Sisters by heart

You are such a very special friend

One I cherish every day

This special card I send to you

With the things I'd like to say.

You are someone I care for

So kind, warm and sweet

I know it was intended

That the two of us would meet

There comes a time in our life

When words just mean so much

More then an expensive gift

For they add that special touch.

Years may come and years may go

I knew right from the start

Friendship made us very closeAnd special sisters by heart. If you received this from a friend, Join us.

Fire fighters

The sky is black; all blue is gone,
And it's just the noon time hour,
Dear God, please stop that wind,
And send us heaven's showers.

Firefighters are alerted,
From all around they come,
With shovels, ropes, and cables
To fight this son-of-a-gun.

Up the hillsides come the crews,
Planes with water overhead,
'Hang on guys, we'll get this sucker,
We don't want nobody dead!'

The fighters pull twelve hour shifts,
Some pull even longer,
It seems with every flame that's quenched,
Another just grows stronger.

Bodies taxed beyond endurance,
Faces blackened - covered with grime
Onward, upward fight those Angels,
Holding back the fire line.

How many hours, days, or weeks,
Before the winds subside?
How much havoc will be wrought?
How many men can stay alive?

The battle wages on and on,
They gain and lose and lose and gain,
Until, as if by miracle,
It seems the fire is contained.

One thanks God upon one's knees,
That those wild winds are stilled,
But how does one tha…

Blue: eye, Polar Bear leaping, Blue feet, Igloo Part 1

The sweeping color of sea and sky, blue is a common thread in nature, seen in the cerulean of a whale shark (pictured here), the indigo of a stormy night, and the cobalt of a peacock's feathers.
Over the centuries, the hue has come to represent calm, cold, mysticism, and sadness.

A thick, swirling school of black fin barracuda plies the blue waters off Sipadan Island, Malaysia.
The fish are formidable predators, but they sometimes gather in groups for protection against sharks higher up on the food chain.

A group of chinstrap penguins lines the edge of an iceberg adrift in Antarctic waters.
Chinstraps are among the most abundant penguins, and some colonies live on floating icebergs.

A polar bear leaps off of sea ice near Devon Island in the Canadian Arctic.
Strong swimmers, polar bears have slightly webbed paws to aid in paddling.

My Quilt

As I faced my Maker at the last judgment, I knelt before the Lord along with all the other souls.
 Before each of us laid our lives like the squares of a quilt in many piles.
An Angel sat before each of us sewing our quilt squares together into a tapestry that is our life.

But as my angel took each piece of cloth off the pile, I noticed how ragged and empty each of my squares was.
They were filled with giant holes. Each square was labeled with a part of my life that had been difficult,
the challenges and temptations I was faced with in everyday life.
I saw hardships that I endured, which were the largest holes of all.

I glanced around me. Nobody else had such squares.
Other than a tiny hole here and there, the other tapestries were filled with rich color and the bright hues of worldly fortune.
I gazed upon my own life and was disheartened.
My angel was sewing the ragged pieces of cloth together, threadbare and empty, like binding air.

Finally the time came when each life was to b…

Money Problems

The minister was preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to, after the worship service, 
ask the congregation to come up with more money than they were expecting for repairs to the church building.  Therefore, he was annoyed to find that the regular organist was sick and a substitute had been brought in at the last minute.   The substitute wanted to know what to play. "Here's a copy of the service," he said impatiently.   "But you'll have to think of something to play after I make the announcement about the finances." During the service, the minister paused and said,
"Brothers and Sisters, we are in great difficulty;
the roof repairs cost twice as much as we expected,
and we need $4,000 more.
Any of you who can pledge $100 or more, please stand up." At that moment, the substitute organist played
"The Star-Spangled Banner."
And that is how the substitute became the regular

Blue: eye, Polar Bear leaping, Blue feet, Igloo Part 2

As startling as a bright-blue eye, a central lagoon peers out (from Ecuador's Galápagos Islands).
The stark, rocky island teems with life at times—the brackish lagoon waters are favored by flamingos.

The massive bulk of Garibaldi Glacier slowly spills into Garibaldi Fjord in Tierra del Fuego—the archipelago at the southern tip of South America.
The aquatic endpoint of such a glacier is known as a terminus.

Though it's better known for shades of red, the Grand Canyon is shrouded in blue as night descends on its foggy, snow-covered walls.
The canyon's north rim is typically closed to vehicles in winter.

Bathed in blue light, a gray wolf peers through the misty landscape of Yellowstone National Park in the U.S. West.
The animals were successfully reintroduced to the park in the mid-1990s after an absence of nearly seven decades.

A homey-looking igloo lights up the stark landscape on a cold night in the Canadian Arctic.
 These temporary shelters were commonly used by indig…
