You might reach your life's destination better if you remember
THE PURPOSE OF LIFE IS TO LIVE IT, TO TASTE THE EXPERIENCES TO THE UTMOST, TO REACH OUT EAGERLY AND WITHOUT FEAR FOR NEWER AND RICHER EXPERIENCE

YOU CAN OFTEN CHANGE YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES BY CHANGING YOUR ATTITUDE Eleanor Roosevelt


"Let him who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her".  John 8:7.  The Jewish leaders wishing to destroy Jesus, had brought a woman taken in sin to Jesus.  The law called for stoning her to death.  The leaders asked Jesus what they should do.  Writing in the sand he told them to let the one without sin throw the first stone.

YOUR LIFE MAY BE THE ONLY BIBLE SOME PEOPLE READ


I WAS SO ANGRY!  I was a guest along with maybe a hundred others at a celebration.  Sitting with a group of maybe 15, one of the other guests, a person of importance to the group, told of him getting a 13-year-old girl pregnant, leaving the country to avoid the consequences and of coming back two years later, after he was married, trying to renew the relationship when she was 15 and with his two year old son.  I was so angry when the group laughed at this story.

MY GOAL IN LIFE IS TO BE AS GOOD A PERSON AS MY DOG THINKS I AM


THERE IS ALWAYS A FLY IN THE BUTTERMILK!   I had done things in my life which I deeply regretted.  When I was 15  I just lived from "pillar to post", so to speak.  A dear friend, who was a madam in a whore house, fed me when I was hungry and allowed me to live with her when I had no where to lay my head.  When I became a Christian, I took to heart the "Come ye out and be ye separate" and ended our relationship until she died.  I now visit her grave with deep remorse.

QUALITY MEANS DOING THE RIGHT THING WHEN NO ONE IS LOOKING - H.Ford


Although I have never been guilty of pedophilia, there is a chance that I once got a woman pregnant.  If that did happen, it would be a case of sexual child abuse with me being the victim.  Frequently, when I was with my madam friend, I'd have a relationship with her "girls", who were all in their 20's and 30's.  The girls always treated me as a celebrity.  Although I was only 15, I was a 6'2" jock and a football player.  One of the "girls" got pregnant and left to live  with her parents.  I certainly do not know that I was the father, there were a lot of other possibilities.  Still, I knew the "girls" took a lot of protection with others they did not take with me, who never had to pay.

I resolved my problem in church this morning.  I had considered discontinuing my association with the small group who laughed at pedophilia but I really liked and respected my host.  After considering my own short comings, I was thankful for God's saving grace and His forgiveness of my wrong doings.  I decided just to continue to pray for these people, leaving the results to God.

WHILE WE WERE STILL SINNERS, CHRIST DIED FOR US - Romans 5:8





MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND FORGIVE YOU OF YOUR SINS

MAY GOD BLESS THE USA

You did the right thing. You prayed for them. Sometimes that's all we can do. That's our part.
