Thanks for the laughs..........


Dear Howdy,

Does the name Toby Keith mean anything to you?
You really should start liking country music! He wrote
the song called Courtesty of the Red, White, and Blue.
It was a song written in response to Sept. 11 and about
his dad losing his eye in the Vietnam war. He wrote it.
He was supposed to appear on Peter Jenning's show
and perform. Well, Pete heard that song and said that
that song could not come on his show. Then Toby kept
hearing from ABC(?) and the story kept changing. He
refused to back down. At one showing he said, "Isn't
he from Canada?" and talked about how he won't sing
that song there but he could sing it here. I think this song
was the #1 song on both charts (country and rock.)

He also has made the Dixie Chicks mad with his patriotism.
That was really big too. Natalie Maines (the lead singer)
wore a shirt that said FUTK after he won an award both
were up for. The next day she claimed that stood for
Freedom, Understanding, Tolerance, and Knowledge.

Hello Howdy,

You are smarter than you look, but possibly
all the pictures of you in T&H don't do you justice.

Every war produces images of heroism that stick in our minds for a long
time. Because Operation Iraqi Freedom introduced the concept of embedded
reporters, that action produced many such images as journalists reported
live from the front lines. One image I just cannot get out of my head is
that of a wounded Marine, hit six times by enemy fire, being carried on a
stretcher by his fellow Marines. Maybe you saw this. What was so memorable
was that this wounded soldier was still carrying his automatic weapon - and
still firing it from his stretcher at nearby enemy forces!

We call it heroism when a wounded soldier still keeps fighting. God
calls it heroism when one of His soldiers - and that would be every one of
us who follows Jesus - will not let their wounds make them stop fighting. On
the stretcher, maybe. Giving up? Quitting the battle? Never.

If you've taken some hits lately - you're hurt, you're knocked down,
you're wounded - then the stirring testimony of the Apostle Paul in 2
Corinthians 4, beginning with verse 7, should be an encouragement and a
challenge to you. It's our word for today from the Word of God. It comes
from one who has been wounded over and over again, and who refuses to stop
fighting for Jesus.

Paul says: "We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this
all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on
every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but
not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed." He is wounded, but he is
still fighting.

That isn't always the way we respond to our wounds, is it? Maybe
you've allowed your hurts and your hard times to make you bitter, cynical,
negative, hard, withdrawn, self-pitying. Those poisons will do more damage
to you than the wounds ever could. And they are a choice. It could be that
you've let your wounds affect your faith and you've become a doubter rather
than a believer - thus forfeiting the peace that belongs only to those who
let hard times turn them to their Lord, not away from Him.

My friends Bob and Linda have been more deeply wounded than most of
us could imagine. Their teenage son was transformed by a commitment to
Christ he made through our Native American outreach team, and then by
traveling with the team. One month later he was killed in a terrible traffic
accident. Two years later, their precious 8-year old son died in their
presence in a winter accident. They could have become doubters or cynics,
but instead they have thrown themselves on God's grace and found a closeness
with God that radiates from their lives. And they have turned their sons'
funerals and the subsequent memorial services into places where scores and
scores of their people have met their Savior. I have seen it. They've been
wounded - they've been terribly wounded - but they refuse to stop fighting!

And that's what our Savior did. Agonizing on the cross, He still did
not think about Himself. He was too busy looking out for His mother,
ministering to the man on the cross next to Him, and forgiving the people
who nailed Him there. So don't quit, don't defect, don't surrender to
negativity and doubt. You keep fighting until Jesus says the battle is over
and takes you home for heaven's Medal of Honor. Ron Hutchcraft

One of the reasons for the success of the internet is its open,
peer-to-peer nature. All computers on the internet are equal,
and in the past it hasn't mattered whether your computer is
a 386 in Nguru on the end of a satellite phone or a big monster
in a New York rack. If that ever changes, I think we will lose
part of the essential, vital character of the internet. Doug Winter

Oh my black Soul! Now thou art summoned
By sicknesses, deaths herald, and champion;

These are the first lines of John Donne's compelling second Holy Sonnet.
Donne is the great Renaissance poet that wisely informed us that no man is
an island. In this sonnet he does not inform us of every man; rather he
tells us of himself.

He begins this powerful poem with a profound interrogation of his soul.
"Oh my black Soul!" he starts with a thunder. Four hundred years after
the ink of his pen has dried the passionate ache of his cry has not
withered. Can you not hear it in your own heart? Have you never turned
the eye of judgment upon yourself and found yourself wanting? Have you
never cried, "Oh my black Soul!"

What is one to do with a black soul, besides ache? For all our
technological savvy today we have yet to discover a solution to scrub the
soul. A hundred years of psychology and the words of the ancient Jewish
prophet Jeremiah are still terrifyingly true, "The heart is deceitful
above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?" (Footnote 1:
Jeremiah 17:9)

Still more terrifying for Donne is that death is approaching and he is
beset with illness. As he puts it, "sickness, death's herald and
champion" has summoned his soul to take account of himself. The grim
reaper approaches, and Donne is faced with the demanding task of searching
his soul to see what he will take to the other side. To his chagrin, he
finds his soul black, black with envy, black with selfishness, black with
pride. In sum, black with sin.

After many lines agonizing over this stark discovery, Donne comes to his
only hope: a strange paradox. He instructs his soul,

Wash thee in Christ's blood, which hath this might
That being red, it dyes red souls to white.

He turns to the mysterious power of the blood of Christ. The faith and
the hope of every Christian believer is in this paradoxical power of the
blood of Christ: that our souls being black, can be washed in the blood of
Christ and made white.

Donne believed that sixteen centuries after Christ's blood was shed that
it still possessed a wonderful potency, the power to cleanse souls.
Amazingly, four centuries more and that blood's power is not yet spent. I
know, for as I direct my heart to Christ, he washes my black soul and
makes it white.

Faith and love are apt to be spasmodic in the best of minds.

into which they never enter and with their hand on the doorlatch

old legal lions gave them a fight for their life and their

Two ladies were having tea together and one was depressed.

"What's wrong?" the first asked.

"I've been married four times and every one of my husbands has passed
away," replied the second.

The other lady asked, "What did they do?"

"Well, my first husband was a millionaire, the second was a magician,
the third was an evangelist, and the fourth was a mortician."

And the other said, "Oh, I see, one for the money, two for the show,
three to get ready, and four to go..."

"Hope in Five Words"
Exodus 3:7

Listen to the audio broadcast!

Narnia was a mythical land, created by C. S. Lewis, where the animals talk and where four children experience a series of incredible adventures. The 7-part series, "The Chronicles of Narnia," have long fascinated both children and adults alike. Then came Disney's movie version of the first Narnia story, "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe." And it was a blockbuster. In the story, the wardrobe is the closet through which the children discover Narnia. The witch is the evil ruler of the land, creating an endless winter where it is "always winter but never Christmas." And the lion is Aslan, the great son of the Emperor from across the sea. He is, in C. S. Lewis' imagery, the Christ-figure of Narnia. As the children begin to experience the icy and dangerous world that Narnia has become under an evil ruler, one of the animals announces that there is hope on the horizon. Hope turns out to be five words: "Aslan is on the move." Indeed, he was. Narnia would soon be set free.

Five words may explain the strange stirring that you've felt in your heart lately. Five words may mean hope for you. Those five words? "Jesus is on the move." The One of whom the Bible says: "The Lion of the tribe of Judah ... has triumphed" (Revelation 5:5). He may very well be on the move in your personal world and in your heart.

What He's moving to do is pictured in our word for today from the Word of God in Exodus 3, beginning with verse 7. God's speaking to Moses from an amazing burning bush in the wilderness. He says, "I have seen the misery of My people ... I have heard them crying out ... and I am concerned about their suffering. So I have come down to rescue them ... So now, go. I am sending you."

When Jesus starts moving, He's on a rescue mission. In fact, the name God told Mary and Joseph to give Him, Jesus, literally means "Jehovah rescues." Every time we say "Jesus," we're saying why He came - to rescue. In Moses' day, God was coming down to rescue His people from slavery in Egypt. Today, God comes down to rescue people from the bleakness and the bondages of a life lived outside of His purposes; the kind of "my way" living the Bible calls sin. Sin robs this life of its meaning and joy and it condemns us to the death penalty of an awful eternity. Jesus came like the rescuers went into the fallen towers on that dark September 11, risking his life to save us from a deadly situation from which we could never save ourselves. And He's on the move right now, and He's got rescue on His mind.

If you've given yourself to the Savior who died for you, He's asking you to join Him in His rescue mission. Your heart has been restless to make a greater difference, and that's why. He's moving to rescue people you know from a hopeless, "always winter" life and from an awful, Christless eternity. He's calling your name and saying, as He did to Moses, "So now, go. I am sending you." This is why He's put you where you are - to rescue. Don't miss the destiny you were made for.

And if there's never been a time when you grabbed Jesus as your spiritual Rescuer, He's coming close to you today so you can. Your hope of finding the purpose you were made for, your hope of experiencing God's awesome love, your hope of changing your eternal address to heaven is five words: "Jesus is on the move." The stirring, the tug you feel in your heart is Jesus. He's ready for you to come to Him. And you don't come when you're ready; you come when He's ready. When He's moving in your heart, there are, according to the Bible, two choices. Either you open your heart or you harden your heart.

If He's moving in your heart today, would you open your heart to Him? Just tell Him, "Lord Jesus, I know what You did on the cross is my only hope, and I'm ready to turn from running my own life and run to You as my Rescuer from my sin." If that's what you want, I'd like to help you make that step. Just go to our website. It's There's a brief explanation of how you can begin your relationship with Christ. Or you can call to get that in print. It's 877-741-1200. It's been winter in your life long enough. It doesn't have to be any longer. Jesus is on the move - in your heart.

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
