Thank you, Lord, for:
The wonderful people You’ve put in my life!
The kindness and self-less acts I see amongst the ladies in my classes
Your great love for us! Jesus left His place and came to earth to be mortal like us. Being utterly blameless, He paid our penalty...the full price of our sins, he paid with his life, that we might be united with Him! Thank You!!! Thank you!
“Harvard researcher Robert Putnam found that “if you belong to no groups but decide to join one, you cut your risk of dying the next year in half.” One famous study even found that relationally well-connected people with bad health habits —smoking, poor diet, and heavy drinking —consistently outlive isolated people with healthy habits. Relationally disconnected people were three times more likely to die than connected people! Why are we such profoundly social creatures?”
