It makes no difference...wear a cross, a coffee filter on your head, don't dance, do dance, divorced or live with someone ya hate for ever, kneel, stand, wine or grape have to BELIEVE when you look down on a sleeping infant sucking her thumb, watch the first blades of grass come up in the spring, turning green and strong, see tears in a father's eyes as his son stands tall leaving for bootcamp, hear a grandmother retell how things were when she was a girl and see the longing of yesteryear in her clouded eyes, watch wrinkle veined hands being held just as they did the first time, sit by a bed and tell your love one to go on, its ok, its time for their rest, those left behind will be ok due to the life and the lessons they were taught...everyone has a higher being, a light to brighten even their most quiet, private time. We be what we are and trudge ahead trying to do what is right and fair. It helps to know that if we fall, unseen hands will lift us up and like a child learning to walk, steady us for the next fall.

Hello Hollie, It's late here too but I generally stop by in the morning and again at night.

You have a gift with words. Probably the longest sentence I ever read but I enjoyed it's message. Whenever I'm asked to prove there's a God, I always point out the evil. For, every thing has an opposite. .......gfp
