I Promise

Here's a song from Jaci Velasquez that has really catched my attention. It speaks of a promise from a girl to be pure and patiently wait for the right person that God has prepared for her.

Lord, you know my heart
And all my desires
And the secret things I’ll never tell
Lord you know them well
Though I may be young,
I see and understand
That at times like sheep
We go astray and things get out of hand

So I promise to be true to you
To live my life in purity
As unto you
Waiting for the day
When I hear you say
Here is the one I have created just for you

Until then O lord
I will be content
Knowing that true love
Will come some day
And will only come from you
Cause I have seen the suffering that loneliness can cause
When we choose to give our love away
With out a righteous cause

What is a Mother?

A Mother has so many things to do,
From washing, ironing, cleaning to tying a shoe.
She scrubs, she mends, she cooks and sews,
She bathes the children and washes their clothes.
When they forget to wash their faces clean,
And their clothes are the muddiest you've ever seen,
Who repairs the clothes and scrubs them like new?
Of course, that is what a Mother will do. Who becomes the doctor or the nurse when they are ill,
Applying a bandage or giving them a pill?
Who becomes a teacher when a child has homework?
She must never her duty shirk.
Who becomes a detective to find a toy or a book?
For missing things she must look and look?
Who becomes a listner to every heartache,
To every accompolishment that a child makes?
Who scolds their children when they are naughty,
Or remind them of God when they are to haughty?
Who tends her family with love and patience, too?
Of course that is what a Mother will do.

God is like...

A fifth grade teacher asked her class to look at TV commercials and see if they could use them in some way to communicate ideas about God.

Here are some of the results:

GOD is like BAYER ASPIRIN - He works miracles.
GOD is like a FORD - He's got a better idea.
GOD is like COKE - He's the real thing.
GOD is like HALLMARK CARDS - He cares enough to send the very best.
GOD is like TIDE - He gets the stains out that others leave behind.
GOD is like DUPONT - He has a better idea!
GOD is like GENERAL ELECTRIC - He brings good things to life.
GOD is like SEARS - He has everything.
GOD is like ALKA-SELTZER - Try Him, you'll like Him.
GOD is like SCOTCH TAPE - You can't see Him, but you know He's there.
GOD is like DELTA - He's ready when you are.
GOD is like ALLSTATE - You're in good hands with Him.
GOD is like VO-5 HAIR SPRAY - He holds through all kinds of weather.
GOD is like DIAL SOAP - Aren't you glad you have Him. Don't you wish every body did?
