The CROSS

       A young man was at the end of his rope, 
 seeing no way out, he dropped to his knees in prayer

 "Lord, I can't go on," he said. "I have too 
 heavy a cross to bear."

 The Lord replied, "My son, if you can't 
 bear its weight, just place your cross inside this room.

Then, open that other door and pick out any 
 cross you wish."

 The man was filled with relief and said, 
 "Thank you Lord," and he did as he was told.

Upon entering the other room, he saw many 
 crosses; some so large the tops were not visible. Then, he spotted a tiny cross leaning against a far wall.

"I'd like that one, Lord," he whispered. 
 The Lord replied, "My son, that is the cross you just brought in."

When life's problems seem overwhelming, it 
 helps to look around and see what other people are coping with. 
You may  consider yourself far more fortunate than you imagined.

                                YOUR CROSS

                                Whatever your cross
                                Whatever your pain
                                There will always be sunshine
                                After the rain

                                Perhaps you may stumble
                                Perhaps even fall
                                But God's always there
                                To help you through it all

Funny how you can send a thousand "jokes" 
 through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about passing it on.

Funny, isn't it, when you go to forward 
 this message, how many on your buddy list will not receive it because you're not sure they believe in anything?

    Funny? No!   Sad, and thought-provoking...

May God give you the strength and courage 
 to pass this along to everyone on your email buddy list....
