The Turtle RaceI was invited to a turtle raceAbout two weeks ago,And though it began on timeI have yet to go.I thought about it yesterdayAnd twice the day before,But I think I will wait another dayOr maybe even more.I heard that one contestantThought his turtle to be fast,But from the looks of things this farHe seems to be dead last.There were ten turtles entered inAnd settled nicely in the grove,But one turtle had to leave the raceBecause his family had to move.The rest are moving right alongCan't you hear the mad stampede?I know that slow and steady wins the raceAnd one turtle will succeed!Thena

Bless My Child
Father, we trust You
More than our words can say
And love you above all others
We know You understand
The aching hearts of mothers
Who watch their child
Go through hurt, disease and pain
And long so very much
To have them whole again.
I ask You Father to heal
This little one who is so ill
And let them grow up as fine adults
Whose joy is to do Your will.
We ask that Your healing power
To this child You would send
And we will give you all the praise
In Jesus Name

I saw a commercial on TV
That promised to erase those lines
That were showing up on my face
(Although my friends said I looked just fine)
Then I found a crème at the store
That promised to erase 10 years
By just applying it each day
Beginning right below my ears.
My friend brought a free sample of numerous oils
So promising that I got ‘em
That promised to renew my complexion
Making it soft as a baby’s bottom.
The list went on and on that way
With wonderful products to make me
Look younger and younger
Every single day.
To me they all sounded promising
And each impressed me uniquely
But I ordered every single one
And I fear I shall disappear completely!

I will have happy times
My whole life through
But I will never stop
I will celebrate and enjoy
The things I love to do
But I will always wish
You were here to enjoy them too.
I will not always wear a happy face
For at times I will be sad
But I will always smile
When I think of you
And will always love you, Dad.

Someone out there is hurting
And they need a loving touch
They need to know that someone cares
And loves them very much.
Someone out there feels all alone
Not just a bit sad and blue
But someone feels so very depressed
That they don't know what to do.
Someone out there needs a kind word
Or a loving touch upon their brow
And many of us would love to help
But we feel we don't know how.
Someone out there is praying
For a word from God above
That will confirm that He is real
And assure them of His love.
Someone out there needs a friend
And needs a bit of sweet relief
From all the trials they're going through
And needs the comfort of belief.
Someone could be the hand God uses
Or the human that He will send
To help heal the hurting, aching heart
And be the Heaven chosen friend.
Don't say "I'm just one person
There's nothing I can do."
But be a willing vessel
If God chooses to send you.
