There is a poem called “Go Forth” which helps put perspective in our lives. A few verses of the poem are below:
Be thankful for the difficult times, for it is during these times that we grow.
Be thankful for your limitations because they give you opportunities to improve.
Be thankful for your mistakes, they will teach you valuable lessons.
You teach us to give what can’t be bought or sold,
that is the gifts of love from our hearts.
Help us always to give thanks for your gifts
of compassion, kindness, forgiveness, mercy and grace.
Fill our hearts with your love,
so we can share these gifts with others.
In Christ’s name,
South Entrance - Mrs. Martin
