Standing on Rocky Ground



Truedessa' s Collection




















Remaining strong during difficult times
Embracing challenges, persevering
Surviving the wrath of storms
I've been pulled, bent and broken
Learning the power of faith & love
I seek light through dark clouds
Enjoying the small wonders of life
Never giving up on hopes & dreams
Courage is the will to keep climbing
Empowerment of the higher self...
