Greater Possibilities

I have posted this before elsewhere.

A friend of mine gave me a copy of a wonderful poem. Hopefully it will inspire some of you as well.

Greater Possibilities

written by
Sheila Norman

Expect nothing not earned
hope for the very best
think of and put others first
and God will handle the rest

Take nothing from anyone
give back even more in return
walk the treacherous extra mile
to cross the bridges you've burned

Live that higher level of life
where you were meant to abide
learn and teach forgiveness
and how to swallow one's pride

You are given but one chance
to prove you are a worthwhile soul
make it your highest priority
and reach your eternal goal

"I would rather live in a continuous state of disappointment than to never see life's greater possibilities." -Sheila NormanIf you are interested in reprinting this poem please contact me and I will put you in touch with the author.

I haven't talked to you in so long! I'm really glad Jim gave me the link to his Blog and from there I found yours. I am so impressed with your insightful entries. They help me so much! I can relate to just about everything you say and just think to myself, 'Man, Dawn is awesome! I need to make more of an effort to be like her.'

Well, I hope you are doing wonderfully. I would really like to get up that way and see you guys again. It's been WAY too long. Just know that I still love you and you are always going to be my friend.

Love you,
Amy Ogilvie

P.S. I have a livejournal account if you’re interested…
