Photo of the Week

"The world may get rough at times. The seas shaky and the winds turbulent. Sometimes you need to let go of your hold and, on faith, drop your sail and wait out the storm. It is only when the clouds clear and the waves subside that you can raise your sail back up. Through the dropping of your sail you are able to regain faith at a stronger purpose." From the poem Sailing Through Life by @jagodm50
