Sittin’ and Thinkin’: Copied...Have a Great Day!!! The SON is shining and He can certainly use you!
1. God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts. 2. Dear God, I have a problem, it’s me. 3. There is no key to happiness. The door is always open. 4. Silence is often misinterpreted but never misquoted. 5. Do the math...count your blessings. 6. Faith is the ability to not panic. 7. If you worry, you didn’t pray. If you pray don’t worry. 8. As a child of God, prayer is kind of like calling home every day. 9. Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape. 10. The most important things in your house are the people. 11. When we get tangled up in our problems, be still. God wants us to be still so He can untangle the knot. 12. A grudge is a heavy thing to carry. 13. He who dies with the most toys is still dead.
