My sweet mother wrote and sent me a beautiful piece relating the rare faith principles to the wonders of a dream catcher. Enjoy:
I may not feel greatly gifted.
But as chaff in my life is thoroughly sifted,
I will rivet my mind and focus my time, as each step has been listed.
Providence proves, with the goal-thought set free, it does and will grow if only assisted.
Talent will come with what is defined, and realized with what is sought,
Unceasing effort will be refined; it will be such, but it’s always hard fought.
To complete, takes faith that what is needed will surely be brought.
And with these things, the ‘dream catcher’s web’, has freed the good thought.
And what is this dream catcher’s web? A filter for your mind!
With faith, with determination, what you allowed, you will find.
With effort unmeasured and talent refined,
You goal has been won, as it was defined!
