don’t test the hands of time
when her heart is begging you to stay , how do you turn and walk away ?
how do you leave a woman who has done no wrong
and you’ve always gotten along.
how do you leave something that will last, and go back to something from the past. best to open up your mind and
don’t test the hands of time (3x)
why stir up dirty water when you have your house in order
don’t let yourself be blind- a good woman is hard to find.
she has become your companion , your confidante and friend
and she will love you till the end.
even when she knows you’re wrong, she stands by you through the storm.
don’t test the hands of time (3x)
she’s a woman who wants a family, and with you she longs to be.
when you’re wrong she may pull your collar if she must
so don’t be stupid and lose her trust.
don’t test the hands of time (3x)

SANTA ! I don’t want gifts underneath the Christmas tree
All I want is a loving family.
A family that I can call my very own and feel that I belong.
There are so many of us here where I stay
And every night we all kneel to pray.
I want loving arms to hold me when I am in pain
Not abuse me and make me feel ashamed.
We are not bad kids – we’ve just been abandoned and abused
And for many adults we have no use.
SANTA ! We are not different from others
We want a family with sisters and brothers.
I know you don’t have a family in your Christmas bag
But if you did , I’d be so glad.
Maybe you could leave a note on all the stockings tonight
“ adopting a child would be a Christmas delight “
From a kid who believes in you !

It’s been a while since I’ve been here
It’s time to spread good will and cheer
There is so much gloom in the world today
And many have forgotten how to pray
With family and friends we are no longer in touch
Because of fires , earthquakes , hurricanes and such .
With that in mind I’ll make some time
To say a prayer for yours and mine.
Christmas is remembering what we do have
Not what we lost , so our problems
To the wind we must toss.
Now is the time to get up off your ass
You cannot change whets already past .
So teach the children about the birth of CHRIST
And all he had to sacrifice. By giving up his life
So that we could live – more than that he could not give!
He was but a child when the three kings appeared
Creating gift giving , good will and good cheer.
Centuries have passed since this took place
And it has spread from race to race.
No matter what struggles come our way
But for now let the children play.
( show the children the true meaning of Christmas
And never take CHRIST out of Christmas )

You can feel the magic in the air , it’s the Christmas
Spirit that’s everywhere.
Thanksgiving is gone and the mad rush has begun
With Black Friday sales for everyone.
Your children’s eyes are open wide , hoping to get that big surprise.
Bicycles , skateboards , roller blades and more
Electronic games . Xboxes and PS4
Yet some still hold on to days of old when children played in the cold.
Waiting for that first snowfall to build a snowman and have a snowball fight
This was the children’s delight .
Getting your sled and taking it to the top of the hill
and sliding all the way down – “was such a thrill” .
And in the city or in the suburbs , the sounds of the children’s laughter
Was all that was heard.
Where children would walk by your side greeting others
With a “ hello “ or “ hi “ and wishing everyone a a “ Merry Christmas “
And a “happy new year “ and walking the streets without any fears.
Time does not stand still and things must change, but children
Should not be in the house playing some games.
“ bring back days of old Christmas “

What is Christmas without family , without presents underneath the tree
What is Christmas without faith , hope and love
Given to us from the Lord up above.
What is Christmas without the smiles and joys
Of the children playing with their toys.
When your mind is empty and not a memory to be found
And you feel like your dreams are laying on the ground.
This is the time that you look at the world thru the
Eyes of every boy and girl.
The spirit of a child is an everlasting light that reminds you
Of another child s sacrifice.
This vision was seen by three kings from afar who traveled
To where he was by following a star.
The gifts they gave was the start of something new
And to this day the tradition has followed through.
It is called Christmas- Christ – Mas – meaning more of Christ !
What is Christmas ?
It is different for everyone ! But for me it’s the birth of GODS SON .

Stories of hope series #15 – the runaway
She had run away from home and wandered the streets all alone
Fourteen years old with no place to go , while predators
And pimps would put on their show.
Offers of warmth and food to eat to help her get off the streets.
Promises and enticements being made , just so that
They could get laid.
They don’t care the age or what they have gone thru
It’s a money making machine built for two.
They know that runaways are easy prey so at train
And bus stations they do stay.
Now this runaway was as smart as a whip and at fourteen
Butts she could kick.
She had heard tales of other runaways , and in her mind they did stay.
She came to New York with one purpose in mind
To find her brother in the shortest of time.
Taken by the step father after the divorce and in the
Big city they could get lost.
Authorities searched for him to no avail , while
He avoided capture and avoided jail.
But she knew a lot about him more than anyone knew.
He loved to sing and play the guitar , so her search
Would be clubs and bars.
With a picture of both of them in her hand
Searching Manhattan was her plan.
Day and night she would search , forgetting about hunger and thirst.
Then after a week of hunger and pain , she spotted them getting off of a train.
Walking far behind them so not to be seen , she was close to
Fulfilling her dream.
Now that she knew where they was staying , she informed the police
Who would be waiting.
When he came out they arrested him on sight as her brother
Cried with delight .
When the police asked her how did she survive
She said : GOD was by her side , As she began to cry.
Faith , Hope , and Love is the key !
Man cannot live by bread alone , he needs
A woman of flesh and bone.
So GOD took the rib which was the closest to the
Heart of man to create his perfect plan . Women !
How can man not love what’s a part of him
That’s why women laugh and grin.
He created the woman to be soft , gentle , loving
And caring and all her feelings and thoughts
With men they are sharing.
They was given a valve to let out their frustrations and fears
And they called it a woman’s tears.
They was given another valve for man to enjoy
The fruits of his labor , with new lives that they could favor.
Now when his work was complete ,was when the woman convinced the man
The fruit to eat .

Stories of hope series – swimmers dreams #14
I once knew a boy named Kevin and I watched him grow
And people would always say he was “ mighty slow “.
He didn’t learn as fast as others and they would tease
Him because he had no sisters or brothers.
So without anyone to play or talk with , he would go
Into his little world that he had created in his mind
Where he would spend his time.
But in school there was two things that he was good at
He could swim like a fish and climb like a cat and no one
Could beat him at any of that.
One of the coaches saw this and called him to the side.
Asking him ‘ how would you like to join our swim team ?
Man! What a surprise !
He joined the swim team and would swim every day , and now
Other kids would talk to him and ask him to play.
He would show others how to jump high and climb like a cat
Till they became very good at that.
The coach always watched him and thought that he could
Put it to use , and how he would show his teammates how
To get more bounce on the diving boards and to do their
Twists and turns in the air, and against his school none could compare.
Since he was the fastest swimmer on the team he asked the coach
If he could try something different with his teammates breathing techniques.
He noticed that when they was about to dive in the pool they would take
A short breath of air then dive.
But by filling your lungs completely it would mean less times coming up
To breathe and saves valuable seconds , and when they did come up
It was to fill their lungs completely.
The coach took five volunteers and with his stop watch timed each one
at their normal pace.
Then he did it again with what Kevin said about larger intakes of air.
And their times were cut 10 to 20 seconds.
The team became so successful they competed state wide
They won so many trophies that another wall they had to find.
Because of Faith , Love and Hope – multiple swimmers dreams came true
And it will “only start if you want it to “.
