The Boo Hoo's

Just because we get the waa's a little does't mean we need counseling or chemicals to feel better.  Here is a little survey from wmconnect about it.

Uh Oh. Americans Do This 3 Days a Month The average American is "sad, blue, or depressed" about three days a month, according to a survey of 166,000 adults in 38 states conducted between 1995 and 2000 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Ga., reports HealthDayNews. Not surprisingly, the more days each month that a person feels sad, the more likely he or she takes risks, including cigarette smoking, binge drinking, and not wearing seat belts.
 This is the first study ever to examine this type of sadness, which is more along the lines of a bad mood and not a diagnosable mental disorder. Women reported feeling blue 3.5 days a month, compared to men's 2.4 down days. Young adults felt the worst, with 18- and 19-year-olds saying they were sad an average of 3.6 days a month. Some are so depressed they are unable to work or go to school. Meanwhile, college graduates and those who reported an annual household income over $50,000 reported fewer episodes of depression. 

 Why are we so sad? The CDC blames it on lifestyle. "Feeling sad, blue, or depressed three days a month as a result of a stressful life situation is perfectly normal," lead researcher Rosemarie Kobau, a CDC public health analyst, told HealthDayNews. People who regularly exercise and do not smoke reported feeling blue fewer days each month. If you or someone you love feels sad or depressed for more than two weeks a month or loses interest in things that were once enjoyed, it's a sign of a bigger problem for which medical assistance should be sought. 

And to this article I ask What did they do 50 or 100 years ago? They lived with it and got over it.

Now how about the survey that says that Christian nations are the most prosperous nations!

Astounding Benefit of Believing in Hell

 Countries whose citizens believe in hell are not only less corrupt, but also more prosperous. That's the word from economists with the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, who were trying to figure out why some nations are so much richer than others. In addition to looking at productivity and investment factors, they examined some unconventional ideas to explain differences in national prosperity, reports Reuters. It turned out that belief in hell was very telling. 

 Drawing on the research from several outside economists, the St. Louis Fed studied 35 countries, including the United States, European nations, Japan, India, and Turkey and realized that religion was a powerful economic force. "In countries where large percentages of the population believe in hell, there seems to be less corruption and a higher standard of living," the St. Louis Fed wrote in its July quarterly review. In the United States, 71 percent of the population believes in hell. Perhaps it's no coincidence that it also has the world's highest per capita income.  Don't believe it? Look at Ireland. As Reuters says, the Irish have a healthy fear of a nether world with 53 percent of the population acknowledging hell's existence, and the country is not far behind the United States in terms of income.

It is my life

You cannot live my life, I must. You cannot see through my eyes, I must, and you cannot walk in my shoes, I must.  You cannot experience the things I do ; I must, and you all cannot be me; I must be me, in fact there will never be anyone else like me-ever. I would appreciate if if ya'll would stop trying to; it is seriously annoying. Or would you rather I cussed you out like I normally do.

When we accept Jesus as our Savior we are in essence commiting an act of rebellion from our old world sin self and of course our old sin self doesn't like it and fights back.  In some the old self wins but never the less Jesus says we are never lost to him because in that day he will claim us as purchased by his labor of love and sacrificed himself to do so. I  say we were payed for with blood.

Rom 6:20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.

Once we were the slaves of uncleaness but rebelled to follow the path of right-eousness. I hyphinate that word to emphasize the word right in righteousness. For the world is unright we now dwell in right-ness and should not succumb to un-rightness. Fortunately for God's Grace we can repent that is to change our minds into the direction of rightness and must do so most daily.
