  "The $20 Dollar Bill"   

A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill.
In the room of 200, he asked, "Who
would like this $20 bill?" Hands started going up.

He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you but
first, let me do this." He proceeded to crumple the $20
dollar bill up. He then asked, "Who still wants it?" Still
the hands were up in the air.

"Well," he replied, "What if I do this?" And he dropped
it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with
his shoe. He picked it up,  now all crumpled and dirty.
"Now who still wants it?" Still the hands went into the air.

"My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson" !

No matter what  I did to the money, you still wanted it
because it did not decrease in value.  It was still worth

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and
ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the
circumstances that come our way. We feel as though
we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or
what will happen, you will never lose your value in
God's eyes. To Him, dirty or clean, crumpled or finely
creased, you are still priceless to Him.

THOUGHT: The worth of our lives come not in what
we do or who we are but by What we become and Whome
we have touched along the Journey thru Life.

You are special - Don't ever forget it!  You never know
who is watching you and what impression you have made
on thier lives.

Remember to train hard, and do your best achieve and
share all that is possible within your abilities.  Strive
for continual progress and remain humble no matter how
much you achieve.
