A GUARDIAN ANGEL


Many people will in and out of your life,
but only true friends will leve footprints in your heart.
To handle yourself, use your head;
To handle others, use your heart.

Anger is only one letter short of danger.
If someone betrays you once, It's his fault;
If he betrays twice, It your fault.

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
God gives every bird It's food,
But He does not throw it into It's nest.

He who loses money, loses much;
He who loses a friend, loses more;
He who loses faith, loses all.
Beautiful yong people are the acts of nature,
But beautiful old people are the works of art.

Learn from the mistakes of others.
You can't live long enough to make them all yourself.
The tongue weighs practically nothing,
But so few people can hold it.

Friends, you and me....
you brought another friend....
and there were 3....
we started our group....
Our circle of friends....
and like that circle....
there is no begining or end.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
