My mom's friend who sends those terrible forwards is at it again. She has eased up on the forwarding as all emailers do as they go through their emailing life cycle, but I have to hope this one is the swan song:
> Dear Lord:
> Every single evening
> As I'm lying here in bed,
> This tiny little Prayer
> Keeps running through my head.
> God bless all my family
> Wherever they may be,
> 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
> Please bless my computer too.
> Now I know that it's unusual
> To Bless a motherboard,
> But listen just a second
> While I explain it to you, Lord.
> You see that little metal box
> Holds more than odds and 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 friendships 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 e-mail inbox
> And each person who hits send.
> When you update your Heavenly list
> On your own CD-ROM,
> Bless everyone who says this prayer
> Sent up to GOD.com.
