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

You'll be surprised how it brightens you day

You'll be a kinder person in every way

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

Happy New Year 2019

The 2018 year has finally left us

And the 2019 is unfolding before us

We take the time to reflect the past

While hoping the future is unsurpassed


We mourned the tragedy of the Parkland Shooting

And rejoiced at Harry and Megan’s royal wedding

Black Panther was the top at the box office

While others had to cut their losses


As you remember your favorite song

and how you used to sing it all fay long

The waiting is over the future is here

So let’s boldly go into the new year

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.

Happy Birthday Jesus It's All For You

Happy birthday Jesus it’s all for You

Everything You’ve done and are going to do

You’re coming back one great and faithful day

To show the world You are the only way


On that awesome day the saints will cheer

the rest of the world will tremble with fear

so to be sure you’re on the winning side

Ask Jesus Christ to come inside


So do the best thing you possibly can

and ask the Lord Jesus Christ to come in

When you ask Jesus into your heart

He promises to never part

Santa soon will be on his way

Santa soon will be on his way

Riding in that faithful sleigh

He’s bringing lots of gifts and toys

For all the wonderful girls and boys


The reindeer are getting ready

To make the trip oh so steady

They’ll be speeding all through the night

As they travel at the speed of light


On Christmas morn’ the kids will run to see

All of the presents Santa left under the tree

So off to bed the time is near

Santa is coming can’t you hear

The Time For Santa Is Drawing Near

The time for Santa is drawing near

Your children will soon be filled with cheer

With their precious faces all a glow

They’ll open their presents all in a row


If you have no gifts under the tree

The love you have will still run deep

So hug them all one by one

And come to realize you still have won

Soon It Will Be The Day Of Christmas

Soon it will be the day of Christmas

The time we celebrate a time of giving

As we take a break from all of the business

We can just set back and enjoy the living


The food we prepare will be so delicious

And soon we’ll start a new year’s beginning

Your family time is ever so precious

So have a life that is totally fulfilling

And have a very Merry Christmas
