A young woman woke up early one day, she was so excited.
She said: THIS WILL BE A WONDERFUL DAY.

She thought her BRAID WITH THE Three HAIRS was so pretty.

THANKFUL PEOPLE ARE HAPPY PEOPLE
I read a news story once of a woman who was getting ready to jump off a 44 story building in New York City.

From Joni Eareckson-Tada:‘Why do we feel so bad about our past sins? Because we confuse sin with its impression. Got a notebook nearby? Let me show you how it can be so. Write the word ‘sin’ on the top page. Press hard. Now tear of that sheet of paper, crumple it up and throw it across the room.

Poem: Praise The Lord
