A friend of mine, Sandy whom I have known 43 years at least, sent me this prayer comprised of several verses from the Book of Psalms. I hope it blesses you as it did me. Sandy was such a big influence on my life in the 1960's. She is a few years older than I am. I think I learned to read because she read Dr Suess to me and I liked her Archie comic books. She also led me into high fashion - she had them, I have to have them - white gogo boots w/ zippers up the back, they were hideous. I thought I looked great at 5 in my stirrup pants, white gogo boots and long, blonde fall. Not only did she lead me into high fashion, she passed me her love for frosted lipstick and O J's Beauty Lotion as well as a love for the Lord.
