My car was stolen today. This is me talking about it and some of the things that the experience has been used to teach me.

first off, thanks for opening yourself up like this and "leading the way" for me to feel comfortable about journaling in the open.

I think you made a pretty solid statement about security-insecurity. But, does that make you happy, I wonder. Just as I exactly wondered if I should keep searching for happiness myself when just a while back I thought I had it all.

When it rains, it pours... or so the saying goes... but a bigger statement for me, although I look at it in times of desperation, is "Satan asked to have you, that he might sift you as wheat". I guess we all know what the answer to that petition was... just like Job himself experienced... everything can be touched, but his life.

And that is the point you yourself have made... for nothing is secure, but the life you have.

Anthony, hang in there... not passively, but actively seeking, and through your search, may others be able to see as well.

I am sorry for what happen to your car and all what they did to it.

You touch a very important point of honesty. It seems to be that some people can care less and think they can make free use of others stuff.

Nonetheless. I am glad that you were not present when they took the car . . . you are much more valuable than it, and you could have been hurt.

That really sucks! I would have freaked out if someone drove away w/ my car.

A few minutes ago, a lady came to my front door to tell me she saw two guys going through my mailbox. I wish I would have caught them (especially on camera). I know it's not the same thing, but I had a similar feeling of being violated when it happend.

Glad you got your car back. Hope it won't cost too much to fix.

Dude...that sucks. Sorry about the whole car thing. One time, I had the mirrors stolen off of my car. That feeling of icky-ness is not fun. Great lesson, though.

Hi Anthony,

I'm watchign this video on the 22, so I guess 10 dayss have passed since this incident.

I think you said it all. I just hope that eerything is better now, and I hope that that feeling of being violated is gone.

I liked very much the part of where is everything going, and the cretanty of things. Wsie thoughts.

I guess we can only live eahc day as it were the last one.

See ya!

Grrr! That's awful! That feeling-- that violated "my stuff got messed up" feeling-- is the pits.

You have the right attitude though; you do have much to be thankful for and you're right: none of it is guaranteed.

I admire your strength and security in your faith, I truly do.
