Recipes to keep

This one has been in my recipe box for more than 50 years.

Nothing's as bad as it seems

There are times we are filled with frustration
'Cause we can't satisfy all our dreams;
But there's always this one consolation,
That nothing's as bad as it seems.

Age is a bounty as reason expands,
If we learn from what living can teach.
Our destiny lies in our minds and our hands:
So be grateful for goals you can reach.

Don't ever despair of the present-
Refrain from outlandish extremes.
Accept with a smile what is good for awhile.
For nothing's as bad as it seems.
by Al Price

This one has been taped on my computer for 20 years!

If I can do some good today,
If I can help in what I say,
If by my deeds Your love convey-
Dear Lord, just show me how.  by Brandt

Real love is helping others for Jesus' sake even if they can never return the favor.
