We all have them. As a matter of fact, we all ARE one of them.

Drain or Drink

Drain the ever-lovin' life from your marrow


provide a drink of exhilarating life.

It is a choice.

We can choose to complain, rain on and drain those around us with our constant, grumbling attitude


we can choose to think, drink and not shrink from the calling to shine!

“Don't grumble against each other, brothers, or you will be judged.” James 5:9 NIV
