70 X 7

70 X 7 =

a) 490

b) 7

c) infinitely


I am grateful that the correct answer is (c) infinitely.

I'm sure there are a few of you that wonder where I got my math skills with that answer. I get it from my favorite inspirational book where The Teacher answers his most loved students question: "Sir, how often should I forgive a brother who sins against me? Seven times?" And The Teacher replyed "seventy times seven".

You can replace the word sin with wronged me and the word brother with friend, family member, co-worker, boss, or even myself. The advice stands just as strong.

Related advice from the same book says “Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness that God requires”

I am grateful that I'm not the angry young man that I once was and I am equally grateful that many people along the way (especially when I was an angry young man) knew this wisdom when dealing with me in the past.

Computer Tech… sometimes it's so easy

Surgery Postponed *#!! &+!!
It's my own darn fault but I'm still mad at the Surgeon and her staff. Surgery was supposed to be Friday but now I've got to wait an additional week because lost in the multi-page directions of "prior to surgery" was a note that I should… more
