Many years ago, while watching a little TV on Sunday
instead of going to church, I watched a Church in
Atlanta honoring one of it's senior pastors who had
been retired many years... 
 
He was 92 at that time and I wondered why the Church
even bothered to ask the old gentleman  to preach at
that age.  After a warm welcome, introduction of
this speaker, and as the applause quieted down he
rose from his high back chair and walked slowly,
with great effort and a sliding gate to the podium.
Without a note or written paper of any kind, he
placed both hands on the pulpit to steady himself
and then quietly and slowly he began to speak.... 
 
"When I was asked to come here today and talk to
you, your pastor asked me to tell you what was the
greatest lesson ever learned in my 50 odd years of
preaching.  I thought about it for a few days and
boiled it down to just one thing that made the most
difference in my life and sustained me through all
my trials.  The one thing that I could always rely
on when tears and heart break and pain and fear and
sorrow paralyzed me...the only thing that would
comfort was this verse.......... 
  
"Jesus loves me this I know.  For the Bible tells me
 so. Little ones to him belong, we are weak but he is
 strong.....Yes, Jesus loves 
me...The Bible tells me so."  When he finished, the
 church was quiet. 
 
You actually could hear his foot steps as he
shuffled back to his chair. I don't believe I will
ever forget it. 
 
A pastor once stated, "I always noticed that its was
the adults who chose the children's hymn 'Jesus
Loves Me' (for the children of course) during a hymn
sing, and it was the adults who sang the loudest
because I could see they knew it the best." 
 
Senior version of Jesus Loves Me 
 
Here is a new version just for us who have white
hair, or no hair at all. 
  
For us over middle age (or even those almost there)
and all you others, check out this newest version of
"Jesus Loves Me".  It is quite cute, so read,sing and enjoy:" 
  
  
JESUS LOVES ME 
  
Jesus loves me, this I know, 
Though my hair is white as snow. 
Though my sight is growing dim, 
Still He bids me trust in Him. 
  
(CHORU 
  
YES, JESUS LOVES ME... YES, JESUS LOVES ME... 
YES, JESUS LOVES ME FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO. 
  
Though my steps are oh, so slow, 
With my hand in His I'll go. 
On through life, let come what may, 
He'll be there to lead the way. 
  
(CHORU 
  
Though I am no longer young, 
I have much which He's begun. 
Let me serve Christ with a smile, 
Go with others the extra mile. 
  
(CHORU
  
When the nights are dark and long, 
In my heart He puts a song. 
Telling me in words so clear, 
"Have no fear, for I am near." 
  
(CHORU 
  
When my work on earth is done, 
And life's victories have been won. 
He will take me home above, 
Then I'll understand His love 
  
(CHORU 
  
I love Jesus, does He know? 
Have I ever told Him so? 
Jesus loves to hear me say, 
That I love Him every day. 
  
If you think this is neat, please pass it on to 
your friends. 
If you do not pass it on, nothing bad will happen, 
but you will have missed an opportunity to "Reach
out and Touch" a friend or a loved one. 
 
God Bless Us All !!!
