Did everyone have a great summer?

Hi Everyone,

My last appearance was June 22nd as summer dawned on us.Well that was a disappointment as most of the summer it rained here in the greater Toronto area.We've already had our 1 week of indian summer it seems but we all have hopes that October will bring us some nice warm days before winter sets in.
I received a very touching story from a friend of ours who is an amazing Elvis impersonator.If you close your eyes you would think the real Elvis was singing to you!Having a young 3 year old boy I went through many emotions in reading this short story.The message is powerful and I hope all that read this will pass it on.


While a man was polishing his new car, his 4 yr old son picked up a stone and scratched lines on the side of the car. In anger, the man took the child's hand and hit it many times; not realizing he was using a wrench.At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures. When the child saw his father.....with painful eyes he asked, 'Dad when will my fingers grow back?'The man was so hurt and speechless; he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times. Devastated by his own actions ...sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches; the child had written 'LOVE YOU DAD'.
The next day that man committed suicide. . .. Anger and Love have no limits; choose the latter to have a beautiful, lovely life..... Things are to be used and people are to be loved, But the problem in today's world is that people are used and things are loved...Be sure to keep this thought in mind:
Things are to be used, but People are to be loved ... Be yourself....This is the only day we HAVE.
Have a nice day. Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits they become character; Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.I'm glad a friend forwarded this to me as a reminder..If you don't pass this on to anybody, nothing bad will happen; if you do, you will have ministered to someone.Stay FAITHFUL and Be GRATEFUL
