The poster on the hospital chapel wall, the poem from Mother Teresa, was recently recreated by Martina McBride. This song, or the prayer by Mother Teresa, seems so fitting in a world of continuously squashed hope here in Kenya. And such an encouraging reminder to keep going, to keep believing in God’s goodness despite…despite whatever, the hundred and one whatevers. I think the lyrics speak to every person, at some time or another. There’s a reason it’s on my iPod.

You can spend your whole life building something from nothing

One storm can blow it all away, build it anyway

You can chase a dream that seems so out of reach

And you know it might not ever come your way

Dream it anyway

This world’s gone crazy and it’s hard to believe that tomorrow will be better than today

Believe it anyway

You can love someone with all your heart, for all the right reasons

And in a moment they can choose to walk away, love them anyway.

You can pour whole life singing

A song that you believe in

Then tomorrow they’ll forget they ever sang, sing it anyway

God is great, but sometime life ain’t good

And when I pray, it doesn’t always turn out like it should

But I do it anyway.
