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.
I am going to buy you, a little bunny.
If that bunny, doesn't want to eat.
I am going to buy shoes for your feet.
If the shoes, are tattered or torn.
I am going to buy you, a musical horn.
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?

Friends In Need

Give a smile, give a hand.
Give some love, to a friend.
Give some comfort, give some care.
Give some joy, where it's rare.
Say a prayer, wipe a tear.
Greet someone, with a cheer.
Send a card, go say Hi.
Make a call, give it a try.
Share your time, make it so.
Do some good, wherever you go.
Give a smile, give a hand.
Give some love, to a friend.

Memories Of My Dad

For all the walks, chats and pierogi we made.
For Bingo, Probe and other games we played.
For all the songs we sang and the times we prayed.
Trips to the park, festivals and visits to the zoo.
For the times at the library and Sundays at church too.
For all the special holidays I spent with you.
We watched TV together and played connect four.
Outings at the party and shopping at a store.
We dug up a garden and so much more.

Reading is Fun

Check out the cover, look inside the book.
Turn the page over, take a closer look.
Read the first line, imagine what you find.
You uncover a story, that will dazzle your mind.
You find every page, a story to tell.
All about the characters and places they dwell.
This exciting new tale, begins on page one.
You soon discover, that reading is fun.
Open up a book, read the first page.
The scene will emerge, just like a stage.
You discover another world, inside this book.
The adventure begins, the moment you look.
You come across a story, where a tale is told.
You read every word and watch it unfold.
The excitement continues, beyond page one.
You experience the thrill, that reading is fun.

Seek GOD

My day is filled, with trial and error.
My mind is cluttered, with burdens I bear.
My heart is troubled, when no one cares.
So then my soul, seeks God who's there.
My day goes by, with so much stress.
My mind is looking, for peace and rest.
My heart is weary and hurting too.
So then my soul, calls out to you.
You healed my heart and cleansed my soul.
You gave me strength and made me whole. 
You sent your spirit, to guide me through.
You show your love, in all you do.
My day looks bad and I'm feeling down.
My mind is lost, from pacing around.
My heart beats fast, in face of fear.
So then my soul, seeks God who's near.
The time has come, where it's hard to cope.
My mind is searching, where there is hope.
My heart does ache, for perfect love.
So then my soul, seeks God above.
You healed my heart and cleansed my soul.
You gave me strength and made me whole.
You sent your spirit, to guide me through.
You show your love, in all you do.

Build A Better World

Buddy is so excited, to tell everyone.
He's going to the library, to have some fun.
He discovered a place, where you can always find.
A variety of books, that will captivate your mind.
Buddy is on hand, for the summer read.
He's looking for books, he's going to need.
With so much to choose, he couldn't pick just one.
He picked out twenty and he wasn't done.
Buddy found a awesome book, on a spine tingling tale.
A non-fiction book, about a mammoth whale.
He read a tearful story on a long lost dog.
And a fact filled book, on a slimy little frog.
BUILD A BETTER WORLD, is the summer reading plan.
So visit your local library and sign-up when you can.
Bring along all your friends and take a good look.
There's a great selection, so check out a book.

Class of 2017

We take the time, to reflect on the past.
We cherish the moments, and wish it would last.
Those times we shared, in our work and play.
The many memories we have, of each school day.
From dawn to sunset, it was so much fun.
The joy of success, in the work we've done.
Now we look forward, to the new road we take.
And all the big plans, we have to make.
We reach for our dreams and seek new friends,
We take on challenges, whatever life may send.
With a new set of goals, it's time to proceed.
We give our best and know we'll succeed.

Poem 4 MOMS

She brings you hope,
in place of fear.
She brings you light,
to make it clear.
She shows you love,
with praise and cheers.
She lifts your heart,
and wipes the tears.
She makes you laugh,
when you're feeling sad.
She cares for you,
when life looks bad.
With a loving heart,
and a caring smile.
She makes you feel,
its all worthwhile. 
In times of trouble,
she comes to you.
She calms you down,
and helps you through.
So whatever you need,
you will always find.
You have a mother,
who is helpful and kind.

Second Chance

I could have been your friend,
but I treated you so bad.
Now I am so ashamed,
I was so angry and mad.
I could have been your friend,
if I treated you like one.
I realize, I was wrong,
I'm sorry, for what I have done.
If only, I had another chance,
I would treat you so good.
I would shower you with love,
the way I should.
I could have been your friend,
and helped you too.
I wish, I had a second chance,
I would be nice to you.


Forgiveness doesn't change the past.
But enlarges the future.

Ballad 4 The Lonely People

Who can I call, when I'm feeling down?
Or share the time, when no one is around?
Who can I help, or lend a hand?
Or joke around and be there friend?
I live each day, with no friend around.
I see no one, but the sun go down.
I keep on looking, I keep on smiling.
I never give up, but I keep on trying.
Who do I know, that I could see?
That I could ask, to be with me?
Where do I go, that I could find?
Someone who could be friendly and kind?
I live each day, with no friend around.
I see no one, but the sun go down.
I keep on looking, I keep on smiling,
I never give up, but I keep on trying.

Dear Jesus

When I hear about, all the good you do.
My heart cries out, for you to help me too.
When I read about the message you say.
My mind tells me, that I need to pray.
When I look at myself, there is hope I know.
As long as I believe, you can help me grow.
So I take this time and pray to you now.
I offer my life and make this vow.
I give this life, in service to you.
Just show me the way, in what I can do.

A Ticket To Smile

Life can be so much fun.
If you know how it's done.
You can do this part.
If you open up your heart.
So if you really know how.
You can do this now.
Put a smile on your face.
Every time you go some place.
Share it to everyone you know.
Then your gloomy day will go.
So when your smile comes out.
There can be no doubt.
When you do this one thing.
It will make your heart sing.
Put your fears to rest.
Make you feel the best.

Ballad of Jimmy D

He left his mom and dad, to live on his own.
He found no joy, to be all alone.
He looked for a job and he found something good.
But all he wanted, was a new livelihood.
Jimmy's coming home, Jimmy's coming home.
So say a big hello, to the boy I know.
He left his special friends, without saying goodbye.
He left his lovely home, with tears in his eyes.
He wanted new friends, he could always give a hand.
He wished for those, who would always understand.
Jimmy's coming home, Jimmy's coming home.
So say a big hello, to the boy I know.
He left all his friends, who helped him along the way.
He wished, he said thanks, before he left that day.
He dreams of coming home, to his mom and dad.
And see all the friends, he once proudly had.
Jimmy's coming home, Jimmy's coming home.
So say a big hello, to the boy I know.

A Clever Grocer ?

Charlie owns a grocery store.
He put up a sign on the window.
Tomatoes 25 cents a piece
or three for a dollar.
The first customer walked in and complained.
"It's not fair!" the young lady declared.
"I should get four tomatoes for a dollar."
Charlie apologized and provided the customer
four tomatoes for a dollar.
The second customer stepped inside the store.
He made a big fuss about the sign.
"Your sign can't be right!" he said.
"It should be four tomatoes, instead of three."
Charlie agreed with the old man.
He sold him four tomatoes for a dollar.
Charlie's friend, Ben stood near by.
He heard both customers complaint.
Ben pulled Charlie aside.
"Aren't you forgetting something?" Ben asked.
"You should correct the window sign."
"What mistake?" Charlie asked.
"Before the sign was up," Charlie said.
"Customers bought only one tomato"
