Keeping the Faith!

Despite continued setbacks inside, an HFP client stays optimistic:

"Honestly, what else is there to do? I liken it to the Apostles who replied to Jesus: “To whom shall we go?” They knew the right path, the right Person, so would follow Him to the very end. In a far, far reduced manner, the same is true for each knockdown I get from the PB, military, or anyone else. It hurts, but should I fall apart and turn into one of my embittered, depressed, and angry peers? Like that is a good option. Not! So, it is “Get back up and run the race to its conclusion,” as St. Paul would say. :)
