In your life you've reached a milestone,
by Jane L. Nance
You feel both sad and happy at this time,
Sad at leaving your classmates and home,
Like a ship at sea.
You must stay on an even keel,
Keep your anchor steadfast
In the lord he's real,
Through the storms of life He will guide you,
Only trust him to lead in all that you do,
Yes, there will be disappointments and such,
Like missing out on a scholarship
That you counted on so much.
God knows the heartaches that you bear,
Just remember that you are always in His loving care.
If masterfully you handle pitfalls like these,
This above all, our Lord and Savior you'll please.
