By Bess S. Ayers

When sailing through the storms of doubt, discouragement, or pain,
I shall not fear the lashing wind, nor fury of the rain.

Three anchors hold my little craft; I tested them with care;
There’s one of faith, one of hope, and one of daily prayer.

With these to hold my ship secure; what danger can betide?
I know that I shall reach at last; a harbor safe and wide.

Psalm 1:1-3

Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
