MY GOD WILL MAKE A WAY – Lydia Preston

Society seems in a mess
Mothers cry, while Fathers stress
to be polite is a disgrace
as children mock you to your face

Every day the papers show
that crime and rape did upward go
the things done in laboratories
are stashed away in lavatories

Drugs and sex aren’t hard to find
it seems as if the world’s gone blind
for what the people fail to see
is messing up society

As Dads no longer head their home
and kids all sit, and chat by phone
what once to all has been a home
is looking like a war torn zone

No longer do you find that kids
are playing in the park
for it’s become a hideout place
for gangsters after dark

what once was right now seems so wrong
no more joy and no more song
as what this all was meant to be
lies buried in a cemetery

By telling you these things my aim
is not to make you mad
it’s just to tell another truth
which soon will make you glad

Amidst the chaos of this world
of hurt, despair and pain
and hate along with treachery
all done for selfish gain

There’s this one thing I know of
believe with all my heart
that when I bend my knees to pray
my God will make a way

Joke of the day – What’s in the bags?

images

A man tries to cross the Mexican border on a bicycle with two big bags balanced on his shoulders. The guard asks, “What’s in the bags?”

The man says, “Sand!”

The guard wants to examine them. The fellow gets off the bike, places the bags on the ground, opens them up, and the guard inspects… only to find sand. The fellow packs the sand, places the bags on his shoulders, and pedals the bike across the border.

Two weeks later, the same situation is repeated…

“What have you there?”

“Sand”

“We want to examine.”

Same results… nothing but sand and the fellow is on his way again.

Every two weeks for six months the inspections continue. Finally, one week the fellow didn’t show up. However, the guard sees him downtown and says to the fellow, “Buddy, you had us crazy. We sort of knew you were smuggling something. I won’t say anything what were you smuggling?”

The fellow says, “Bicycles.”

Joke of the day – Only one wish

images

Three guys are convicted of a very serious crime, and they’re all sentenced to twenty years in solitary confinement. They’re each allowed one thing to bring into the cell with them.

The first guy asks for a big stack of books. The second guy asks for his wife. And the third guy asks for two hundred cartons of cigarettes.

At the end of the twenty years, they open up the first guy’s cell. He comes out and says, “I studied so hard. I’m so bright now, I could be a lawyer. It was terrific.”

They open up the second guy’s door. He comes out with his wife, and they’ve got five new kids. He says. “It was the greatest thing of my life. My wife and I have never been so close. I have a beautiuful new family. I love it.”

They open up the third guy’s door, and he’s slapping at his pockets, going “Anybody got a match?”
