Every dollar tells a story...

In December 1999, a Missouri artist Dean Bracy, circulated 10,000 new one-dollar bills carrying his handwritten, "Where does a dollar go? Send me a postcard!" including his address. What began as a quest for creating several works of art from the collected postcards, had turned into a chance of sharing of amazing stories about many people. Before long, travel, brochures, maps, menus, bumper stickers, baseball cards, etc, showed up. People detailed their lives, politics and towns. Bracy's dollars have turned up at the scene of crime, as a gift to a newborn and in the garter of an exotic dancer. A father whose son just passed away asked, "Would you be so kind as to use this postcard in your project as a memorial to our son?" (Reader's Digest 0304) If a thing like one-dollar bill has a story, moreover each and everyone of us. No life is too trivial to live for, every presence on earth has a meaning. God takes record of us, every inch of our life story. God orchestrates everything to be a wonderful music. Ask Him to help you see it from His eyes, you will see how wonderful your presence be! Do you think your life is meaningless? Quit that thinking. You are worthy.

I find Dean Bracy idea fantastic.Once when I was 17 I went holiday at one Greek island.I wrote up to all money that i spend my name and the date,I had the hope one of them will come back to my hand again......not luck of course! Now about the life I,i never didn't thought my life as meaningless,for each one of us there is a reason the God gave us the gift to come at this life.i don't mean only us the ppeople...every kind of life at this earth priceless.

Dear Aidonia, Perhaps if you put an intriquing question asking for response from the people who receives your money, you might get response like Dean Bracy...=D It's great if you have never thought of your life as meaningless. I am not like you. Although I know from the Scriptures that my life is never meaningless in the eyes of my wonderful Creator, yet from times to times life can somehow brings me down and make me lose sight of God. That is why I understand why life seems so hard to go through for many of us. But it is God who never loses His sight and hold of me. That is what keeps me going and meaning of life until one day when my time has finally come to meet Him face to face...=)
