    Poem of the Week for: 05/21/2019 - 05/27/2019

    Poet Patricia L. Cisco reminds us of the brevity of life in this poem. No matter how much time we have on this earth, it is but a speck compared to the length of eternity. We have all been given a gift of time, no matter how long or short that is. We all have the same 24 hours in a day, and how we use that precious times makes all the difference in the quality of life we experience. Although there are tough moments in life, everything is temporary. The struggles will eventually fade away. Patricia reminds us to enjoy life, soak up the small moments, those simple pleasures of life. How has this poem touched your heart? What will you step out and do to make the most of your life? We'd love for you to leave a comment and share it with us.
