  I asked for a flower,
  He gave me a garden.
  I asked for a tree,
  He gave me a forest.
  I asked for a river,
  He gave me an ocean.
  I asked for a friend,
  He gave me "YOU."

Star light, star bright, 
first star I see tonight 

A wish I make this very night, 
a wish that all my friends sleep tight 

A wish that all good dreams come true
May God bless everything they do

A wish that every day they'll wake
to find a helping hand to take 

Someone to trust, someone to hold, 
someone to truly call their "own" 

For days they cry, for days they pout 
A wish for peace without a doubt 

For days our happiness will thrive 
A prayer to God I am alive 

A wish of joy, and peace, and love, 
for these are all gifts from above 

For everything we do together 
I pray that it will last forever

   A man was sick and tired of going to work every day while his wife stayed home. He wanted her to see what he went through so he prayed, "Dear Lord, I go to work every day and put in 8 hours while my wife merely stays at home. I want her to know what I go through, so please create a trade in our bodies.
   "God, in his infinite wisdom, granted the man's wish.
   The next morning, sure enough, the man awoke as a woman.  He arose, cooked breakfast for his mate, awakened the kids, set out their school clothes, fed them breakfast, packed their lunches, drove them to school, came home and picked up the dry cleaning, took it to the cleaners and stopped at the bank to draw out money to pay the power bill and telephone bill, drove to the power company and the phone company and paid the bills, went grocery shopping, came home and put away the groceries. He cleaned the cat's litter box and bathed the dog.
   Then it was already 1 p.m. and he hurried to make the beds, do the laundry, vacuum, dust, and sweep and mop the kitchen floor. Ran to the school to pick up the kids and got into an argument with them on the way home. Set out cookies and milk and got the kids organized to do their homework, then set up the ironing board and watched TV while he did the ironing. 
   At 4:30 he began peeling potatoes and washing greens for salad, breaded the pork chops and snapped fresh beans for supper. After supper he cleaned the kitchen, ran the dishwasher, folded laundry, bathed the kids, and put them to bed. 
   At 9 p.m. he was exhausted and, though his daily chores weren't finished, he went to bed where he was expected to make love which he managed to get through without complaint. The next morning he awoke and immediately  knelt by the bed and said, "Lord, I don't know what I was thinking. 
   I was so wrong to envy my wife's being able to stay home all day.   Please, oh please, let us trade back."
   The Lord, in his infinite wisdom, replied, "My son, I feel you have learned your lesson and I will be happy to change things back to the way they were. You'll have to wait 9 months, though.  You got pregnant last night. 

 Beautiful Prayer

 I asked God to take away my pain.
 God said, No.
 It is not for me to take away,
 but for you to give it up.

 I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
 God said, No.
 Her spirit was whole,
 Her body was only temporary.

 I asked God to grant me patience.
 God said, No.
 Patience is a byproduct of tribulations;
 It isn't granted, it is learned.

 I asked God to give me happiness.
 God said, No.
 I give you blessings.
 Happiness is up to you.

 I asked God to spare me pain.
 God said, No.
 Suffering draws you apart from
 worldly cares and brings you closer to me.

 I asked God to make my spirit grow.
 God said, No.
 You must grow on your own,
 But I will prune you to make you fruitful.

 I asked for all things that I might enjoy life.
 God said, No.
 I will give you life so that
 you may enjoy all things.

 I ask God to help me LOVE others,
 as much as he loves me.
 God said...Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.


 May God Bless You,
 "To the world you might be one person,
 But to one person you just might be the world."
