It's not superstition to me. I've been abused and I allowed the Lord to work in my life, make sense of it all and I have turned it around so that I am a asset to society. The Lord says that we can comfort others by the way we were comforted by Him. My life would have no meaning without His love in my life.

I agree with you Shannon - if you allow it, you can take a bad experience and use it for good. A wise preacher once told me that you can take a situation and let it make you bitter or better. I choose the better part.
