has adopted a giant tortoise as its ‘mother’. Yes, folks, tortoises and

Slow Dance
by David Weatherford

Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round,
or listened to rain slapping the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight,
or gazed at the sun fading into the night?

You better slow down, don’t dance so fast,
time is short, the music won’t last.

Do you run through each day on the fly,
when you ask “How are you?”, do you hear the reply?

When the day is done, do you lie in your bed,
with the next hundred chores running through your head?

You better slow down, don’t dance so fast,
time is short, the music won’t last.

Ever told your child, we’ll do it tomorrow,
and in your haste, not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch, let a friendship die,
’cause you never had time to call and say hi?

You better slow down, don’t dance so fast,
time is short, the music won’t last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere,
you miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day,
it’s like an unopened gift thrown away.

Life isn’t a race, so take it slower,
hear the music before your song is over.


Boy’s Dying Wish

Brenden Foster is only 11 years old, but his time to die has come.
No more chemo, no more transfustions, no more treatment…
just comfort medications.

In these last days of his life, while returning from a clinic appoinment,
he saw a homeless encampment. It captured his heart.

He was concerned whether they had food to eat. His mother says
he’s always cared deeply about others.

He was once an active little boy, filled with adventure and the hopes
of growing up to be a marine photographer. But his leukemia is now
taking away his life.

Brenden has one other dying wish – to become an angel to help
even more people.

Is it only the dying, or the very young, who can see the defining
moment as it really is? The purest of truth – that there are hungry,
suffering people, and even as he is dying, that more importantly,
he be concerned for others?
