Builders










To help someone?
Is that our aim in life?
To help another find his peace

and brave his daily strive?
To find the kinks which others make,
And smooth the paths which they must take,
And just help along with a singing song—
Could that my mission be?
Perhaps ‘tis so…
To walk beside a Builder,
yet not the Builder be.
Tis thus, then I shall gladly go.
(1927)

Mom wrote this in her College composition book at Loretta Heights. It shows the young adult’s searching for clues to there own identity and direction. Here she weighs the purpose of her life as being that of a helper, perhaps even help by cheering up “with a Singing song.” I’m guessing the word” Builder,” since it is capitalized, refers to God, the Creator and Maker, and her wish is to “walk beside” him in her journey through life. As Leretta Heights College is in Denver, I'm sure she sought inspiration and guidance about her future through the natural beauties surrounding her in the mountains of Colorado, as well as through prayer and her trust in the "Builder" of all things, including mountain streams, waterfalls and our own pathway to the future.
