WARNING: in this my 90th post, I am about to do something I said I would never do: rant and rave over something like my opinion really matters or you even care about my opinion. YOU MAY WANT TO SKIP THE FOLLOWING SCREED. In either case, watch the video first reflect, reflect, and pray.]

[The first nine statements are very good and truly thought-provoking. Since God is a loving, just, and merciful God, it is highly doubtful that God wants us to:
1. increase traffic on an overburdened internet,
2. waste our and others time by sending stuff like this,
3. to show our love for somebody by giving them homework, and
4. to express our faith in and love for God by pressing a button on a screen.
God is much more practical. It’s is actions in the real world and not words on the Internet that God wants and expects. In the words of Dennis Miller: “That’s just my opinion. I could be wrong!”……..What do you think?]

    3] Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes few seconds to burn, but it takes
    years to write.

    4] All things in life are temporary. If going well, enjoy it, they will
    not last forever. If going wrong, don’t worry, they can’t last long either.

    5] Old Friends are Gold! New Friends are Diamond! If you get a Diamond,
    don’t forget the Gold! Because to hold a Diamond, you always need a Base of

    6] Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from
    above and says, “Relax, sweetheart, it’s just a bend, not the end!

    sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for

  2. We need to touch the lives of other people, not with the fear of an earth crushing God, but with the love of the eternal all loving, caring God who sees us through the rough times. Your blog is doing just that….without frightening vidios!
