Good luck.. I know several people trying to sell, it is just a rough market. I think things will improve in the spring, some companies need a quarter or 2 under their belts.

This is just bitter.. there is a lot of power in prayer.. whether you are religious or not. Again.. no one shoudl ever say.. don't be practical and put effort out, but in addition to prayer, well wishes, positive thinking, mental states can improve. What else can we say.. Hey your right.. let me buy your house and give you a job. She was venting, we were consuling. Lets not grab a positive comment and derail this thread just because you are so against what the majority of the world believes in.

On the contrary, it's easiest to say when I do feel the pain.

Listen, my point is to just say its not always easy to "have faith" when things aren't going well. The LAST THING Last thing I want to do is get into a religious argument...believe me.

Pray don't pray, ..who cares, its your choice.

I don't mean to be cynical - or maybe I do - but I find it hard to believe that you didn't want to get into an argument about prayer. If you know this board at all, you know that what you said is fighting words!

Cripes.... I am sorry I made this point as it was meant to come across in a way that did not cross religious lines. My point was to say it is easy to say hang in there when you aren't the one suffering. That was all I was trying to say. In all honestly though why are we arguing religion here? If you need to defend any argument against your religion you need to look within yourself and figure out how much confidence you really have in what you believe. That is for another forum though I guess.
