Courage for Another Day

I will try again tomorrow.

Today was long.

My gentle voice came too late.

My sighs came too fast.

I will try again tomorrow.

The courage of a mother

young or old

Giving of herself for love

Giving of herself for Him

Him who gave these children to her

Whether from birth

Or later

Whether hers together

Or alone

I will try again tomorrow

To finish the Lego game

To read the next chapter

in Anne of Green Gables

To have special time with every one of them.

For that is the true joy.

When the courage opens the door

To hope, faith, and love,

and one more round of Legos.

I will try again tomorrow.

"This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9

May you have courage in your MOMents today!
