Think Big

A seed was planted
A long time ago
And during the spring
A flower did grow.

Over the years
More flowers grew
Until one day
I saw this view.

The moral is
To always dream
And have a passion
Toward the extreme.

Even if it’s small,
It can grow bigger
With Just one idea
That acts as the trigger.

So explore … discover
This New Year my friends
And sail away
With the trade winds.

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.

    Reblogged this on This Day With God and commented:

    If you start something positive even if it’s small, over time you will build something of beauty. Mark Twain said one time, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore – Dream – Discover.” Have a Happy New Year my friends!
