Some will look out at the ocean
but never set foot past the shore,
While others set sail and never look back
and go where no man’s gone before.Some people look at a mountain
and the fear of it shadows their mind,
While others look up and chart out their course
as slowly, they start their long climb.
Some people hear of a battle
and walk the first road of retreat,
While others will rush to find the front line
and never give thought of defeat.
Everyone looks in a mirror
and stares at the core of their soul.
We all have the choice to get lost in fear,
or gather the faith to let go.
Anything’s possible if you believe,
anything’s possible and can be seen,
Once you get past the things in your heart
that cloud what is good and true.
Anything’s possible if you have faith.
Just keep your head up and stay in the race.
Others before have known this is true,
And now it’s time for you to know
Anything’s possible, too….

About This Blog
Ever since the disciples on the Road to Emmaus, the hearts of believers have caught fire. Hearts on Fire includes words and images intended to spark inspiration, thought, wonder, laughter and prayer. Please feel free to share with me what has inspired you in your spiritual journey. It may show up on this blog.
I am a firm believer in the longstanding Catholic belief that "truth is where you find it," and that all things good come from God. From time to time there will be materials from other faith traditions.
