Ever wonder about the abbreviation A.S.A.P.?

Generally we think of it in terms of even more hurry and stress in our lives.

Maybe if we think of this abbreviation in a different manner, we will begin to find a new way to deal with those rough days along the way.

There's work to do, deadlines to meet;
You've got no time to spare,
But as you hurry and scurry--
A.S.A.P.--Always Say a Prayer.

In the midst of family chaos,
"Quality time" is rare.
Do your best; let God do the rest--
A.S.A.P.--Always Say a Prayer.

It may seem like your worries
Are more than you can bear.
Slow down and take a breather--
A.S.A.P.--Always Say a Prayer.

God knows how stressful life is;
He wants to ease our cares,
And He'll respond
A.S.A.P.--Always Say a Prayer.

Today I'm saying a little prayer that GOD will smile on you and send you all of the special blessings you deserve.

Again from the Heart.
