A LESSON FROM HISTORY -By Joseph Morris
Everything’s easy after it’s done;
Every battle’s a “cinch” that’s won;
Every problem is clear that’s solved-
The earth was round when it revolved!
But Washington stood amid grave doubt
With enemy forces camped about;
He could not know how he would fare
Till after he’d crossed the Delaware.
Though the river was full of ice
He did not think about it twice,
But started across in the dead of night,
The enemy waiting to open the fight.
Likely feeling pretty blue,
Being human, same as you,
But he was brave amid despair,
And Washington crossed the Delaware!
So when you’re with trouble beset,
And your spirits are soaking wet,
When all the sky with clouds is black,
Don’t lie down upon your back
And look at them. Just do the thing;
Though you are choked, still try to sing.
If times are dark, believe them fair,
And you will cross the Delaware!
Good Tuesday morning to you all.

Great mesage about persistence and faith in the future.
Without the risk there will be no reward. Faith & Belief
We all face “Delawares” in our lives. The key is to focus on the end goal and keep moving forward in spite of the obstacles. It’s the only way to reach the other side. As Nike so elequently puts it…..JUST DO IT!
Great day for a poem like this. Don’t let the rain and clouds get you down. Because great things are on the horizion.
