I seldom think about my limitations, and they never make me sad. Perhaps there is just a touch of yearning at times; but it is vague, like a breeze among flowers. Helen Keller


  
I sometimes wonder why it is that I have an ailment
But I will not come to my Lord to lodge a complaint
 
My lord has made me who I am, you see
Though I sometimes wish that it would not be
Even my very limitations are what create me
 
So I accept the challenge to be strong and persevere
For Jesus knows my needs and he is always near
 
He encourages me with Psalms of aspiration
I awake each morning with wondrous anticipation
 
My ailments are no more than a light load to bear
This is why I look at the future and find great hope there
 
My Master told me there would be challenges and tests
But when this life ends I shall find glorious rest
 
In the city I will enter there will be no restraints
No troubles or sadness and no reason for complaints
 
The land I shall enter will be my final reward I shall walk without limitations and commune with my Lord
Amen

A worthy challenge, indeed. And Helen Keller has many worthy quotes.
