I CAN, I CAN, I KNOW I CAN!

Many ask why I love trains and why I preach about being on the right track. Many years ago I fell in love with the story of “The Little Engine That Could.” The Little Engine was asked to pull a heavy load up a big hill. As he started, he began to say, “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.” As he got near the top of the hill, he had to pull very hard. He continued to say, “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.” Finally, he went over the hill and began to say, “I thought I could, I thought I could.” He did it!

I copied the words of the train for my life and my ministry. “I can… I can… I can… I know I can!” The title of my articles is “The Deaf Can.” Like The Little Engine That Could, I have learned to keep going, and going, and going no matter what happens. I can, and so can you! When you feel you can’t, sign, “I can… I can… I know I can! Keep going, and going, and going, and going and stay on track!

* “The Little Engine That Could,” 1920, but the story is much older.
