Dear Howdy,I must admit that I was really irritated when I first received your
newspaper. I have been having mucho problems receiving virus-laced
pornographic emails, which I cannot seem to get stopped. AOL has been no
help whatsoever. I was just sure your publication was more of the same.
The versions I was initially receiving were hopelessly unreadeable. I assumed
they were more of the overseas smut I was receiving.

There was nothing to open, nothing to download, nothing to make any sense.
There were just a bunch of seemingly unrelated words and numbers. AOL could
tell me nothing about them, nor could Yahoo. I sent several emails trying
to get them stopped, but to no avail. I did receive one reply IN FRENCH which
said my request could not be understood. (You must have some creative
staffers or some wacky servers.) That confirmed my suspicions. I forwarded
each arrival to AOL spam and AOL virus email services.

Finally, a coupe of weeks ago one came actually written in English and
actually readable. Imagine my shock! Being a public school educator and a
Chrisian, I found it quite interesting and refreshing and would hope to
continue receiving your publication. I will gladly pass them on.

Now, how about sending one in html version with all the goodies combined. I
would really like to see everything put together.

Good luck and may God bless you for your part in spreading His message.

Hello Howdy,

WOW! Some extremely well written items in this issue
of T&H. Brilliant! I would say the whole tone of the issue
has improved. Of course, that is my unbiased, purely
objective opinion, and I could be wrong.

"Unpacking Before You Get Home"
1 Chronicles 16:43

Listen to the audio broadcast!

My family calls it an idiosyncrasy or is it "idiotsyncrasy"? I'm not sure. But no matter when we get home whenever we've been on a trip, I must unpack. It is the first thing to do when you get home. Oh, it may be 2am, but there's Ron putting his clothes in the closet where they go; making sure his toothbrush is where it needs to be the next morning, putting my books back where they came from. Everyone else is zonked! They're in a coma, and here's Mr. Compulsive busily restoring order. See, I'm not home until I'm unpacked and finally I fall into bed and I go, "Ah, I'm finally home!" See, once everything is put away, I can finally start enjoying being home. Actually, we should unpack even sooner.

I'm Ron Hutchcraft and I want to have A Word With You today about "Unpacking Before You Get Home."

Our word for today from the Word of God comes from 1 Chronicles 16:43. It's one of those great examples out of a real flesh and blood life that are given to us from the Old Testament. It says, "Then all the people left, each for his own home, and David returned home" - notice these words - "to bless his family." He knows what his mission is, "When I get home, I'm going to bless my family."

David's been a very pretty busy guy. He's been busy with major battles, he's been busy organizing God's people, he's been busy running his whole kingdom, but now it's time to go home and he's going to bless them. Does this say David returned home to rest, recover, or to get his needs met? No, it says to bless his family. It's a great example for all of us - this selfless attitude - this other's attitude.

When you get home, no matter what the battles have been - whether you're coming home from work, school or errands you've been on, I wonder if it could be said of you - put your name in there. I'll put mine in there. "Ron, returned home to bless his family." Going home determined to be a blessing when you walk in the door. That means you have to unpack before you get home because we collect baggage all day long. On your way home, as you're driving or riding home, you need to unpack all those frustrations; all the stuff you left undone. It'll be there again tomorrow. You don't carry it all in the door with you. You kind of unpack all the people of your day and, as they say, focus on the family. Leave your work at work and get ready to be with your family - not just around your family, but with your family.

It's a discipline. You see, you sit down and you think through their day; what were they going through today, what do I need to ask them about, what were their needs when I left this morning, what was their agenda? This is kind of like loving your neighbor like you love yourself, except it's the people closest to you. Picture each one of them and pray for them. Leave your concerns with your Lord. The alternative is you walk in all preoccupied with yourself, and when you get home you make, it a point to touch everyone lovingly - every member of your family. Express an interest in each one's day. See if there's anything they need help on.

You say, "Well, man, I'm out of gas when I get home." The Bible says, "He that refreshes others, will himself be refreshed." So you get home and you set a climate of caring, and giving, and unselfishness, and guess what? You reap what you sow. You come in loaded down with the stress of the day and you sow stress, and you're going to reap more stress. So it doesn't matter if you're a mom or a dad, or a son or a daughter, or a brother or sister, a husband or wife, on your way home unpack your day.

You're not really home until you're unpacked. Then pray this simple prayer, "Lord make me a blessing from the moment I walk in the door." I think you'll like the results.

TBC: The advance of science has not been a friend to evolution. Since
"presumption" plays a significant role in formulating evolutionary theory,
recent discoveries have roughly handled some evolutionary presumptions about
simpler life forms.

'More genes' needed to make life [Excerpts]
By Paul Rincon
BBC News science reporter

Scientists trying to make artificial life forms in the lab may have more
work ahead of them than they thought.

The simplest life forms could require twice as many genes to survive than
was previously believed, a research team claims in the journal Nature.

The "minimal genome" is the least number of genes an organism needs to
survive in its environment.

The traditional way of identifying essential genes may label some as
expendable when they are not.

The surprise was the metabolism got to be really rather larger than people
had suggested the smallest metabolism could be.

A US research team created the world's first synthetic virus in 2002, but
scientists are divided about whether viruses are, strictly speaking, alive.

A team at Rockefeller University, US, has created small synthetic vesicles
capable of expressing genes that resemble a crude kind of biological cell.

And Dr Craig Venter - the man behind the privately funded human genome
sequence - has announced his intention to create a man-made microbe with the
minimum number of genes needed to sustain life.

The work in Nature suggests they may have further to go than anyone had
predicted (

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
