Pay the Price


For anything

worth having

one must

pay the price;

and the price

is always work,

patience, love,



~ John Burroughs


Unfortunately we cannot have it all

just by saying the magic words,

clicking our heels together,

rubbing the genie’s lamp

or by the snapping of our fingers.

Today, do the next right thing, know that

all prayers are answered in God’s time,

and love is the key to all of life’s dreams.

Today, know that what you give of yourself

is the price one pays for happiness.

Life is getting what you pay for.

Life is living and loving in the here and now.
