Don't you just love a good story? One that either makes you laugh or cry? I do, too. And quotes. Quotes from famous people and not so famous. The kind that make you say, "Oh! That's so true!" I like stories and quotes so much I collect them. Then I look for ways to use them in speeches or other things I may write for my job as a communicator for a Fortune 500 energy company. Or as part of a Sunday School lesson in my singles group at church. Or in an e-mail to a friend. Next to collecting stories and quotes, I like a lazy southern Saturday afternoon with a cup of tea, a John Wayne western to watch and lots of sunshine streaming through the french doors. With my cat in my lap, of course. Life is good, no matter what happens. That's because God holds it all -- including you and me -- in the palm of His wonderful Hand.
