Do It Anyway
I recently came across a documentary on this phenomenal woman.
You see I have always known her to be a guardian angel who always devoted her life to the needy and the poor.
I didn’t know her in-depth.
So I took it upon myself to learn more about her.
Each time I read many of her stories or see her work I can’t help but hold back the tears.
Her gentle heart,
Her unwavering faith,
Her fighting spirit,
Rekindles the extinguishing flame in me.
Still in progress following her journey and the more I walk with her, the less I see myself and the more I see a universe.
A prodigal world,
A world filled with suffering and pain,
I see no human race but human erosion,
I see a Lazarus and Jairus terrene,
But not her
She saw love, peace,
She sought light in the dark,
She saw a Romans 14:17-19 world,
She saw potential,
She embraced goodwill.
“People are often unreasonable, illogical
and self centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of
selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some
false friends and some true enemies;
If you are honest and frank, people may
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone
could destroy overnight;
If you find serenity and happiness, they
may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it
may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is
between you and your God;
It was never between you and them anyway.”
She loved anyway.
