Congrats-Schooling Is All Over
Congrats.. college days have ended
The years that were begun,
Are dimming to a memory
For schooling is all done.
Now you can close that chapter
With satisfied relief,
That the education is now over
And you are at your peak.
All primed up and ready
For the turning of the page,
To begin the rest of your adventure
Suited to your age.
May God bless you as you step out
Into another learning curve,
New doors to open wide
As from graduation you emerge.
Take hold of each new day
With the courage of God's love,
All you'll need is found in Him
He'll always be enough.
Soft Whispers from
Derry's Heart Poems © 2004
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a healthy figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived,
reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone. Remember, if you ever
need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands;
helping yourself, and the other for helping others.

but by a series of small things brought together."

unless our walking is our preaching."
