Adversity,what's that?

  One of the key things we face,as families,is adversity. The loss of a job,overdue mortgages,petty little nuisances that tend to get overblown.

  Let's get real! Their will always be other jobs,they might be a while in coming but opportunity will eventually come. The mortgage, well that's a different subject.....ever heard of a financial advisor?

 Point being, it's human nature to blow things out of proportion. The little things in life we tend to make big and vice-versa. When the real storms in life come,though,most people run for cover. They seek higher ground,or to be more precise,a Higher Power...they seek God.

 On March 24,1986...Kyle Maynard was born. You may not know who Kyle is now,but,I guarantee that you'll never forget after hearing his true story.

 When Kyle was born he ha congenital amputation. To put it to where even I could understand it,Kyle was born with stubs for arms and legs, Going through life "special" was something Kyles parents found as a blessing.

 His dad,Scott,told Larry King during a 2004 interview "Kyle has touched more people than you or I ever will. He has always believed that this was Gods will."

 When Kyle was in high-school,he compiled a 35-16 win-loss record on,you guessed it...the wrestling team his senior year.

 Carrying that love of wrestling over into college he wrestled for the University of Georgia.  Mixed-Martial Arts (MMA) was us ultimate goal. who's to say that he wouldn't reach that goal.

 On April 25,2009,Kyle made his MMA debut losing a 30-27 majority decision to Bryan Fry in
Auburn,Alabama. The point is:he tried.

 Not being afraid to face whatever life throws at us,Kyle is a true inspiration to millions of people.

 The next time a petty nuisance comes our way,it would serve us all well to follow the example of Kyle Maynard....."Just Do It".

Truth is a 30-27 decision is a victory for this guy! He did not get knocked out! Paul writes 2 Corinthians 4: 8-9
‘We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.’
