    I've had a lot of bad news this month....got some more today.....(not my personal family), but I have to say, I'm not a person of faith, and this month only helps reenforce my belief that there is no God.

    Lets not sweat the small stuff. Life is WAY WAY WAY to short.

    One night a man had a dream. He dreamed
    he was walking along the beach with the LORD.

    Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
    For each scene he noticed two sets of
    footprints in the sand: one belonging
    to him, and the other to the LORD.
    [​IMG]

    When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
    he looked back at the footprints in the sand.

    He noticed that many times along the path of
    his life there was only one set of footprints.
    [​IMG]

    He also noticed that it happened at the very
    lowest and saddest times in his life.

    This really bothered him and he
    questioned the LORD about it:

    "LORD, you said that once I decided to follow
    you, you'd walk with me all the way.
    But I have noticed that during the most
    troublesome times in my life,
    there is only one set of footprints.
    I don't understand why when
    I needed you most you would leave me."
    [​IMG]

    The LORD replied:

    "My son, my precious child,
    I love you and I would never leave you.
    During your times of trial and suffering,
    when you see only one set of footprints,
    it was then that I carried you."

    Sorry to hear you've had so much bad news.

    I like that song, "Live like you are dying". It's a great reminder we could all use. You don't take those who mean so much for granted and don't sweat the small stuff... before it's too late.

    Hang in there.

    A couple months ago I had just about given up on all things that mattered most in life then I saw a billboard that said "Need help? Call Jesus......." and it gave a phone number. So I did........
























    And an hour later a very nice hispanic gentleman showed up and mowed my lawn. :D

    Mike,

    Make another drink...fire up the BBQ and have your kid turn up the stereo a bit...when your kid comes back out and says, "Mom said that's too loud..."

    Smile...and take another drink!

    You may have had more bad news than most of us, but no matter how bad things are, they can always get worse. On the other hand, you have received the gift of life. Maybe you don't recognize it. The second most importnat gift is faith. You don't have it. If you sincerely ask, you may receive it. If you don't, you can't blame anyone but yourself. PM if you need more info. Good luck. And may God bless you. You are in our prayers. -Rick


    ps, If you do ask God for faith, also ask for strength (in my experience, that will come first). If you can, also recognize the blessings you have (the glass is at least partly full), and if possible, acknowledge that you received those blessings through no merit of your own. Lastly, if you realize that God might exist, thank God for hearing your prayer.

    On the other hand, if this rubs you the wrong way, dismiss it with as little animous as possible. No offense is intended.
