"Nothing of any value ever happens without a cost." -- Bill Kraski
Yeah, I know. Quoting myself seems egotistical. But it's not. I quote a lot of people in my posts. And I give credit where it's due. I could have credited that to God. It's a thought He gave me while I was watching a rerun of "Madame Secretary" on Christmas Eve. But, unlike some of the charlatans out there, I don't like claiming some special connection to God. I believe we all have that possibility, as long as we're saved. But it takes the rest of our lives keeping a path cleared through the muck we spend our Christian lives removing. And most of us, myself included, aren't spectacularly good at clearing the way. So, those thoughts don't necessarily show up very regularly. I'll explain after the break, including how it all fits together.
