Dear Mothers, Don't Quit!

Dear Mothers, have you had a hard month?

Do you feel like you are being stretched thin?

Are you discouraged?

I recently stumbled upon a poem that might encourage your heart.

It is one on perseverance and meant to be read in the home: 

Don't Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill
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 quit.

Life is strange with its twist and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don't give up though the pace seems slow-
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a fair and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup,
And he learned too late when night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out-
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar,
So stick to the fight when you're the hardest hit-
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.


I hope it blesses someone here who needed to hear these words. 

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. ~Galations 6:9

I am praying for you!

Do you know the Lord? If not read more HERE!
