Gettin a.....Round Tuit

Thursday, August 11, 2011

One of the teams I am on "3rd Annual Rootin For Ruby Labor Day Pound-a-thon" is having a challenge today to Stop procrastination and do something you've been putting off. I remembered a poem I read once and found it, so thought I would share. I am not sure who the Author was, but it is approprate for this challenge.

Tuit's are hard to come by...
Especially round ones.

After years of searching I have finally managed to obtain a round Tuit.
No longer will I have to wait to do all those tasks I have put off.

So guard this one and
Never lose it.
Don't let anyone take it away from you.
Now that you have one,
There should be fantastic results.

I have heard people say,
"I'll be faithful to the Lord just as soon as I can get around to it."
Thankfully, it is finally here!
And now that you have your very own round Tuit,
many things that have been needed to be done
for the Lord should finally get done.

Have you ever said,
"I'll go visit a Friend
as soon as I get a round Tuit."
"I'll read my Bible
when I get a round Tuit"?

Perhaps you have used one of these,
"I'll go to church or join an organization
if I get a round Tuit.."
"I'll help my parents or neighbors,
I'll help the needy,
I'll say a prayer for someone,
I'll do a good deed,
I'll tell a friend about God,
I'll tell someone I love you,
I'll visit a sick friend,
if I get a round Tuit."

These are all in the past.
Great new things will be in
store for you in the future.


There is a special place in life,
That needs my humble skill,
A certain job I'm meant to do,
Which no one else can fulfill.

The time will be demanding,
And the pay is not too good
And yet I wouldn't change it
for a moment -- even if I could

There is a special place in life,
A goal I must attain,
A dream that I must follow,
Because I won't be back again.

There is a mark that I must leave,
However small it seems to be,
A legacy of love for those
Who follow after me

There is a special place in life,
That only I may share,
A little path that bears my name,
Awaiting me somewhere.

There is a hand that I must hold,
A word that I must say,
A smile that I must give
For there are tears to blow away.

There is a special place in life
that I was meant to fill.
A sunny spot where flowers grow,
upon a windy hill.

There's always a tomorrow and the
best is yet to be,
And somewhere in this world,
I know there is a place for me.

I would rather have a rose from a garden of a friend
than to have the choicest flowers when my stay on earth must end.

I would rather have one single word of kindness said to me
than flattery around my grave when life has ceased to be.

So bring to me one flower, be it pink or white or red.

For I would rather have one bloom today
than a truck load when I am dead!
