  • “Find your aim in life before you run out of ammunition.”

    I think sometimes we need to recalibrate our sights.

  • These are great. I’ll file these away for possible future status updates on Facebook 🙂 🙂 Hmm…my pastor was teaching through Exodus 20 about what he calls “The Big 10”..the 10 commandments 😉 🙂 Before he started teaching, he read the hillbilly translation of the big 10 🙂 :)…and the last one was “Don’t have a hankerin’ for your neighbor’s stuff”…rem inds me of the cowboy translation 🙂 🙂 Have a great week…blessings from Oregon, Heather 🙂

  • I think my favorite is the first one. Or maybe the second to last. Can’t decide.
