As you travel through life

there are always those times

when decisions just have to be made

when the choices are hard, and solutions seem scarce

and the rain seems to soak your parade!

 

There are some situations where all you can do

is to simply let go and move on

gather courage together and choose a direction

that carries you toward a new dawn.

 

So pack up your troubles and take a step forward

the process of change can be tough

but think about all the excitement ahead

if you can be stalwart enough!

 

There could be adventures you never imagined

just waiting around the next bend

and wishes and dreams just about to come true

in ways you can't yet comprehend!

 

Perhaps you'll find friendships that spring from new interests

as you challenge your status quo

and learn there are so many options in life,

and so many ways you can grow!

 

Perhaps you'll go places you never expected

and see things that you've never seen

or travel to fabulous, faraway worlds

and wonderful spots in between!

 

Perhaps you'll find warmth and affection

and caring--a somebody special who's there

to help you stay centered and listen with interest

to stories and feeling you share.

 

Perhaps you'll find comfort in knowing

your friends are supportive of all that you do

and believe that whatever decisions you make,

they'll be the right choices for you!

 

So keep putting one foot in front of the other

and taking your life day by day.

There's a brighter tomorrow that's just down the road.

Don't look back--you're not going that way!

Drop a pebble in the water: just a splash, and it is gone;

But there's half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on, 

Spreading, spreading from the center, flowing on out to the sea. 

And there is no way of telling where the end is going to be.

 

Drop a pebble in the water: in a minute you forget,

But there's little waves a-flowing, and there's ripples circling yet, 

And those little waves a-flowing to a great big wave have grown; 

You've disturbed a mighty river just by dropping in a stone.

 

Drop an unkind word, or careless: in a minute it is gone;

But there's half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on. 

They keep spreading, spreading, spreading from the center as they go, 

And there is no way to stop them, once you've started them to flow.

 

Drop an unkind word, or careless: in a minute you forget,

But there's little waves a-flowing, and there's ripples circling yet, 

And perhaps in some sad heart a mighty wave of tears you've stirred, 

And disturbed a life was happy ere you dropped that unkind word.

 

Drop a word of cheer and kindness: just a flash and it is gone; 

But there's half-a-hundred ripples circling on and on and on, 

Bearing hope and joy and comfort on each splashing, dashing wave 

Till you wouldn't believe the volume of the one kind word you gave.

 

Drop a word of cheer and kindness: in a minute you forget;

But there's gladness still a-swelling, and there's joy a-circling yet, 

And you've rolled a wave of comfort whose sweet music can be heard 

Over miles and miles of water just by dropping one kind word.

Excuses, excuses 

I've got one or two 

And if I think hard enough 

Maybe a few 

 

It's cold out, I'm tired 

My hair is a sight 

The dishes are still in the sink 

From last night 

 

My book bag is messy 

My shoes just won't shine 

I think it might flurry 

The car's out of time 

 

Excuses, excuses 

There must be some more 

Hundreds, no thousands 

I can't leave my door 

 

The people are busy 

And interest they lack 

If I climb those driveways 

I might hurt my back 

 

Nobody answers 

There's no one in sight 

There could be a dog 

And it's ME he might bite 

 

The gas gauge reads empty 

And I'm low on cash 

The wipers don't work 

If it rains I might crash 

 

I might get a phone call 

From someone in need 

Or maybe I'd better go 

Outside and weed 

 

Then after the dishes 

To fill in the gap 

I'll get nice and cozy 

And take a long nap 

 

And Oh, I'm so hungry 

I do feel quite weak 

If I go out now, why 

I just couldn't speak 

 

So I'd better stay home 

But then again wait 

Why, look at the clock 

It must be too late 

 

 

The car groups are full now 

They're gone one and all 

And since I am dressed 

I could go to the mall 

 

Excuses, excuses 

Yes, I know them all 

Examine them closely 

You'll find they're quite small 

 

And now that I've gotten them 

Out of the way 

I'm leaving for service 

I'll have a great day 

 

Jehovah will bless me 

Of this I am sure 

Excuses behind me 

Instead I'll endure 

 

For what excuse is there 

That I'd ever give 

Worth trading for truth 

To help people to live.

"The proper way for a man to pray," Said Deacon Lemuel Keys. "The only proper attitude Is down upon your knees."

"No, I should say, the way to pray," Said Reverend Dr Wise, "Is standing straight with outstretched arms And rapturous up-turned eyes."

"It seems to me his hands should be Devoutly clasped in front, With both thumbs pointing toward the ground," Said Reverend Dr. Blunt.

"Last year I fell in Hopkin's well, Head first," said Cyrus Brown. "With both my heels a stickin' up, And my head a pointin' down."

"And I made a prayer right then and there, Best prayer I ever said, The prayin'est I ever prayed, Was standin' on my head."

Long ago when I was young 

And learning from my parents tongue 

I came to know of many things 

To know the joy that learning brings

 

I learned the origin of man 

I learned just how it all began 

I knew of mighty men of fame 

But I didn't know God had a name

 

As time passed by, my knowledge grew 

There seemed no end to things

I knew The alphabet now came alive

I knew my numbers well past five

 

I learned of people and their acts 

I learned great scientific facts

I knew of Christ who healed the lame

But didn't know God had a name

 

One day a stranger spoke to me 

And told me where to find the key 

To knowledge of eternal life 

Devoid of illness, pain and strife

 

I listened to this humble man 

As he unfolded Gods great plan

He told me of the Kingdoms birth 

How men would beautify the earth

 

He told of things I'd never read

I somewhat hesitantly said,

"Tell me please, does he have a name 

This God of unsurpassing fame?"

 

He said "Would you please take the book 

I hold here in my hands and look

Until you find Psalm 83

And then read verse 18 to me?"

 

Thus as I read "That men may know"

I felt the tears begin to flow

For here before me I could see 

The answer to this mystery

 

"Jehovah" was his name I read 

Yes, that is what the scripture said

I thanked the man who came to share 

And brought the answer to my prayer

 

But now I pray I ne'er forget 

That others haven't heard it yet 

So may I publicly proclaim 

The knowledge of that mighty name

The song was just wonderful, and the prayer was just fine.

I'm so happy our family is all here on time. 

So now let's all listen to what the Speaker will relate.

His subject? "Punctuality, and Not Being Late."

A small crowd this Meeting, not many here, 

But wait just a minute, what's that noise in the rear? 

Oh, just a few brothers, 10, 15, 25.

It took some fast driving, but they made it alive.

Brother attendant, is that seat taken, I don't mean to be blunt.

Yes it is dear sister, you'll have to sit in the front. 

Sit in the front? It's embarrassing, it looks so bad,

As I cross over people, I sure hope they're not mad.

May I get through dear brother and pardon me please.

That's quite alright sister. Oh, my poor knees. 

Another one? OUCH! That's alright brother, I know how it goes,

They'll be fine when they stop hurting, they were only my toes. 

That's over I'm back listening now. Oh what did you say?

'Excuse me, Excuse me', Oh, that's quite okay. 

When brother are late they know they're excused,

At least they come anyway to hear some good news. 

Better late than never as someone once said.

But better never late is much better instead. 

Though late, sometimes often, they're imperfect like me.

They don't plan to be late, they don't like to be. 

Their love for Jehovah and their brother is true,

I know they'll improve 'cuz they really want to. 

And so until then let's patiently wait,

For our fine Christian brothers who sometimes are late.

Apparently most of us sit in the same section of the Hall week after week.

This little jingle will get you motivated to move around and meet new friends. It's sung to the tune of our Song #123, "Move Ahead."

 

Move around, move around at the Kingdom Hall. 

Find a row, say "Hello" to someone you met last fall.

Take a seat, plant your feet, have yourself a ball, 

And get to know your family. 

How many times have you walked through the door, 

And staked a claim on the seat you had before? 

Change your seat, you may meet Brother / Sister New. 

Keep changing your locality.

 

Move around, move around; help the spirit flow.

Change your aisle, give a smile to someone you do not know. 

You won't die, if you're shy, it will help you grow, 

And add to your maturity. 

Meet all the others, and not just a few, 

'Cause all the brothers would like meeting you. 

It's our loss if the moss grows all over us, 

So move around more frequently. 

 

Move around, move around; don't be finicky. 

Change your spot, please don't rot, 'cause of immobility. 

Move up close, get a dose of Theocracy; 

We know you'll like it if you try. 

You'd give your life for a friend, I am sure, 

And share your wealth to help brothers endure. 

So let's start being loving to one and all, 

By changing seats in the Kingdom Hall.

Isn't it amazing what Jehovah has accomplished

Only by Jehovah's Spirit could only such a thing come to be 

To have No Barriers in our Love for one another 

What a Witness for the World to see

 

Isn't it mind boggling with all our different Languages? 

In agreement we all speak

Where race, background and station of life doesn't matter 

And when a disaster occurs, your brothers are there 1st 

And ready for the task to meet

 

Isn't it Fantastic to have so many brothers and sisters?

That you can depend on

Whether it be spiritual support, a helping hand, encouragement 

And many more, too numerous to relate 

To the world its unbelievable that no matter where we are

Internationally with our brother we are at home

Aren't we happy with our international brotherhood? We have put our stake

 

Oh how pleasant the unity we have among us

Because of Jehovah God we serve 

Let this mighty throng help us 

Not from Jehovah, never to swerve 

Psalms 133:1
