Teresa Osborne activities director at Coldwater's Masonville House chose Bill Heffner and his tribute to Elvis for the entertainment at the evenings chili supper.
Heffner sang some of the #1 hits of Elvis and left the packed cafeteria with one of his best inspirational poems 'One More Day'.
Did you ever wonder, when you go to bed,
If the prayer that you're prayin', is worth bein' said.
Well I use to wonder, so I gave God a test.
I prayed for a million, as I laid to rest.
Then all through the night, as I laid sound asleep, I knew God was workin', to prove He's not cheap.
A sweepstakes, a lotto, an estate in my name,
The list could be endless with fortune and fame.
I'll give to the homeless, I'll give to the poor,
I'll give to the Churches and charities galore.
For if there is a God, who could pass such a test,
I'll know I'm not lucky, just prayerfully blessed.
Then all of a sudden, the sun hit my eyes.
A new day had found me and before I could rise.
A voice in the distance, shook the bed where I lay;
"Your prayer is answered, you get ONE MORE DAY!"
This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
