It's just you and me Lord

It's just you and me Lord   by Marion Stroud

A collection of prayers for everyday life for women from marriage to old age.Its a great book, I read it every night before going to bed. Helps you think about things, has quotes from the
bible and others.

  The quote I like the best is:
" Yesterday is a cancelled cheque.
 Tomorrow is a promissory note.
 Today is the only cash you have,
 so spend it wisely."
Kim Lyons.

I hope they make a Volume two. I gave it  5 stars.
