Webster's dictionary defines a token as an outward sign or expression; something given as a guarantee.
Psalm 86:17 reads:"Shew me a token for good; that they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed: because thou, Lord, hast holpen me, and comforted me". (KJV)
Alone one man or woman can change it all for everyone
a legacy of hope or pain they may leave behind
Alone they are one, reaching, inviting, rallying
with others they become many
Jesus the Christ, Mussolini, Mother Theresa, Adolf Hitler
Who we are when we're alone will be seen by many
What kind of legacy will we leave?
Alone, one force, one purpose
one focus alone to lead us to heaven or hell
Hope or despair, alone we can choose

Years ago I lost an earring my grandmother gave me. I looked and looked, but couldn't find it. I thought, "Well, I can't just wear one earring," so I tossed it. As time passed, I found myself cleaning out my junk drawer in the kitchen and voila. There was the missing earring! How, why or when it got there I have no idea, but it reminded me to never give up!
Hebrews 10:35 says, "So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded."

As the days pass on and become years there are many lessons lurking beneath life's fertile soil, crashing waves and the mountains we climb. Thank God we CAN learn. Thank God we do not need to be as the fool, who declares in his heart "There is no God" and stumbles through life without rhyme or reason.
Each year I reflect on the ups and downs of the passing year. What have I learned from the past until now?
Death hurts no matter how many times we witness its theft.
My body is the only one I have, so take care of it and listen to it.
Don't blow changes off. It may be more than you think.
Family and friends are always needed.

If you haven't read any of my posts before, I hope you have found your way here to "TRY" something new and found it worth the trip. May you be encouraged. Blessings and peace to everyone! Here are my thoughts for this week's prompt.
Take the plunge Relish every minute You never know how things will turn out until you TRY
I recently saw a posting on FB that read, "If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine, it's lethal". Routine is safe and comfortable. One knows what to expect, but if we never try anything new, we'll never grow. Recently I took my first trail horseback riding through the woods. I was nervous. We were outside the arena. Amber, the fifteen hundred pound draft horse I ride, is a lot of horse! She moved faster than I ever thought. Cool breezes blowing, leaves rustling, an open hillside, and she was excited. I was nervous, but went, rode and lived to tell about it. I'm looking forward to the next one.
