Sometimes we just need to be reminded!

Sometimes we just need to be


A well-known speaker

started off his seminar by:

holding up a $20.00

bill. In the room of 200, he asked,
"Who would like this

$20 bill?"

Hands started going up.

He said, "I am going to give this

$20 to one of you

but first, let me

do this.

proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill.

He then asked, "Who

still wants it?"

Still the hands

were up in the air.

Well, he

replied, "What if I do this?"

And he

dropped it on the ground

and started

to grind it into the floor with his shoe.

He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty.

"Now, who still wants it?"

Still the hands went into the air.

My friends, we have all learned a

very valuable lesson.

No matter what

I did to the money, you still wanted it

because it did not decrease in value.

It was still worth $20.

Many times in our lives,

we are dropped, crumpled, and ground

into the dirt

by the decisions we

make and

the circumstances that come

our way.

We feel as though we are


But no matter what has

happened or

what will happen, you

will never lose your value.

Dirty or

clean, crumpled or finely creased,

you are still

priceless to those who DO LOVE you.

The worth of our

lives comes not in what we do or who we know,

but by WHO WE ARE and


You are



Don't EVER forget it."

If you do not pass

this on, you may never know the

lives it touches, the

hurting hearts it speaks to,

or the hope that it

can bring.

Count your blessings,

not your problems.

"And remember:

amateurs built the ark ..


built the Titanic.

If God brings you to

it - He will bring you through it.
