|Signs on churches in

which shall leave men free
to regulate their own pursuits
of industry and improvement,
and shall not take from the mouth of labor
the bread it has earned -
this is the sum of good government."

JESUS LOVES ME!
Jesus loves me, this I know, Though my hair is white as snow.
Though my sight is growing dim, Still He bids me trust in Him.
YES, JESUS LOVES ME. YES, JESUS LOVES ME.
YES, JESUS LOVES ME. THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO.
Though my steps are oh, so slow, With my hand in His I'll go.
On through life, let come what may, He'll be there to lead the way.
Though I am no longer young, I have much which He's begun.
Let me serve Christ with a smile, Go with others the extra mile
When the nights are dark and long, In my heart He puts a song
Telling me in words so clear, "Have no fear, for I am near."
When my work on earth is done, And life's victories have been won.
He will take me home above, Then I'll understand His love.
I love Jesus, does he know? Have I ever told Him so?
Jesus loves to hear me say, That I love Him every day.
I Am My Own Grandpa
Stevens - watch the video!)
Many, many years ago When I was twenty-three, I got married to a widow Who was pretty as could be.
This widow had a daughter Who had hair of red. My father fell in love with her, And soon the two were wed.
This made my dad my son-in-law And changed my very life. My daughter was my mother, for she was my father's wife.
To complicate the matters worse, Although it brought me joy, I soon became the father Of a bouncing baby boy.
My little baby then became A brother-in-law to dad. And so became my uncle, Though it made me very sad.
For if he was my uncle, Then that also made him brother To the widow's grown-up daughter Who, of course was my step-mother.
Father's wife then had a son, Who kept them on the run. And he became my grandson, For he was my daughter's son.
My wife is now my mother's mom. And it surely makes me blue. Because, although she is my wife, She is my grandma too.
If my wife is my grandmother, Then I am her grandchild. And every time I think of it, It simply drives me wild.
For now I have become The strangest case you ever saw. As the husband of my grandmother, I am my own grandpa!
