An Arrest Made


The police recently busted a man selling
' secret formula' tablets he claimed gave
eternal youth. When going through their
files they noticed it was the fifth time he
was caught for commiting this same
criminal medical fraud.

He had earlier been arrested in 1794,
1856, 1928 and 1983...........

Wednesday's Riddles


1) I always fall,
but I never get hurt.
I can bend over backwards,
but cannot break.
I arrive free of charge
but often leave for a fee.

What am I?

2) The more you take the more you leave behind.
What is it?

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

3) What is the four digit number,
no zeros, in which the first digit
is five times the last, the second
is four more than the first and three
times the third and the third is two
more than the last and two less than
the first.

4) I know a thousand faces,
and count the tailed heads,
feasting bright upon the eyes,
of many who have died.
wielding well a mighty power,
who hath but humble stature.
Masses fall upon their knees,
to scare behold my only side!

5) Can you decipher this famous saying?

That prudent avis which matutinally
deserts the coziness of its abode will
ensnare a vermiculate creature.

6) What has one leg,
but not two.
Never gets fat,
has 15 teeth,
but doesn't chew.
All green and no blue,
bugs don't like them but I do.
What are they?

7) Without a bridle, or a saddle,
across a thing I ride a-straddle.
And those I ride, by help of me,
though almost blind, are made to see.
What am I?

Men and women are different. There's no
getting around that fact. But when we try
to avoid it, and try we do, the outcome is
downright comical...



Professor Howdy -
(As A Child)



Children Who Expect Too Much


My friend, Bill, was talking to me about his son's expectations.
He called them "microwave expectations." Bill was in his early
50s, and his son Ken had been married for about a year, and
his son wanted everything fast - like in a microwave. Bill said,
"I can't believe it. They want all this stuff immediately! They've
been married one year and they want a home, they want furniture,
and they want a new car. They want in a year what it took us
20 years to get!" That's not unusual - the child expects more
than the father had...




Christmas Moment


If you've lived long enough, odds are you've been
smooched against your will at Christmastime -
thanks to mistletoe. Mistletoe actually became
a big deal centuries ago when ancient people
noticed that even when everything around it
was dead or dying, it still blossomed and thrived.

Malcolm Muggeridge is remembered as one of the most
notable figures of the twentieth century. The wit and
style of this self-dubbed "fatally fluent" journalist made
him as endearing as he was controversial. His presence
was a decipherable entity in print, over the radio, and
on television. With over fifty years in the public eye,
Muggeridge knew well the effect of publicity on the
human ego. In the words of one biographer, he knew
well the strange metamorphosis that turns an individual
into an image...

Lady Or Birds?



Knowing How It's Going To End


Some years ago, my wife and I were at this couples party at church,
and they played a game that is sort of like that old TV show, "Let's
Make a Deal." Everybody brought some "white elephant" gifts -
something you really wanted to get rid of. Of course, all these
castaway gifts were nicely wrapped so no one knew what was
inside. Then one person has to go to the gift pile, pick one, and
they open it. From that point on, each person has a choice: take
one of those unopened treasures, or give one of those unopened
gifts in exchange for something that's already been opened -
something that you know you want. Now, at this particular party,
there was one particular object - this hand-carved lamp stand -
that everybody wanted. It was one of the few things of value.
And it didn't matter what lengths a person went to in order
to conceal that lamp stand, the next trader inevitably would
remember where it was and they'd go for it. Actually, the dealing
got very animated, and in fact, almost dangerous at times. Every -
body was up for grabs, except for one person - the woman who
had opened the first gift. See, she remembered the rules of the
game - that since the first person didn't get to make a trade,
they get to make the last trade of the game. Through all the
turmoil, she knew who was going home with that lamp stand!



Questioning Gabriel


The Gospel of Luke begins with two monumental appointments
between time and eternity. A messenger of the Lord appears
first to an aging man in the midst of his priestly duties, and later
to a young, peasant girl in the midst of anticipating the life ahead
of her. In each visit, like a gust of wind that turns an umbrella
inside out, the message delivered was the sort of news that moves
the lives of all who go near it, let alone the worlds of those who heard
it first. Both visits incite fear. Both invoke questions. But in the inter -
change of the eternal and the temporal, though the promises of God
are similarly moving, we find two very different human responses.

she has carried a heavy load of nagging credit card debt. If you've

down like this heavy burden on your back. Well, Vicki recently
came into some money through an inheritance, and you know
what she did with it! She had a party - a check writing party!
All those debts are paid, and you can tell she feels like she just

Verse of the Day

* * * Four Important Things To KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

But these are written so that you may
believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the
Son of God, and that by believing in
Him you will have life. Jn 20:31

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
call on Him while He is near. Let the
wicked forsake his way and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him turn to the
Lord, and He will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for He will freely
pardon. "For My thoughts are not
your thoughts, neither are your ways
My ways," declares the Lord. "As the
heavens are higher than the earth, so
are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow come down
from heaven, and do not return to it
without watering the earth and making
it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed
for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is My word that goes out from My
mouth: It will not return to Me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and
achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy and be led forth
in peace; the mountains and hills will
burst into song before you, and all the
trees of the field will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the
pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle
will grow. This will be for the Lord's
renown, for an everlasting sign, which
will not be destroyed." Is 55

O Lord, you have searched me and you
know me. You know when I sit and when
I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying
down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know
it completely, O Lord. You hem me in -
behind and before; you have laid your
hand upon me. Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where
can I flee from your presence? If I go up
to the heavens, you are there; if I make
my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide
me and the light become night around
me," even the darkness will not be dark
to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you. For you
created my inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's womb. I praise
you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; your works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was not hidden
from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts,
O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would
outnumber the grains of sand. When
I awake, I am still with you. Search me,
O God, and know my heart; test me
and know my anxious thoughts. See
if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Ps 139

But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up,
that I may show My power in you, and that My
Name may be declared in all the earth. Ex 9:16

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
- - Isaac Watts
