What Words Can Do Lord, inspire me ere I start the day Help me to think about words I would say Words that hurt, or are vicious, I don't need Loving words, kind words, or pleasant even With the right words, we can sow God's seed A loving heart, encouraging words given. As we trod the road of life here Bills to pay, work to be done, sickness to fear Family problems, or maybe your career Is in danger; can you feel God is near? Trust him, lean on him, your faith keep You'll come thro just fine and joys youql reap. ................ L. Arlene Moffett Lord bless this day and the hours in it, Bless this day and each and every minute, Thanks for a fresh day to live Along life's way a little help to give, A smile, a cheery word or two Could help a stumbling s0ul make it through. We can't all be a good missionary. We can help a friend his load to bear. God smiles down as if to say, "I liked what you did today." Little things can mean a lot; Kind words, a touch of a hand, even a nod. ................. L. Arlene Moffett Attorney At P.O. Box 819 135 S. Main Perkins, OK, 74059 1-800-724-NIPP Fax: 405-54
