' A Child Needs.........'
We are products of our environment it is said
and from birth through life we are variously led
From infancy to childhood others are in charge
When you are little, others seem rather large.
A child needs benevolent and respectful care
As well as being taught to love and play fair.

To God Be
The morning begins with a prayer.
Thank you Father for your care.
Praise you for your marvelous deeds
And caring for our numerous needs.
Because of you we have breath and live.
All good graces and blessings You give.
You are the Lord of Lords and King of kings;
Peace is the gift that your mercy brings.
