I read the following quote by Aristotle, several years ago, in a student submitted paper, “I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies, for the hardest victory is over self”. Thought provoking in many areas. Conquering my enemies can seem very desirable. It is easy for me to desire vengeance. But I have been repeatedly reminded that… “vengeance is mine, I will repay says the Lord”: Romans 12:19. Prayers appreciated as I seek the high road.


Easy to concur.

Canker sore.

Crave for more.

Appetite never sated.

Be braver.

Give to the Saver/Savior.

Savor the victory.

Self to the Savior.

Battle won.
