Spreading It Around

When I opened my e-mail this morning, this is what I found. To say that it moved me beyond words would be an understatement.

I think it is the perfect christening to the "new" look here in the land of Evydense. I trust that Mackey won't mind if I pass it on (and I wonder what would happen if she did?!!).




Dear Lord,


Every single evening

As I'm lying here in bed,

This tiny little Prayer

Keeps running through my head:


God bless all my family

Wherever they may be,

Keep them warm and safe from harm

For they're so close to me.


And God, there is one more thing

I wish that you could do;

Hope you don't mind me asking,

Please bless my computer too.


Now I know that it's unusual

To Bless a motherboard,

But listen just a second

While I explain it to you, Lord.




You see, that little metal box

Holds more than odds and ends;

Inside those small compartments

Rest so many of my friends.


I know so much about them

By the kindness that they give,

And this little scrap of metal

Takes me in to where they live.



By faith is how I know them -

Much the same as you -

We share in what life brings us

And from that our friendships grew.


Please take an extra minute

From your duties up above,

To bless those in my address book

That's filled with so much love.


Wherever else this prayer may reach

To each and every friend,

Bless each e-mail inbox

And each person who hits "send".


When you update your Heavenly list

On your own Great CD-ROM,

Bless everyone who says this prayer

Sent up to GOD.com





AMEN

Simple Friends VS. Real Friends




A simple friend has never seen you cry.
A real friend has shoulders soggy from your tears.



A simple friend thinks the friendship is
over when you have an argument.
A real friend knows that it's not a friendship
until after you've had a fight.



A simple friend hates it when you call
after he has gone to bed.
A real friend asks you why you took so long to call.



A simple friend, when visiting, acts like a guest.
A real friend opens your refrigerator and helps himself.



A simple friend wonders about your romantic history.
A real friend could blackmail you with it.



A simple friend expects you to always be there for them.
A real friend expects to always be there for you!



Pass this on to anyone you feel like....

PEACE, my friends.



Of course I don't mind.
Love your new template!

Yeah, that was a cute email. Gotta love the Mackey!

Template looks grrrreat!

Amen!

"The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and three hundred and sixty-two admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision." - Lynne Lavner*** I'm confused; curious; satisfied; realistically resigned to being a frustrated idealist; usually at peace with myself, but not always. Amazed at how little I know, and wondering how much I need to understand.
