    What time is the world suppose to end?
    Everybody knows the date 12/21/2012, but nobody said what time. It’s 7:12 pm now, I’ll just have a scotch on the rocks and wait a while, and see what happens.

  2. Your Babes Are Always Near… a poem by Betsy Michaud

    **Please God, don’t let me live my life in vain…
    Help me help somebody ease the pain…
    Help me help somebody ~ Help me help them see
    All the Beauty and the Gentleness ~ That you showed me…

    Twenty little angels ~ innocent ~ free from fear
    A Lullaby in voices ~ Sweet and Full and Clear…

    A bright, new Heavenly chorus…Sparkling stars surround
    The Baby Jesus ~ New jewels in his Crown…

    We, left behind can’t understand ~ Perhaps we never will…
    The hate that took our children ~ Those bullets, loud and shrill
    Echo in our hearts and minds ~ refusing to be stilled.
    The cries of “WHY?” deny the peace that longs to fill our souls…
    Our babes have lost the right to life that makes this world seem whole…

    Families, listen carefully ~ Your children still abide
    Within your minds~ , within your hearts ~ in memories held inside.

    God’s Love is eternal ~ The lasting flame ~ The tie that binds
    Your children are now free from pain in Gods Arms, Strong and Kind.

    There is no better place to be than With Him for all time.

    **Dear God, don’t let me live my life in vain ~
    Help me help somebody ease the pain…
    Help me help somebody ~ Help me help them see
    All the Beauty and the Gentleness ~ that You showed me ~

    ** The first and last verses are from Hoyt Axton’s “Revelations.”
