That is so interesting! My son was asked in Confirmation class "If you met Jesus today, what job would he be doing?"
The answers were predictable: Priest, psychologist, counselor, nurse, doctor. His teacher showed me Dave''s answer:
You see, Jesus would go from house to house picking up all the garbage we accumulate every day and just cart it away. We only have to leave it on the curb and for the most part, we wouldn't even know he'd been by, except all our garbage was gone. And better yet, He'll be around the next time we have a lot of garbage to get rid of.
My kid is pretty smart.
Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible and suddenly you will be doing the impossible -- St Francis of Assisi
IAJOEB, I placed your son and family on my list... I pray Tiger grows into not only a God fearing man, but one who truly loves Him!
Step into the unknown with confidence! Trust that in the darkness of that first step there will either be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly! Nothing tastes as good as living with less pain feels!

This is so great. I my son should be getting his foster son "Tiger" to take home tomorrow. He was born the end of November, will continue to be a fragile premature child. But my son and his wife will love him. Please if it is God's will, let them raise him to be a God fearing man.

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped
out of a parking space right in front of us.
My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us.
My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really friendly. So I asked, 'Why did you just do that?
This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!'
This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call,
'The Law of the Garbage Truck.'
He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment.
As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you.
Don't take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on.
Don't take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.
The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day.
Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so. . . Love the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don't. Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!
