Hope sings when all melodies are gone.
Hope believes when evidence is eliminated.

THANKSGIVING WITHOUT MARTHA
Martha Stewart will not be dining with us this Thanksgiving. I’m telling you in advance, so don’t act surprised. Since Ms. Stewart won’t be coming, I’ve made a few small changes:

I once heard Dr. Robert Jeffress express his advice to those not ’feeling’ thankful.
"I have found that it is a lot easier to act yourself into a feeling than it is to feel yourself into an action."

THIS IS GOING TO BE A WONDERFUL DAY.
She decided she was going to MAKE THE CHOICE TO BE THANKFUL and LOVE
HAVE YOU READ THE STORY ABOUT THE KING'S SERVANT THAT ALWAYS GAVE THANKS
