Sometimes we just need to be reminded!

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.

He 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 worthless.

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 special

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 ....

professionals built the Titanic.

If God brings you to
it - He will bring you through it.
