daily encouragement written by paul

hot sun made gentle
oasis in working grind
umbrella of green


My son (daughter): May you take pride in difficulties, instead of complaining or letting them slow you overmuch. God made open fields to be worked just as surely as he made lovely deep shade under which to drowse and rest. Take each in its right turn as you set your eyes on objectives and lay your plans. May your eagerness to work and rest both be admired, and your zeal for life increase to abundance.
