If you have got
Wrong thought
That’s not the way to go
It will only lead to woe
Life should not be a dirge
From wrong thoughts purge
Below Philippians 4:8
On this meditate
“Finally brothers, whatever is true,
whatever is noble,
whatever is right,
whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely,
whatever is admirable,
if anything is excellent or praiseworthy
think about such things.”


Some might not think it’s nifty,
to be now turning fifty.
But, little do they know,
this is not a big woe.

Some think it’s over the hill,
having to take one more pill.
Another ache or pain,
it all seems the same.

Some may say,
I see more gray.
More to complain and whine,
for on your face there’s another line.

Some might tell a lie,
And I know the reason why.
Their age is a big deal.
It does seem quite surreal.

It has always been told,
no one wants to get old.
Words forming on the tongue,
everyone wants to be young.

I could go on and on and on about this,
But, I do not want to hear one little hiss.
So, I will move right along.
But, before I say so long.

I do want to say,
on this fine day,
I am glad we’re here,
to celebrate in the cheer.

It’s your 50th birthday,
so come on and let us all say,
Hip, hip, hip hooray!
Hip, hip, hip hooray!
