This poem is dedicated to those of you who are involved in school beginnings this year. You may be a student, educator, or staff person. You may be a mom educating at home. May you sense the One who keeps His promises by your side always! ~JanelI Promise! I promise to be with you all day long Your first day of school is blessed by Me I promise to remember your sins no more Your heart is washed as clean as the world around you I promise to give you courage to face new teachers new classmates new tasks and new feelings as you advance beyond yesterday I promise unseen protection bigger than your biggest bully Your Guardian Angel stands tall and proud I promise to hold you up when you feel like breaking You have unending support from Me I promise to restrain you when your enthusiasm flies too high You have My help in any situation I promise to laugh with you You bring Me great delight I promise to satisfy your thirst for learning You know Me as the Great Teacher I promise to stay with you as you leave these doors You are never alone I promise to give you everlasting life Your heart has a Home with Me I promise My unfailing, unflappable, unwavering Love You cannot lose My Love Today is your first day of school You will face many new things My promise is for you and for everyone you meet today Will you tell them I said “I promise”?
