E is for Exercise



So are you ready to get fit?
Do you have the time to commit?
Exercise is easy, it can be done.
It's a work out 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.
Head to the gym and kick up your feet,
You can do it with rhythm and beat.
They tell you, it's healthy and fun,
Whether you walk or you 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.

Lost & Found

Joey was on his way to class when he
accidentally dropped his ten dollar bill.
Mr. Z, the teacher picked up the ten dollars and
 placed it on the desk at the lost and found room.
Billy walked in and spotted the ten dollars.
He grabbed the money and handed the ten
dollars to Randy in exchange for his comic book.
Randy trekked over to Marty's house and handed
his friend ten dollars for the latest comic book.
Marty made his way to Jill's house and 
handed her the ten dollars to pay off his debt.
Jill headed over to the neighbors house and handed the
gentleman ten dollars in exchange for a bucket of apples.
The neighbor took a trip to Billy's house and handed
the young boy ten dollars for picking the apples.
Billy raced back to the lost and found room
and placed the ten dollars back on the desk.
Joey headed over to the lost and found room, 
where he discovered his missing ten dollar bill.
IS IT POSSIBLE,
 ALL TRANSACTIONS ARE LEGIT?
THINK ABOUT IT.

THE FIRST CHRISTMAS


The word came true when the time was right.
When the shepherds saw the beautiful sight.
It was our Savior Jesus who was born,
He came from heaven in the early morn.
It was that night when salvation had begun,
When God had sent his beloved Son.
He came down to save us from our sin,
We could surely see God's love within.
He took our place for our sake,
So that our bondage of sin would break.
So every Christmas, we recall that day,
We proclaim it's Jesus birthday.

Henry bolted out the door and sped past Pete on the way out.
"Hurry, Hurry," Henry cried out. "What is the rush?" Pete asked.

Let's write a book !

"It's time!" Buddy announced, 'let's write a book." 
"This is going to be fun," Pete replied.
"First thing," Buddy advised, "we need an idea."
"I have one," Pete answered,"There is a talent show coming up."
"Fantastic," Buddy said.
"Now we're ready to write," Pete exclaimed.
"Wait a minute," Buddy said.
"If we're going to write a book," Buddy pointed out,
 "we need a great beginning."
"We have to attract the readers attention."
"I know," Pete answered,"a huge crowd of boys and girls
 are lined up for a talent show."
"That's great," Buddy said.
"Okay, let's start writing," Pete declared.
"Wait," Buddy interrupted.
"We cannot write a book without a setting."
Pete scratched his head. "What is a setting?"
"A place where the talent contest is held." Buddy replied.
"I know," Pete said, "it's held at a school gym."
"That's good," Buddy agreed. 
"Now, we're ready," Pete proclaimed.
"Wait," Buddy interrupted.
"We cannot write a book without a character."
"We need to create a character that 
readers will love to read about." 
"Okay, how about, Toby," Pete suggested.
"He's an adventurous young lad," Pete added. 
"And he has high expectations."
"Perfect," Buddy said.
"Let's start writing," Pete declared.
"Wait a minute," Buddy interrupted. 
"We cannot write a book without conflict,"
We need a situation that poses a problem
 for Toby to win the contest."
"I got it!" Pete said excitedly.
"Toby is struggling to find his talent."
"That is a brilliant idea," Buddy said.
"Let's start writing," Pete exclaimed.
"Hold it," Buddy interrupted again.
"We cannot write a book without some action."
"Every story requires some action."
"I know," Pete replied. "Toby tried to juggle three eggs
in the air, but all three eggs crashed to the floor."
"That's it," Buddy replied, "You got a great idea."
"We can start now," Pete proclaimed.
"Wait," Buddy said again.
"We cannot write a book without a climax."
"The readers will enjoy your story 
if you have a great ending," 
"I got it!" Pete replied. "Toby rushed to the stage
with a few minutes to spare."
"He performed his magic trick." Pete explained,
"The crowd stood up and gave him a standing ovation.
Toby won the contest," Pete added.
"That is a great ending," Buddy agreed. 
"Finally," Pete proclaimed, "we can start writing."
Buddy stared at his sheet of paper.
"What's wrong now?" Pete asked.
"I have writer's block," Buddy remarked.
"What is a writer's block?" asked Pete.
"My mind has gone blank," Buddy explained.
"What are we going to do now?" Pete asked.
"I got it," Buddy cheerfully said.
"Let's ask Henry for help."
