A Friend

A Friend Most True

I need to know if you're my true friend,

Will you be by my side until the end?

Can I tell you my secrets deep?

And trust them in your heart you'll keep?

We are neither of us without our flaws,

Can you accept mine as I will yours?

I'll be a shoulder to cry on when you're blue,

Will you be there for me when I need you?

No matter how busy I will make time for you,

If you are busy will you make time for me too?

I will take your hand and comfort your tears,

Will you hold me and soothe my fears?

I will give you joy and many warm smiles,

Can we share that even across many miles?

I will not forget what's important to you,

Will you remember what's important to me too?

With you my most favorite things I'll share,

If only I know do you truly care?

If you can accept me as I do you,

Then I will know you are a friend most true.

An Atlantic walrus plods toward shore after gorging on clams in the shallows.
 Such a big bull may stir up, shell, and suck down thousands of clams a day in summer,
relying on his muzzle full of sensitive whiskers, called vibrissae, to help locate prey.

 Size: Up to 2.5 inches
 Location: Asia
 Status: Declining


Tusks of all lengths suggest a mix of ages among these walruses, part of Svalbard's peak summer count of some 2,600.
By the early 1900s ivory hunters had nearly wiped out Norway's herds.
Protected since 1952, the population is still recovering.

Today, dear God, I come to you humbly and reverently asking that you untie, eliminate and erase all of the not's that have invaded every aspect of my life.
Let these words take on the presence of the Holy Spirit to become living conditions in my life.
As so it is!

Senior Citizens

Senior citizens are constantly being criticized for every conceivable deficiency of the modern world, real or imaginary.  We know we take responsibility for all we have done and do not blame others.

HOWEVER, upon reflection, we would like to point out that it was NOT the senior citizens who took:

The melody out of music,
    The pride out of appearance,
    The courtesy out of driving,
    The romance out of love,
    The commitment out of marriage,
    The responsibility out of parenthood,
    The togetherness out of the family,
    The learning out of education,
    The service out of patriotism,
    The Golden Rule from rulers,
    The nativity scene out of cities,
    The civility out of behavior,
    The refinement out of language,
    The dedication out of employment,
    The prudence

Once in a lifetime

Once in a lifetime
Once in a lifetime You'll meet that special someone Who brings out the best in you Who becomes the meaning your you
You eat, breathe, talk Sing, dance , laugh Dream, smile and live All because of her
Your very life and existence Your reason for being here Becomes clear That is when you know That she is the one for you
And without her Days are just but days And life is but a word So when you find that very one Hold her close And never let her go You'll find yourself living Dancing in the colours of the rain

When I whine

  When I Whine
Today, upon a bus, I saw a girl with golden hair I looked at her and sighed and wished I was as fair.
When suddenly she rose to leave,
I saw her hobble down the aisle.
She had one leg and used a crutch
But as she passed, she passed a smile.
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine
I have 2 legs, the world is mine.

I stopped to buy some candy
The lad who sold it had such charm
I talked with him a while, he seemed so very glad If I were late, it'd do no harm.
And as I left, he said to me,
"I thank you, you've been so kind.
It's nice to talk with folks like you.
You see," he said, "I'm blind."
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
I have 2 eyes, the world is mine. 

Later while walking down the street,
I saw a child with eyes of blue
He stood and watched the others play
He did not know what to do.
I stopped a moment and then I said,
"Why don't you join the others, dear?"
He looked ahead without a word.
And then I knew, he couldn't hear.
Oh, God, fo…

Flooded by Hume Dam in the 1920s, the Murray's riverbanks were once thick
with river red gum trees that captured moisture and helped drive cycles of rainfall.
The skeletons of submerged trees are now visible in a ponded portion of the river's upper reaches,
 exposed by the lowest water levels in decades.

A grand expression of royal power, Hatshepsut's mortuary temple rises against a desert bluff at Deir el Bahri.
Reliefs in the porticoes record the greatest triumphs of her 21-year reign.

Dovekies dive for copepods and nest on rocky slopes.

Rump vegetation and crusty soils dapple the Macquarie Marshes, a 494,000-acre wetland in the Murray-Darling Basin used mainly for wheat growing and cattle grazing.
About 10 percent has been set aside as a protected nature reserve.
Farmers depend on irrigation.
 Environmentalists regard the wetlands as critical to birds and other wildlife.
They're locked in a tug-of-war over what little water still flows into the marshes, after…

The First Parent

The First Parent
(by Bill Cosby)

Whenever your kids are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God's omnipotence did not extend to his kids.

After creating Heaven and Earth, God created Adam and Eve. And the first thing He said to them was: "Don't."

"Don't what?", Adam replied.

"Don't eat the forbidden fruit."

"Forbidden fruit? Really? Where is it?"

"It's over there," said God, wondering why He hadn't stopped after making the elephants.

A few minutes later God saw the kids having a forbidden fruit break and He was angry.

"Didn't I tell you not to eat that fruit?" the First Parent asked.

"Uh huh," Adam replied.

"Then why did you?"

"I dunno," Adam answered.

God's punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own.

Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed. But there is reassurance in this story.

If you h…

Secret Sins

(By Debbie Preuss)

The secret sins I try to hide
In my spirit do abide
Hidden not from God above
As He looks at me with eyes of love  
I try to turn my face away
For I don't really want to obey
This "secret sin" seems so much fun
I stay when I know I should run
I seem to be so firmly entrenched
Accustomed to it's familiar stench
But He draws me out through His love
He never tries to push or shove
He gently shows me the way
Until I choose to Him obey
Then He holds me in forgiveness close
The One who loves me the most
He cleans my spirit where they abide
The secret sins I try to hide
They were hidden not from God above
Now He holds me close in His embrace of love
He saw my sins all along
He's come alongside to make me strong
He's forgiven the past and the future too
I know He'll do the same for you
He understands like no one can
For He's fully God and was fully man
My Father loves me, so to Him I pray
Give me the str…
