I am all about finding what I call, “hidden little gems.” Quite simply, this is just discovering something unexpected in an unexpected time or place.

I’m sure many of you, including myself, have felt this way.  You try and try to take care of yourself, only to run into failure at some point.  Then you become upset and maybe even depressed and conclude that there is no use trying any more because you always fail.

The sad news is, we will always fail.  We’re human!  There is no possible way for us to escape failure.  It is in our DNA.  After the fall, we were doomed to always fail at some point in our lives.

However, there is good news.  God is graceful.  No matter how much we mess up, He is still there when…
