The inspiration for this website came from a Scripture song I heard over 10 years ago at a ladies retreat:

Like Apples of Gold in pictures of silver
A word fitly spoken shall be,
Like Apples of Gold in pictures of silver
Let my life bring glory to thee.

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
Proverbs 25:11

Although some of the "stories" listed are made up, the Scriptural truths they illustrate are very real and can be of great benefit in a Christian's walk with the Lord and as illustrations for the lost.

It is my heart's desire that amongst the pages of this website, the Christian find words of encouragement and be spurred on to service for our Lord, and that seekers of the truth find Salvation in the timeless truths of God's Word for these troubled times.

Through the Eyes of a Bus Worker

Through the Eyes of a Bus Worker

Some see a fight, a push, and a shove.
I see a desperate cry for love.

*

Some see a brat; he acts so bad.
I see a boy who’s never met his dad.

*

Some see the messes and the trouble they give.
I see the poverty and the place where they live.

*

Some see a teenager that won't dress right. 
I see a girl who has to protect herself at night.

*

Some see the disrespect and a smart mouth so loud. 
I see a kid who gets made fun of in a crowd.

*

Some see a woman who comes just to use. 
I see a lady who by a drunken husband is abused.

*

Some see a drug addict, withered and worn. 
I see a soul that the Lord wants reborn.

*

Some see dirt, filth, and snot. 
I see a kid who without Jesus, doesn't have a shot.

*

Some see a crook, who you don’t trust much.
I see a man who needs the Lord’s touch.

*

Some see a bunch of heathen that holler and yell.
I see kids with parents in jail.

*

Some see a teenager who gives a lot of flack.
I see a boy whose family is on crack.

*

Broken homes, broken lives, those with no hope. 
They need compassion and God's grace to cope.

*

For every little girl that lies awake hungry at night, 
Lord, help me to keep in the fight.

*

For every scared boy who sees his mommy get hit, 
Lord, help me to be faithful and never to quit.

*

For every mama who needs a new start, 
Lord, help me to show her how to ask You into her heart.

*

For every man on whom sin has a hold, 
Lord, help me to make sure the "Old Story" is told.

*

The Lord sure has been good to me and mercy He's shown. 
Lord, help me to reach out so that others may make Heaven their home.

*

May others judge gently when these kids they see. 
If not for the grace of God, that's where we'd be.
