Inspirational Message - Jessie Belle Rittenhouse
“I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store;
For Life is just an employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial's hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have paid.”
Hope to see you tomorrow evening on our College Bound Poway Finale Program at 5:00pm (PST) on the College Bound Programs Facebook Page
Stay safe out there and God bless!
