    The following is a forwarded message through my email and just copied and pasted here that others may find meaning in it:

    Don't give up.....

    One day I decided to quit...
    I quit my job, my relationship, my spirituality... I wanted to quit
    I went to the woods to have one last talk with God.

    "God", I asked, "Can you give me one good reason not to quit?"
    His answer surprised me...
    "Look around", He said. "Do you see the fern and the bamboo?"

    "Yes", I replied.
    "When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care

    I gave them light.

    I gave them water.

    The fern quickly grew from the earth.

    Its brilliant green covered the floor.

    Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the
    In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful.
    And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on
    bamboo. He said.
    "In year three there was still nothing from the bamboo seed.

    But I would not quit.
    In year four, again, there was nothing from the bamboo seed. I
    not quit." He said.
    "Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth.
    to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant...But just 6
    months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall.
    It had spent the five years growing roots. Those roots made it strong
    gave it what it needed to survive.
    I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not
    He asked me. "Did you know, my child, that all this time you have
    struggling, you have actually been growing roots".

    "I would not quit on the bamboo.

    I will never quit on you."
    "Don't compare yourself to others."

    He said.

    "The bamboo had adifferent Purpose than the fern.

    Yet they both make the forest beautiful."
    "Your time will come", God said to me.

    "You will rise high"
    "How high should I rise?"

    I asked.
    "How high will the bamboo rise?" He asked in return.
    "As high as it can?" I questioned.
    "Yes." He said, "Give me glory by rising as high as you can."
    I left the forest and brought back this story.

    I hope these words can help you see that God will never give up on
    Never, Never, Never Give up.
    For the Christian Prayer is not an option but an opportunity.
    Don't tell the Lord how big the problem is,
    tell the problem how Great the Lord is!

    Heavens door opened this morning, God asked me... My CHILD...
    what can I do for you?" and I said "Protect and bless the one reading
    God smiled and answered ... "request granted ............"

    This message is now in your hands.
    What will YOU do with it?

    send this to at least 10 people so they too will have their

    lives in God's hands
    You never know when GOD is going to bless you!! Good things happen
    you least expect them to !!!!!!!!
