    This is something I got from my Daughter-in-love today. It's really good. I am not very good at this copy/paste thing, so I hope you can read it. Hugs! Grannyofalot


    What's in you?
    >THE BIG SQUEEZE
    >
    >There are 5 sponges laying on your kitchen counter top. Each member of
    >your family has been cleaning up different areas of your home, but all
    >the sponges look the same. You are curious as to what was cleaned in
    >your home, but you can't tell by looking...they all look the same...so
    >what do you do?
    >
    >You squeeze each sponge to see what comes out.
    >
    >As you squeeze the first sponge, you see that cola comes out, and so you
    >decide that someone cleaned the kitchen with that one.
    >
    >Upon squeezing the second sponge, you find tub and tile cleaner - that
    >one was used to clean the bathroom.
    >
    >Next, in the third sponge, you find motor oil - hubby was cleaning the
    >garage!
    >
    >In the fourth sponge, baby powder puffs out when it is squeezed - yep,
    >the baby's nursery was done with that one!
    >
    >And finally, in the last one, is floor wax - that was the one you used
    >on the hall floor!
    >
    >As you lay the last one down, you look again at their similarity - and
    >they all look the same until they're squeezed. Christians are the same
    >way. As life squeezes us, different things come out - anger from one, a
    >need for revenge from another, tears from one, remorse from yet another
    >- also greed, untruth, lust - and finally, from one saint, pours forth
    >the love of Christ.
    >
    >Just like the sponge, we can only squeeze out what is put in - stay in
    >the Word daily, and be in continuous prayer, so that when life puts the
    >squeeze on you (and it WILL), Jesus, and Jesus ALONE will shine forth
    >from you!

    Granny,

    That was great! I will pass this on. It is so true.
    Whatever we put in our spirit is what comes out.
    I try to tell my children that about the music, if you put music in that talks of hate you will be hate if you fill it with love you will give out love!

    Thanks and God Bless
