    I can only imagine the humbleness it takes to drop what you have been taught all your life and pick up and take after Him like that. I am not saying that we do not do things like that, but to be....I don't know how to really express it. Joseph (while really a minor part in the whole thing) willingly gave up everything he knew, married a pregnant woman, tended to the birth of his child (which men did not do back then), listened to God when He spoke to him. Moved the family to Egypt when he was told, returned to Nazarath (a backwater town, a crossroad of sin where people would stop briefly), continued on in the craft using the gift that God had given to him to be a carpenter. Protected his family, finally knew his wife and have children of his own. Did what he was called to do (as far as the Biblical account of his life). And yet, I am not even sure if he was alive to see the final fruit, Jesus redeeming mankind from the cross.

    Wow, what a mouthful for me before I really get into working....

    Oh well, time for me to scrub in and get set up for my first case.

    I pray that you all are as blessed today as I am.

    Fantastic loyalty and love and faith that Joseph displayed in the word of God. He waited many months to make love to his wife. What a great guy.

    Enjoying my first cup of coffee. Now just trying to determine if I want to read first then practice, or practice first then read.

    Just about done with my morning coffee...............
    Last night, I dreamt that three bald ducks came into my room and started pecking at my pillows because they wanted their feathers back.

    Re: The BATTLE for the first post - Renewed and Refreshed Edition.

    Today I was walking home from town, when I was confronted by the same beggar who always comes and asks me for money. I have tried to help him before and he has sort of listened but he still calls to me every time he sees me so today I just lost it and shouted at him before he even got to me. Shame, I was just not in a very giving mood at that point

    I've done and felt this way in the past... God was good in that He led me to a song that helped me.

    Re: The BATTLE for the first post - Renewed and Refreshed Edition.

    I am a qualified social worker, and I try very hard to do whatever I can to help the people I see around me. But I also know that there those who abuse my compassion and I feel like at some point I have to protect myself from being manipulated because of my desire to help. So I really love this song because I see it as an encouragement to go on doing this
