    emoticon Away in a Manger emoticon

    Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
    The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head.

    The stars in the sky looked down where he lay,
    The little Lord Jesus asleep in the hay.

    The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes,
    But little Lord Jesus no crying he makes.

    I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
    And stay by my cradle til morning is nigh.

    Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
    Close by me forever, and love me, I pray.

    Bless all the dear children in thy tender care,
    And take us to heaven, to live with Thee there.

    emoticon I wish you a very Merry Christmas my friend emoticon

    Consult not your fears, but your hopes and dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you have tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.

    It a new month, a new day, a new beginning, we can do this

    Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude. Thomas Jefferson
