that has been there all the while waiting for you,

doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.

You don't need a reason to be happy,
just a choice.

even though we did our best -
and we are afraid.

that God planted in your days?
What have you done with the talents
God bestowed on you?"
