I came across this poem in a book buried in my art room and thought I'd post it here.....it spoke volumes to me after all the trails hubby and I have endured this past year......and we never quit or ever gave up!
When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road your 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 strange with it's twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When you might have won had you 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 just 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.
I stood on God's promise that He will never leave me or forsake me.....we never gave up and now that it's all said and done.....to God be the glory!
