Relay for Life

Relay for Life 2013Relay for Life provides optimism
for difficult times through activism.
Changing the unbearable
into what is more endurable.

It brings light into the dark
to take away the question mark.
Giving plans to overcome the fear,
make burdens lighter, and provide good cheer.

Giving participants a chance to work as one;
helping one another until the disease is done.
Working together within a community
to find a cure and ease anxiety.

New medications give hope; a spouse adds love,
a family gives support, and there is help from above.
There are times when the battle is not won
But it still means a ton.

Because of the good things
like hope and unity which Relay brings.
Fighting against a malady
through this great charity.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
