I look at the challenges you face
And your determination in making your case
Others would have given up
But you kept going not letting up.
Of you, we are so very proud
We tell everyone out loud
We all need to aspire
To share the story of those we admire.
So you are proof that if you believe
With God's help, you can achieve.
We look forward to the next goal you need
We know you will face it and exceed.
In His Power
Poet: Priscilla Leonard
No man can choose what coming hours may bring
To him of need, of joy, of suffering;
But what his soul shall bring unto each hour
To meet its challenge — this is in his power
As You Go Through Life
As you go through life
It is not always going to be easy.
You're going to have somebody say
Some things that are going to cut you to the core.
The sun will not always shine;
The flowers won't always bloom.
But I have found this out:
The storms that I go through are for my good,
Because no one appreciates the sunshine until
He has gone through the storm.
See It Through
Poet: Edgar A. Guest
When you’re up against a trouble,
Meet it squarely, face to face;
Lift your chin and set your shoulders,
Plant your feet and take a brace.
When it’s vain to try to dodge it,
Do the best that you can do;
You may fail, but you may conquer,
See it through!
Black may be the clouds about you
And your future may seem grim,
But don’t let your nerve desert you;
Keep yourself in fighting trim.
If the worst is bound to happen,
Spite of all that you can do,
Running from it will not save you,
See it through!
Even hope may seem but futile,
When with troubles you’re beset,
But remember you are facing
Just what other men have met.
You may fail, but fall still fighting;
Don’t give up, whate’er you do;
Eyes front, head high to the finish.
See it through!
What Lay Ahead
Poet: Sarah K. Bolton
The smallest bark on life's tempestuous ocean
Will leave a track behind for evermore;
The lightest wave of influence, set in motion,
Extends and widens to the eternal shore.
We should be wary, then, who go before
A myriad yet to be, and we should take
Our bearing carefully, where breakers roar
And fearful tempests gather; one mistake
May wreck unnumber'd barks that follow in our wake.
Struggles In Life
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer
Struggles in life we all face
But we just need to embrace
The challenges life throws our way
Makes us stronger every day.
We should never forget
Nor should we stay upset
As to every problem, there is a solution
Even if we don't like the conclusion.
Life lessons and adventures are found
When challenges do compound
So face your challenges head on
And before you know it they'll be gone.
