  • Footsteps In The Sand
    One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the LORD. When the last scene of his life flashed before him he looked back, at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times of his life. This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it: "LORD, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troubled times in my life there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me." The LORD replied: "My son, My precious child, I love you and I would never leave you, During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

  • If I could catch a rainbow
    I would do it just for you
    and share with you its beauty
    On the days you're feeling blue.

    If I could build a mountain
    You could call your very own
    A place to find serenity
    A place to be alone

    If I could take your troubles
    I would toss them in the sea!
    But all these things I'm finding
    are impossible for me.

    I cannot build a mountain
    Or catch a rainbow fair
    But let me be what I know best-
    A friend who's always there.

  • What Cancer Cannot Do
    Cancer is so Limited
    It cannot cripple LOVE
    It cannot shatter HOPE
    It cannot corrode FAITH
    It cannot destroy PEACE
    It cannot kill FRIENDSHIP
    It cannot suppress MEMORIES
    It cannot silence COURAGE
    It cannot invade the SOUL
    It cannot steal eternal LIFE
    It cannot conquer the SPIRIT
