The value of the small things. . .




A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20.00 bill. In the room of 200, he asked, "Who would like this $20 bill?"
Hands started going up. He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this.
He proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill.
He then asked, "Who still wants it?" Still the hands were up in the air.
Well, he replied, "What if I do this?" And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe.
He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. "Now, who still wants it?"
Still the hands went into the air.

My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson.
No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20.

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless.

But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who DO LOVE you.

The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know,
but by WHO WE ARE and WHOSE WE ARE.
You are special - Don't EVER forget that."

And remember : Amateurs built the ark . . . Professionals built the Titanic.


If The Life brings you to it - It will bring you through it.

Well, I haven't made a difference, the world is still at war and there are still children dying of starvation. Greed is all around me.

I think I will just become a hermit now. The ones I know are more at peace with the world.

I’ve been reading some of your first posts. In one you said, “They used the term: "Your book appear as the autentic verson of *Davinci Code*" They will now make it available on the Russian market around Christmas time.”

Interesting, I found the book to be very interesting, one part in particular, where the couple where making love. What I call spiritual love/sex. But I’m giving up on finding that. The movie was okay, but the book was much better.

I could make a number of posts based on your past posts, and I may, if I don’t give up on this blogging as it pretty much seems like a waste of time, the world isn’t becoming a better place because of it. It sounds like crime in Egypt in worse than it is here, but I do live in a smaller town where there is more honest people than bad ones. Well, back to my reading your first posts so I can better understand your journey, it sounds as strange as mine.

BTW…. If I told you who you were, you wouldn’t believe me anyway.

Hugs though.....

Some of the best things in this world have been crumpled and stepped on.

Thanks for the reminder.

BBC: Try ... Try to tell me who I am. It doesn't matter if i believe it or not, but it is important for me to know who YOU believe I am.

Is that an oriole?!

Merry Christmas!

You are an omnipresent spiritual being here, seeking love, peace and happiness with and for all, but they didn't teach you that as they raised you, did they?

You are a spiritual being that needs to have your mate look into your eyes some as he excites and pleases you with his member. Um, long story, long journey, you have to travel it yourself to discover it.

Anyway... "If The Life brings you to it - It will bring you through it."

Not always, random circumstances produce random results. It may take you through it all right, but to the other side. Never fear death I say, it's meaningless to me. Not an issue, my omnipresence never dies.

Hugs

BBC: You are right... My next book contains more of what you tell.(abt. Who I Am)
Abt. my soul-mate...I had him around but he failed and fell towards evil. (He is dead now)
Well, as you say, it's a long story,long journey, painful and traumatic.
