Default Thank you My Friends!!

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 s o 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

Rd, this was Luanne's response...:):)


That's Maggie. She gets in my chair when I'm not there, and when I want her to get up, she rolls over, and gives me puppy dog eyes.

Thanks Trip, I must've missed that response. Still, I can't make head nor tails out of that picture (no pun intended!)

Amen to the prayer and I know what you mean. I have way more friends in the box beside my desk than I do in the town where I live. You all are my friends and I do thank God for you all.

That was nice of you to post that poem Luanne and how true it is! I knew it was a doggie in your chair...maybe it's because with 4 dogs in my home, it's a familiar sight. :|
