At times we’re like old-fashioned cameras
Seeing life as black or white.
At times we’re like deleted scanners
Printing only dull or bright.
If I think that I am wiser
But you feel that you are right
We don’t need a fight to settle
What is black and what is white
I can’t face forgiving you,
You have caused me too much pain.
You have made me cry too much,
We can’t be good friends again.
I just want to be alone
Letting my dark anger reign.
When I’m feeling hurt and angry
I will let my feelings out
Yelling all my pain out loudly
When no others are about.
When your heart is feeling blue,
Feeling blue, feeling blue,
Count your blessings and give thanks,
Give thanks to God.
If my eyes are full of tears,
If my heart is numb with pain,
Give me hope that does not die;
Bring me back to life again.
Our spirits are like the trees of the forest,
Or trees as they stand guarding a park.
Our spirits can reach as high as tall timber.
Praise God for Spirit’s sacred life.
(Boys) I don’t have to be king of the castle,
I just want to be me.
(Girls) I don’t have to be queen of the castle,
I just need the courage to be,
We’re really like the onions
With skins beneath our skin.
Each face has ways of masking
The private worlds within.
“Be The Change You Wish To See In The World” — Mahatma Gandhi
What is community? Why is community so important? What are the elements of community? In this eBulletin, which is Part 1 of 2, we explore these questions and more
We all have stories we can share
Of times of failure and success,
Of highs and lows, of gold and dross,
Of frugal lives and love’s excess.
