    Good Job Bobby!
    My recent myo fascial release practitioner has brought my pain down 50%. Another 20 and I could stand to start really working out to rebuild. You are my inspiration today.:)

    Just a suggestion here. Read What God Said by Neale Donald Walsch. You can get it used on amazon. Or, at least watch a few of his interviews on youtube. It can help.

    The way I deal with with everything about passing away is that every human has an expiration date so let's do things that matter while we've here.:D

    Thanks Mary, what it would take is a Real Visit from a SuperPower....my good friend is hanging on to Javoah, she left the God theory very early in her childhhood...she gets what she needs at Kingdom Hall meetings.

    I have had a pretty blessed life, but a few things have changed the direction things went. Loss of both parents in childhood was #1. The Vietnam War was #2. Meeting and marrying my wonderful wife of 46 years (so far) was #3. The birth of our 6 children added to the numbers, and, finally, moving to Alaska probably will be the last.

    I consider my life pretty blessed, but purposely chose 1 husband and 1 child. Only marriage was a SHOCK when it ended and I had no desire to do it again. The man I married was allegedly the best, full of god stuff and religion and what a shocker when he got hooked in by a secretary..... Lots of BF's but no license again. Maybe 2 kids would have been nice, but I'll never know.

    Not pushing but this is not a 'religious' guy. He finds God in all of us. I don't do organized religion myself for some of the same reasons as you. If God is in you, the answer is too?

    The man Neale Donald Walsch is on your tube. Maybe you could go and watch some of his interviews to understand his views on God.
    Maybe I could find one to put on here. But I don't want to be preachy.
    He says we were never actually separated from God and we are all part of God and each other. We can have a wonderful relationship with him and each other and that is the way it should be.
    Good and bad are not opposites but on a line--a continuum. and he explains it.
    I have to keep reading my book of his over and over.

    Oh the catholic church preached when I was growing up, god is everywhere, we are all in the likeness of god, now proof of a god????

    If a god is me or in me, I'm making some not good decisions, I believe...but we don't know outcomes until all is said and done. I rant/vent about my surgery outcome. the doctor god goofed up.
