it does a body good

Exercise does a body good, but not when you're in a small living room with two dogs.... this is how my attempt at the exercise video went, the one dog is behind me growling because I'm too close to her sock (which she isn't supposed to have) the other dog decided that when I swing my arms up over my head that I'm inviting him to I have one dog growling and another dog dancing around me trying to 'catch' my was an interesting time.

Sometimes we need to be reminded

I got this in my email today, I don't know the author.......

A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20.00 bill. In the room of 200, he asked,

"Who would like this $20 bill?"

Hands started going up.

He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this. He proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill. He then asked, "Who still wants it?"

Still the hands were up in the air.

Well, he replied, "What if I do this?" And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. "Now, who still wants it?"

Still the hands went into the air.

My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20.

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless.

But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who DO LOVE you. The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but by WHO WE ARE. You are special- Don't EVER forget it."

If you do not pass this on, you may never know the lives it touches, the hurting hearts it speaks to, or the hope that it can bring. Count your blessings, not your problems.

And remember: amateurs built the ark ..professionals built the Titanic.

If God brings you to it - He will bring you through it.
