"Love is not written on paper,
For paper can be erased,
Nor is it etched on stone,
For stone can be broken .
But it is inscribed on a heart,
and there it shall remain forever."

Thia was sent to me by my daughter ...yes it is one of those chain letters that you are to send to all ...but I am learning ...that here is where it should be all that read this blog ...please remember people are people they make mistakes ...we have our attitudes...please always remember to look, listen , and don't also take everything has an offends or oh well....this story says it all ....
One day, when I was a freshman in high school,
I saw a kid from my class was walking home from school.
His name was Kyle..
It looked like he was carrying all of his books.
I thought to myself, 'Why would anyone bring home all his books on a Friday?
He must really be a nerd.'
I had quite a weekend planned (parties and a football game with my friends tomorrow afternoon), so I shrugged my shoulders and went on.
As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward him.
They ran at him, knocking all his books out of his arms and tripping him so he landed in the dirt.
His glasses went flying, and I saw them land in the grass about ten feet from him..
He looked up and I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes
My heart went out to him. So, I jogged over to him as he crawled around looking for his glasses, and I saw a tear in his eye.
As I handed him his glasses, I said, 'Those guys are jerks.'
They really should get lives.
' He looked at me and said, 'Hey thanks!'
There was a big smile on his face.
It was one of those smiles that showed real gratitude.
I helped him pick up his books, and asked him where he lived.
As it turned out, he lived near me, so I asked him why I had never seen him before.
He said he had gone to private school before now
I would have never hung out with a private school kid before.
We talked all the way home, and I carried some of his books.
He turned out to be a pretty cool kid.
I asked him if he wanted to play a little football
with my friends
He said yes.
We hung out all weekend and the more I got to know Kyle, the more I liked him, and my friends thought the same of him.
Monday morning came, and there was Kyle with the huge stack of books again.
I stopped him and said, 'Boy, you are gonna really build some serious muscles with this pile of books everyday!
' He just laughed and handed me half the books.
Over the next four years, Kyle and I became best friends...
When we were seniors we began to think about college.
Kyle decided on Georgetown and I was going to Duke.
I knew that we would always be friends, that the miles would never
be a problem.
He was going to be a doctor and I was going for business on a football scholarship..
Kyle was valedictorian of our class.
I teased him all the time about being a nerd.
He had to prepare a speech for graduation.
I was so glad it wasn't me having to get up there and speak
Graduation day, I saw Kyle.
He looked great.
He was one of those guys that really found himself during high school.
He filled out and actually looked good in glasses.
He had more dates than I had and all the girls loved him.
Boy, sometimes I was jealous
Today was one of those days.
I could see that he was nervous about his speech
So, I smacked him on the back and said, 'Hey, big guy, you'll be great!'
He looked at me with one of those looks (the really grateful one) and smiled.
' Thanks,' he said.
As he started his speech, he cleared his throat, and began 'Graduation is a time to thank those who helped you make it through those tough years. Your parents, your teachers, your siblings, maybe a coach...but mostly your friends...
I am here to tell all of you that being a friend to someone is the best gift you can give them.
I am going to tell you a story.'
I just looked at my friend with disbelief as he told the first day we met.
He had planned to kill himself over the weekene. He talked of how he had cleaned out his locker so his Mom wouldn't have to do it later and was carrying his stuff home.
He looked hard at me and gave me a little smile.
'Thankfully, I was saved.
My friend saved me from doing the unspeakable..'
I heard the gasp go through the crowd as this handsome, popular boy told us all about his weakest moment. I saw his Mom and dad looking at me and smiling that same grateful smile.
Not until that moment did I realize it's depth.
Never underestimate the power of your actions..
With one small gesture you can change a person's life. For better or for worse.
God puts us all in each others lives to impact one another in some way.
Look for God in others.
'Friends are angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.'
There is no beginning or end.. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift.

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on
life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more
important than the past, than education, then money, than
circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what
other people think or say or do. It is more important than
appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a
company ... a church ... a home. The remarkable thing is we
have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will
embrace for the day. We cannot change the inevitable. The
only thing we can do is play on the string we have, and
that is our attitude ... I am convinced that life is 10% what
happens to me, and 90% how I react to it.
And so it is with you ... WE ARE IN CHARGE OF OUR ATTITUDES”
by Charles Swindoll

Well Feb the 4th ...a great day ...a day to remember...

Some may wonder why Feb 4th... nothing great happen that day no war.... no great sale....

But something great did happen Miles and Barb were married....

Now a lot of you know Barb is my sister-in-law...but she is more than that she is my best friend guardian angel on earth...she lets me be me...and she is my sister in the Lord. I was there when Barb gave her heart to the Lord...and I have had the privilege of watching her grow in the love of the Lord. And I have seen this friend blossom and grow. She has a heart of gold and shares all that she can. Her first love is the Lord ...and the next is the man she married this day. The Lord handpicked and put together these two. Now what can I say about Miles. He is a teacher , man of God , a praise and worship leader see the love when he leads praise and worship at church ...and you see the same love when he looks at his wife , his partner, his friend, his soul mate. And it is true what the Lord put together...let no man divide. These two stand on the Word and on their love ...and they stand united. I pray this day be filled with all that the Lord has for you two...and He blesses you doubly this year.

To Miles & Barb ...Barry and I wish and pray the most for you two and send all our love.

Melissa says have a fun day.


On your anniversary
