    YOUR DREAMS

    Follow your dreams
    Let them take you away
    Let them guide and enlighten you
    Each step of the way

    Embrace them, cherish them
    And watch them grow
    Work through life's mysteries,
    Ebb and flow

    Think of your dreams often
    And what you must do
    So that every one of them
    Will come true

    Focus on your dream
    And not the things in your way
    And your load will be lighter
    Than it was yesterday

    Want to win, prepare to win,
    Expect to win too,
    Don't let the adversity
    Get the best of you

    If you plan your work
    And work your plan
    Your dreams will come true
    Time and again

    Believe in the magic,
    Don't wish it away
    Sacrifice for your dreams
    Each and every day

    Dreams come true
    For those who follow through!

    I've been saying the latter part of the message frequently for many years, since my offspring were children and they're now in their high 30s. Recently, when the efforts at another website helped keep a new house, not quite complete by deadline, from being demolished as penalty. When I said the latter part, another pastor spoke approvingly, saying that he has tried for years to live by that credo.

    "Since you have a choice to think a thought, always think a positive thought. Think BIG about everything and truly believe that you will achieve what you have thought about. The human brain has tremendous power to achieve anything it believes. The best way to program your subconscious mind is to repeat a BIG thought many times a day. It will come true once the subconscious mind believes it 100 percent. So, always think BIG and take action NOW."
