Advice For The New Year

Advice For The New Year
Always do right. This will gratify some people
and astonish the rest....Mark Twain
Always keep your words soft and sweet,
just in case you have to eat them.

Be like a postage stamp -
stick to one thing until you get there.
Be true to your teeth, or they'll be false to you.

Be wary of strong drink.
It can make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss.
Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes.
That way you're a mile away, and you have their shoes too.
Cooking lesson #1: don't fry bacon in the nude.
Drive carefully.
It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.

Eat a live toad in the morning and nothing worse
will happen to you for the rest of the day.
Eat your spinach and you'll grow up big and strong like Popeye.
You'll also end up with a girlfriend that looks like Olive Oyl.
Growl all day and you'll be dog tired at night.
If at first you DO succeed, try not to look astonished!
If you and your friend are being chased by a grizzly bear,
don't worry about out-running the bear,
just worry about out-running your friend.
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again,
it was probably worth it.
If you think nobody cares if you're alive,
try missing a couple of car payments.

If you think your wife's jewelry is an investment,
try selling a few pieces.
It is better to keep your mouth shut,
and look like a fool, than to open your mouth,
and remove all doubt.
It's nice to be important,
but more important to be nice.
It's always darkest before dawn. a
So if you're going to steal the neighbor's newspaper,
that's the time to do it
Take the time to be right.
It's faster than being wrong.
The easiest way to find something lost around
the house is to buy a replacement
Work like you don't need the money.
Love like you've never been hurt.
Dance like nobody is looking.


The Wreath Is On The Door

The Wreath Is On The Door

The wreath is on the door
And the snow is on the tree
God has laid His holy hands
On all that we can see.

Be quick to raise your voice
And praise what He has brought.
Keep now His love in every choice
And Christmas in every thought.
Merry Christmas

Family Ties

Family Ties are precious things
Woven through the years,
Of memories of togetherness,
Of laughter, love and tears.

Family Ties are cherished things,
Forged in childhood days,
By love of parents, deep and true,
By tradition, by family ways.

Family Ties are treasured things
And far though we may roam,
The tender bond with those we love
 Still pulls our heart towards home.
