SUNDAY BEST . . . TEN THINGS OF WHICH I AM CONVINCED . . .

1) Faith is a choice;

2) The Lord is my Shepard, I shall not want;

3) More often than not, the dictates of Fundamentalists, Churchfolk, Preachers and Organized Religion block one's path to the Lord;

4) Prayer works;

5) The Jewish cantor, the Southern Black hymn and the cries of a child all sound the same to God's ears;

6) Joy Cometh in the Morning;

7) Blessed are the Peacemakers;

8) A little child shall lead them;

9) The meek shall inherit the earth;

10) Jesus wept . . . (and so should we)

(Conceived while listening to songs from Aretha Franklin's "Amazing Grace.")

PJazzy & Shelia,
Thanks. I've been in an "Amazing Grace" mood of late. Matter of fact, I think I'll go put some on now . . . Just a little goes a long way (smile).
