Falling into place or pieces?

It has been a whirl wind in my head these last few weeks.  But I think it is starting to settle down.  I have gone from being elated and convinced a reconcilliation was immanent to nope he will never forgive me enough to love me again.  Luckily my brain has calmed down a bit.  I should say the Lord has calmed me down and given me some peace about the whole thing.  I read exodus 14:14 The Lord Himself will fight for you....more

As Dog Racetracks Close, Where Do All the Greyhounds Go?

Due to changing laws and declining business, at least seven Greyhound race tracks closed their gates in 2009, including several on New Year's Eve. (Between 2002 and 2007, dog racing bets declined 42 percent.) So what's to become of all the unemployed racers?
