“I enjoyed learning that after we sin god gives us grace to help us instead of a butt whippen. I don't want to sin and if I do sin god I sincerely ask for forgiveness. I really don't want to sin so I ask for help with this god Jehovah, and lord Jesus Christ and holy spirit and blessed Mother Mary. I make the choice to worship GOD Jehovah and accept Jesus Christ as my savior and I also accept the Holy Spirit and the Blessed Mother Mary. I accept these beings as my real family in oreder to bring peace into my life and not be used or mistreated or abused. I accept working with my family only in order to do our job perfect and not to be pushed or pulled or hooked or robbed or anything else that comes along with working and getting payed. I accept the fact that GOD Jehovah will accept the money and hold and use it for what it is really meant for that way I don't get robbed or used or invite anyone into my life the really isn't right for me; much like the wolf in the three little pigs story that huffs, and puffs on something that I really don't know that it is and then steals or blows their houses down and makes off like a bandit with things that they have worked for. I love you God Jehovah, I love you Jesus Christ, I love you Holy Spirits, and I love you as well Blessed Mother Mary; excuse me studying today and not resting as much as I should. I just heard that that was part of what to do today and it was raining outside and I let it clear up a bit. I will see ya'll in heaven. Goodbye.”
