Good morning Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. Folks tend to complain about the bad times but forget to be thankful in the good times. We are pretty much going to have to go through many ups and downs. I know that I have, having survived many ailments in my life. I am reminded that Job probably went through more than most. He never gave up nor did he deny God. That is what I believe to be the most important. I know that God brought me through the rough times. I will never deny God. Will you?
