the more you can hear.


Don't Quit

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.



- Edgar A. Guest

You do not have a soul.

You ARE a soul.

You have a body.


Everything will be ok in the end.

If it's not ok, then it's not the end.


- John Lennon


Nothing changes,

if nothing changes.

Do the best you can until

you know better.


Then, when you know better,

do better.


- Maya Angelou

     - Jeremiah 29: 11, 13-14

Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.
