I look up at the sky..and staring at me..
Is a cloud teddy bear God wanted me to see.
Last night I had prayed for a teddy bear to hold.
As I lay in my bed and shivered from the cold.
I am just a little girl...Mama does the best she can..
Daddy left us years ago..he was a drinkin' man.
Mama works in a diner...not much to call her own..
But she gives me more love than I've ever known.

I wondered if anyone else saw the little teddy bear..
As it looked down at me from high up in the air.
In my worn dress and shoes I felt a silent tear..
As I looked up in the Heavens I felt Jesus near.
I knew this beautiful cloud would stay in my heart..
And warm my soul when sadness would start.
I ran to tell my Mama of the beautiful cloud in the air..
When I went to show her the cloud wasn't there.

Mama held my hand as we walked in the cold..
I went to my room and low and behold..
There was a fluffy white teddy bear on my bed...
Around its neck was a bright ribbon of red.
From the sky the teddy bear didn't disappear
In Gods great miracles He had sent it here.
I looked up at Mama as she had tears on her face..
We both knew that a miracle had just taken place.

Linda__ (God) Works In Mystyerious Ways,i.e.
Over past years I have Collected some 2oo Teddy Bears To Give To Little Children Thru My Nonprofit Corporation___

I Can't Wait for that Day Whence The Time Is
Right I, TRASK will do Just That__

I never had A Teddy Bear as a Child, Nor The Loveing Parents Nor Knew What a Hug Was,i.e. I drive to Ohio Visit my AuntIda, She Hugged Me More Times Than In a Life time Of My Bastard Parents!

Don't Buy Your Children Toys & Games; Buy Them Teddy Bears, Hug Them Daily, Let Them Know You Still Care Even Whence their 20,30,50 Years Old__

You'll Hear & Remember Your Little Children Say":

" I Will Be Good"___ Not Bad, Not On Drugs, In Gangs, Molesting, Raping, Maiming, Killing,Little Children As They Grow Up!!

There's The SIMPLE __There's The OBSCURE,i.e.
Politicians, Religion, Greed Trying To Tell You How To Control & Raise Your Children Our Children!!

YourFriend, TRASK

Yes my dear, I too can see the cloudy Teddy Bear up high in the far right corner. And the little bear was sent by God to offer us hope and entrnal salvation. What a beautiful bear, so white and fluffy with charcoal eyes. We all need a cheerful little Teddy Bear in our lifes. The little girl has hers, and I want to be your little Teddy Bear Linda. Your symbol of love and hope for as long as I live. I will always be Linda Mae's loving little Teddy Bear. You are so sweet honey. So good. Oh my what else can Bill say about his Lady. (((hugs)))
