Story of Heaven and Hell

I heard this story a long time ago about heaven and hell.  A man went to hell with the devil.  There were all of these banquet tables filled with culinary delights, tasty treats, but the people milling around were emaciated and bony looking.  They had their elbows straightened out and couldn't bend them, so they couldn't get the food to their mouths.

Then the man goes to heaven with St. Peter. Again he sees all of the banquet tables filled heaping with excellent morsels. Food in every color and flavor. Mmmmm!  Again the peopl were milling around but they were healthy looking, fat and sassy.  Also their elbows were straightened out and they couldn't bend them either.  The man asks St. Peter what the difference was between heaven and hell. He said,"Well here the people serve each other so they can eat all they want!"

Think about it.  Whom have you served today? Take the extra time to say something nice to the checkout guy or girl!

the devils greatest weapon against us is sin he'll use sin or temptation to lose our connection to god.So if you have caused a sin pray for forgiveness and forgive anyone who has hurt you in the past dont use hatred I have forgiven the every single person that has ever hurt me in the past I dont want to waste my energy on hatred or revenge.

Great words of wisdom,,,love and light mary
