If the Mountain Will Not Come to Muhammad

When things don’t go your way, you may have to make adjustments.  A legend says that the Prophet Mohammed was asked to provide proof of his teaching, so he ordered Mount Safa (a hill located in Mecca) to come to him.  When the mountain did not move, Mohammed praised God for being merciful saying that if the mountain had obeyed his command it would have fallen on all of them and destroyed them, and therefore he would now go to the mountain and give thanks to God for having mercy on such a disbelieving people.

Two-year old Quinn Walker was born with the left side of her heart missing, and at just six days old she had her first open heart surgery.  Arizona Officers brought 5 tons of snow to the girl’s driveway, because she wanted to see snow and her doctor said that since she needed an oxygen supply, that she was not healthy enough for a trip to the mountains.  Since Quinn could not go to the mountain, the snow was brought to her.
