Let it go for 2006

LET IT GO!!!
If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction ... LET

If you keep trying to help someone who won't even try to help
themselves ... LET IT GO!!!
Let the past be the past. Forget the former things.
GOD is doing a
new thing for 2006!
So It Is!
Love Use Me In Its Own Good Way,
