Fatigue

When we are going through a long difficult struggle with our health or other matters, we get tired. Fatigue shows up and the doubts appear. We wonder if we will ever get well, if circumstances will ever change. We might begin to believe that things will stay the same, no matter how much we believed before. This is the time that we must stay strong. This is the time when our faith is being tested. Don't give in to the fatigue and doubts. We need to focus on the finish line. As Winston Churchill said, "When you're going through hell, keep going."

Hope

This quote on hope is attributed to Desmond Tutu, the South African cleric who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984. According to his Wikipedia page, Tutu originally wanted to become a doctor. He had already "secured admission to study medicine at the University of the Witwatersrand, however, his parents could not afford the tuition fees." He instead studied to become a teacher. His first job out of college was teaching English at Madibane High School. He would later join the clergy and then became involved in eliminating Apatheid , leading to the Nobel Peace Prize. As of this posting, Tutu is 88 years old. A fan of classical music, cricket, reading, and much much more he certainly has led a full life with his share of accolades, however, like many of us had his difficulties and challenges. As a child he contracted polio, and as an adult he received death threats because of his activism. But despite all of this, he became an important figure who accomplished so much.
