Somethin' they didn't understand
How I get all the women
In the palms of my hand, now
And I told them, to treat her like a lady
Um-hum all the best you can do
You got to treat her like a lady, she give into you
Ah-hum now who can see, you know what I mean?
I know you heard
That a woman
Will soon take advantage of you...
Let me tell you
There just ain't no substitute
You 'outta a treat her like a lady
Um-hum, all the best you can do
You got to treat her like a lady
She give into you,
Now who can see?
You know what I mean
Oh, you've got to love her
But most of all you've got to please her
You've got to hold her
Now and want her
And make her feel you'll always need her
You know a woman
And so easy to upset
So make her feel
That she's for real
And she give you happiness
Strange as it seems
You know you can't do a woman mean
So my friends, now there you have it
I said it's the easy simple way
Now if you fail...
Don't blame her if she looks my way...
The bible reminds us that "Today is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad." Psalm 118:24. And being that it is from the Psalms, we know that it is meant to be either chanted or sung.
Today is a day to be glad, even as we face disaster and tragedy. Today offers to us new hope. Pray for the well being of those who have risked life and limb, who risk everything that they somehow find the calm and peace in the chaos of their life at just this moment. As a woman said this morning, "Tomorrow the sun will rise again." Words are powerful; they can wound, but they can also heal.
The words of a young blogger inspire me to write today. While I cannot discern the way for her, hers is a young life, growing and blooming. I came across her blog today; her enthusiasm is palpable. She is fully engaged in her work with children who are, by many measures, hopeless. For her however, they are each rays of hope!
