Words that contain the same root, such as the words "wise"
and "wisdom," are said to be paronymous.


The Chicago Tribune purchased the Chicago Cubs baseball team
from the P.K. Wrigley Chewing Gum Company for $20.5 million
in 1981. The sale ended the longest continuous ownership of
a team that stayed in its original city, which had been 60 years.

For the 2000 Super Bowl, about a third of the TV commercial
spots were purchased by dot-com companies. The following
year, the numbers dropped to just 10 percent bought by 'Net

Three hundred and fourteen acres of trees are used to make
the newsprint for the average Sunday edition of the New York
Times. There are nearly 63,000 trees in the 314 acres.

Changes to the appearance of the White House in Washington
D.C., have occurred over the years. For instance, President
William Taft converted the White House stables into a garage
for four cars in 1909. President Dwight D. Eisenhower, an
avid golfer, had a putting green installed on the White
House lawn. He also banished squirrels from the grounds
because they were ruining the green. President Richard Nixon
disliked the press, so it was odd that he ordered the
filling in of the White House's swimming pool, thus giving
reporters more room when covering White House events. Soon
after Nixon resigned in 1974, the new President, Gerald Ford,
had another pool dug on the White House lawn.

1949 - The salary of the President of the United States
was increased from $75,000 to $100,000 with an additional
$50,000 expense allowance added for each year in office.
Today, the President makes $200,000 a year.

1985 - "The New York Times" announced that Lee Iacocca's book,
"Iacocca", was 1984's best selling hard cover book. Not until
the the 1990s when Rush Limbaugh's first novel arrived was it
topped in sales.


The term "happy-go-lucky" has been in existence since 1665.

After being forced to state in public by the Catholic Church
that the earth does not rotate, Galileo is said to have muttered
under his breath, "But it does move."

Rennet, a common substance used to curdle milk and make
cheese, is taken from the inner lining of the fourth stomach
of a calf.

A young man went to visit his 90-year-old grandfather in a very secluded,
rural area of the state he lived in. After spending the night, his
grandfather prepared breakfast for him consisting of eggs and bacon. He
noticed a film-like substance on his plate and he questioned Grandpa, "Are
these plates clean?"

Grandpa replied, "Those plates are as clean as Palmolive can get them, so
go on and finish your meal."

That afternoon, while eating the hamburgers his grandfather made for lunch,
he noticed tiny specks around the edge of his plate, and a substance that
looked like dried egg yokes. So he asked again, "Are you sure these plates
are clean?"

Without looking up from his hamburger, the grandfather huffed, "I told you
before, those dishes are as clean as Palmolive can get them, now stop
being so picky!"

Later that afternoon, he was on his way out to get dinner in a nearby
restaurant. As he was leaving, Grandpa's dog started to growl and wouldn't
let him pass. He yelled back, "Grandpa, your dog won't let me out!"

So Grandpa shouted, "PALMOLIVE, GET OUT OF THE WAY!"

They've gone too far with guys; now they need to back away. How do they do
it? It's simple--not to say easy.

Omnipresence -does that big theological term mean anything to you? Working
it into a conversation might make you sound smart, but does it have any
real import in your life?

Webster defines omnipresence as something or someone present everywhere at
all times . Stuffy definitions don't usually capture such powerful
notions -so consider a contrast to flesh this term out.

Neither you nor I are omnipresent. (Certainly, this is not news to you.)
We are quite the opposite. We are spatially and temporally located. I am
always in one place at one time. Spatially, I am always here or there.
Temporally, I am always located at right now. Yes, I can think back to
yesterday or ahead to tomorrow, but I do so from the vantage of right now.

Consider how our locatedness determines how we can relate and know others.
If I want to see my friend I must go to him. To be with him I must share
the same space with him. And so space separates my friend and me until we
arrive at the same space at the same time. Temporally, I am also
constrained. I cannot snap my fingers and automatically have a ten-year
relationship with someone. I must spend ten years, or travel through ten
years, with them to obtain that. Nor can I just immediately get to my
meeting tomorrow. I must wait until tomorrow for that.

Now an omnipresent entity would not face these limitations. It would be
everywhere for all times. It would not have to travel to meet someone.
It would not have to wait for an appointment. It would already and always
be there.

Is there such a thing in the universe? No, but there is such a Person.
Our word for Him is God, and He is everywhere we ever are. This can be
either a terrifying or comforting truth. For with all others you have the
choice to be with them or leave them, spend time with them or depart, but
with the omnipresent Person you have no such luxury. He is always with
You, there, attentive to your thoughts, your emotions, and your actions.
David, the poet-King, puts it this way, "Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?" This is terrifying if you do not
trust Him, or know that He loves you. Christ tells us that God loves us,
and Christ shows us that God is trustworthy. If you don't believe me,
simply ask Him; He is there with you now.

Does anyone hear our thoughts? When you are in the office meeting and you
think that terrible thing about your boss, are you the only one listening?
When that errant thought about your friend flies across your mind, is the
internal blush only seen by you?

The way we answer these questions, no doubt, will be indicative of the
times in which we live, and a hallmark of our time is the gross
over-emphasis upon the individual. Part and parcel of this over-emphasis
is the manner in which we prize and misconceive the interior life: that
which transpires inside the individual, that which no other human knows
about except when we show it to them through words or actions. We
conceive of our interior life as being wholly our own because we think
that we are the only ones ultimately a party to it. "No one else is in my
thoughts," we think, "therefore they are mine exclusively." And certainly
this can seem to be very true. For instance, I cannot communicate to my
best friend through my thoughts. At dinner with him, if I think, "Pass
the salt," he will not hear me and pass the salt. He might read my body
language, or know my eating habits, and pass the salt. But no matter how
well he knows me, he will never read my thoughts; they will always be
communicated to him through some other medium such as my words or actions.
Thus it is easy to see why we construe our interior life to be a solitary
monologue -for no other human can hear it.

But if we are to take seriously the notion of the omnipresence of God, and
I think that most if not all intuitively know that notion to be true, then
we must explode this conception of the solitary monologue. Your internal
ears are not the only pair attuned to your interior life. The Divine ears,
and eyes for that matter, are attentively fixed on you and your life, both
external and internal. We cannot hide from Him in some corner of our
mind. And just because we might forget that He is there, does not mean
that He forgets that we are there and leaves off to go do something else.

This is terrifying if you do not trust Him, or know that He loves you.
Yet Christ tells us that God loves us, and Christ shows us that God is
trustworthy. If you don't believe me, simply ask God, He is listening to
your thoughts. (Keith Cox)

Two UNC grads on a cliff with their arms outstretched.

One has some budgies lined up on each arm, the other has
parrots lined up on his arms.

After a couple of minutes, they both leap off the cliff and
fall to the ground.

Laying next to each other in intensive care at the hospital,
one says to the other, "I don't think much of this budgie jumping."

The other grad replies, "Yeah, I'm not too keen on this
paragliding either."

"It is the duty of nations, as well as of men, to
own their dependence upon the overruling power of God and
to recognize the sublime truth announced in the Holy Scriptures
and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed
whose God is the Lord." --Abraham Lincoln
If you stop believing what your PROFESSOR told you had
to be true and if you start thinking for yourself you may come
to some conclusions you hadn't expected. You may find the
Bible makes more sense than you thought or were told to think.
Allow yourself to be ruined, ruined with regard to what you
always thought could be true. Can you believe what you don't
understand?You and I believe everyday what we don't understand
unless it comes to the issue to salvation. Dr. Woodrow Kroll

Faith and love are apt to be spasmodic in the best of minds.
Men and women live on the brink of mysteries and harmonies
into which they never enter and with their hand on the door
latch they die outside. GK Chesterton
Trust in yourself and you are doomed to disappointment;
trust in money and you may have it taken from you; but
trust in God, and you are never to be confounded in time
or eternity. - D.L. Moody

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
