It Just Takes One

It just takes one to stand their ground,

determined to do right,

and ripples spread throughout the pond

in waves of  white-capped light.

As breakers swell, and furrows fold,

the undulating tide

will mark the places where the brave

laid comfort-zones aside.


What are you doing to make your world a better place?  It just takes one…

Stand Your Ground!

Stand your ground!

Don’t let the rattling chains

and moans and wails

intimidate your upright stance;

you have every right to be here,

every right to be




If they all jump off a bridge,

how will you safeguard your foothold?

May the truth of Whose you are

ground you,

root you in hope,

provide backbone to your


turn tears to triumph!
