Happy November to you! Please take a moment to read the Poem of the Month “Leaping Giants”. Be encouraged no matter what your “Giant” may be in life! You can accomplish ALL things by faith!

“Leaping Giants” 10-28-08

There was a chink in my armor,
Character and discipline were the common links to my honor,
A couple of inches and I was a goner,
I’m so glad I had the Lord in my corner.

The giant was huge but he underestimated my leap,
I’m at my best in the face of defeat.

Although I’m well trained I do nothing on my own,
When I am weak I rely on the Lord to make me strong,

In time you will find that all giants are obstacles,
But you can do the unthinkable because through the Lord anything is possible.
