My wife Kathy sent me this email that she had written as a reply to a forward, and I thought everyone should read it.
You’ve probably gotten the same gazillions of email forwards about our country, the state of the world and all the evils there in. Everyone seems to have the answer, but instead of using it they just come up with more emails about how bad things are; usually quoting false news stories, made up quotes and out of context statistics.

Okay, so, here’s one of the most confusing things ever: are we supposed to work hard as believers, or do we just totally trust in God and wait to see what He will do?
