A couple quick short thoughts to start the day and week:
Flipping the channels last night, I caught a comment by a dad (didn't catch his name) who has lost a young child and has written a book about some of his personal life experiences:
"I am looking forward to the future,
because I will have so much more time with her than what I/we did here on earth.
I/we will have her in our lives forever!"
Thoughts from a television broadcast about this time of year in 2012 and penned in my Bible:
"Prayer is the transference of a burden.
Sheep do not carry burdens; the shepherd does.
In prayer, you leave the burden there.
If you still have a burden, all you have done is griped!!
