this is from the church paper-


"A little boy and his father were walking on the mountain, Suddenly , his son falls, hurts himself: and screams:"AAAhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!" To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating somewhere in the mountain:"AAAAhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!" Curious, the little boy yells:

"Who are you ?" He receives the answer:"Who are you?"

And the the boy screams to the mountain: "You are stupid!" The voice answer: "You are stupid!"

Frustrated at the responce, the little boy screams: "I hate you!"

He recieves the answer: "I hate you!"

He looks to his father and asks: "What's going on ?" The father smiles and says: " My son, pay attention.

The man screams "You are a champion!" and the voice answers back,

"You are a Champion!"

The boy is surprised, but does not understand.

then the father explains: "People call this an ECHO, but really this is life, It gives you back everything, you say or do. Our life is simply a reflection of our actions.

If you want more love in the world , create more love in your heart. If you want people to respect you, respectthem. This relationship applies to everthing, in all aspects of life L ife will give you back everything you have given to it

I don't know if saw my response on Don's blog or not. Sunday went pretty well. My first sermon on abortion. Lots of reading and research. About 1/3 way through my computer crashed. Never happened before. It shook me for a few moments but recovered quickly. I am glad that I had my notes with me.
Thanks for caring.
