    I am to treat others as I want to be treated : I love me and want the best for me and so should I do to those around me : Not expecting anything in return from them : God will recompence what I do. This is also to the ones I do not like to be around : If they need a thing and I have it I am to do the best I can for all when it is in the power of my hand to do it. I can only do with what I have and not what I have not. With my Lord God help I will walk pleasing to my Lord. Give as unto the Lord !!!
