Thought of the Day about Mormonism…er..Catholicism?  

You know just when you think you’ve got a full plate and you’ve haphazardly “told” God you’re thankful He doesn’t toss any other “ism” your way?  Yeah, my piece of advice on that is DON’T DO IT!!!

I just received this e-mail a few minutes ago (April 30, 2012 – 7:10 pm) and thought I’d share it with my readers!  I was thinking it sounds more than just a little familiar…hmmm…I wonder why.   Enjoy!  And by the way, this nice person’s name is Matt.
