"What A Wonderful World"

(as sung by Louis Armstrong)

I see trees of green,
red roses too.
I see them bloom,
for me and you.
And I think to myself,
what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue,
And clouds of white.
The bright blessed day,
The dark sacred night.
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow,
So pretty in the sky.
Are also on the faces,
Of people going by,
I see friends shaking hands.
Saying, "How do you do?"
They're really saying,
"I love you".

I hear babies cry,
I watch them grow,
They'll learn much more,
Than I'll ever know.
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

Yes, I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

Oh yeah.


Remember,
as we get older....we become CLASSIC PATRIOTS!


May God bless and keep you always,
May your wishes all come true,
May you always do for others
And let others do for you.
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung,
And may you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy,
May your feet always be swift,
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift.
May your heart always be joyful,
May your song always be sung,
And may you stay forever young.

.......'Forever Young', Bob Dylan

There's a new world somewhere They call The Promised Land
And I'll be there some day If you will hold my hand
I still need you there beside me No matter what I do
For I know I'll never find another you
There is always someone For each of us they say
And you'll be my someone For ever and a day
I could search the whole world over Until my life is through
But I know I'll never find another you
It's a long, long journey So stay by my side
. When I walk through the storm You'll be my guide
If they gave me a fortune My treasure would be small
I could lose it all tomorrow And never mind at all
But if I should lose your love, dear I don't know what I'll do
For I know I'll never find another you

Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Glenda Schnetzer


After graduating from THS, I enrolled in the pioneer class at Mid-America Nazarene College in Olathe, KS. I received my degree in English Education and headed out to Dighton, Ks to be the high school librarian and teach writing and literature classes 2 hours of the day. For those of you who may not be aware, the big town of Dighton is the hub of Lane County and had the only traffic signal in the county right in the middle of town. After one year, I decided I would move back home and live where I wanted to live. If I could find a teaching job, fine - if not I would do something else. I have been doing "something else" ever since. I worked for Montgomery Ward in their Corporate Accounts Payable offices for 15 years, until they decided to move the office to Chicago. I turned down the opportunity to move, because I did not think Montgomery Ward was going to make it. Sure am glad I made that decision. I now work for Kansas City Power & Light and just completed my 20th year in January. I have no plans to retire early, because I enjoy the work and I love the people I work with.

I keep myself very busy, I have been the church treasurer for 13 years, which takes up most of my "spare time". God has been so good to me and has brought many wonderful people into my life. It is a joy to be able to serve Him.

I still find time to travel, which is about my favorite thing to do. I love exploring new places and visiting with family and friends.

Was it only yesterday we said "hi" in the hallway or shared the same class?

Was it only yesterday we talked on the phone or crammed for a test?

Was it only yesterday we held our diplomas and said our good byes?

Was it only yesterday we heard of your passing?

And we cried.
