Painting "In His Light" Copyright 1999 Greg Olsen Gallery

Think, Believe, Dream, and Dare

     An eight-year-old boy approached an old man in front of a wishing well, looked up into his eyes, and said: "I understand you're a very wise man. I'd like to know the secret of life."

     The old man looked down at the youngster and replied: "I've thought a lot in my lifetime, and the secret can be summed up in four words.

The first is think.
     Think about the values you wish to live your life by.

The second is believe.
     Believe in yourself based on the thinking you've done about the values you're going to live your life by.

The third is dream.
Dream about the things that can be, based on your belief in yourself and the values you're going to live by.

The last is dare.
     Dare to make your dreams become reality, based on your belief in yourself and your values."

And with that, Walter E. Disney said to the little boy, Think, Believe, Dream, and Dare

     What are the values you have based your belief and dreams on? Has your life turned out to be all your expected it to become? Have you reached that point where you feel "alone" and cry, thinking God is no longer here?

Guess who moved away from whom... it is never too late to return to the place where it all began, that special place where you first accepted the love and salvation in your heart. For God is never further away than the distance from your knees to the floor!
