I was stunned and so excited when I heard yesterday's unemployment numbers.  We're on the mend!  We're on the rebound.  I was anxiously looking at the news in anticipation for last month's unemployment numbers.  If you hadn't heard, the expection was that unemployment numbers would drop by a bit ...
OK.....sure it's cliche. Sure it's a golden oldies, but when I did my You Tube search for the best music videos of all time, this was hanging out there as number four. At least #4 in my search. So I was thinking Where's Wayne's World When you need it most? Party On Wayne.....Party On Garth!!!!

 1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
(John 14:1-4, New King James Version) I review for BookSneeze
