National Poetry Day

Today it is national poetry day... (as well as grouch day but I decided not to celebrate that one...)

And one poet we really appreciate is Helen Steiner Rice.  And as we ourselves are going through a tough time with business and the church plant, I thought to put a poem about faith and perseverance.

Climb Till Your Dream Comes True

Often your tasks will be many,
   and more than you think you can do.
Often the road will be rugged,
   and the hills insurmountable, too.
But always remember, the hills ahead
   are never as steep as they seem,
And with faith in your heart, start upward
   and climb till you reach your dream.
For nothing in life that is worthy
   is ever too hard to achieve
If you have the courage to try it
   and you have the faith to believe.
For faith is a force that is greater
   than knowledge or power or skill,
And many defeats turn to triumphs
   if you trust in God's wisdom and will.
For faith is a mover of mountains -
   there's nothing that God cannot do -
So start out today with faith in your heart
   and climb till  your dream comes true.
