From the Heart
(Is this message for you?)
Let your dream be bigger than your fear.
Hold on to your vision and persevere.
The fuel for your journey is a spark.
By perseverance the snail reached the ark.
Love always perseveres;
a force strong and true.
It motivates your best interests
and brings out the best in you.
Don’t despise the day of small things.
It is the small thing that forms the framework of our day.
Keep an attitude of gratitude
as the Lord leads you to do all things His way.
Father Jean Nicholas Grou wrote:
“Little things come daily, hourly, within our reach,
and they are no less calculated to set forward
our growth in holiness than are the greater occasions
which occur but rarely. Moreover, fidelity in trifles,
and an earnest seeking to please God in little matters
is a test of real devotion and love. Let your aim be to
please our dear Lord perfectly in little things.”
Love this poem by Edgar A. Guest
“When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
and you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow-
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out-
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are,
it may be near when it seems so far.
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit-
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit!”
