Be A Friend

Be A Friend

Follow your dreams and chase the stars.Dance with the moon and be who you are.Uncover the veil that prevents you to see.Open your heart to all you can be.

Some days will be happy while others are sad.Hold on to your faith, take the good with the bad.Count, in your life, all the blessings you should.Make sure that your love is well understood.

Be a friend to a stranger who hold out their hand.Show compassion and kindness so they'll understandThat your willing and able to offer them hope.Do all that you're able to assist a friend cope.

When you lift up the spirit of a person in needAnd show that you love them by doing kind deeds,They will never forget how you offered them lightAnd gave ear and attention as they spoke of their plight.

There will not be a day that passes you by,To help make a difference without asking why.Each act of love and compassion we shareWill spread through the world, showing others we care.

Don't quit

Don't Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,When the funds are low and the debts are high,And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,When care is pressing you down a bit,Rest if you must, but don't you quit.Life is queer with its twists and turns,As everyone of us sometimes learns,And many a failure turns aboutWhen he might have won had he stuck it out;Don't give up, though the pace seems slow -You might succeed with another blow.Often the goal is nearer thanIt seems to a faint and faltering man,Often the struggler has given upWhen he might have captured the victor's cup.And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,How close he was to the golden crown.Success is failure turned inside out -The silver tint of the clouds of doubt -And you never can tell how close you are,It may be near when it seems afar;So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.

Foot prints in the sand

Footprints in the Sand

One night a man had a dream. He dreamedhe was walking along the beach with the LORD.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the LORD.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him,he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path ofhis life there was only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened at the verylowest and saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it:
"LORD, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way.But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life,there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me."The LORD replied:
"My son, my precious child,I love you and I would never leave you.During your times of trial and suffering,when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."
