TO START THE DAY WITH LOVE


The love within my heart is guiding me, and I shall love myself the whole day through. Lord, Help me out with this, now hear my plea, and Thank You now, for everything You'll do! Please, help me love this great big universe! And love my neighbors, family, and foes, and Sweet Marie, for better And fer worse; I can, because, through me, Your loving flows. So, Lord, let's stick together, Every day, through all the ups and downs affecting me. For help with loving, here and now, I pray; please, Help me always very loving Be!”

PLEASE CARE!


If Your ability ta care 's impaired, and you can't feel another person's pain, it just might be because you're kinda scared, too blind ta see what Is ta others plain. So, please, don't be afraid to feel their hurt; compassion helps ya be both kind and smart. For any chance ta help, please, stay alert, and show ya have an understanding heart.”

REPENTING

"I'm sorry I have been so faithless, Lord. Please, humble me, so I'll more often pray. I'm sorry I've been leaving You ignored; I gotta cop: I need you every day! Please, Help me not neglect to honor You, with prayers, spoken truths, and kindly deeds. Please, help me hear, obey, and follow through; please, help me follow, as Your Spirit leads! Thank You!"

ANOTHER BLESSING


May Heaven's love infuse your heart with Light, transforming you and everyone who's near! And may your lovin' keep ya livin' right, through every trial help ya persevere. With each endeavor, may ya find success, your world become a finer, sweeter place; if enemies against its light transgress, may they be overcome by Heaven's grace. Make sure that you request the Savior's aid, now, whether things go well or go awry; if you start thinkin' that you got it Made, give thanks that you're a happy girl, (or guy)! And that'll help ya!”

WHAT ARE CHRISTIANS TO DO?


(to Christians, or substitute the words "Buddha" and "Buddhists")

“Lord Jesus chose ta heal, instead o' kill; aren't faithful Christians s'posed ta follow suit? So, every day, let's do some sittin' still, if we expect our faith ta bear good fruit. Let's practice Jesus' Presence every day, in work, in play, at rest, in everything; in every deed we do, each word we say, let's love and peace ta Everybody Bring! Is that unrealistic, foolish talk? What better plan could you right now Suggest? If we'd in Jesus' footsteps daily walk, we must make lovin' Everyone our quest!”
