Morton Family Prayer- 2007

Dear Lord,

Once upon a time so many times in this big family, we’ve had a baby born in the middle of the night in a local delivery room.  Before you know it, they’re off to school and then seem to graduate from school what seems to be just a few months later.  They’ve gone on to serve their country, save lives in the line of fire, started businesses that have employed hundreds, and given a loving home and foundation for their own families.  Each one of us touches so many in a positive way- in our own way.  The world's a better place for all that baby has grown up and done.  And it’s funny when you think about the reason we’re alive to even pass on that gift.

All because two people fell in love

Right now at this little community center here in Sacramento, you'll find delicious food and more presents than you can count.  The whole Morton family has drove in here- sometimes from four hours away.  Arthur Morton said that sixty plus years ago he knew that Miss Charlotte was the one.  And only because of that fact do four generations get together every December.
All because two people fell in love

A beautiful 15-year old brunette girl named Jennifer was introduced to me by a big sister and brought me a to a higher plane of love that I didn’t even know existed.  Then came marriage, a home, a busy family with three busier boys, in a living room cluttered with strewn toys, only interrupted with never-ending trips to school, soccer and little league games.  It’s a life filled blessings and one I wouldn’t change for anything.   And my wife & my blessed life was only brought to me, like each life partner was brought to each one of you,

All because two people fell in love

Every single thing’s affected
When two hearts get connected
All that is, ever was, or will be
Has been passed from above to you and me
Every single choice we make
Every breath we get to take
Be glad your dad could not resist
Your mama's charms, because you exist
You know, to me it's all so clear
Every one of us is here
All because two people fell in love
