Confident Humility

“But when his heart was lifted up and his spirit became so proud that he behaved arrogantly, he was deposed from his royal throne and his glory was taken away from him.”  Daniel 5:20 (NASB)

A beautiful photo I found at fiftyfootshadows.net. Thought I’d share 🙂

The Spring term at Empire State College (ESC) has officially started, and I thought I was ready but then the flu came to visit.
