Yes dear. It is hard giving up Santy and the Easter Bun-Bun, but you'll be ok.
We all feel very very very sorry for you, poor thing.
Now run out and play.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Some people really don't get it, I guess. Undecided

Life is here .... NOW.
If you really want to live fully, you might have to work to get there ... but since working toward progress is part of it... the small accomplishments add up to really living well.

A new type of thinking is essential if mankind is to survive and move to higher levels. ~ Albert Einstein

People who talk about being blessed for being successful are bragging on two fronts. Basically saying "I got more stuff than you AND I am a better Christian that you."

RE: People with nice lives who think they're blessed
I've seen many theists thank god for food, water, a home, their job etc.

Shouldn't they really just be thanking him for being born in a developed country and not the third world?

Cos that's the only reason you've got all that stuff.
