Sometimes life seems hard to bear,
Full of sorrow, trouble, and woe.
It's then I have to remember
That its in the valleys I grow.
If I always stayed on the mountain top
And never experienced pain,
I would never appreciate God's love
And would be living in vain.
I have so much to learn,
And my growth is very slow.
Sometimes I need the mountain tops,
But ifs in the valleys I grow.
I do not always understand
Why things happen as they do,
But I am very sure of one thing:
My Lord will see me through.
My little valleys are nothing
When I picture Christ on the cross.
He went through the valley of death;
His victory was Satan's loss.
Forgive me Lord, for complaining,
When I'm feeling so very low.
Just give me a gentle reminder,
That it's in the valleys I grow.
Continue to strengthen me, Lord
And use my life each day,
To share your love with others
And help them find their way.
Thank you for valleys, Lord,
For this one thing I know:
The mountain tops are glorious,
But it's in the valleys I grow!
(2) When the standard of DRESS is lowered ... then the standard of CONDUCT is also lowered.
(3) When the standard of CONDUCT is lowered ... the sense of value in God's TRUTH is lowered.
(4) When the standard of God's TRUTH is lowered . . . then we have SPIRITUAL ANARCHY!
Number of gun owners in the US = 80,000,000 Number of accidental gun deaths per year = 1,500 (all age groups). Accidental deaths per gun owner = 0.0000188 (U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms).
Therefore, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.
