Life Just Isn't
(Author Unknown)

Life isn't about keeping score. It's not about how many people call you, and it's not about who you've dated, are dating or haven't dated at all.

It isn't about who you've kissed, what sport you play, or which guy or girl likes you. It's not about your shoes or your hair or the color of your skin or where you live or go to school. In fact, it's not about grades, money, clothes or colleges that accept you or not.

Life isn't about if you have lots of friends, or if you are alone, and it's not about how accepted or not accepted you are. Life just isn't about that.

But life is about who you love and who you hurt. It's about how you feel about yourself. It's about trust, happiness and compassion. It's about sticking up for your friends and replacing inner hate with love.

Life is about avoiding jealousy, overcoming ignorance and building confidence. It's about what you say and what you mean. It's about seeing people for who they are and not what they have.

Most of all, life is about choosing to use your life to touch someone else's in a way that could never have been achieved otherwise. These choices are what life's about.

Pastor's Quote of the Week
************************
The weak indulge in resolutions, but the strong act. Life is but a day's work — do it well. The act is ours; the consequences God's.

(From: The Urantia Book - Paper-48 Section-7)

The Prayer

Dear God,        
        Without You, Life Truly Isn't.

You ALL are Within the Infinitely Loving Embrace of our Universal Parent,

The Creator's Eternal Love to all of You,
Pastor Daniel
