Dear Lord,

Every single evening
As I'm lying here in bed,
This tiny little Prayer
Keeps running through my head:

God bless all my family
Wherever they may be,
Keep them warm
And safe from harm
For they're so close to me.

And God, there is one more thing
I wish that you could do;
Hope you don't mind me asking,
Please bless my computer too.

Now I know that it's unusual
To Bless a motherboard,
But listen just a second
While I explain it to you, Lord.

You see, that little metal box
Holds more than odds and ends;
Inside those small compartments
Rest so many of my friends.

I know so much about them
By the kindness that they give,
And this little scrap of metal
Takes me in to where they live.

By faith is how I know them
Much the same as you.
We share in what life brings us
And from that our friendships grew.

Please take an extra minute
From your duties up above,
To bless those in my address book
That's filled with so much love.

Wherever else this prayer may reach
To each and every friend,
Bless each e-mail inbox
And each person who hits 'send'.

When you update your Heavenly list
On your own Great CD-ROM,
Bless everyone who says this prayer
Sent up to GOD.Com

I loved this mail forward and sharing with all of you...hope you'll like it too.

Taking care of your hair can be quite taxing, but you have to take out time to do this in order to have beautiful and healthy hair. Hair care is as important as other chores that you perform everyday, so please don't neglect the hair.

  • Oil your hair once in a week. Start at the roots and then gently to the ends of your hair strands.
  • Post shampooing, use a conditioner to smoothen the hair. Avoid using conditioner to the roots.
  • Never use a brush on wet hair. They tend to break easily.
  • Protect your hair from the sun by wearing caps, scarves or hats.
