After reading this post several times, the following responce is all I could come up with........I hope it has meaning for you as it does for me....Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch you words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become your character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
Do You know the legend of the Cherokee Indian youth's rite of Passage?
His father takes him into the forest, blindfolds him and leaves him Alone.
He is required to sit on a stump the whole night and not remove the
Blindfold until the rays of the morning sun
Shine through it.He cannot cry out for help to anyone.
Once he does this, he must not talk about it.
He cannot tell the other boys of this experience, because each lad must
Come into manhood on his own.The boy is naturally terrified.
He can hear all kinds of noises.
Wild beasts must surely be all around him.
Maybe even some human might do him harm
The wind blew the grass and earth, and shook his stump, but he satstoically, never removing the blindfold.Itwould be the only way he could
Become a man!Finally, after a horrific night the sun appeared and he removed his Blindfold.
It was then that he discovered his father sitting on the stump next to Him.
He had been at watch the entire night, protecting his son from harm.We, too, are never alone.
Even when we don't know it,
God is watching over us,
Sitting on the stump beside us.
When trouble comes,
All we have to do is reach out to Him.If you liked this story, pass it on.If not, you took off your blindfold before dawn.
Moral of the story:
Just because you can't see God, doesn't mean He is not there.

BEAUTIFUL, Rich.... I guess that summarizes my life and the response my family including my 2 children (only one disabled)... and 2 exhusband's need to hear. My sympathies... Savanah. I would not be a "STAY AT HOME" mother because my husband would not work.
