this one day. Something has been on my mind for some time. It's the problem that so many people have in receiving a gift. <BR> I remember a Christmas episode of Big Bang Theory where Sheldon doesn't like gift exchanges because he feels that people need to exchange gifts of similar value. A lot of people have this attitude, that when someone gives them something then they are indebted and expected to reciprocate. ...

I sincerely hope that they don't, it is not my intent to make light of any events. I believe there are some lessons to be learned here and I want to share that. <BR> <BR> Many of us have read testimony books, stories or compilations of stories where people have been faithful to God, they've prayed for a certain thing, and God provided.
