Do you recall when you were small
the story of the hare?
He sarted out at quite a pace
without a single care!

The turtle crawled without a hope
but with a steadfast will.
The rabbit stopped to rest a while
with time he had to kill.

The hare was sleeping peacefuly
when the turtle won the race.
Which shows results are all the count
no matter how fast the pace.

The moral of this story is-
the goal is there for you.
But staying power is required
in everything you do!


 ~*~ Hell is not a place of fire and a devil with a tail and horns.  But a place of torment because the light of God is gone.  To escape this, accept the blood of Jesus Christ! ~*~
