ok.
If you dream it you can do it.

As I read recently, I would rather live my life believing there is a God and dying to find out there isn't one than to live it believing there is no God and dying to find out there IS a God!





DOES GOD EXIST?
This is one of the best explanations on
the nature of God that I have ever seen...



A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed. As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation. They talked about so many things and various subjects. When they eventually touched on the subject of God, the barber said: 'I don't believe that God exists.'








'Why do you say that?' asked the customer. 'Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God doesn't exist.

Tell me, if God exists, would there be so many sick people? Would there be abandoned children?


If God existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain.

I can't imagine a loving God who would allow all of these things.'

The customer thought for a moment, but didn't respond because he didn't want to start an argument.

The barber finished his job and the customer left the shop.


Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard.

He looked dirty and unkempt. The customer turned back and entered thebarber shop again and he said to the barber:


'You know what? Barbers do not exist.'

'How can you say that?' asked the surprised barber. 'I am here, and I am a barber. And I just worked on you!'

'No!' the customer exclaimed. 'Barbers don't exist because if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed beards, like that man outside.'


'Ah, but barbers DO exist! That's what happens when people do not come to me.'

'Exactly!' affirmed the customer. 'That's the point! God, too, DOES exist! That's what happens when people do not go to Him and don't look to Him for help.
That's why there's so much pain and suffering in the world.'



If you think God exists, send this to other people---

If you think God does not exist, delete it!



BE BLESSED & BE A BLESSING TO OTHERS!

I really liked this, I hope you share it...........

It's going.
I keep thinking "God only gives you what you can handle" and "Whatever doesn't kill you, makes you stronger"
I just feel so head-achy and weepy lately.
I know, with HIS help, that things will get better, but it's hard to wait..........

As I said - I know it's the faithful thing to do, but it's difficult.

When you start to worry... sing like you always do.
Or better yet, start reading the book of Psalms.

I sing every day! It's my connection to the one who gave us all voices to "Make a Joyful Noise" to him.
It may not be much, but it's a gift GOD has given me, and I thank HIM every day I can sing when others have no voice.
