It's Not Over

When troubles and burdens come your way.
It's easy to get down and give up today.
You get discouraged, you made a mistake.
You failed again, with so much at stake.
Unfortunately, times can be tough.
The road you take, can be rough.
If you have a will, and the desire.
You can keep going, with full of fire.
You'll find good times are ahead.
So focus on these words instead.
You're precious life did not end.
Today, you can still try again.

Hey, Little Child

Hey, little child, come take a look.
I am going to buy you, a picture book.
If that book, is something you don't like.
I am going to buy you, a brand new bike.
If your bike ever gets a dent or a flat.
I am going to buy you, a new hat.
If that hat, makes you look funny.

If that horn, is cracked or broke.
I am going to buy you, a new cloak.
If your cloak is ever too small.
I 'll let you buy, anything at all.

Thoughts To Ponder 3

1)    Kind words do not cost much.
  Yet they accomplish much.
2)    You're free to make your own choices.
But you will never be free of the
consequences of your choices.
3)   Good people don't put others down.
They lift them up.
4)    To the world you are one person.
But to one person, you may be the world.
5)      No act of kindness, no matter how small,
is ever wasted.
6)    It's not whether you get knocked down,
it's whether you get up.
7)    Trust in the Lord and do good,
wait patiently for him.
8)   Look unto Jesus, the author and
finisher of our faith.
9)   Rejoice always, pray without ceasing,
give thanks in all circumstances,
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus for you.
10)   It's not what happens to you,
but how you react that matters.
11)    The testing of your faith produces patience.
12) Finally, brethren, whatever things are honest,
mediate on these things.

Best of Friends

This ones for you,
 for all you've done.
After all those years,
 we spent having fun.
Memories of you often come back,
 when we just met.
Many times we shared,
 when the summer was set.
Yesterday may be gone,
 but the memories I'll never forget.

Just you and me helping each other,
 in our friendly ways.
Any time we had problems,
 we helped each other through those days.
How we loved to go out,
 and spend the times with each other.
We never let go of our friendship,
 even if our days could be better.
We helped each other,
 anytime we were sad.
Every day we knew,
 we were always happy and glad.

Someone Who Cares

There is someone who knows you,
and someone who cares.
That someone is Jesus, 
who is always there.
He loves you so much,
and he wants to help you.
So say a prayer,
and he will help you through.
There is someone you can trust,
and someone who understands.
That someone is Jesus,
who offers you a hand.
He promised he will help,  
and he promised he would stay.
All you have to do,
is put your faith in him today.
There is someone who you need,
and someone you never had.
That someone is Jesus,
you can always have.
He knows all your fears,
and he knows what you need.
He wants to help you,
all you have to do is believe.

Play It For Jeannette

You can see it in her smile,
and the letters she would send.
You will know it by her words,
that she is some kind of friend.
You can see it in her eyes,
and in what she would say.
You will know it by her deeds,
that she is beautiful in every way.
You can feel it in your heart,
in the joy she would bring.
She welcomes you with love,
your heart will want to sing.
You can see, she really cares,
in everything she would do.
She would always find a way,
to help someone through.
You can see it every day,
her beauty like a rose.
Touching someone's heart,
wherever she goes.
You can see the help she provides,
her kindness would never end.
The message would be clear,
that she is your friend.

You Can Be The One

One smile can spread cheer.
One hug can touch a heart.
One greeting card can show you care.
One phone call can restore hope.
One visit can bring comfort.
One hand can wipe a tear.
One thoughtful deed can ease a burden.
One joke can bring laughter.
One prayer can be the answer.
One person can make a difference
Could that person be you?
