  1. It is hard to believe that you are gone a way
    I barely saw you the other day
    This just goes to show that no one is promised tomorrow
    The thought of you dying alone brings me sorrow
    Well Lottie, I`m glad we became pretty close friends
    I will always miss you until we meet again

  2. (Parable Of The Pencil – Pencil story )
    The Pencil Maker took the pencil aside, just before putting him into the box.

    “There are 5 things you need to know,” he told the pencil, “Before I send you out into the world. Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best pencil you can be.”

    “One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in Someone’s hand.”

    “Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you’ll need it to become a better pencil.”

    “Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.”

    “Four: The most important part of you will always be what’s inside.”

    “And Five: On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition, you must continue to write.”

    The pencil understood and promised to remember, and went into the box with purpose in its heart.

    Now replacing the place of the pencil with you. Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best person you can be.

    One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in God’s hand. And allow other human beings to access you for the many gifts you possess.

    Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, by going through various problems in life, but you’ll need it to become a stronger person.

    Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.

    Four: The most important part of you will always be what’s on the inside.

    And Five: On every surface you walk through, you must leave your mark. No matter what the situation, you must continue to do your duties.

    Allow this parable on the pencil to encourage you to know that you are a special person and only you can fulfill the purpose to which you were born to accomplish.

    Never allow yourself to get discouraged and think that your life is insignificant and cannot make a change.

  3. When Your Hut’s on Fire….

    The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him. Every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming. Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect himself from the elements, and to store his few possessions.

    One day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, with smoke rolling up to the sky. He felt the worst had happened, and everything was lost. He was stunned with disbelief, grief, and anger. He cried out, “God! How could you do this to me?”

    Early the next day, he was awakened by the sound of a ship approaching the island! It had come to rescue him! “How did you know I was here?” asked the weary man of his rescuers. “We saw your smoke signal,” they replied.

    The Moral of This Story: It’s easy to get discouraged when things are going bad, but we shouldn’t lose heart, because God is at work in our lives, even in the midst of our pain and suffering.

    Remember that the next time your little hut seems to be burning to the ground. It just may be a smoke signal that summons
    the Grace of God.
