Gracefully she wends her way

Keen to start each new day

Joy in the journey at last is hers

A friendly word here and there

A supporting hand to show she cares

Obstacles dissolve beneath her focused stare

New life springs up

Compassionately nurtured

Projects once so slow

Leap forward as they gather momentum

The finish line at last in sight

She closes the gap

At last it’s done

She’s conquered

“Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep”. No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:35-39 (NLT)
