I saw this question asked this morning in an email. What answers run through your mind when you see this question? It just got me to thinking about what answers I have. What are your answers?

Because someone or something that has created me wants me alive, I still have my uses, therefore I am still kept alive, obviously I am going to make an impact on other people's lives and I still have things to do, it's like the seven tasks of Hercules he was set the tasks to do, I still have tasks to perform before I die, therefore until I have completed what I have been put on this good earth to do I carry on living, whether I finish those tasks in a week, a month, a year, a decade, obviously whoever created me still needs me in this world.

You always help people here with your wonderful advice and because you are a good listner and friend. You are there when the chips are down and encouraging. Those are qualities that help the world to be a better place.

But aren't you and other friends always there for me? That is what friendship is all about, it's a two way thing ;0)

The Bible says that the Lord chooses the times and the places in which we live. In other words, I was born for such a time as this! Personally, as a Christian, I know that the purpose of my life is to glorify God in all that I do. Am I always doing that? No. Many times I am a big flop! But I will continue to press on to see what it is that He has in mind for me. I will seek to be obedient to His will and not my own.

I wish I knew. But I do know what keeps me going right now and it's my kids.

I beleive my purpose in life is to help guide young chidren be a voice of reason and provide resources for them. Many say I should go into social work, or human services, but in my heart body and soul I believe i am suppose to advocate a shelter for homeless, young kids, homeless mothers or child. I feel I should give back to the community..
