FAITH

Faith makes us carry on
Not counting the cost ...
It makes us battle on ...
When the fight seems lost.
It soothes us in sorrow ...
Which we all must know ...
Makes brighter tomorrow ...
The path we must go.

The battle is half won
Half vanished the foe ...
When in faith it's begun ...
And hearts are aglow.
Be the task great or small ...
Faith makes it worthwhile ...
Makes us heed duty's call ...
And doing it SMILE!

  5. Faith hope and love. And as the bible says- the greater of these is love.

    Without faith, life is meaningless to me.

    Loved this ...you write beautifully - as I've always said.

    Hope you're doing well, Margie. You've been missed greatly!
