                                     Mrs. Frankie L. Bailey - Andrews

                                                       March 5, 2014

                                                THE WAY WE WERE

Let me remember the trees and laughter
On a day in Spring
I see a painted Canvas of loved one’s dancing
At Holiday’s so giving and caring
Wedding’s so gay and happy
Those were the way we were

I remember a voice so gentle
And a spirit with wonder so heartfelt and true
I can see with my eyes, brothers, sisters and a family too
I sat on the porch or firescape
Watching the rain or birds flying through
Those were the way we were

When the clouds look as though they are moving
And trees whisper in the breeze
God’s Art always follows me
As six hands play ring-around-the-rosey
And when we all fall down
This moment in time will stay with us
Into the twilight I look at the stars
They seem to go on forever, so very far
This is the way we were

Never forget how we once lived
God has taken the one’s who died
Always remember the happy times
And through them, we see ourselves
Then into butterflies we fly.

Thanks DeLana for the update on your mother's health. I'm going to post your message in the BTW Gazette newsletter on the home page of the site. Tell your mother that we said hello and happy belated 89th birthday!! We are wishing you guys a wonderful Thanksgiving as well.
Forrest - Nov 6, 2013
Jimmy we missed you at this years BTW Reunion. Thanks for your post in the guestbook in July. If it's the Lord's will hopefully we will all see each other at the 2015 reunion. Take care my friend!
R. DeLana - Nov 6, 2013
Hello BTW & Borger family. Update on Mom; she is doing extremely well...I'm having a hard time keeping up with her.... She gets great check-ups; doesn't have to see her Drs as often and is staying basically by herself with my checking on her throughout the day. This past Sun. - 11/3, she celebrated her 89th BD with a champagne brunch with her daughters and other lady friends; she gave away her Mimosa... She gave it an A+ rating for a BD celebration; keep us in your prayers and don't forget to call, send cards OR COME TO MCKINNEY on your way to visit family down this way. Love, Peace and Blessings to all & Have a Great & Grateful Thanksgiving - DeLana

"There is something about a closet that makes a skeleton terribly restless."
 Daily Bible Verse (NIV)
Psalm 9:7-10

The Lord reigns forever;
    he has established his throne for judgment.
He rules the world in righteousness
    and judges the peoples with equity.
The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed,
    a stronghold in times of trouble.
Those who know your name trust in you,
    for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.
