This is a very tough subject to deal with in a forum like this. It's topic coud offend some or bring out a debate on the subject. If you would like help in understanding how I am developing my relationship with God, please email. I just know that God loves me more than he does my happiness and wants me to undertand that without the storms, I will never know the peace that the sunshine brings. Please email if you would like to discuss this on a more private basis. I do believe there is a God out there who is waiting for me to come to him and say "I can't live without you. I have tried and failed miserably. I not only need You every day, but I need You every hour of each day". Good luck and God bless!
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.
