Hope Is An Anchor

Hope is an anchor, and love is a ship.
Time is the ocean, and life is the trip.
You don’t know where you are goin’
till you get to where it is that you are at.
If you cannot read the stars,
you might have to take a map.
A compass and a conscience so you don’t get lost at sea.
On some old lonely island where no one wants to be.

From the beginning of creation
I believe our maker had a plan.
For us to leave these shores and sail beyond the sand.
To a place where we will climb up that mountain,
shout out, and let our voices ring.
And those who have never tried it,
they will be the first to sing.

I will see you on the other side if I make it.
It might be a long hard ride but I wanna take it.
Even when it seems that I don’t have a prayer,
I will let the weather take my ship anywhere.
I just know, that I want to go, where the streets are paved with gold,
cause I know that You will be there.
Oh my, my.

We don’t bring nothing here with ya,
and we cannot take anything back,
I never seen a funeral followed by a Brinks Money Truck
Or a hearse with a luggage rack.

I have torn my knees from praying, scarred my back from falling down,
spent a lot of time flyin’ high, and now I often find my face in the ground.
I know Jesus and I talk to God,
Faith, Hope and Love are some of the things he has given us,
and the greatest of these is Love.

I will see you on the other side if I make it.
It might be a long hard ride but I am going to take it.
Even when it seems that I don’t have a prayer,
I will let the weather take me anywhere.

All I know, is that I want to go,
where the streets are paved with gold, cause I know that You will be there.

Oh my, my.

I.R.S. Beat The Rush

Okay, this is NOT funny, who sent me this email?

Mr. Smith, I just wanted to read you something from the Internal Revenue Code. It is the last sentence of section 509A of the code: “For purposes of paragraph, 3, an organization described in paragraph 2 shall be deemed to include an organization described in section 501-C-4, 5,6, which would be described in paragraph 2 if it were an organization described in paragraph 2 if it were an organization described in section 501C-3.”

Now “that” was not funny. No sir.

In the words of that Great American Crazy Horse, Chief of the Dakota Sioux: “All we wanted was peace and to be let alone.” Here is something else, come to think about it (stir their senses! Make them feel alive!).

What is the difference between an “American Indian” and a “Native American?”

Anyone out there know, anyone, anyone.

Let’s throw this one out on the porch and see if the cat will lick it up? Illegal aliens have always been a problem in the United States ….. Ask any Indian.

File your taxes yet? (Nice blend huh.)

We have already filed this year, did it early to beat the rush. We used that new electronic filing form. “How much did you make … Please send in that amount.” Which is a lie, the Government never uses the word …. Please.

Worried about an audit? Avoid what the I.R.S. calls a “Red Flag.” You know what a red flag is right? That is money left in your bank account AFTER you have paid your taxes … That is a red flag.

And finally …“A government big enough to give you everything you want is strong enough to take everything you have.”
  Thomas Jefferson

See you Monday, I think I am getting a touch of carpal.
