I am Second

These videos speak to me on so many levels! Professional athletes aren't always the most humble of people! I understand how easy it is to get caught up in the idea of "How Great You Are"! When people are impressed by what you can do physically and give you praise for it, it can really feed your ego! I constantly have to be reminded that it isn't about me!

I watched the video as I was drinking my morning coffee and reflecting on my life. I am amazed how God brings inspiration and learning opportunities just when you need them. All you have to do is open your heart…Thank you for helping to remind me that God has a purpose for us.

Such a touching story. I wish more people could realize that having God in your life is not a bad thing. For some it takes tragedy to renew their faith in God, in themselves & in others. If you've never read the book "Have A Little Faith" by Mitch Albom. I would highly suggest it. Have a Little Faith is a book about a life’s purpose; about losing belief and finding it again; about the divine spark inside us all. It is one man’s journey, but it is everyone’s story. The book truely touched me. Now that we are in the season of Easter hopefully those who need God most will find their way back to him or discover him if never having had him as a part of their lives. I can't imagine my life without God. For all the things we choose to believe in I'm always amazed how difficult it is for some to not believe in God, in themselves or in others. There's a poignant point in the book where a doctor loses his brother to cancer. He is torn because he cannot blame God for his brother's death(because he is atheist)& blames himself becuase he is an oncologist who couldn't save his brother from his illness. Like I said, it's a wonderful read that most could finish in a day. Thanks for the post...I truely enjoyed it. Peace be with you...have a wondeful Easter.

Here's a great video w/ Mitch Albom himself speaking about this book & why he wrote the book. He even reads a few pages from the beginning of the book.
