Faith of The Heart
written by Diane Warren

It's been a long road
Getting from there to here
It's been a long time
But my time is finally near
And I will see my dream come alive at last,
I will touch the sky
And they're not gonna hold me down no more
No, they're not gonna change my mind
Cause I got faith of the heart
I'm going where my heart will take me
I got faith to believe
I can do anything
I got strength of the soul
And no one's gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star
I got faith
Faith of the heart...

I was thinking of Isaac when I came across this poem/song that I had saved. I think it not only speaks of him but of many of the seniors at SAINTS - that includes the cats, dogs, sheep, horses, llamas and I'm sure I would even find the chickens in this song if I watched them long enough. It even speaks of the young uns like Andy, Phoebe, and Ed and hopefully one day it will speak for Suzie and Murphy.



And it speaks for the humans, too....without faith of the heart, without believing we can do anything, without going where our heart takes us, the tragedies that so many Saints animals have experienced in their lives would overwhelm us.
And yet the critters do it so much better than we do, because they are so forgiving and they are better at trusting that tomorrow will bring them what they need.
