So doing away with all of the god nonsense, we still wanted to have her much younger siblings do a couple 'readings', but I'm having some trouble coming up with good ideas. I'll take any kind of poetry or song lyrics, even some kind of short story or anecdote if its good enough. Keep in mind - I need stuff about love and…See More
