Growing Courage


Plant the seed of courage
tend to it with care
so it will be ready when you need it
anytime, anywhere.

We are not born with a courage gene
each one having his own supply.
So where does courage come from?
Why do some seem to have
more than others?

For me, courage is strongly
connected to faith that I am not alone
yet I must do my part, too.
Courage is also fed by integrity
justice, truth and most of all love.

I am a woman of great courage
because our Creator
is by my side
and you…have you discovered
your Source of courage?
