For every ailment under the sun
There is a remedy, or there is none;
If there be one, try to find it;
If there be none, never mind it.

O God and Heavenly Father,
Grant to us the serenity of mind to accept that which cannot be changed; courage to change that which can be changed, and wisdom to know the one from the other, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Tomorrow it may be different but today it's OK.

I remember thinking this woman had balls the size of King Kong. She could no longer do something she absolutely loved, accepted it, and did what she could. I'm sure some of this wisdom comes with 80+ birthdays. Physical limitations come on slowly. She didn't wake up one morning and suddenly find herself physically unable.

I'm not old enough to have hit that wall yet. Given my unnecessarily stubborn personality, I don't see resignation as a viable response.
This is excellent and puts everything into perspective. She was a wise and strong woman.

I can no longer pump heavy iron due to joint issues, but I still walk 5+ miles every day. And in less than two weeks, am driving out of state to pick up a car to restore that's been partially disassembled for 41 years in a garage. 1300 mile round trip, by myself, with gas at $5.50+ a gallon. At 62 1/2, just the thought of this, after being overwhelemed with dread, has turned into excitement. Less hours on my computer and more in the shop getting an old GTO running and driving again. Can't wait!

I don't want to crucify the gays. I do want them to STFU.

And some want to share their faith in God publically. The Bible calls Christians to do so.

You and your wife raised the kids to take care of themselves and their kids till they come of age and so on. You only have your wife to worry about and you are truly blessed to have her. I lost my beloved wife you still have yours. I would give anything to be in your place.

Maybe. But I find religion to be a personal matter. What I believe is my business and Iím under no obligation to share that with anyone.

This is probably where you share whatever scripture it is that supports your post. Go ahead if it makes you feel better but Iíll put this in the Ďweíre all sinnersí category when I donít comply.

As for DAB? Dude is a ****iní hypocrite of the HIGHEST order. When he starts swinging his Gideon around, first I roll my eye then laugh at him. Oddly enough Larry I donít get that vibe from you at all.

I understand and respect your views on this. I know people from both camps.

And I would have to search for a scripture to support anything I posted.

As I once told a pastor: I'm not a great disciple.

No such luck. It is a red on red, 4 speed '66 ragtop, though.

Do what I did. Get diagnosed for cancer, go through Chemo and realize that I should have been dead a couple years ago. I worry about NOTHING.
