    $20.00


    :ref: Sometimes we just need to be
    reminded!:ref:




    A well-known speaker
    started off his seminar by:

    holding up a $20.00
    bill In the room of 200, he asked, "Who would like this
    $20 bill?"

    Hands started going up.


    He said, "I am going to give this
    $20 to one of you

    but first, let me
    do this.


    He proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill .


    He then asked, "Who
    still wants it?"

    Still the hands
    were up in the air.

    Well, he
    replied, "What if I do this?"

    And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe.

    He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty.


    "Now, who still wants it?"


    Still the hands went into the air.


    My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson.

    No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it

    because it did not decrease in value.



    It was still worth $20.


    Many times in our lives,


    we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt

    by the decisions we make and

    the circumstances that come
    our way.:bye:

    We feel as though we are worthless.:bye:

    But no matter what has
    happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.

    Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased,

    you are still
    priceless to those who DO LOVE you.

    The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know,

    but by WHO WE ARE and
    WHOSE WE ARE.

    You are special
    -
    Don't EVER forget it.":ilu:

    If you do not pass
    this on, you may never know the

    lives it touches, the
    hurting hearts it speaks to,

    or the hope that it can bring.

    Count your blessings,
    not your problems.

    "And remember:
    amateurs built the ark ....

    professionals built the Titanic.

    If God brings you to
    it - He will bring you through it!:spinstar:
