Sittin' Under the Oak Tree 6-12-18

After all these years, you know that Helen Steiner Rice is my favorite author of all times. I love everything that she writes, but poetry is my favorite. One of my dearest friends, Barbara Oslin from Arkansas, watches for her books in re-sale book stores and snatches them up for me. She sent me several books for Christmas. I was over-joyed, to say the least. Barb, I love you, and am sharing a poem from one of the last books you blessed me with. Hugs and prayers always coming your way! You and your precious B. Owen have been such blessings to J.D. and me, and the books bless me more than I can say. May God keep you ever-so-close in His Care. Love you!

Climb ?Til Your Dream Comes True

Helen Steiner Rice

Often your tasks will be many,

And more than you think you can do?.

Often the road will be rugged

And the hills insurmountable, too?.

But always remember, the hills ahead

Are never as steep as they seem?.

And with Faith in your heart start upward

And climb ?til you reach your dream?.

For nothing in life that is worthy,

Is ever too hard to achieve?.

If you have the courage to try it

And you have the faith to believe?.

For faith is a force that is greater

Than knowledge or power or skill?.

And many defeats turn to triumph

If you trust in God?s wisdom and will?.

For faith is a mover of mountains

There?s nothing that God cannot do?.

So start out today with Faith in your heart

And ?Climb ?Til Your Dreams Come True!....
