I don't much believe in miracles but I suppose that coming home alive and in one piece from the green hell was a miracle of sorts.
After you posted something about the "green hell" previously I read a bit about it. My dad had some friends who were there. One never spoke of his experiences. The other told some incredible stories. Unfortunately they both passed.
For what it's worth, thank you for your service. I often wonder how I would dealt with being on a tour with combat. I think I would have faired poorly. I don't know how people don't just crack under such prolonged and extreme stress.
I was there for nine years. Unfortunately? My brother went MIA in 1968.
I'm so sorry, Rooster.
That is terrible. Sorry for your loss.
Rooster, I’m so sorry for your loss!
I'm so very sorry to hear that.
So sorry to hear about your brother. Call me crazy but I do believe in miracles. never give up.
I want to thank you for your service to our country. You're the best!
If I’m reading that correctly thank you for your service. By all means it was a miracle.
If everything is a miracle then nothing is miraculous. So both statements mean the same thing. That Einstein was a funny guy! :)
Kind of like Yogi Berra, but smarter. :)
Not true, my friend...not true. Everything is a miracle. Think back, remember how totally awesome things were when you were 5, or 10? Ya just gotta get that mindset back.
Sometimes it's really easy, like the day we were welding and a spider sac hanging off the handle on the welder just bloomed into life right at the moment we stopped and raised our helmets. I mean hundreds of little baby spiders being born all at once. It looked like a flower blooming in fast forward. I know most people hate spiders, and one nearly killed me once...but that was a thing of beauty. Nature is truly amazing.
Or take a Saturday afternoon and have a potato gun competition. Whoa...a little 2" and 3" PVC and some Aqua Net...and the taters are flying over the cottonwood tree out back! And who knows, maybe it'll lead to creative ways of blowing things up.
We don't really lose that sense of wonder...we give it up so we can be all grown up...but it still lives inside us, and we can bring it out to play whenever we want. 🙃
I love your comment Boz and agree 100%.
People become jaded, take things for granted. Yesterday was the first day of Spring. In a few more weeks the miracle of Spring will be in full force and bring jaw dropping beauty once again.
So, between the two choices, I'm leaning way heavy toward miracles.
Bud I agree completely with your comment. People do take things for granted and what a shame it is. Miracles happen every day! I believe!
Thank you, Bud.
That indeed he was! Wonder if eccentric would be appropriate
For some reason I was not able to post this to the posting so I will add it here....
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle .
Anything having to do with life is special. Thank you JD!
What, you can watch it from the baby's viewpoint these days? I thought that was merely theoretical.
I don't believe in miracles either, but I have had many wonderful spiritual experiences.
We have all experienced something in life but no matter what it’s called I’m happy to had had the experience. Thank you Phil!
Thank for that!
Mostly... Did I catch an STD and did I leave the stove on? Sometimes, how many shots have I fired, since I can't count?
I've led my life in an honest respectable way. And so far it's worked for me.
That’s all we can do yet we are only human. Thank you Starz!
I don't view things as miraculous - not in the biblical sense - but awesome, inexplicable, surely.
Everyone has thier own views on things which I like to read and appreciate others views, so thank you for sharing yours..
Glad I took part in it... it showed an interesting mix of people's thoughts on the issue :)
Thank you! I was looking for something different (out of the ordinary) politics is full of anger and hatred so if I can find ways to direct a more positive posting without all the BS then I will. If I see anything on any of my post that reflect any negativity that does not have anything to do with the post or if politics is added I will block immediately, some have found that out. A lot of hatred going on right now so we need good things, not to say I don’t have my own opinion on a lot of issues because I do and they will come out.
QCD crystal lattice permeate gluon wave from one crystal to another to simulate molecular quarks in atom bomb does it simulate sample universe or universe as a whole...
Biblical God blesses America...
think i'll have a coffee and ponder that one
