" Time is so precious-do not waste any of it living for yourself, live for others "

Good Morning.

This poem below by Helen Steiner Rice was sent to me by my friend John M. It seems to be what I need to read this over and over, to me it explains so many things that I have wondered about in the past. Thanks John. DAD

A Bend in the Road

When we feel we have nothing left to give
And we are sure that the 'Song has ended'
When our day seems over and the shadows fall
And the darkness of night has descended.

Where can we go to find the strength
To valiantly keep on trying -
Where can we find the hand that will dry
The tears that the heart is crying?

There's but one place to go and that is to God
And dropping all pretence and pride -
We can pour out our problems without restraint
And gain strength with Him at our side.

And together we stand at life's crossroads
And view what we think is the end -
But God has a much bigger vision
And He tells us 'It's only a bend.'

'For the road goes on and is smoother
And the 'pause in the song' is a 'rest' -
And the part that's unsung and unfinished
Is the sweetest and richest and best.

So rest and relax and grow stronger
Let go and let God share your load -
-Your work is not finished or ended
You've just come to 'A Bend in the Road.'
by Helen Steiner Rice

I am in need of a cup of that Starbucks Sumatra x bold coffee right now, and also I always go look at Oreo. so while the coffee is perking I am going to look in on him at Sara's Dog Training blog. I don't worry about Oreo because I know with out any doubts that Sara is watching over him. Thanks Sara. DAD

Good Morning DAD...

I visited your habitat on CAM #3 this morning, thinking I might see you working out there. I was probably too late because the feeders were full and birds and squirrels were enjoying themselves.

Helen Steiner Rice's A Bend In The Road is a lovely inspirational poem. Hallmark cards uses her poems on some of their cards. They also capture my attention and I stop to read a few. Did you know April is poetry month? will post a new poem every day. You can see their video at

Hope you are enjoying your Friday. ..Sara's Mom

Hi Dad,I have always liked Helen Steiner Rice's poems.
I was surprised that we had frost last night. The last two days have been in the 60's. Several day have been in the 80's.There is supposed to be several days of rain. Some strong storms at times. I hope since it has cooled down the storms won't be as bad.
You and Mary have a nice weekend along with Prince. Helen
