Deep-reasoning faith is a strong cornerstone
Around which those who walk with steady feet,
Because they do not seek the way alone,
Build walls to form a welcoming retreat,
It keeps undimmed the precious altar light
Called Life, and offers peace when, stumblingly,
Come crying, “Sanctuary” from dark night
Meek souls, to kneel" before Infinity.
This humble work, well done, is softly blessed,
For simple 'beauty needs no windswept spire
Nor nave nor transept of cathedral dressed
In majesty: with worshippers a choir,
Transmuted into music it will rise
Forever through God’s fastness of the skies.

If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight.
If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy.
If a child lives with shame, he learns to feel guilty. If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement he learns to be confident.
If a child lives with praise, he learns to appreciate.
If a child lives with fairness, he learns justice.
If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith.
If a child lives with approval, he learns to like himself.
If a child lives with acceptance, he learns to love.
I hope you are having a great summer!!
