Side by Side

They lie on the table side by side
The Holy Bible and the TV Guide.
One is well worn and cherished with pride.
Not the Bible, but the TV Guide.
One is used daily to help folks decide.
No, not the Bible, But the TV Guide.
As the pages are turned, what shall they see,
Oh, what does it matter, turn on the TV
So they open the book in which they confide,
No, not the Bible, but the TV Guide.

The Word of God is seldom read.
Maybe a verse before they fall into bed.
Exhausted and sleepy and tired as can be.
Not from reading the Bible, from watching TV

So then back to the table side by side,
Lie the Holy Bible and the TV Guide.
No time for prayer, no time for the Word,
The plan of Salvation is seldom heard.
But forgiveness of sin, so full and free,
Is found in the Bible, not on TV

Tell the devil today…

Tell the devil today, he is a liar!; He will not take your joy,
your peace or disturb your spirit.

Tell him he cannot sleep in your bed – there’s not enough cover.

Tell him he cannot sit in your chair – you will not give him a
cushion of comfort.

Tell him he can’t touch your body – it’s covered with the blood.

Tell him he cannot audit your finances – you’ve changed accountants.

Tell him he cannot enter your home – the locks have been changed.

Tell him to leave your workplace – he’s not on your list of things to
do for today.

Tell him to take his hands off your children – because you’ve had
hands laid on them.

Tell him you have no time for his nonsense, criticism or fears – you
are on a mission, and you walk by faith.

Tell him no more tears, heartaches, or headaches – because there’s
another, He, that restoreth your soul.

Tell him; Tell him; Tell him; Tell him.

Tell him, today, you have a gentle, powerful inner peace within that
consumes you and leaves no room for confusion.

Tell him, today you will – respond soothingly to a crying child, a
tense spouse, or an impatient friend.

Tell him, today, you will find no fault with a relative, friend, or
colleague.

Tell him to leave your tongue alone – for today you will not talk of
anyone, before placing God at the beginning of your thought.

Tell him, wherever you are, that God Is.

Tell him, God said, “My people will abide in a peaceful
habitation…and in quiet resting places.” [Isaiah 32:18]

Today, Tell him he is a liar!!!, Amen

Is it any wonder …

Is it any wonder that the world is filled with pain
when we set aside the beauty for our own material gain?

Is it any wonder that lovers’ hearts grow dim
when we do not hold in honor the love we find within?

Is it any wonder that the homeless are weak and frail
when we put them out of house and home to seek another trail?

Is it any wonder that nature falls to ruin and rubble
because we take with no return allowing it to crumble?

Is it any wonder that children are lead astray
because we did not take the time to show the proper way?

Is it any wonder that evil is strong and bold
when we do not see goodness and let our hearts grow cold?

Is it any wonder racism flourishes, my friend,
when we do not see PEOPLE, but just the color of skin?

Is it any wonder that friendships die and fade
when we forget the reasons in which they were first made?

Is it any wonder our world is scarred and polluted
when we allow our industries to strip it as they’re suited?

Is it any wonder there is such depression and sorrow
when we do not seem to care what will happen tomorrow?

Is it any wonder we do not see the values of our brothers
when we hold our own selves above the needs of others?

Is it any wonder our world is like it is
when we sit and grumble with actions we don’t give?

Is it any wonder we wait in fear of Judgment Day
when we do the things we do, then forget to pray?

Elton John – Candle in the wind/goodbye english’s rose
As I sit here in my office, the thoughts of Princess Diana just crossed my mind so here I am sharing  songs by Elton John.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
