Advent Virus- a warning

Advent Virus !!!

 Be on the alert for symptoms of inner HOPE, PEACE, and JOY AND LOVE. The hearts of a great many have already been exposed to this virus and it is possible that people everywhere could come down with it in epidemic proportions. This could pose a serious threat to what has, up to now, been a fairly stable condition of conflict in the world.

  Some signs and symptoms of the Advent Virus:

 * A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on    past  experiences.

* An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.

* A loss of interest in judging other people.

* A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others.

* A loss of interest in conflict.

* A loss of the ability to worry. (This is a very serious symptom.)

* Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation.

* Contented feelings of connectedness with others and nature.

* Frequent attacks of smiling.

* An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen.

* An increased susceptibility to the love extended by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it.

Please send this warning out to all your friends. This virus can and has affected many systems.

Some systems have been completely cleaned out because of it!

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all ( Corinthians 13:13)

                                                          Let this Virus spread  right through the coming year !
