Life’s Victories & Failures, Joys & Pains

“I’m telling people life is full of ups and downs, victories and failures, joys and pains, good and ugly,
and someday it’s all going to come to something beautiful.
Sometimes we don’t understand. Sometimes it’s to develop us or to focus us.
But it’s all for a reason. … When I look at my life and how far I’ve come,
I have to say it’s a masterpiece. I’m blessed through it all.”
~ Deitrick Haddon,
Singer, Songwriter, Arranger, Producer, Pastor, Actor & Pianist
