Imagine, if you will, that you are in a lifeboat with many other people. The boat is slowly filling with water and you are furiously bailing the water out of the vessel. You notice that it makes no difference how frequently or ferociously you bail, the water level is always the same and you fear that if you stop to rest the boat will capsize. That is when you look around to see that for every bucket you throw out of the boat someone else on board scoops up and pours back into the boat.
That is my life.
I know many of you are in the same boat, as it were and I can offer no other words of encouragement than; out there in the dark waters, drifting aimlessly and trying to keep people alive is someone just like you and all they want if for someone to occasionally throw a bucket of water away!
