    Smile America NEEDED a Miracle - They're alive

    From the moment I heard the news, I prepared myself for the worst and prayed to God to let the 9 miners be found alive and well. It just seemed too much to ask for these days. Even the priest that was arrested in Toronto was from MY church.

    My faith in God is restored this Sunday morning. America NEEDED this miracle, and He listened.

    The lowest ebb is the turn of the tide.......

    My best regards,

    Thoses are some tough ass men , they probably would have made it a week. Some say they will still return to the mine. Brings a tear to the eye.

    I didn't want to preach, but this whole incident made me think about the value of a human life. A comment was made to me stating "What are you so upset about. They're their just miners." Yeah, and they just set an example for the entire nation to follow - "America's new heroes" is what the news is touting them today.

    Yeah, they're just miners, and when I grow up, I want to be just like THEM.

    I was watching Fox News coverage last night. I cannot even begin to imagine what the miners and their families were going through. Thank God they were rescued and were found to be in relatively good shape.

    I found myself going to the News every 15 minutes or so when they were found believe it or not BBC had the “Good” News before CNN did, They are indeed a Tough Lot! And God Bless.
