Random Acts of Kindness Day

February 17th is Random Acts of Kindness Day

It’s the day we celebrate things done in a kind way

It doesn’t take much to spread kindness around

Smile at someone and turn their frown upside down

Offering a kind word or a nice gesture

Can help make someone’s life a little fresher

So do something right and not something wrong

And show some kindness all day long

It not only makes others feel a little better

But the feeling returns to you in good measure

February 17th is a great time to start

But don’t stop there, let’s all do our part

Do random acts of kindness throughout the year

And cause everyone to have a little cheer

Jesus Healing Pinterest.com

Does Jesus Still Heal Today

The question is does Jesus still heal today

Yes my friend He heals in many ways

There are countless times people have been healed

Sometimes the miraculous healing is revealed

There are times when Jesus does it himself

Other times he enlist a doctors help

We often think it is taking too long

Jesus will heal you Just hold on

Sometimes instructions have to be followed

So in disbelief please don’t wallow

Trust in the Lord with all of your might

And whatever you do don’t give up the fight

I Remember

I remember

I remember in fall swinging from a swing on a tree

I remember rolling around in the piles of leaves

I remember riding my bike with the wind in my face

I remember pretending I was deep in outer space

I remember playing during recess at school

I remember being on the merry-go-round acting like a fool

I remember playing with my friends until the bell would ring

I remember thinking recess was my favorite thing

I remember in winter when the snow would fall

I remember I would go outside and have a ball

I remember staying out for as long as I can

I remember throwing snow balls and building a snow man

I remember in spring the flowers would bloom

I remember I would cut the grass and clean my room

I remember school letting out for summer break

I remember going with my parents to the lake

Happy Birthday Laura

Laura

You are a survivor yes it’s so very true

And so we celebrate this day with you

As we honor you on the day of your birth

We share some words of your great worth

You head up the company’s marketing campaigns

So our joy for you we can hardly contain

With you being a faithful student of fine art

We paint these birthday wishes upon your heart

Perhaps the words that means the most

Come from the Lord Jesus the Lord of host

You are my child, I am your Lord

And I will love you forevermore

From Everyone who loves you

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Pinterest.com

Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

This day we honor Dr. Martin Luther King

His words of wisdom he did bring

He was a great leader of his time

With inspiration that can be used anytime

Equality for all is what he stood for

It didn’t matter if they were rich or poor

Not to be judged by the color of our skin

Was the dream he had deep from within

“The time is always right to do what is right”

Are words he said to win the fight

Against injustice from all around

And put us all on equal ground

When Faced With a Dreaded Liver Disease

When faced with a dreaded liver disease

The first thing he did was fall to his knees

God worked miracles throughout the process

And brought him through, to a major success

When told about his condition, he was placed on a list

To receive another liver where the old one exist

It only took half the time it normally takes

God was working make no mistake

With the care and help from a fantastic staff

He was able to joke and laugh

Five days after the surgery took place

He was released to go home before Christmas day

With family and friends all around

He continues to gain miraculous ground

He now has a new lease on life

And it’s all because of Jesus Christ

Big Mouth Bass Pinterest.com

I Love Going To My Favorite Fishing Hole

I love going down to my favorite fishing hole

Where I can fish for hours with my fishing pole

With my rod and reel close at hand

I think how great the fish will cook in the pan

As I sit by the lake to relax and to reflect

When all of a sudden a twitch I detect

I reach for my rod and reel and hold on tight

As this big mouth bass puts up a fight

When at last the battle is done

The fish in hand this one I’ve won

Jesus knocking at the door Pinterest.com

There's Someone Knocking At Your Heart's Door

There is someone knocking at your heart’s door

His name is Jesus and He wants to love you forevermore

If you will allow Him the pleasure of coming in

He will never leave you and always be a friend

He wants to guide and lead you down life’s path

And keep you safe from all of the coming wrath

So take some time to get to know Him

And open up the door wide and let Him in

Making this decision you’ll never regret

Ask Him in now it’s something you won’t forget

Nativity Scene on Pinterest.com

It Happened Long Ago On One Silent Night

It happened long ago on one silent night,

when the heavens displayed a star so bright.

It outshined all of the others by far,

Because it was a very special star.

It ushered in our glorious Savior’s birth,

the best gift in the entire earth.

With livestock standing all around,

the silence was broken with the sound.

Of angel’s singing Glory to God in the highest,

as an event took place that was the finest.

Jesus Christ finally came to us all,

that faithful night that we now recall.

Riding Makes Me Feel Like I Win


Riding makes me feel like I win

As my hair is blown back by the wind

The fresh air coming past my face

It’s easy for me to keep up the pace

Listening to the engine run

I think to myself this is the most fun

I count the center lines when they go by

I feel the freedom of the eagle in the sky

Just riding my bike I know I’m in my realm

the captain of the road with my hands on the helm

We Celebrate The Day of Your Birth


Today we celebrate the day of your birth

Let it be told you are of great worth

Just to let you know that God is proud

Of your ability to teach to a crowd

You are loved by Him and by us all

Giving us the word of God, you stand tall

A fisher of men, you can’t be matched

God loves you more with every catch

As you sail along throughout this day

We want to wish you Happy Birthday!

You Caress Me With Your Gentle Breeze

You caress me with Your gentle breeze

as it passes by ever so softly.

Your glowing sun warms my face

as it shines on me from deep in space.

Gazing upon Your autumn trees

I see the beauty of Your colorful leaves.

Listening, I hear the wonderful sound

of Your harmonious birds all around.

With You Lord Jesus I am so amazed

You fill my senses through all of my days.

Your awesome creation is so glorious

And to think, You do it all for us.

Through it all there’s one thing I’m sure

You love us Lord and we are Yours.

Gently floating on top of a pond

My darling, your heart I will keep
