** Off to the Hospital and The Secret **

Friday, April 15, 2011

My doctor stopped in because she was in the area. She took one look at me and said I have Cellulitis. My stomach is so big I have trouble typing. The swelling gets in the way. So they are sending me to the University of Pennsylvania which is like an hour away. They are among the top Hospitals in the country. Only draw back is it is expensive to park and the gas cost.

So wish me luck.







** The Secret **
-Author Unknown



A woman named Vicki once knew a young person at church named Susan. Susan always seemed effervescent and happy, although Vicki knew she had faced struggles in her life. Her long-awaited marriage had quickly ended in divorce. She had struggled to get a grip on her single life. She hadn't chosen it, but she decided she would live it with utmost enjoyment and satisfaction. Susan was active in Sunday school, in the choir, as a leader of the junior high girls' group, and in the church renewal movement. Vicki enjoyed knowing Susan. Susan's whole face seemed to smile.



One day Vicki asked Susan, "How is it that you are always so happy, you have so much energy, and you never seem to get down?" With her eyes smiling, Susan said,"I know the Secret!"



"What secret is that, what are you talking about?" Vicki asked.



Susan replied, "I'll tell you all about it, but you have to promise to share the Secret with others."



Vicki agreed, "Okay, now what is it?"



The Secret is this: "I have learned there is little I can do in my life that will make me truly happy. I must depend on God to make me happy and meet my needs. When a need arises in my life, I have to trust God to supply according to HIS riches. I have learned most of the time I don't need half of what I think I do. HE has never let me down." Since I learned that Secret I am happy.




Vicki's first thought was, That's too simple! But upon reflecting over her own life she recalled how she thought a bigger house would make her happy -but it didn't! She thought a better-paying job would make her happy -but it hadn't. When did she realize her greatest happiness? Sitting on the floor with her grandchildren, playing games, eating pizza or reading a story, a simple gift from God. Susan knew the secret, Vicki learned the secret, and now you know it too!



We can't depend on people to make us happy. Only GOD in His wisdom can do that. Trust HIM! And now I pass the Secret on to you!




Take Care you all. Hold down the fort until I return.
