A few thoughts for today. . .

*Pray all the time. If necessary, use words.
*God forgets the past. Imitate Him.
*Greed is often regretted. Generosity~never.
*Don't ask God to do what you want. Ask God to do what is right.
*No one is useless to God. No one.
*Nails didn't hold God to a cross. Love did.
*You will never forgive anyone more than God has already forgiven you.

These simple thoughts are speaking to me today, dear friends. Maybe one or two will speak to you. The picture is a favorite of mine, two of my granddaughters, Maggie and Ally. Wishing you the best of days and much love.

What GREAT thoughts for today, Vicki!

I must tell you {I think I've mentioned it before} ...
you posted a prayer on your blog months and months ago... {back in December...Grace for this Day}
Using Picasa, I wrote that prayer on a picture for my desktop background at work ---I changed the photo with the season and prayed that prayer every morning, before I started homeroom!
Thank you Vicki!
Sometime I'll post what I did on my blog so that you can see one of them.

Hoping it's sunny where you are ♥
