getting ready for spring time with 70º weather in Texas, we are blind

Here is a thought for the day again from Stephen R. Covey:
"You can buy people's hands, but you can't buy their hearts. Their
hearts are where their enthusiasm, their loyalty is. You can buy their
backs, but you can't buy their brains. That's where their creativity is,
their ingenuity, their resourcefulness."

Every single evening
As I'm lying here in bed
This tiny little prayer
Keeps running through my head.
God bless my mom and dad,
And other family.
Keep them warm and safe from harm
For they're so close to me.
And God, there is one more thing
I wish that you could do.
Hope you don't mind me asking,
Bless my computer too.
Now I know that it's not normal
To bless a mother board,
But listen just a second
While I explain to you 'My Lord'.
You see, that little metal box
Holds more than odds & ends
Inside those small compartments
Rest so many of my FRIENDS.
I know so much about them
By the kindness that they give
And this little scrap of metal
Takes me in to where they live.
By faith is how I know them
Much the same as you
We share in what life brings us
And from that our friendship grew.
Please, take an extra minute
From your duties up above
To bless those in my address book
That's filled with so much love!
Wherever else this prayer may reach
To each and every friend,
Bless each email inbox
And the person who hits send.
When you update your heavenly list
On your own CD-Rom
Remember each who've said this prayer
Sent up to God.com.
