  2. I enjoyed this especially the last one. I hope that doesn't make me weirder than I already am, O.O
    If only we all had the same religion, but then, we'd be robots and not be able to experience all the Lord has done for us.
    Have a great day!

    1. Actually, the last one is my favorite too. :-) I head it from a guest speaker at our church.

      One of the truly great things about the true God, the God of the Bible, is that He gives us a choice. He does not compel us to love and serve Him, although He obviously could have since we see examples in nature of things that absolutely don't vary from the laws He placed upon them - such as bees who live by very rigid natural laws. I'm thankful for Joshua 24:15 - ...choose you this day whom ye will serve... - which gives us the privilege of choosing to follow the Lord.
