Quote: Courage

Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow.  Mary Anne Radmacher

Mary Anne Radmacher

The Lord is my shepherd…

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

The Lord is my shepherd

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

 

A bend in the road …

Poem by Helen Steiner Rice: A bend in the road …

Sometimes

we come to life’s crossroads

And we view what we think is the end.  

But God has a much wider vision

And He knows it’s only a bend–

The road will go on and get smoother

And after we’ve stopped for a rest,

The path that lies hidden beyond us

Is often the path that is best.  

So rest and relax and grow stronger,  

Let go and let God share your load

And have faith in a brighter tomorrow.

You’ve just come to

a bend in the road.
Helen Steiner Rice
