 Our Refuge and Strength

(Psalm 46)

+ + +

.

Lord we can come to You
And find shelter from the storms of life
For You are always present to help
To protect us from trouble and strife

.

 

Though the earth vanish from sight
And the mountains are carried away
Yet will we not be afraid
For You are our hope and stay

.

 

If the waters begin to roar
And there is trouble all about
There is One who will help us
When we are filled with doubt

.

 

God walks in our midst
To comfort and to guide
Our enemies will be defeated
If in Him we will abide

.

 

Come now and behold
What for us the Lord has done
How He destroyed the heathen nations
Before the going down of the sun

.

 

He made the wars to cease
In the land that to us He did give

Only you Can Make The Right Things Happen In Your Life

 You don’t need anyone else

to give your life direction.

You know what’s right for you.

Inside your heart exists

a special knowledge

of the plans you’ve made,

the hopes you have,

and the dreams you hold.

You may be hesitant at times,

even fearful to go on,

but that’s a natural feeling

all of us go through.

What you need to remember

is what means the most to you

and how to keep alive your

hopes

and dreams.

.

Then, with all the greatness

that is within you,

go in that new direction -

backed by your own faith,

One song can spark a moment
One flower can wake a dream
One tree can start a forest
One bird can herald spring

+=+

One smile begins friendship
One handclasp lifts a soul
One star can guide a ship at the sea
One word can frame a goal

+=+

One vote can change a nation
One sunbeam lights a room
One candle wipes all the darkness
One laugh will conquer gloom

+=+

One step must start each journey
One word must start each prayer
One hope will raise our spirits
One touch can show you care

Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don’t we might as well lay down and die

You and I

“DON’T  QUIT”

.

When things go wrong as they sometimes will

 

When the road you’re trudging

 

seems all up hill,

 

When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

.

(~)~(~)~(~)

.

Life is odd with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.

 

 

(~)~(~)~(~)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Success is failure turned inside out,

 

The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are.

It may be near when it seems so far.

So, stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit.

 

It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.
