Instructions inside.



All Souls


I am a spiritual being …

After this body is dead,

 my spirit will soar.

I refuse to let what will rot, rule the eternal.

I choose self-control.

I will be drunk only by joy.

I will be impassioned only by my faith.

I will be influenced only by God.

I will be taught only by Christ.

I choose self-control.

M. Lucado
