Reflection.

The poem in the picture (see below) was read out as part of the daily reflection at the end of the day.  It encompasses the values of Saphara.

Yes your one life matters.

There has never been and never will be another you.

That means the bravest thing you can do is be who you already are.

Because it’s safer to be like someone else, it’s easier to hide.

It’s simple to say “I’m not good enough” and walk away.

BUT…

We need you friend…

 

WE NEED YOUR GIFTS 

WE NEED YOUR STRENGTH

WE NEED YOUR SMILE

 

When you are who you were created to be,

you become a mirror of the heart of the One who made you.

The enemy of your soul will try to tell you to change who you are, 

because he would love to interfere with that reflection.

Say “No” my friend…

 

NO TO COMPARING

NO TO COMPETING

NO TO COPYING

 

Instead open your heart, spread out your wings,

lift up your head and live with divine confidence.

You have much to offer.

You are one–of–a–kind original.

No one can ever be better than you at being you.

Say “yes” my friend…

 

YES TO BOLDNESS

YES TO BEAUTY

YES TO BEING WHO GOD MADE YOU

 

Say that “Yes” with all your heart, for all your life.

Speak it with everything you do and all that you become.

Because one of the very best ways to change the world

is by refusing to change who God created you to be!
