Jack's thought of the day:
"Let Go and let God" is easy to say. Letting go and letting God...is when we get acquainted with God. Let's pray for "letting go" strength.
Poetic Light Thoughts
I cannot be a lighthouse
tall and strong
guiding ships amidst their storms.
But I can let my little light
brighten my corner of the night.
