A pastor once stated, "I always noticed that its was the adults who chose the children's hymn 'Jesus Loves Me' (for the children of course) during a hymn sing, and it was the adults who sang the loudest because I could see they knew it the best."

Here is a new version just for us who have white hair, or no hair at all. For us over 40 (or even those almost there) and all you others...Check out this newest version of "Jesus Loves Me". It is quite cute, so read, sing, and enjoy:"


Jesus loves me, this I know, Though my hair is white as snow. Though my sight is growing dim, Still He bids me trust in Him.


Though my steps are oh, so slow, With my hand in His I'll go. On through life, let come what may, He'll be there to lead the way.

(CHORUS) Though I am no longer young, I have much which He's begun. Let me serve Christ with a smile, Go with others the extra mile.

(CHORUS) When the nights are dark and long, In my heart He puts a song. Telling me in words so clear, "Have no fear, for I am near."

(CHORUS) When my work on earth is done, And life's victories have been won. He will take me home above, Then I'll understand His love.

(CHORUS) I love Jesus, does he know? Have I ever told Him so? Jesus loves to hear me say, That I love Him every day.

If you think this is neat, please pass it on to all of your friends. If you do not pass it on, nothing bad will happen, but you will have missed an opportunity to "Reach out and Touch" a friend or a loved one.

God Bless Us All !!!

Most people whom I consider to be men and women of prayer go before God because their hearts are heavy. They tell me that nothing but continual conversation with Him brings them relief. So if you tend to worry a lot, here's a better plan:

Pray a lot. For such relief to become a reality, you will have to exercise the discipline of surrender as you rely on Him to solve the problem....in His way and in His time. Effective, results-getting prayer include the thought, Lord this is Your problem to fix. You take control. Let me know what You want me to do if I'm to be involved in the solution. By leaving it with You, I will consider it solved.

It's at that point you discipline your mind not to worry, not to continue seeking answers or trying to find resolution. You solved the problem by giving it to God. Your major responsibility now is to wait for His leading. When He wants you to act, He will make it clear. He has dozens of ways to do that, so there's no need for me to open that door.

As you wait before Him, He will direct your thoughts to the next step you should take. If there is nothing He leads you to do, do nothing more. He will take it from there.

This came to me in email on August 22, 2005 when I was going through a tough time in my life.
