Thanks for this "liftup"! What doesnt kill you makes you stronger and the enemy is a good teacher.

The story behind the story

Uri's insight about the Colorado Rockies tragedy (see comments above)adds a whole other dimension to this: see www-cbsnews-com/stories/2007/07/23/national/main3087644.shtml

SO MUCH TO LEARN AT THE END

I have lost so many things in my life. Friends,loved ones in general, money, my bussines; All that brought a dark cloud of insecuretness to my daily activities. I took me years to understand that I had acquired the ability to help others by just listen to their problems and be there for them in their hard moments. I simply developed a sort of "soft place to fall"
image that allowed me to realize how HaShem turn any bad sitiuation into an exciting opportunity to help others.

Thankyou for this truth. I was feeling rejected because some paintings of mine were not juried into an art show. To top it off my friend won first place today. I asked God to make my wound better because I was very hurt. There was the answer ,I never thought of defeat this way.
