Saint Quote of the Day: Saint Polycarp of Smyrna

Let us, therefore, forsake the vanity of the crowd and their false teachings, and turn back to the word delivered to us from the beginning.

Saint Polycarp of Smyrna



Saint Polycarp of Smyrna's patronage: Against dysentery; against earache.



Giving and Receiving

I can not receive
what has not been given.
I can not give
what I refuse to receive.
Both giving and receiving
must exist
for us to know love.

“All worthwhile journeys have big obstacles. It’s the way of the world. The rewards go to those who can push through those trying moments and still manage to keep a smile on their face.”

I’m Cat Angry

I think I caught
an attitude
is kinda’ like the flu
everyone’s passing it
careful it doesn’t catch you

DON'T QUIT



When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,

And you want to smile but you have to sigh,

When care is pressing you down a bit,

Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.


Life is queer with its twists and turns,

As every one of us sometimes learns,

And many a failure turns about

When we might have won had we stuck it out.

Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,

You may succeed with another blow.


Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faltering man.

Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the winner’s cup.

And he learned too late when the night slipped down

How close he was to the golden crown.


Success is failure turned inside out,

The silver lining of the clouds of doubt

And you can never tell how close you are –

It may be near when it seems afar.

So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit,

It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit.


For we know the Father above looks down,

He sees our struggles and holds the crown.

He knows the way though it’s rough and drear,

He will give strength so we need not fear.


He offers to you the refreshing cup
Of the water of life; then in faith look up.

Continue on ‘til the crown is won

Which he will give when our work is done!
