Dear God...

I called tonight to talk a little while,
I need a friend who'll listen
to my anxiety and trial...
You see, I can't quite make it
through a day just on my own.
I need your love to guide me,
so I'll never feel alone.

I want to ask you please to keep,
my family safe and sound.
Come and fill their lives with confidence
for whatever fate they are bound.

Give me faith, dear God, to face
each hour throughout the day,
and not to worry over things
I can't change in any way.

I thank you God, for being home
and listening to my call.
For giving me such good advice
When I stumble and fall.
Your number, God, is the only one
that answers every time.
I never get a busy signal,
never had to pay a dime.

So thank you, God,
for listening to my troubles and my sorrow.
Good night God, I love You too,
and I'll call again tomorrow!

 "Five Finger Prayer"

1. Your thumb is nearest to you. So begin your prayers
by praying for those closest to you. They are the easiest
to remember. To pray for our loved ones is, as C.S. Lewis
once said, a "sweet duty"

2. The next finger is the pointing finger. Pray for
those who teach, instruct and heal. This includes
teachers, doctors, and ministers. They need support
and wisdom in pointing others in the right direction.
Keep them in your prayers.

3. The next finger is the tallest finger. It reminds us
of our leaders. Pray for the president, leaders in
business and industry, and administrators. These people
shape our nation and guide public opinion. They need
God's guidance.

4. The fourth finger is our ring finger. Surprising to
many is fact that this is our weakest finger; as any
piano teacher will testify. It should remind us to pray
for those who are weak, in trouble or in pain. They
need your prayers day and night. You cannot pray too
much for them.

5. And lastly comes our little finger; the smallest
finger of all. Which is where we should place ourselves
in relation to God and others. As the Bible says,
"The least shall be the greatest among you." Your
pinkie should remind you to pray for yourself. By the
time you have prayed for the other four groups, your
own needs will be put into proper perspective and you
will be able to pray for yourself more effectively.

God's Will For You and Me

Just to be tender, just to be true,
Just to be glad the whole day through,
Just to be merciful, just to be mild,
Just to be trustful as a child,
Just to be gentle and kind and sweet,
Just to be helpful with willing feet,
Just to be cheery when things go wrong,
Just to drive sadness away with a song.
Whether the hour is dark or bright,
Just to be loyal to God and right,
Just to believe that God knows best,
Just in His promises ever to rest-
Just to let love be our daily key,
That is God's will for you and me.

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come,
thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power,
and the glory, for ever.


To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say.
But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven.
Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through.
God picked me up and hugged me and He said,
I welcome you, it's good to have you back again,
you were missed while you were gone."
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.And when you lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you.... in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years;
Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry: it does relieve the pain;
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too;
That as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain;
Then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life was worthwhile.
Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low;
Just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street and you've got Me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go....from that body to be free.
Remember you're not're coming here to Me

~~~~ Stepping Stones ~~~~

The Lord came to me like a dream one day and asked,
"why do you sorrow?" I answered, "Lord my life is so
full of pain, I can't face one more tomorrow."

The Lord sat down beside me, and gently took my hand.
He said, "Let Me explain to you, and then you'll understand.

Each sorrow is a stepping stone you must surmount
each day, And every stepping stone you climb is
a sorrow that's passed away.

The road of life is a mountainside, with crevices in
which to be caught, But as you struggle on your
way, I, the Rock, will lend support.

Every stepping stone you climb, makes spirit and heart
grow strong. Exercising character and faith, this road
seems painful and long.

The way is paved with stepping stones, to uplift your
heart and soul, Though difficult, they aid your way, to
a City paved with gold.

I know that you are tired, for I too have walked this
way, My sorrows did they multiply, but I cleared
many stones away.

I left My Rock to lift you up, I left behind My story.
To give you strength to make your climb, to that special
place in glory.

And never fear, the Rock is here, you'll never climb this
mountain alone. Surmount life's sorrows, continue on,
for they are but stepping stones.
