The Two Wolves
An old Grandfather, whose grandson came to him with anger at a
schoolmate who had done him an injustice, said, "Let me tell you a
story. I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those that have
taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do. But hate wears you
down, and does not hurt your enemy. It is like taking poison and
wishing your enemy would die. I have struggled with these feelings
many times."

He continued, "It is as if there are two wolves inside me; one is good
and does no harm. He lives in harmony with all around him and does not
take offense when no offense was intended. He will only fight when it
is right to do so, and in the right way."

"But the other wolf, ah! He is full of anger. The littlest thing will
set him into a fit of temper. He fights everyone, all the time, for no
reason. He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great. It is
hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to
dominate my spirit."

The boy looked intently into his Grandfather's eyes and asked, "Which
one wins, Grandfather?"

The Grandfather solemnly said, "The one I feed."

"As Is"
Jill Carattini

In my mother's antique shop were a variety of treasures for a curious
child. My personal favorite was the Victrola that sat stately in the
corner, a large internal phonograph that begged to be heard. The sounds
it made were bold and cavernous, like an opera in a wooden box. This one
was an early model, so I heard adults say, and it was in great condition.
So it seemed peculiar to me that our frequent requests to put it into
action were, from time to time, resisted. To me it was a perfect
treasure, a magnificent and flawless toy. To the owner of the store, it
was a treasure that was capable of breaking before it sold. "As is" was
not a phrase she wanted to add to the price tag.

"As is" was a label that was seen occasionally within the shop, conveying
an item with damage or brokenness of some sort. "As is" marked the clock
that had stopped ticking, or the rocking horse that had a crack in one of
its legs. Because I knew my mother as one who could fix almost anything,
the label also conveyed to me a certain sense of defeat. Whatever the
item, it was a lost cause--a treasure bearing some distinguishable,
irreparable flaw.

I suspect from time to time many of us feel something like the object
marked "as is" or the treasure with only a matter of time before something
goes awry. With a sense of defeat, we view our lives through the lens of
what is broken or has been broken, what is irreparable or what might
break. Looking ahead, we see the baggage behind us, which seems to
declare emphatically our status "as is."

Writing centuries before our own, King David wrote of God:

You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it;
you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart,
O God, you will not despise (Psalm 51:16-17).

Such words run counter to cultures anywhere. Brokenness is usually not
something we are comfortable admitting, let alone presenting it as
something that is pleasing to anyone. Whether in ourselves or in others,
we are at times almost averse to fragility. Even as Christians who hold
knowingly to the cruciform image of Christ, we seem now and then
distinctly uncomfortable with broken and grieving people, defeated and
weakened lives. Yet it is by the Cross that we live: "Surely he took up
our infirmities and carried our sorrows... But he was pierced for our
transgressions, crushed for our iniquities" (Isaiah 53:4-5). Isn't it
strange that we who are saved by one who was broken should struggle in the
presence of brokenness at all?

Like the psalmist, the apostle points to the potential within fragility.
"But 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. We always carry around
in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be
revealed in our body (2 Corinthians 4:7-10).

Whether we come to God shattered by our own sin, like David, or broken
from living in an imperfect world, we are never so near Him as when we
come with nothing in our hands to offer. God's desire is that we would
come as we are--weary or heavy laden, defeated or broken by life. Before
the Cross, there is no lost cause or irreparable flaw. For in life, as in
an antique shop, there would be no recognition of brokenness if there were
not such a thing as wholeness.

As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has
compassion on those who fear Him. --Psalm 103


"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."
-- President Abraham Lincoln


Q. What did one pickle say to the other?
A. "You mean a great dill to me."




A wave breaks when the water underneath supporting the wave
is only about 1.3 times as deep as the wave is high. When
that happens, the water at the crest is moving faster than
the water below. Most often, waves break in shallow water
near the shore, but waves may also break father off if the
wave is high enough.


When a piece of glass cracks, the crack travels
faster than 3,000 miles per hour.



Jewelers recognize four organic substances as gemstones: ivory,
pearl, amber, and coral. Other precious and semi-precious gems
are considered minerals.


The slang word "yahoo" first appeared in Swift's 1726 book
"Gulliver’s Travels" as the name of a race of sub-human brutes.



It is widely believed that if an electric chair or gas chamber
should fail to operate, or the rope breaks during a hanging,
the prisoner must go free because he cannot twice be put in
jeopardy for the same offense. But this is a confusion between
the trial and the sentence. A man cannot, under the Constitution
be tried twice for the same offense. But once he has been con-
victed and sentenced, then the sentence must be carried out,
malfunctioning equipment or not, if the law is to be followed.


Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church
and gave Himself up for her to make her holy. --Ephesians 5


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 of salvation. - - - Dr. Woodrow Kroll


"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even
though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who
neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that
knows neither victory nor defeat." -- Teddy Roosevelt

them with a dip, the calories would be neutralized.

The better food tasted, the less calories it
would have.

Millions of years ago, there was no such thing as the wheel.
One day, some primitive guys were watching their wives drag
a dead mastodon to the food & fire area. It was exhausting
work; the guys were getting tired just watching.

Then they noticed some large, smooth, rounded boulders and
they had a great idea! They could sit on top of the boulders
and get a better view of their wives working.

This was the first in a series of breakthroughs that ulti-
mately led to television...and later to the remote control.

"Though I do not appreciate some of his humor, Science fiction novelist Kurt
Vonnegut writes with fantastic imagination. In one scene, main character
Kilgor Trout, sits content at a bar when he is suddenly overwhelmed by
someone or something that has entered the room. He begins to sweat,
uncomfortably aware of a presence far greater than himself.

Who is it? The author, Kurt Vonnegut, himself! The effect is
fascinating. When the author of the book steps into the novel, fiction is
lost within a higher reality—the reality of Kurt Vonnegut. But Vonnegut
has stepped into Kilgor's world for no other reason than to explain the
meaninglessness of Kilgor's life. Vonnegut came to explain to Kilgor face
to face that the very tiresome life he has led was, in fact, all due to
the author's pen.

In this twisted ending, Kilgor is forced to conclude that apart from the
author he does not exist. But ironically, he also must come to terms with
the fact that it is because of the author that his very existence has been
ridiculous. It is quite a story!

The Gospel writers tell a similar story, but it is one with consequences
in stark contrast to Vonnegut's tale. The Gospel of John tells it like
this: "The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his
glory, the glory as of a Father's only son, full of grace and truth… From
his fullness we have all received grace upon grace. The law indeed was
given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ" (John

Working in urban ministry several years ago, I saw a small glimpse of the
significance of the Incarnation of Christ. During the first year, I lived
in an apartment just outside the city. But during the second year I was
able to move into the neighborhood where many of the children involved in
our ministry lived. The difference was profound. Teenagers that
previously had held me at arms length came closer. Kids continually came
to my door to ask if I could play. I lived among them. In their minds, I
was now interested in their lives in a real and tangible way. I was a
hand to hold on the way home, a next-door neighbor to sit with on the
porch, a heart that knew both the joys and fears of the city. Stepping
into their world changed everything.

How much more the Author of life has stepped into our world to change our
lives. John relays as an eyewitness that Jesus Christ, God incarnate,
fully divine and fully human, came to live among our world in flesh and
blood. Eternity stepped into time bringing grace and truth; the Author of
life stepped into the presence of his creation bringing the message of
eternity, proclaiming the meaning of life. In intense contrast to the
author of Kilgor's life, God stepped into our world to touch the story of
our lives with his hand and his face, in order that we might know Him.

Think about this. The Author himself chose to become one of us, dying a
painful lonely death on behalf of us, all in order to reach us. This is
the story you are a part of. How will you respond? Let us not, as Isaiah
warned the people of his day, turn things upside down, regarding the
potter as the clay (Isaiah 29:16). Asks Isaiah, "Shall the thing that was
made say of its maker, 'He did not make me' or the thing formed say of him
who formed it, 'He has no understanding'?" To know the Author is to know
the way, the truth, and the life. He is the highest reality. He is the
meaning. And He wants to make sure that you know. Jill Carattini

Is Islam, in fact, a peaceful religion?

While public relations campaigns in America promote Islam
as being a peaceful religion, Christians around the world in countries
like Pakistan, Indonesia, and Sudan continue to suffer under this
shroud of misinformation. This is not to say that all Muslims are
either radical or promote violence. However, a further understanding
of Islamic teachings demonstrates the acceptance and even
encouragement of persecution against Christians as well as others
who oppose Islamic teaching.

Today in most Islamic controlled countries, Christians are under some threat
and possibly extreme danger for practicing any type of evangelism among
their neighbors. Even greater dangers loom for any Muslim who chooses to
convert to Christianity. While propaganda sweeps rapidly throughout the
United States, Christians must learn the truth. Americans must wake up to
the call to support those who are persecuted for their belief in Jesus

A Short Look at Six World Religions:


Pretty Stones &
Dead Babies

There's an abortion clinic in Pittsburgh that defies all the stereotypes.
The walls are lined with pink paper hearts containing heartfelt messages
from parents to their aborted children. Family members are encouraged
to write in a journal in the waiting room. And at the end of every pre-
abortion counseling session, the patient is given a pretty, colorful stone
to take with her.

What does a pretty, colorful stone have to do with abortion? The answer
proves to be as bizarre as the question.

This novel approach to abortion is the trademark of a group of abortion
clinics called the November Gang. A story in the September GLAMOUR
magazine explains that at these clinics, "intensive counseling is offered to
patients . . . Despite being staunchly pro-choice, counselors venture more
willingly into areas like grief and regret than at most abortion clinics."
They talk with the women about religious and psychological issues
and let the women talk about their feelings toward their unborn babies.

Though the story doesn't say so, I wouldn't be surprised if the members
of the November Gang are simply copying the counseling-centered
approach pioneered by pro-life crisis pregnancy centers. But what
the abortion clinic counselors are counseling is very different.

The GLAMOUR article reports, "One of the questions November
Gang clinics sometimes ask patients is, Can you see abortion as a
'loving act' toward your children and yourself?" Faced with that
query, "a lot of them are totally taken aback," says clinic director
Debi Jackson. "Then they actually think about it, and they're like,
'Yeah, that's what I'm doing. I do love this child, but I can't [have]
it right now.'" If a woman asks if God will forgive her, a counselor
will turn the question back to her: "'Do you think there are any
things that God considers completely unforgivable?'"

What these abortion counselors are doing is coaching patients to
twist their own words, emotions, and moral understanding so that
they can feel justified doing something that they're clearly acknow-
ledging is wrong. In language full of sentiment, these women are
gently encouraged to put their own short-term needs first, and not
to think about what's best both for their babies and themselves in
the long run.

The pink hearts signed "Mommy"; the informal baptism ceremonies
that some women hold after their abortions; the stones that the
women are told to "imbue . . . with whatever meaning they
choose" -- all these things meant to heal and comfort are rendered
duplicitous by the brutal act taking place. All the pink paper hearts
in the world don't change the fact that abortion is taking a life with
the mother's permission.

Pro-life advocates and counselors have been using the language
of help and healing for a long time now and with great results.
We need to keep doing that, but we also need to point out that
language can be deadly when it is not used in service of the truth.
Women do need to know that comfort and forgiveness are always
available through Christ, if repentance is sincere. But they also
need to understand that a child's life for a pretty, colorful stone
is a very bad deal. Chuck Colson

A man is walking along the beach when he trips over
something in the sand.

Upon examination, he sees that it's a genie's lamp. He
eagerly rubs the lamp and out pops a genie who says, "I am
the genie of the lamp. I have been trapped in this lamp for
1,000 years. For setting me free I will grant you one wish."

The man thought and thought. Finally, he pulled out a map
and said, "It's been my goal in life to do something for
mankind for which everyone else will remember me. You
see this region here on the map? It's called the Middle East
and it's a very violent region. I realize I could wish for
a lot of money, or fame, but I'd like to use this wish for
peace in the Middle East."

The genie looked disappointed. He said, "I'm sorry sir, but
I can't grant that wish. The people of that region have been
fighting for thousands of years. The wars go back many, many
generations. The religious battles and opinions run rampant
in that area. Boundary disputes are constantly occurring.
Violence and hatred is too far engrained into this part of
the world for even one of my wishes to do any good.

I'm sorry, but I just can't do that. Have you another wish?"

"Well," said the man. "If I can't do that for mankind,
perhaps I can do this for men. I would like to understand
how women work. What makes them laugh? What makes them cry?
What affects their emotions? How do I make them happy? Why
do they do the things they do? I wish I could fully
understand women."

The genie replied, "let me see that map again."

This is one of the better e-mails I have received in a long time! I hope this makes its way around the USA several times over!!!!! So Be It!


So if the US government determines that it is against the law for the words "under God" to be on our money, then, so be it.

And if that same government decides that the "Ten Commandments" are not to be used in or on a government installation, then, so be it.

And since they already have prohibited any prayer in the schools, on which they deem their authority, then so be it.

I say, "so be it," because I would like to be a law abiding US citizen.

I say, "so be it," because I would like to think that smarter people than I are in positions to make good decisions

I would like to think that those people have the American Publics' best interests at heart.


Since we can't pray to God, can't Trust in God and cannot Post His Commandments in Government buildings,

I don't believe the Government and it's employees should participate in the Easter and Christmas celebrations which honor the God that our government is eliminating from many facets of American life.

I'd like my mail delivered on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter. After all, it's just another day.

I'd like the US Supreme Court to be in session on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter as well as Sundays. After all, it's just another day.

I'd like the Senate and the House of Representatives to not have to worry about getting home for the "Christmas Break." After all it's just another day.

I'm thinking that a lot of my taxpayer dollars could be saved, if all government offices & services would work on Christmas, Good Friday & Easter.

It shouldn't cost any overtime since those would be just like any other day of the week to a government that is trying to be "politically correct."

In fact...

I think that our government should work on Sundays (initially set aside for worshipping God...) because, after all, our government says that it should be just another day....

What do you all think????

If this idea gets to enough people, maybe our elected officials will stop giving in to the minority opinions and begin, once again, to represent the 'majority' of ALL of the American people.

SO BE IT...........

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
