Keep Growing

Thought for the Week

“The media only writes about the sinners and the scandals. But that’s normal, because a tree that falls makes more noise than a forest that grows.” ~Pope Francis

Healthy trees never stop growing.

    So true Mitch, watching the media gives a fruitless result, they will lie when they don’t distort.
