Author - Unknown +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Always a silent hurt, many a silent tear, but always a beautiful memory of one we loved so dear.
God gave us strength to bear it, and courage to take the blow, but what it meant to lose you ...no one will ever know - Author Unknown - ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ "Grieve not nor speak of me with tears but laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you I love you so twas Heaven here with you."

When I quit this mortal shore And mosey 'round this earth no more, Do not weep and do not sob; I may have found a better job. Don't go and buy a large bouquet For which you'll find it hard to pay, Don't mope around and feel all blue; I may be better off than you. Don't tell the folks I was a Saint Or any old thing that I ain't. If you have jam like that to spread, Please hand it out before I'm dead. If you have roses bless your soul, Just pin one in my buttonhole While I'm alive and well today; Don't wait until I'm gone away. - Mabeel Easle - ------------------------------------------------ NOT MUCH MORE NEEDS TO BE SAID--
LOVE is such a precious thing. It's fragile, and it's rare. It damages so easily, So handle it with care. It's free to those who seek it. There's enough for all to share. The more that LOVE is given out, The more there is to spare - Unknown - ¸.*´¨`*.¸¸.*´¨`*.¸¸.*´¨`*.¸¸.*´¨`*.¸ Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation
THIS MAN SURE HAS A GOOD VIEW OF WHAT'S HAPPENING TO OUR COUNTRY!!!
WE come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance.
WE know Your Word says, "Woe to those who call evil good," but that is exactly what we have done.
WE have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.
WE have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.
WE have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.
WE have "killed our unborn" and called it choice.
WE have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.
WE have neglected to "discipline our children" and called it building self-esteem.
WE have abused power and called it politics.
WE have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.
WE have "polluted the air with profanity" and "pornography and called it "freedom of expression".
WE have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.
Search us GOD and know our hearts today, cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
Please Come back and "rule our nation", be number one 1 in our nation. Amen!!

If you could see your ancestors All standing in a row, Would you be proud of them or not? Or don't you really know?
Some strange discoveries are made In climbing family trees. And some of them, you know, Do not particularly please.
If you could see your ancestors All standing in a row, There might be some of them perhaps You shouldn't care to know.
But here's another question Which requires a different view - If you could meet your ancestors Would they be proud of you? ¸.*´¨`*.¸¸.*´¨`*.¸¸.*´¨`*.¸¸.*´¨`*.¸ The Measure of a Man
Not "How did he die?" But "How did he live?" Not "What did he gain?" But "What did he give?" These are the units to measure the worth of a man, as a man, regardless of birth. Not "What was his station? But "Had he a heart?" And "How did he play his God given part?" Was he ever ready with a word of good cheer, to bring back a smile, to banish a tear?' Not "What was his church?" Nor "What was his creed?" But, "Had he befriended those really in need?" Not "What did the sketch in the newspaper say?" But "How many were sorry when he passed away!"
