A poem

Dear God
So far today I have done all right.
I haven't gossiped.
I haven't lost my temper.
I haven't been greedy, grumpy,
nasty, selfish or overindulgent.

I am very thankful for that!

But in a few minutes, Lord,
I am going to get out of this bed,
And from then on,
I'm probably going to need a lot more help.

Amen

Thank God that he takes us as we are, warts and all, and understands our shortcomings. Comforting thought.

Admiral:
Agreed.

Rodney:
It's the truth, though. In fact, I would dare say, I have nasty thoughts before I get out of bed. I'm a bit grumpy when I wake up, somtimes.

Jeffro:
I second that!

This is great. We should pray this every day!

Hey... Use that one pretty much on a daily basis... Working for the gubbermint kinda forces you into that frame of mind :-)

Mrs. G:
Yup. We like to think we have out shiz together, but we don't. We need all of the grace we can get.

NFO:
;P HA!
