Enlighten all their minds, inspire their hearts; please, help them see your Truth, and learn ta care. Please, grant them faith, and basic moral Smarts, for kindly leadership, them all prepare! Please, and thank you! Amen!”

GIFTS OF GOD

 “A loving heart’s the greatest gift of all; a mind that’s sane ‘s a perfect blessing, too. The hand of Christ to Lift us when we fall, the light o’ Christ ta shine when we feel blue – now, these are things that everybody needs. I wish ya Certain things ya need Today: a mind that Heaven’s helpful counsel heeds, that’s always wise enough ta think ta pray! And ta pray sometimes even if ya don’t think ya need to! AMEN!!”

 “Oh, please, help Trump get Smart, and straighten up, and please, now, won’t ya do the same fer Me? If I’d have blessings overflow my cup, I can’t use one that’s leaky, now, ya see? Enough said!”



WHY BE A FOOL?

(note for myself)

“Intelligent, but thinking like a fool – there’s many folks around the World like that. We monkeys tend ta think we’re Wise, and Cool, but Doing so is Nuts, not Where it’s At! Yes, vanity is foolish, through and through; when You be Proud, you’re apt ta blow it bad! So don’t be vain, if you would have a clue, but humbly pray, dear self, and You’ll be Glad!” “Why be a fool, when Life’s a School?!”

THE LOST GET FOUND

 “Oh, once I realized I’d been a fool; intelligence appeared, right then and there. And when I understand that life’s a school, I think I better do some more ta care. ‘Cause kindness, that’s a skill I need ta learn, a grace I need ta practice every day. I gotta show some genuine concern, for love within my heart I ought ta pray. So, Heaven, Help me learn ta love much more, enough to cover all the earth around. ‘Cause love’s what many folks are waiting for, the freedom, peace, and joy of being Found! Lord, help me bring all those!”

UNATTACHED TO DOING

 “Please, don’t attach to getting something done; be kind and merciful ta You instead. The goal toward which ya oh-so-madly run, ain’t Worth it! Better stop and use your head!”
