My Dear Lord,

It was really  fun writing this song.  There are probably many more verses to this song yet to be conceived, but this is enough for now!  Thank you for your humor.  Things that used to seem so important that just don't quite mesh now just brought on this tune.  Thank you for my daily walk with you.  Please forgive me for what I have done against you and what I have failed to do for you. Thank you my Lord.           My Life is Yours, Judy                       6/21-23/97
