A Poem of Hope

Poet: , 2012

When life is getting you down, and you need a little hope.
Look deep down inside yourself, and you'll find the way to cope.

When life is getting you down, and you need a little love.
Go to the person whom you are the closest, as the rest they are above.

When life is getting you down, and all you need is a laugh.
Find the friend that makes you smile, they may even be your staff.

When life is getting you down, dDon't allow it so.
Change the way you think of life, and life will be better, you know.

When life is getting you down, take time to pray
Don't allow yourself to frown God will help you see the blessings of the day.


As You Travel Through Life

Poet Unknown (Thanks to Kim for submitting)

As you travel through life there are always those times
When decisions just have to be made,
When the choices are hard, and solutions seem scarce,
And the rain seems to soak your parade.

There are some situations where all you can do
Is simply let go and move on,
Gather your courage and choose a direction
That carries you toward a new dawn.

So pack up your troubles and take a step forward -
The process of change can be tough,
But think about all the excitement ahead

There might be adventures you never imagined
Just waiting around the next bend,
And wishes and dreams just about to come true
In ways you can't yet comprehend!

Perhaps you'll find friendships
that spring from new things
As you challenge your status quo,
And learn there are so many options in life,

Perhaps you'll go places you never expected
And see things that you've never seen,
Or travel to fabulous, faraway worlds
And wonderful spots in between!

Perhaps you'll find warmth and affection and caring
And somebody special who's there
To help you stay cantered and listen with interest
To stories and feelings you share.

Perhaps you'll find comfort in knowing your friends
Are supportive of all that you do,
And believe that whatever decisions you make,
They'll be the right choices for you.

So keep putting one foot in front of the other,
And taking your life day by day...
There's a brighter tomorrow that's just down the road -
Don't look back! You're not going that way!



Life is a

by Catherine Pulsifer, 2012


Life is an opportunity, seize the day, live each day to the fullest.
Life is not a project, but a journey to be enjoyed.

Life is a gift, accept it, enjoy it, and be happy with it.
Life is a challenge, but challenges can always be overcome.

Life is to be lived, not to be dreamed.
Life is a wonder, if you sit back and be thankful.

Life is a decision each of us makes, to be happy or sad.
Life is a time for new beginnings and endings.

Life is a balance, take time for play not just work.
Life is a joy for those who are optimistic.

Life is a bundle of possibilities if you just look for them.
Life is a meant to do, not to regret.
Life is no bed of roses but life is what you make it.


"Whoever falls from God's right hand is caught into his left."
Edwin Markham

Quotes about God


Life Is No Bed of Roses
Poet: John McLeod, 2003

Life is no bed of roses
For roses have thorns, you see,
But handling with care and balance
Will protect from injury.

All gardens have seasons of beauty
Where the flowers of our living grow
With colours and shapes aplenty
Sweet fragrance to bestow.

Life's flowers need careful tending
For all life needs sun and rain,
And Love and Faith unending
For Hope to flower again!



"Hope is to believe."
Catherine Pulsifer
