Thank You Lord!!!

Even though I clutch my blanket and growl when the alarm rings each morning,  Thank You, Lord, that I can hear. For there are those who are deaf.

He looked over his shoulder and saw that the bear was closing in on him. He tried to run even faster, so scared that tears were coming to his eyes.
