Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Oh my, how funny! I would HASM (have a senior moment) and forget what they meant, though. I love the 'bring your own teeth' one.

Love it and the comments too! (and I actually hate trying to figure out what all those letters mean as they seem to be replacing real words more and more these days).

I can visualize the texted invitation now: DNR@8 BYOT. Fortunately, my phone plan (by choice) does not include texting. I'm lost when it comes to the shortcuts.

Every one of them-perfect. I will have to try them out on my granddaughter, but I have fat finger syndrome...she texts at 100 words per second and I am still typing hello. Those durn letters are too little. ツ
