LIFE
=====

Every day somewhere in Africa
A gazelle wakes up
It knows it must run faster
Than the fastest lion around
Lest it be eaten

Every day somewhere in Africa
A lion wakes up
It knows it must run faster
Than the slowest gazelle around
Lest it starve to death

Visions of Depression by Kd Reinhold 

.

I have a dear friend who is a minister. We talk almost every day, and she has a way of counseling, planting seeds and providing insight that makes you think YOU came up with the answer or solution. I often run my issues of life past her. Recently, we were having a conversation about how God is working things out of me and purging me of some of my sinful ways so that He can use me. She laughed when I shared with her that the process is no fun. She tried to convince me that the process isn’t so bad, when finally and adamantly I told her that this process is absolutely no fun, but I’m going through it because I want God to get me where He wants me, and I don’t want to have to come this way again. We both laughed at that because she knew exactly what I meant.

..

Too often, as Christians, we like to say the ‘politically correct’ things, sugar coat what I call our ‘pruning process’ and make everything sound like it’s just hunky-dory. “Oh, I just want God to use me for His Glory,” or “I can’t wait to see how God is going to work this out.” Well, I’m more inclined to ‘be real’ and call it like I see it.  It’s not always pretty, fun or something to look forward to. Sometimes it’s difficult, uncomfortable and painful to go through some of the things that God allows in our lives. It doesn’t make me love Him any less, nor do I want Him to stop preparing me for the things He has in store for me. But the reality is: it’s not always fun or pleasant on this journey; not if you’re doing it right.

A young lady named Sally, relates an experience she had in a seminary class, given by her teacher, Dr. Smith. She says Dr. Smith was known for his elaborate object lessons.

..

One particular day, Sally walked into the seminary and knew they were in for a fun day. On the wall was a big target and on a nearby table were many darts. Dr. Smith told the students to draw a picture of someone that they disliked or someone who had made them angry, and he would allow them to throw darts at the person’s picture.

..

Sally’s girlfriend drew a picture of a girl who had stolen her boyfriend. Another friend drew a picture of his little brother. Sally drew a picture of a former friend, putting a great deal of detail into her drawing, even drawing pimples on the face. Sally was pleased at the overall effect she had achieved.

..

The class lined up and began throwing darts, with much laughter

Helping out ladies in need 018 by Just Rye Oh

Helping A Lady
===============
.

Last summer, on an extremely hot day, temps in the 3 digits, my
son, who is 12, and I were sitting in our truck waiting for my
husband to come out of the grocery store.

..
 
We had been shopping and forgotten to buy milk. As we sat there
with the a/c running, I noticed an elderly woman crossing the
street. She was quite over-weight and laboring to walk and
looked very sad.

 ..
As she made her way to sit on the bench in front of us, I jumped
out of our truck, with my son asking what I was doing. I told
him to wait just a minute I would be right back.

..
 
I went to the woman, who wore no shoes but did wear the stains
of the over warm day, and I asked if I could help her.

..
 
She looked so surprised and kept looking around me, asking me
why I did that?

.. 
I told her I thought she may need some help and I was worried
about her. She just kept smiling at me and hugging me over and
over again. At least seven or eight times.

.. 
I then asked her if she was sure, that I could help her with her
