A Ten Dollar Bill

Toby was on his way to class when he
accidentally dropped his ten dollar bill.
Mr. Z, a teacher walked down the hallway
and noticed the ten dollars on the floor.
He picked up the bill and placed it
on the desk at the Lost and Found room.
Jimmy walked inside the Lost and Found room
and spotted the ten dollars on the desk.
He grabbed the money and handed it to Joey, 
in exchange for a set of comic books.
Joey trekked over to Billy's house and
handed the ten dollars to his friend for his music CD.
Billy made his way to Jill's house and handed
her the ten dollars to pay off his debt.
Jill headed over to the grocery store and
handed the owner the ten dollars,
in exchange for a basket of apples.
The owner took a trip to Jimmy's house
and handed the young boy ten dollars.
for filling the baskets with apples.
Jimmy raced back to the 
Lost and Found room at school
and placed the ten dollars on the desk.
Toby who lost his money at school,
walked over to the Lost and Found room.
He drew a sigh of relief when 
he found his lost ten dollars on the desk.

Look at this

These following drawings may be homemade,
but there is a message for you.
That every boy and girl can draw,
and you can certainly do it too.
No matter what style you use,
this blog will always display.
Every drawing from a boy or girl,
who sends it this way.
So when you look at every drawing,
and see this great work of art.
Remember this one thing,
it came from their heart.

Love At First Sight

Down by the street, I was walking by.
I see all the people and feel really shy.
I stop and glance and what do I see?
It's a beautiful girl and she's looking at me.
I smile at her and walk on by.
 I start to wonder, if she'll say Hi.
I stand and gaze, at the beauty I see.
I feel the joy, when she comes to me.
I feel my heart, it's pounding really fast.
I start to think, it's my chance at last.
I start to shake, what should I say?
This is my moment, I want her to stay.
"I'm taking a walk, to enjoy the view."
"I'm looking for a friend, how about you?"
She stops to think, for a moment or two.
She asks herself, "what am I going to do?"
I gaze at her, as she starts to talk.
She takes my hand and we go for a walk.
I hold her close and everything is fine.
She gives me a hug and I know she's mine.

Be My Valentine

Each time I think about you,
somehow I know that your love is mine.
A love that brings us together,
and a love that will last forever in time.
Each year at this time, I say this love  
will never leave us apart.
I know this love of ours
will always be special in our heart.
Each time I think about you,
somehow I know that your love is mine.
A love that will always grow,
and a love that will always shine.
Each year at this time.
I say this love will never die.
And now I say to you,
you'll always be my Valentine.

Danny's Only Wish

Buddy peeked through the doorway inside a hospital.
He noticed his friend, Danny weeping beside his bed.
Buddy sat next to him and tried to cheer him up.
"I am afraid," Danny cried. "I have surgery and I might die." 
Buddy grabbed his friend's hand and assured him he would live.
Buddy handed Danny a get well greeting card.
Danny noticed that the whole class signed the card.
Danny reached for a note on top of his dresser.
He handed the note to Buddy.
"Please show this," Danny pleaded, "to the whole class."
Danny wrote a little request, "please pray for me?"
Buddy promised his friend that the whole class will pray for him.
One week later, the school bell rang.
 All the kids rushed to their classrooms.
Room 112 was very quiet.
Buddy and the rest of the class sat and waited for the right moment.
The teacher stood nearby and stared at the clock. 
Moments later, the classroom door opened.
Danny walked slowly to his desk.
The whole class stood up and clapped their hands.
A banner hung overhead with the message,
Danny stood in front of the class,
and tried to hold back the tears.
Danny scanned the whole room and proudly,
thanked the class for all the prayers.

Those Golden Days

I still recall when we were little kids,
playing ball with our friends.
We shared stories about school, 
we rode our bikes till the day had end.
We helped each other in many things,
no matter what we had to do.
Sometimes it was little things,
but it helped us through.
I still recall during our high school days, 
you practiced for the play.
I said those lines holding a book,
while you memorized everything you had to say.
Then you went before a crowd,
and did the best thing you ever had done.
And I stood up and clapped my hands,
I was proud you were number one.
I still recall those beautiful memories,
that no one can take away.
Memories of someone special like you,
that comes along once this way.
Those memories will linger on,
even if we are a thousand miles away.
Those precious moments of me and you,
and all our friends in those golden days.

Thoughts To Ponder (4)

1)    Life is short, Death is sure.
Sin the cause, Jesus the cure.
2)   Are you part of God's construction crew,
or part of Satan's destruction crew.
3)    God's word teaches us,
 to love one another not hate.
4)  As long as we have 
the grace of God,
failure is not final.
5)    Faith is the gate between
 our troubles and God's power.
6)    It's not our job to judge people.
It's our job to love people. 
7)    When we hold back our best efforts,
because our haunting past.
We are letting the past
 decide our future.
8)   No life is hopeless, 
unless Jesus is ruled out.
9)    Too many people put
 their bible on the shelf.
Instead of reading the bible daily
and putting God's words into our hearts.
10)     Other books was published
 to provide information.
The bible was given
 for our transformation.
11)    The bible is like a bank,
it's most helpful when it's opened, 
and we read what God has to say.
12)    Salvation is not something we achieve,
but rather we receive.

My Journey

Lord, help me in my journey,
to find out my calling.
So I know you still love me,
and there's a reason for my living.
Lord, help me in my work,
so I can do well in my task.
I know you go before me
and help me when I ask.
Lord, help me in my mission,
to help those in need.
And to always follow you,
and to pray and believe.
Lord, help me in my burden,
and each trial I must bear.
And give me the strength,
in time of despair. 
Lord, help me to forgive,
an act that you can see.
So when the time comes,
that you will forgive me.

Let's Exercise

So are you ready to get fit?
Do you have time to commit?
Exercise is easy, it can be done.
It's a workout and it's really fun.
If you stumble, now and then.
Just get back up and start again.
Choose one exercise, that suits you.
There is so much that you can do.
Aerobics, ballet and dance too.
Even a treadmill, to name a few.
Go for a jog or get on a bike.
Play some tennis or go on a hike.
You don't have to run a race.
You can go at your own pace.
Stretch a little bit, followed by a swim.
You can use weights to stay trim.
So head to the gym, and kick up your feet.
You can do this, with rhythm and beat.
They tell you, it's healthy and fun.
Whether you walk, jog or even run.
You can exercise, an hour each day.
Bring along a friend and start today.
No more excuses, it's time to commit.
Set yourself a goal and just do it.
