The G Word

I don't ever really talk about religion or God or spiritual stuff, in fact I probably never have on this blog.  But nonetheless I have a really strong belief in God and it's probably important to note that.  I wouldn't still be here if I didn't have that faith in life.  I know some people ask me how that is possible, having CF, a transplant, needing another, losing my can I possibly believe there is a God when I've had to live through all that, and I can't really tell you that there is any secret, I just do.  In fact a friend of mine gave me a chain with a cross on it recently and the reason for giving it was that (she) saw me once pick up a cross from the ground in a parking lot and keep it so (she) wanted to give me my own.

Well, this picture today really struck me.  I'm sure a lot of you have heard about the little eleven year old boy that was stuck under a rip current for 20 minutes and survived.  Well these are his friends praying for him while they were searching for him and this picture just really moved me a lot today.  I don't push God or religion on anyone -- to each their own, I make no judgments, but I hope this picture touches you guys too.
