99 balloons : insert tears here

Eliot has a story to tell you :'( He says he's a fighter and he really loves his mullet. But most of all he just wants people to know he's alright and hes got 99 balloons to prove it. Why dont you put the volume up really loud to hear him speak to you.

What a story.  I don't think I could show my wife this; she'd be broken up all day.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

This is so moving. Thanks Alex!
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

A real tear jerker. I watched that while I was pregnant with my son about 2 years ago. I declined screening tests and I was doubting myself for doing so. It is one of those "good cries" that you get from a touching story.
