Once there was an old man, who went down to the seashore every morning.
The tide would wash up hundreds of starfish, who lay there dying on the sand.
Each day, whatever the weather, and however weary the old man was, he would go down to the beach and throw the starfish back into the ocean.
One day a young boy , who had witnessed his devotion , came up and asked him, " Sir, why do you do this, don't you know there will be hundreds more tomorrow?"
The old man looked up, with tearful eyes, "of course I know, that's why I come."
"but Sir, isn't that all a little pointless?", laughed the boy, thinking the old man was a fool.
The old man looked out at the Sea, and up to the Heavens, then answered.
" Ask the ones who Live."
'and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.' Jesus.
I love The Lord,with all my heart, and am nothing,and have nothing, without Him.
