While attending a marriage seminar on communication,
David and his wife listened to the instructor declare,
"It is essential that husbands and wives know the things
that are important to each other."

He addressed the man, "Can you describe your wife's
favorite flower?"

David leaned over, touched his wife's arm gently and
whispered, "Pillsbury All-Purpose, isn't it?"

The other day I needed to call home, but the only pay phone I could
find was in use...

So I stood to the side and politely waited until it was free, thinking
it would only be a couple of minutes. Five minutes went by, and still
the man was on the phone.

I noticed he was just standing there, not saying a word. Four more
minutes went by, and he still wasn't saying anything...

Finally, I tapped him on the shoulder and asked if I could use the
phone; just for minute... I really wouldn't be long, but needed to
make an important call.

"Just hold on, buddy!" he responded, covering the receiver. "I'm
talking to my wife."


"Good, the more, communicated, more abundant grows."

ANSWER: John Milton (1608 - 1674), English author

Dear Howdy,

Kindly get this stuff off my computer. I can manage my own spiritual life without your help and my sense of humor is just fine, thank you.

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


Actor Mel Gibson on what women want .....
"After about twenty years of marriage, I'm finally starting to
scratch the surface of that one. And I think the answer lies
somewhere between conversation and chocolate."

Q. What does it mean when all the socks in the laundry
match, with none left over?
A. You're now losing them in pairs!


Two UNC girls were talking to each other
and one couldn't help but notice how pretty
and beautiful the others skin was. So she
asked her outright what made her skin so
soft and beautiful.
"Well.. once a week I fill a bathtub up
with milk and just soak in it."

So the UNC student went to a farm and spoke to
the farmer. "I'd like a lot of milk."

"How much?" asked the farmer.

"Well quite a lot because I'm going to soak in it."

He asked, "Pasturized?" "No...just up to my neck."


In his book, Renovation of the Heart, Dallas Willard observed, "Feelings
make excellent servants, but terrible masters." In our culture, many
slogans tell us our feelings should dictate how to live. If we feel
bitter against another, we should allow that bitterness to burn. If we
feel unimportant, we should run to music or substances to console the
feelings. Feelings tell us where to go, what to say, and what to do.

Many addictive vices are more a matter of feelings than a matter of
chemicals: compulsive shopping, pornography, alcohol, narcotics, gambling,
gossip, selfishness, needing to be needed, wealth, video games, bossy
behavior, and other vices that stem from feelings of fear and
worthlessness. But vices are unable, by their very nature, to satisfy.
Vices easily become things we habitually run to because they help us
appease the enthroned dictator of our feelings.

But it isn't just the feelings of individuals. The feelings of society
can also be masters. What about racism? When feelings become masters,
people of all races feel the blow.

I was speaking with someone recently about society's feelings. She said,
"Why can't we explain justice as a concept society created?" I asked her
if she thought racism was wrong. "Yes," she said. I asked her if society
thought it was wrong one hundred years ago. "No." I asked her if Martin
Luther King was a good guy. "Yes." I asked her if Martin Luther King
learned that racism was wrong from his society. "No." Then with an
expression of discovery, she said, "Oh, I see. Well, it does seem that
people do know what justice is in the back of their minds, even if they
ignore it."

Feelings make terrible masters. But feelings make excellent servants. In
the life of David, the young man is pursued by the envious King Saul who
is trying to kill him. David cries out to God to be delivered from
cruelty and injustice. Then with God's ironic timing, Saul steps
vulnerably into a cave for a moment. David huddles in the shadows of that
cave, remembering his prayers. How does David feel? Alone, unimportant,
afraid, rejected. Though all of his feelings were real and justified,
David allowed them to be servants. And they drove him to God.

David showed mercy when his feelings wanted to lead him to vengeance. He
declared, "I will not lift my hand against my master, because he is the
Lord's anointed." (Footnote 1: 1 Samuel 24:10) You see, David was a man
who developed a habit of seeking after God and was more concerned about
God's kingdom than his own. He directed his feelings of loneliness, fear,
and rejection to point him to a proper place. If his feelings were
masters, David may have pitifully altered the rest of his life. But by
making feelings his servants, David responded well.

Have feelings controlled your actions today? Have you allowed your
feelings to dictate poor lifestyle habits? Look at them with scrutiny.
Why are they there? What do they mean? Let me encourage you to direct
your feelings to point you to God. Be deliberate to develop a wise mind
that habitually seeks after God and chooses what is good. Then we may say
with David, "I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from
all my fears…The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who
are crushed in spirit." (Footnote 2: Psalm 34:4, 18) Dale Fincher

Two lawyers are in a bank, when armed robbers burst in. While several
of the robbers take the money from the tellers, others line the
customers, including the lawyers, up against a wall, and proceed to
take their wallets, watches, etc.

While this is going on, the first lawyer jams something in the other
lawyer's hand. Without looking down, the second lawyer whispers, the
the first, "What is this?"

The first lawyer replies, "it's that $50 I owe you."


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


Who is Jesus? (


One day at a trial, an eminent UNC staff psychologist was called to testify.
A severe no nonsense professional, she sat down in the witness chair
unaware that it's rear legs were set precariously on the back of the
raised platform.

"Will you state your name?" asked the district attorney.

Tilting back in her chair she opened her mouth to answer, but instead
catapulted head-over-heels backward and landed in a stack of exhibits
and recording equipment.

Everyone watched in stunned silence as she extricated herself,
rearranged her disheveled dress and hair and was reseated on the witness
stand. The glare she directed at onlookers dared anyone to so much as

"Well, doctor," continued the district attorney without changing
expression, "we could start with an easier question."

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
