 A Choice To Carry On!

Welcome To David

By Chris Gallatin

Find your strength.  Search for that smile of yours that makes everything brighter.  ‘Hang in there,’ even though that can be easier said than done.  ‘Have faith.’ 

Don’t give up.  Make a commitment…between your determination, your hopes and your heart…that your sun is going to shine in the sky.  Live your life a day at a time and things will get better by and by. 

Find your way through the days with the light that shines within you.  Leave a smile where there wasn’t one before.  Help a hurt; make it mend.  Find the strength to make things right again. 

Go forward, from one steppingstone to another.  Reach out a little farther.  If you believe you can, then you will make it through.  Listen a little more often to what your heart has to say.  Do the things that are important to you.   

Make today everything you dreamed it could be.  Don’t settle for less; don’t accept what you should not.  Use the precious hours you’ve been given as wisely as you can.  Then do your best and leave the rest to God.
