31: For Good One paragraph from the musical "Wicked" I've heard it said That people come in to our lives for a reason Bringing something we must learn and we are led to those who help us most to grow if we let them And we help them in return Well, I don't know if I believe that's true But I know I'm who I am today Because I knew you... | August 11, 1979
32: always in our hearts | I Said A Prayer For You Today I said a prayer for you today and know God must have heard. I felt the answer in my heart although He spoke no word! I didn’t ask for wealth or fame (I knew you wouldn’t mind). I asked Him to send treasures of a far more lasting kind! I asked that He’d be near you at the start of each new day; to grant your health and blessings and friends to share your way! I asked for happiness for you in all things great and small. But it was for His loving care I prayed for the most of all!
