December 2012, Poem of the Month

Be encouraged as you go throughout the remainder of this year. Have a safe and blessed holiday season. From my family to yours, Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
Coach Todd Bates

“Ignore My Complaints”

Gotta do the duty with no grief,
And take the beauties with the beasts.
When adversity shows its ugly face,
The task is…grasp it; don’t just rub…EMBRACE.

Why is the grass not green and why do I aim low?
Waiting on my wings and where is my rainbow?

Stories of bright lights and stars sell so well,
But in real life the scars tell the tale.
Lord give me vision, wisdom, and don’t let me faint.
You gripped me and equipped me…so ignore my complaints.
