A man came across a striking brass rat in an antique store and decided
it would look great on his desk. He paid $100 for it but was surprised
when the proprietor insisted it was non-returnable. He said, "It's been
returned twice already, and I don't want to see it again." Leaving the
store, the man saw a couple of rats scurrying around the corner; several
more were near his car. As he drove, rats appeared from the gutters and
side streets until he was nearly overwhelmed. In panic, he threw the
brass rat over a bridge railing into a river, and witnessed the army of
live rats follow into the depths. The man hurried back to the store, but
the owner cut him short, saying, "Look, I told you there would be no
returns." The man quickly replied, " Oh no, that's fine. I was just
wondering if you had a brass lawyer."

Dear Howdy,

I have been getting the E-mail Newspaper for some time now,
but over the weekend, my hard drive crashed and I lost all my
e-mail, I was wondering if you could send some of the back
issues. I am a Youth Pastor and I use the jokes often when
I am speaking to teens.

I would appreciate any of the back issues you could send, thanks.

Because He Lives


Dear Howdy,

You may have heard in the news that a couple of Post Offices in
Texas have been forced to take down small posters that say "IN GOD
WE TRUST." The law, they say, is being violated. It is something silly
about electioneering posters (is God running for office)?

Anyway, I heard proposed on a radio station show, that we all
write "IN GOD WE "TRUST" on the back of all our mail After all, that is
our national motto, and it's on all the money we use to buy those stamps.
I think it is a wonderful idea.

We must take back our nation from all the people that thinkthat
anything that offends them should be removed. (AMEN TO THAT!)

If you like this idea, please pass it on, and DO IT. The idea of
writing or stamping "IN GOD WE TRUST" on our envelopes sounds good to
me. It has been reported that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore,
I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a mess about
having "In God We Trust" on our money and having God in the pledge of

Could it be that we just need to take action and tell the 14% to
sit down and shut up?



Dear Howdy, I'd like receive via e-mail a copy of your newspaper.
I saw a friends (in the office) and I really thought it was nice.

My e-mail address is: _____________

Even though I was very busy speaking at a conference, I was blessed
with a beautiful mountain cabin as my accommodation while I was there. The
best time, and about the only time I could enjoy it, was early in the
morning. This cabin has a large porch from which you can see majestic forest
views and an awe-inspiring tapestry of green mountains and deep valleys. As
I stepped out onto that porch one morning, the scenery had undergone a
significant makeover. The fog was winning. I watched as these large clouds
of fog billowed up, first filling the valley below and then steadily rising
to totally obscure the mountains. It looked almost as if the mountains were
being consumed by fog. So, the morning light from the sun that should have
been illuminating the area by that time was nowhere to be seen. Well,
briefly. You know what happened. The sun continued to rise behind the
conquering fog, and in a short time, that fog began to quickly shrink - and
soon disappear.

The fog never really stands a chance - it's no match for the
inevitable victory of the sun - in a majestic mountain landscape, or in the
dark moments of your life and mine. And it could be that you're in one of
those seasons right now. It's been a time of loss, of grief, of doubt and
confusion, of a prodigal loved one, of no answers. Maybe you've been walking
through a fog where evil seems to be winning; where injustice seems to be
prevailing. The fog has rolled into your life and obscured things you were
once so sure of. It's covered the joy you once had with a sense of sadness
and fear and even thoughts of giving up.

But if you belong to the Sovereign Lord, the One who rules the
galaxies and cares about your daily bread, the fog cannot ultimately win!
The sun of God's power and love on your life is more powerful than the fog
in your valley, no matter how dense and stubborn that fog may seem to be.
Psalm 84:11 promises that "the Lord God is a sun and a shield ... no good
thing does He withhold from those whose walk is blameless."

And in our word for today from the Word of God, you have five
hope-filled words straight from your Father's heart to yours. They're in
Psalm 112:4 - "Even in darkness light dawns." Okay, let's get the context of
that promise for every foggy day. "Even in darkness light dawns for the
upright, for the gracious and compassionate and righteous man." Don't let
the darkness change the kind of person you are. Your mission is to keep on
being gracious, keep on being upright, keep on being compassionate. Don't
let the light inside you go out. Psalm 112 goes on to say: "Good will come
to him ... surely he will never be shaken ... he will have no fear of bad
news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord ... in the end he will
look in triumph on his foes."

Bottom line: the fog that seems so impenetrable right now actually
stands no chance against the rising Sun of your Lord's breakthrough. The
evil may have its hour of filling your horizon, but Sun is going to win! The
grief will not last forever. Your prodigal will one day be carried home in
the shoulders of the Good Shepherd. The doubts you're having in the darkness
cannot change what you heard from God when it was light. The answers you
need will break through your confusion and struggle. The sadness of the fog
is going to succumb to the joy of God's much more powerful sunlight.

Yes, the fog has been billowing up, filling your view - and maybe
even making you forget the sun sometimes. But the fog can never ultimately
win. Don't lose hope now. Don't stop trusting now. Don't stop doing what you
know is right just because the fog has rolled in. The light may have been
delayed, but there's no way it can be cancelled. "Even in darkness light
dawns." The sun's coming up, and the fog doesn't stand a chance!

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
