who refuse to sit back,
sigh and wish things would change.
They neither complain of their lot
nor passively dream of some
distant ship coming in.
Rather, they visualize in their minds
that they are not quitters;
they will not allow life's circumstances
to push them down and hold them under.
~Charles R. Swindoll~
Your world is as big as you make it.
I know, for I use to abide
In the narrowest nest in a corner,
My wings pressing close to my side.
But I sighted the distant horizon
Where the sky line encircled the sea
And I throbbed with a burning desire
To travel this immensity.
I battered the cordons around me
And cradled my wings on the breeze
Then soared to the uttermost reaches
With rapture, with power, with ease!
~ Georgia Douglas Johnson ~

Set your standards high
You deserve the best.
Think about your destination
But donít worry if you stray
Because the most important thing
Is what youíve learned along the way.
Take all that youíve become
To be all that you can be.
Soar above the clouds
And let your dreams set you free.
~ Jillian K. Hunt ~
just a breeze, touching the green
foliage of a city park,
just a whisper from the soul of a friend.
Just a line of verse clipped from some book.
Inspiration... who can say where it is born,
and why it leaves us? Who can tell the reasons
for its being or not being?
Only this... I can think.
Inspiration comes from the Heart of Heaven
to give the lift of wings,
and the breath of divine music
to those of us who are earthbound.
No Bird Soars Too High
If He Soars With His Own Wings...
