Don't take any wooden nickels!
I think of what my Mother would tell my youngest brother whose friends most came from well to do families, Judges and Dr.s Son if your friends are doing anything unlawful please leave immediately for they can afford to and will get their kids off but we do not have the $$ or know the people and you will pay even if you have NOT done anything wrong. She was correct - I've seen this played out to many times in life. Guess I feel the only real Justice will come when one departs from this world - that is the judgement by one who is all knowing and $$$ will not get you in his gates. Finally true Justice. I believe God to be fair and a forgiving loving source - but for once who you know and your income will have NO bearing on what you have in your next life. J U S T I C E - constantly people committing crimes and because their white color crimes - they don't warrant punishment. An Awakening one day not my doing but God will be done. So it's best if you hang out with those with a good dose of common sense and a pretty reasonable compass as to what equates to right and wrong - these can be disguised for numerous reasons but there will be signs if you pay attention. We all can lose our way but if you use God as your beaken in the dark he will light your way and YOU will never be alone - for he cares for you. wish I could say you will never break any commandment but because we are human we may falter but the dark times shall pass and you'll once again be on the road to better days but when we ask for forgiveness it's I believe an agreement understood I know I was wrong - forgive me - and I have learned and will do all in my power to not ever do so again. it amuses me how some ask for forgiveness and then go and continue to repeat wrongs - I'm sure that's NOT how it works I do understand WHY many think and want to believe that's how it works. VERY CONVIENT!!! as a girl scott learned a song Make new friends but keep the old one is silver and the other gold.
