~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

It is magnificent to grow old if one keeps young. - Harry Emerson Fosdick

Broken Dreams

As children bring their broken toys
With tears for us to mend,
I brought my broken dreams to God
Because He was my friend.

But then instead of leaving Him
In peace to work alone,
I hung around and tried to help
With ways that were my own.

At last I snatched them back and cried,
"How could you be so slow"
"My child," He said, "What could I do?
You never did let go."
- Author Unknown

By Lauretta P. Burns, Denver, Colorado
My poem "Broken Dreams" has been published by H&L Enterprises as a Poster, by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer in his book Your Sacred Self by the teaching division of the Southern Baptist Association.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

Part 1 of 4 [Nov 8, 16, 23, 30]

Dear God,
Maybe Cain and Abel would not kill each other so much if they had their own rooms. It works with my brother.

Dear God,
If you watch me in church Sunday, I'll show you my new shoes.

Dear God,
Of all the people who worked for you, I like Noah and David the best.

Dear God,
I want to be just like my daddy when I get big, but not with so much hair all over.

Dear God,
I didn't think orange went with purple until I saw the sunset you made on Tuesday. That was cool!

Dear God,
Why is Sunday school on Sunday? I thought it was supposed to be our day of rest.
Tom L.

Dear God,
Please send me a pony. I never asked for anything before, You can look it up.

Dear God,
If You give me a genie lamp like Aladdin, I will give you anything you want except my money or my chess set.

When my son was three years old I had come home from work and decided to lay down a few minutes. He was anxious to play. He was saying mommy, mommy and I just pretended I was asleep. After a few times he finally came over to me and opened one of my eyes and said "Mommy I know your in there" - Jennifer

In this last column Edison entered the word: "Everything."
