I could curse the malefactors, decry the state of civilization, allow myself to dwell on anger, disgust, and dream of vengeance and then my reward will be an ugly mood. OR I could say a prayer of thanks to God that there was this opportunity to be of service to my ...http://clevelandpriest.blogspot.com/2016/04/happy-choosey.html

Every time I take breaks from social media and/or from turning on my laptop and/or iPod touch, I feel a lot better.

It's why we need to be baptized; it's why parents do well to bring their children for baptism soon after birth. Baptism isn't the last step, but the first.
