, and distinct. Isn't it glorious! I took this shot during my last trip to Austin, Texas, at Lady Bird Lake. My daughters took me walking there, and we were thrilled to find this beauty. I was glad I had my Nikon with me.)
Anyway, have a jovial week, my blogging followers and friends!
