Friday, Day 8

Thought for the day:
“A young man once asked God how long a million years was to him, God replied, ‘A million years to me is just like a single second in your time.’ Then the young man asked God what a million dollars was to him, God replied, ‘A million dollars to me is just like a single penny to you.’ Then the young man got his courage up and asked God, ‘Could I have one of your pennies?’ God smiled and replied, ‘Certainly, just a second’.” ~ Unknown
