 This and That

 

 

      After several thousand years, civilization has progressed to a point where we lock all our doors and windows every night while jungle natives sleep in open huts.

Excited wife: That's great! Now we can get a new car.  

 

Husband:  We'd better get the old one fixed first....that's where the oil's coming from.

 LITTLE THINGS

by Gene Minix

You may think it not much........just a little word.
But it could be the very thing to turn around someone's day.
A pat on the shoulder. No big deal you think.
Might be much bigger than you could ever think. It might
make all the difference to someone needing a friend. Someone to
care and to listen can turn a day from gloom to joy.
A smile. Nothing you say..........ah, but you are wrong.
A smile can lighten a dark world. Just a small smile can be so large!

Little things........you say...........nah, LARGE.........so very large.
There are no little things when they are done in love!

A gentle word spoken, a pat on the shoulder........
time to stop and listen to someone...........

like a cooling summer rain...........can ease a heart and soothe a pain.

  GOD'S GOT IT ALL UNDER CONTROL

by Gene Minix

 


I don't understand a lot of things

And why they happen like they do.

And I can't comprehend, so many times,

This old world we're passing through.

But one thing I do know,

And I'm sure as sure can be.

God's got it all under control

And that's all that matters to me.

   Pass It Along  

  by Gene Minix  

 

Have you been blessed this day?

Has a kindness been shown?

Have you rejoiced to hear

The sweet robin's song?

Then don't let the day pass

And the opportunity be gone.

Just as you were blessed,

Take and pass it along.

 Others are out there

In need of a kindness shown.

You were blessed on this day,

Now take and pass it along.
