      Now reflecting back even is going good. Jesus has been there the whole time molding me for what lies ahead. I am happy!

      You are probably right! Thanks for the comment, I wasn't in the best mood that day, but it got my point across.

      Man, you need to get a life! Pardon the pun. It probably wasn't in very good taste. I really did relate, but as I've gotten older, I've discovered life has a lot more to offer.

      Well expressed.

      Thanks! It was a tired moment late last night. I was wondering how it would go over.
