No matter how hard their lives were THESE PEOPLE GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD OR NATURE EVERY DAY......EVERY DAY.....

F LAROUCHE

Let me tell you a story about people who live on a planet so far far away........SO VERY VERY FAR AWAY............Millions and millions of light years away in a neighboring galaxy......The Andromeda Galaxy,,,,,,,,

The planet is a bit closer to it's star than the Earth is to the Sun.....Because of this it is so unbearably hot on this planet year around....There are no cold winters on this planet.....just scorching hot summers year round.  This planet has little water....no oceans...Just a few large fresh lakes and a few large salty lakes...

The terrrain of this planet is pretty much all desert....You know like Death Valley in California or the Sahara Desert.....There is a little....I mean very little......scrubby sage brush like area in the northern part of the planet....It's slightly cooler here than other parts of the planet....Therefore this is the only area where life can be found......Where animals and......yes....humans....can be found.

Suprisingly the animals in this sage brush  area look almost exactly like our animals here on Earth....Deer and bobcats and cougars  and eagles and trout in the lake and.........the people......just like here on Earth......all races and colors and shapes and sizes.......

But like I said before........as I said before.......life is not easy for people on this planet......It doesn't rain a lot so the large freshwater life giving lake which these people rely on for their existence is getting smaller and smaller.....Because unlike the Earth where fresh water is in so much abundance people on this planet treat their precious water like gold....The people are thirsty all the time......The people here are also hungry all the time because each year there are fewer animals to kill for food and there are fewer places to plant crops due to the lack of water and good soil to grow the crops.....

Also the people live a primitive life,,,,No cars....No  jets....No computers.....No TV.....No refrigerators......No air conditioning......No cell phones........No internet...No rockets blasting off into Outer Space.....No flush toilets....They live in thatched huts or in caves you know like people on Earth did a few thousand years ago.......and some people on Earth still do today......

So yes the people are dying......They are slowly dying of starvation.....They are slowly dying of thirst.......So sadly in a few short  Earth years this plant will be a barren planet.....All life.....because of the lack of food and water......will be extinct.....

BUT DO THESE PEOPLE COMPLAIN ABOUT THEIR CALAMITY?  DO THEY COMPLAIN THAT THEY ARE NOT AS WEALTHY AS THEIR NEIGHBORS?  DO THESE PEOPLE MAKE WAR WITH EACH OTHER?  DO THESE PEOPLE COMPLAIN TO THEIR GOD BECAUSE OF THEIR TOUGH LIVES?

No these people live in total harmony with one another....They have a strong love for one another.....AND THESE PEOPLE.....THAT IS MOST OF THESE PEOPLE.......BELIEVE IN THE SAME GOD THAT YOU AND I BELIEVE IN......WHY?  BECAUSE THIS SAME GOD SENT VISITORS....THAT IS HE SENT PROPHETS TO THIS PLANET JUST LIKE HE SENT PROPHETS TO OUR PLANET TO TALK TO THE PEOPLE ABOUT HIM AND WHY PEOPLE NEED TO BELIEVE IN HIM AND TO LOVE HIM BECAUSE HE WILL DO VERYTHING HE CAN FOR THEM......

Yes the planet is dying and perhaps that is a sign that GOD wants to call the people back to be with HIM for all eternity and YES THERE ARE A FEW PEOPLE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN THIS GOD, THEY BELIEVE IN 'NATURE' JUST LIKE THERE ARE A NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN GOD LIVING ON OUR PLANET.

SO DO YOU KNOW WHAT THESE PEOPLE DO?  BOTH THE RELIGIOUS AND THE NON RELIGIOUS PEOPLE?  THEY GET UP EVERY DAY IN THE MORNING AND SAY "THANK YOU LORD FOR GIVING ME ANOTHER DAY OF LIFE.   I WILL TREAT THIS DAY LIKE IT'S MY LAST AND DO THE BEST I POSSIBLY CAN FOR  YOU" OR THEY WILL SAY "THANK YOU NATURE FOR GIVING ME ANOTHER DAY OF LIFE.  I WILL TREAT THIS DAY LIKE IT'S MY LAST AND DO THE BEST I POSSIBLY CAN FOR YOU."

Yes these people consider EVERY DAY IN THEIR RATHER SHORT LIVES TO BE A GIFT.  NOT SOME FANCY HOUSE. NOT SOME FANCY CAR.  NOT SOME FANCY TOY.  JUST A DAY IN THE LIFE.  WETHER THEY ARE SICK.  WETHER THEY ARE HEALTHY.  WHEN THEY ARE YOUNG. WHEN THEY ARE OLD. WETHER THEY FEEL GOOD OR BAD WHEN THEY GET UP.  THEY SAY THAT PHRASE EVERY MORNING.....EVERY MORNING...... FOR THEIR ENTIRE LIFE.

These people living on this far far away planet will soon be gone....their short civilization just a passing moment in history.....but they leave a legacy that will never be forgotten....A legacy that people here on Earth should emulate.......
