LIVING WATERS
Author Unknown

My pale I'm often dropping
Deep down into this well
It never touched the bottom
How ever deep it fell
And though I keep on dipping
By study, faith and prayer
I have no power to measure
The Living Water there.

I'D RATHER SEE A SERMON
Author Unknown

I'd rather see a sermon, than to hear one, any day.
I'd rather one should walk with me, than merely show the way.
I can soon learn how to do it, if you'll let me see it done;
I can watch your hands in action, but your tongue too fast may run!
All the speeches you deliver, may be wise and true,
But I'd rather get my lessons by observing what you do.
Though I may not understand you, and the fine advice you give,
There is no misunderstanding how I see you act and live!

I PRAYED A PRAYER FOR YOU TODAY
Author Unknown

I prayed a prayer for you today
And Know God must have heard.
I felt the answer in my heart
Although He spoke no word!
I didn't ask for wealth or fame (I knew you wouldn't mind).
I asked Him to send treasures of a far more lasting kind!
I asked that He'd be near you
At the start of each new day.
To grant you health and blessings
And friends to share your way!
I asked for happiness for you
In all things great and small.
But it was for His loving care
I prayed the most of all!

FAITHFUL FRIENDS
Author Unknown

When troubles come your soul to try,
You love a friend who just stands by;
Perhaps there's nothing he can do,
The thing is strictly up to you;
For there are troubles all your own,
And paths the soul must tread alone,
Bad times when love can't smooth the road,
Nor friendship lift the heavy load.
But just to feel you have a friend,
Who will stand by until the end,
Whose sympathy through all endures,
Whose warm handclasp is always yours,
It helps somehow to pull you through,
Though there's nothing he can do.
And so with fervent heart we cry:
'God bless the friend who just stands by.'

WALKING THROUGH DARKNESS
Author Unknown

My earthly plans were made, I thought my path all clear;
My heart with song o'erflowed, the world seemed full of cheer.
My Lord I wished to serve, to take Him for my guide,
To keep so close that I could feel Him by my side;
And so I traveled on. But suddenly in skies so clear and full of light
The clouds fell thick and fast, The days seemed changed to night;
Instead of paths so clear And full of things so sweet,
Rough things and thorns and stones seemed all about my feet;
I scarce could travel on. I bowed my head and asked why now this change should come,
And murmured, "Lord, is this Because of what I've done?
Has not the past been full enough of pain and care?
Why should my path again be changed to dark from fair?"
But still I traveled on. I listened quietly, And then there came a voice--
"This path is Mine, dear child, not yours, I made the choice;
'Tis sure this way will be the best for you and me." and so we travel on!"

"HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW!"
Author Unknown

When the birds begin to worry And the lilies toil and spin,
And God's creatures all are anxious, Then I also may begin.
For my Father sets their table, Decks them out in garments fine,
And if He supplies their living, Will He not provide for mine?
Just as noisy, common sparrows Can be found most anywhere--
Unto some just worthless creatures, If they perish who would care?
Yet our Heavenly Father numbers Every creature great and small,
Caring even for the sparrows, Marking when to earth they fall.
If His children's hairs are numbered, Why should we be filled with fear?
He has promised all that's needful, And in trouble to be near.

Grin MORE! MORE! MORE!  Grin

 Smiley OK, here is one of my top ten.
++++++++++++++++++
WHAT WANT I MORE?
Author Unknown

"In the heart of London city, 'Mid the dwellings of the poor,
These bright, golden words were uttered, 'I have Christ! What want I more?'
Spoken by a lonely woman Dying on a garret floor,
Having not one earthly comfort-- 'I have Christ! What want I more?'
He who heard them ran to fetch her Something from the world's great store;
It was needless--died she, saying, 'I have Christ! What want I more?'
But her words will live forever; I repeat them o'er and o'er.
God delights to hear me saying, 'I have Christ! What want I more?'
Look away from earth's attractions; Friend, those joys will soon be o'er;
Rest not till thy heart exclaimeth, 'I have Christ! What want I more?'"

DAY BY DAY
Author Unknown
Let me be a little kinder, Let me be a little blinder
To the faults of those about me; Let me praise a little more.
Let me be when I am weary Just a little bit more cheery,
Let me serve a little better Those that I am striving for.
Let me be a little braver When temptation bids me waver;
Let me strive a little harder To be all that I should be.
Let me be a little meeker With the brother who is weaker,
Let me think more of my neighbor And a little less of me.
Let me be a little sweeter, Make my life a bit completer;
Keep me faithful to my duty Every minute of the day.
Let me toil without complaining, Not a humble task disdaining;
Let me face the summons calmly When death beckons me away.

A wonderful poem!

It reminded me of this old glen cambell song I have`nt heard in so long I had to go search for the lyrics (tho I like your version better)

Try A Little Kindness

If you see your brother standing by the road
With a heavy load from the seeds he's sowed
And if you see your sister falling by the way
Just stop and stay you're going the wrong way

You got to try a little kindness
Yes show a little kindness
Just shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness
Then you'll overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on the narrow-minded streets

Don't walk around the down and out
Lend a helping hand instead of doubt
And the kindness that you show every day
Will help someone along their way

You got to try a little kindness
Yes show a little kindness
Just shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness
Then you'll overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on the narrow-minded streets

Less Of Me

Let me be a little kinder let me be a little blinder
To the faults of those about me let me praise a little more
Let me be when I am weary just a little bit more cheery
Think a little more of others and a little less of me mhmm mhmm

Let me be a little braver when temptation bits me waver
Let me strive a little harder to be all that I should be
Let me be a little meeker with the brother that is weaker
Let me think more of my neighbor and a little less of me mhmm mhmm

Let me be when I am weary just a little bit more cheery
Let me serve a little better those that I am striving for
Let me be a little meeker with the brother that is weaker
Think a little more of others and a little less of me mhmm mhmm
