A Bit of Scripture.....

I do not consider myself a religious person but, more of a spiritual one. I feel that whatever your faith is doesn't matter. Whoever your God/Godess is doesn't matter. The point is, is to have faith in your God or Godess, not condemn anyone elses's and for pity's sake, let's love each other just a little bit more and take care of this beautiful planet we've been given.

That being said, someone left this piece of scripture on my desk today,

"For I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11

I'm smack in the middle of a move to another state, starting a new job that may or may not work out and leaving family and friends that I love dearly. These words could not have come at a better time. It doesn't matter who said these words, they bring comfort and peace to my heart, soul and mind. I hope that whatever your faith, if you are facing a challege, turmoil, discomfort or whatever, these words will bring you a little peace of mind too. They are too beautiful not to share.

Many Blessings to all of my friends out there.
