Today, I thought I would share a few with you all.
Jeremiah 29: 11-14 NLT

Ecclesiastes 7:1 NLT

And the day you die is better than the day you are born.
Ecclesiastes 7:1 Jewish Bible

These are just a few of the ones I thought of. It’s cool to see how they are some times so much alike, and other times so much different.

God bless you today and always!
