Broken Dreams

Author Unknown


As children bring their broken toys

With tears for us to mend,

I brought my broken dreams to God

Because He was my friend.


But then instead of leaving Him

In peace to work alone,

I hung around and tried to help

With ways that were my own.


At last I snatched them back and cried,

"How could you be so slow?"

"My child," He said, "What could I do?

You never did let go."




A Smile

BJ.Morbitzer

A smile cost nothing, but gives so much. It enriches those who receive it, without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it, and none is so poor but that he can be made rich by it. A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters goodwill in business, and is the countersign of friendship. It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and it is nature's best antidote for trouble. Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.
