Something to think about.
"Pulling Off aA Great Date"  
Jeff walks into a bar and sees his friend Paul slumped over the bar. He walks over and asks Paul what's wrong.  
"Well," replies Paul, "You know that beautiful girl at work that I wanted to ask out, but I became, *ahem*, aroused every time I saw her?"  
"Yes," replies Jeff with a laugh.  
"Well," says Paul, straightening up, "I finally worked up the courage to ask her out, and she agreed."  
"That's great!" says Jeff, "When are you going out?"  
"I went to meet her this evening," continues Paul, "but I was worried it would happen to me again. So I got some duct tape and taped "it" to my leg, so if I did, it wouldn't show".  
"Sensible" says Jeff.  
"So I get to her door," says Paul, "and I rang her doorbell. She answered it in the sheerest, sexiest, dress you ever saw."  
"And what happened then?"  
"I kicked her in the chin."
When money talks, no translator is needed regardless of where you are.  
Experience is always expensive. It is the only thing, which cannot be gained without paying the price.  
When the tide of life surrounds you and the water upsets your boat, Don't  waste  
your tears on what might have been, 
Just lie on your back and float. 
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. 
The heart's courage is the guardian of the soul.  
Laurels aren’t preserved by resting on them, they are flattened.
May your GuardianAngel be ever near .

We 'Thank You', God, for giving us the opportunity to change our country back to what You intended it to be. We glorify Your Name for all You've done in bringing Donald Trump into office. We 'Thank You' for the way so many of Your people prayed, and You   answered. Now we pray that You continue to   help him and his team to take the leadership in  our nation. We prayYou will block those who would cause confusion or disrupt this transition  in any way and bring us together again as   
"One Nation Under God", where your values 
are upheld and every person is blessed.  
In Jesus' name we pray,  
Take Care, Be Good, Don't ForgetYour 'Prayers'. 
Bye until the next time.
My Father always told me, "Nothing truly worth while in life ever comes easy.You have to work for everything you get and sometimes things go wrong".  
That is why we must keep praying for our new President and his group of fellow politicians. The going will get rough at times and they will need encouragement and prayer.  If we keep praying for him and our country, God will stay by us and help him all the way. God will not let us down and D.Trump also will not let us down, but he certainly cannot go it alone.  All we have to do is talk to God and tell Him we are with Him.He will answer our prayers. The transition will take time and we must not become discouraged. God Bless all and, 
God Bless America.
