Secular rituals are sprouting up where people try to find
meaning without God. Try as they might, though, they can’t
fill that hole.

A man was chosen for jury duty who very much wanted to be
dismissed from serving. He tried every excuse he could think
of but none of them worked.

On the day of the trial he decided to give it one more shot. As the
trial was about to begin he asked if he could approach the bench.

"Your Honor," he said, " I must be excused from this trial because I
am prejudiced against the defendant. I took one look at the man in
his blue suit with those beady eyes and that dishonest face and I
said to myself, 'He's a crook! He's guilty, guilty, guilty!' So, your
Honor, I could not possibly stay on this jury!"

With a tired annoyance the judge replied, "Get back in the jury box.
That man is his lawyer."

There was a UNC grad driving down the center of the road at 100 mph.
A police officer pulled her over to the side of the road. When she
had stopped, the officer asked, "License and Registration please"

"It's okay, Officer, I have a special license that allows me to do
this," she said smiling.

"That's impossible!" The officer replied, "I've never heard of such
a license."

To which the driver reached into her purse and handed him her
license. Astonished, the Officer said, "Just as I suspected. This
is an ordinary license, I see nothing here that would allow you
special consideration."

She pointed to the bottom of the license, "See? it says so right
here: 'Tear Along The Dotted Line'."

Evidence has been found that William Tell and his
family were avid bowlers. However, all the league
records were unfortunately destroyed in a fire.

Thus we'll never know for whom the Tell's bowled.

A UNC grad spent all day making his funny money. At the
end of the day he realizes he spent all his time making $15 bills.

He figures that the only way he's going to get anything from this
batch of money, is to find a place where the people aren't too
bright and change his phony money for real cash.

He travels to a small town in the backwoods and walks into a
small Mom and Pop grocery store. He goes to the old man
behind the counter and asks him, "Do you have change for a $15 bill?"

The old man replies, "I sure do. How would you like that?
An 8 and a 7 or two 6s and a three?"

Dear Howdy,

As, always, a great T&H! I am reminded today of what a truly great servant
you are for Christ! Putting together such a varied and always new and
interesting publication for the whole world to read is nothing short of a
huge task and challenge. You show grace and love towards all those who send
you negative comments (putting that lightly, occasionally) and display great
consideration and concern for all of your readers. In that, you personify
Christ. I admire your efforts and your efforts must not be underestimated.

GOD BLESS YOU HOWDY for you work in the Great Commission!!!

PS: Loved the Cartoon Character Quiz...I was Sponge Bob! LOL. I'd be
interested to hear what everyone else summed up to be!

I wake up in the morning,
And can hardly wait to see
If I've received a mailing,
addressed from you to me.

I get my puter running
And much to my delight,
Your poems, jokes and other things
Come quickly into sight.

Please keep those emails coming,
They are so enjoyable you see
Funny things, friendly things
Those things you mail to me.

But most of all the fun of it,
Is knowing that they came.
From you my friend,
The one I need not name.

Dear Howdy,

For some time now I have been guilty of just skipping (deleting)
the T&H msgs. I must not do that from now on. Yesterday I laughed
so much and that was good free therapy!! I even forwarded. Thanks
for keeping them clean--- there is really no need to dirty good humor.

Dear Howdy,

You may seen this before. It's worth reading again.


One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door
to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime
left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the
next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman
opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She
thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He
drank it slowly, and then asked, How much do I owe you?" You don't
owe me anything," she replied. "Mother has taught us never to accept
pay for a kindness"! He said..... "Then I thank you from my heart."

As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger
physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been
ready to give up and quit.

Many years later that same young woman became critically
ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city,
where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard
Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name
of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately
he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room. Dressed in
his doctor's gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He
went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save
her life. From that day he gave special attention to her case.

After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the
business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it,
then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room. She
feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay
for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the
side of the bill. She read these words.....

"Paid in full with one glass of milk"
(Signed) Dr. Howard Kelly.

Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed:

"Thank You, God, that Your love has spread broad through human hearts
and hands."

There's a saying which goes something like this: Bread cast
on the waters comes back to you. The good deed you do today may
benefit you or someone you love at the least expected time. If you never
see the deed again at least you will have made the world a better place -
And, after all, isn't that what life is all about?

Godiva Chocolates were launched in 1926 in Brussels,
Belgium, when master chocolatier Joseph Draps founded,
with his family, a chocolate company named in honor of the
1040 A.D. legend of Lady Godiva. Draps had perfected a unique
formula of rich, smooth chocolate. With an eye for detail,
he launched elegant, European shell-moulded designs and
exquisite packaging. Through the years, his standards have
been maintained as zealously as his recipes have been
guarded. Since its U.S. introduction in 1966, Godiva
continues to be a leader in the premium confectionery
industry. Godiva's famous Open Oyster, a shell-moulded
chocolate filled with hazelnut praliné, is the company's
best-selling individual chocolate piece

A UNC grad had always dreamed of owning his own cattle
ranch, and finally made enough money to buy himself the
spread of his dreams in Wyoming.

"So, what did you name the ranch?" asked his best friend
when he flew out to visit.

"We had a heck of a time," admitted the new cowboy.
"Couldn't agree on anything. We finally settled on the
Double R Lazy L Triple Horseshoe Bar-7 Lucky Diamond Ranch."

"Wow!" his friend was impressed. But looking around he
saw no cattle. "So... where are all the cows?"

"None of 'em survived the branding."

Driving is never more exciting than it is during a major snowstorm.
In fact, it is so exciting you ought to avoid it. Sometimes you just can't.
I was scheduled to speak at a retreat in the Pocono Mountains one January
weekend and a major snowstorm moved in right on the Friday when everyone
is supposed to be traveling to Pennsylvania from New Jersey. I waited all day
for the call, "Sorry, it's been cancelled." I got the call. They were still going,
and by that time it was dark. It was snowing very impressively, so I traveled
at a very reduced speed and it looked almost impossible to make it until I
spotted my friend up ahead - my friend the snow plow. He was clearing a
lane as he went. I just fell in right behind Mr. Snow Plow and followed him
through the storm all the way to the state line.

Our word for today from the Word of God comes from Isaiah 43:16. God
says, "This is what the Lord says - He who made a way through the sea, a
path through the mighty waters." Verse 18: "Forget the former things; do not
dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you
not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the
wasteland." God is described here as He who made a way. This is a very
exciting view of our Heavenly Father. He's the way-maker when there is no
way. Like when the Jews were on the banks of the Red Sea, every sense said
it was over. No way. Now, young people often pick up phrases and dialogue
from popular movies. One of those that came from a movie a few years ago was
a response when someone says, "No way." You just go, "Way." That's short
for, "No, you're wrong. There is a way."

Right now you might be facing a seemingly impossible situation and
you're shaking your head like the Jews at the Red Sea and you're saying "No
way." Then there's this unexpected whisper from God's heart to yours: "Way."
He's just trying to assure you that He will make a way through mighty waters
that seem overwhelming and unmovable - through the desert, a place where
there seems to be no resources.

If you've committed yourself to Jesus as your personal Savior, you
belong to a way-making God. What does that mean? You can't judge the
outcome by how bad the situation is. Your Father can overrule that. You
can't judge by how impossible it is. It's only impossible by earth standards.
But your God doesn't have impossible in His vocabulary. You can't judge by
how late it is. You say, "Man, there's not enough time for an answer now."
Hey, God could do in an hour what men couldn't pull off in fifty years.

Stand with Job on this conviction. It's in Job 42:2, "I know that
you can do all things, Lord, no plan of yours can be thwarted." One
treacherous snowy night I looked ahead at a road that seemed impossible
until I saw someone going ahead of me who could clear that road.

One fearful day, God's ancient people stood on the banks of the Red
Sea trapped before the attacking armies of Egypt until they saw someone who
could part a sea and bury an army. That very same God, the great Way-Maker,
is out in front of you. Ron Hutchcraft

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
