for your service. May I share a thought with you that could bring
you life long joy and happiness. Everyone is seeking joy and happiness,
but the world is full of envy and strife and the world is ready to
We work hard to take that
two week vacation or just look for Friday to get the weekend off.
Many think that if they could just win life's lottery they would

Jesus, I can trust Him.
You can have this gift today,
´"And this is the record, that
God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son."
