honest but random

silly cartoon

If you send me an email that has been forwarded more than once, I will delete it without opening it.
If you send me an email that asks me to send it back to you or to forward it to anyone else, I will delete it without reading any more of it than necessary.
Just thought I'd let you know.

Today, I can take comfort in knowing that I don't have the power to ruin God's plans.

Thirty-six years of puffing away; first on Salems (22 years) and then Marlboro Lights (14 years). I averaged about 50 cigarettes during each of those 13,000 days. This is my twelfth day of being a nonsmoker. This whole experience has been a pleasant and unexpected surprise. I shouldn't be too surprised because the book I read said it would be just this way. But, who actually believes what they read?
I have a friend who I've been taking to AA meetings for the past 3 weeks. He's still drinking. His life is quickly spiralling out of control. I gave him a Big Book (Alcoholics Anonymous) the first week. He's yet to open it as I am sure he's afraid some of it might rub off.

Pray for a good harvest, but keep on plowing.

I delete those E-mails too.


Way to go with not smoking bro. I am still so proud of you and jealous at the same time. I just can't do it right now.
I know you are a good friend and hopefully your friend will open that book up soon.
I see you,

Quitting smoking is definitely worth it! I've got eight months away from smokes and I'm very thankful :)

Keep up the good work in all the ways you're doing it dAAve...
