Help me to walk with patience, Lord
Help me watch and pray;
I know that You have heard me cry,
The sun will shine some day.

Help me to seek Your will, dear Lord.
O, keep me brave and true;
I know not what is best for me.
Send faith to see me through.

Help me to walk each step with hope
Though I can’t see the light;
Lord, take my hand and lead the way;
Oh, guide me day and night!

Hour by hour, Lord, give me faith,
Faith that never ask why;
Whatever it is Lord, help me say,
“Safe in your care am I.”

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all H is benefits; He pardons all your iniquities, He heals all your ills.  He redeems your life from destruction, He crowns you with kindness and compassion.   {Psalms 103 V 2-4}

Live Life To The Fullest {By Shirley M Powell}

One never knows what tomorrow will bring,
So live life to the fullest today.
Enjoy the treasures that God has given
And never give into dismay.

Don’t let dark clouds get you down,
Be happy and carefree in mind.
Each cloud has a silver lining
That you must search for and find.

Always look for the good in others
And life will be happier for you.
Goodness and love will always make
Dark skies seem brighter and blue.

Love each other as God has loved you
And peace will be yours to share.
Know that whatever tomorrow brings
Will find you safe in God’s care.


Jamaican Jokes

Sunday morning in Bronx, New York. The church is packed and the devil decides to pay a visit.
The doors burst open; a black cloud rolls in with the devil in its midst. People jump out of the pews and run outdoors, screaming – all except for two people. One is the Pastor, the other is a Jamaican.

Satan is a bit perplexed. He points to the Pastor and says, “You! I can understand why you didn’t run away, you are in your Lord’s house, you preach against me everyday and you aren’t afraid of me.
But YOU (points to the Jamaican), why didn’t you run out scared like everyone else?”

The Jamaican crosses one leg over the other and replies, “See one, see de other! I been married to you sister for 36 years!



This woman had a husband who had come home drunk every payday. He had to walk past a graveyard to reach home. She decided to scare him out of his bad ways so one payday she put a white sheet over herself and hid in the graveyard.
As he was passing she jumped out into the road and at the top of her voice shouted: “Ahoooooooo! Ahoooooooo!”. Staggering and with slurred speech the man peered at the figure and said: “Who the hell is that?” “I am the devil”, she replied.
The man smiled broadly and advanced with hand outstretched: “Damned pleased to meet you. I’m Harold Jones. I married your sister.”

The X Factor

Things are really heating up on the X Factor and the fight to stay on is getting more intense.  Melanie Amaro as was expected safely made it through.  So did Josh Krajcik and Rachael Crow.  Chris Rene surprisingly made it through.  The fact that he made it through I believe negatively impacted on Drew’s chances of staying in the competition because someone had to leave and with the choice being between Marcus Canty and Drew; it came as no surprise that Marcus was given the edge over Drew.  Simeon tried to play mind games with Nicole and Paula, saying he took full responsibility and that it was his fault Drew found herself in the position she was in.  No one fell for it and both voted for Drew to go home.  I believe the person who received the shock of the night was Astro who received the least votes and was sent home.  I hope last night will serve as a valuable lesson to Astro; it is better to be in the bottom two than to not be in the competition at all!
