Honeybees have hair on their eyes.


About 24 percent of alcoholics die in accidents, falls, fires,
and suicides.


Results of a survey show that 76 percent of women make their
bed every day, compared to 46 percent of men.



Because microwave ovens cook so fast, microbes can survive
on the surface of the food. To counteract this problem,
cover the cooking dish with another dish of glass or ceramic,
not plastic. The steam that accumulates will heat the surface,
thus killing any surviving microscopic critters.



The coldest place in the solar system is the surface of
Neptune's largest moon Triton, which has a temperature of
-391 degrees Fahrenheit, only 69 degrees Fahrenheit above
absolute zero.



Even if the stomach, the spleen, 75 percent of the liver, 80
percent of the intestines, one kidney, one lung, and virtually
every organ from the pelvic and groin area are removed, the
human body can still survive.

Dear Howdy,

Recently, while I was on a shopping trip in a department
store in Chapel Hill*, I heard a UNC student talking to her
date on the down escalator. She said, "Hey Bubba, what
do they do when the basement gets full of steps?"

There is no way that chemical reactions and electrical
impulses among the brain's cells can explain a sense
of right and wrong, the beauty of a sunset, or the rational
and moral choices we continually make. No material of
any kind, either in the brain or outside of it, has any
qualities to explain our ability to understand ideas such as
truth, justice, holiness, mercy, and grace. These concepts
are totally nonphysical. They do not originate within the
brain, nor are they a conditioned response to anything
anywhere in the entire physical universe.

Indeed, the brain does not think at all. If thoughts
originated in the brain, we would be prisoners of our
brains, wondering what our brain would think of next,
and compelled to do whatever the brain decided. On
the contrary, every person is convinced that he or she
makes rational choices by weighing alternatives, not
because the brain gets an impulse to make the body act
in a certain way. While we are prone to react impulsively
to the stimuli of physical temptations that breed lust,
we are not forced to do so. The moral struggles we all
experience to resist temptation are proof that we are not
stimulus-response mechanisms ruled by impulses but
that we do make genuine choices, though our choices
are not always rational or morally right.

"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."

You have the highest of human trusts committed to your care. Providence has
showered on this favored land blessings without number, and has chosen you
as the guardians of freedom, to preserve it for the benefit of the human
race. May He who holds in His hands the destinies of nations, make you
worthy of the favors He has bestowed ... -- President Andrew Jackson*

Because an increasing number of people are having heart
attacks while gambling, the big, high-class casinos are
now equipped with sophisticated defibrillators. They are
computer-controlled to deliver the exact electric shock
needed to revive a heart attack victim. That is, if you're
at a big, high-class casino.

At the cheaper casinos downtown, they just drag you across
the carpet and touch your finger to the doorknob.

America's Biblical Roots
by Charles Colson

It's a bittersweet day in the ancient Near East
thousands of years ago: The thrill of being home
again after years of exile is tempered by the
humiliation of still being vassals of Persia. A
tattered band of Hebrews gathers for several
days of prayer, worship, and teaching.

Nehemiah leads the former exiles in a time of
national confession and repentance. Then they pledge
themselves in a binding agreement to live for God and
obey His commandments. Nehemiah draws up a new
governing charter for Israel, drafted in accordance
with God's laws.

It would be a pattern for generations to come.
Thousands of years later, in 1620, the Pilgrims draft
yet another governing charter-the Mayflower Compact.
They open their Bibles and read the account of
Nehemiah. In imitation of the covenant pattern
described there, they draw up their own set of mutual obligations.

The Mayflower Pilgrims saw themselves as the New
Israelites building a New Jerusalem in the American
wilderness. So the Old Testament pattern of
government by charter seemed only fitting.

The tradition started by Nehemiah continued
throughout the settlement of the New World. Every
Puritan colony drew up its own constitutional charter
following the pattern of the Mayflower Compact.

It began in 1639, when the great Puritan evangelist
Thomas Hooker directed the drafting of Connecticut's
constitution. The Reverend Hooker required that each
article in the constitution be justified by
references to Scripture.

This document became the blueprint for the
constitution of every other colony in the New World.
When it was time to construct a national
constitution, the drafters imitated the pattern
already set in the colonies.

So we can trace a straight line from Nehemiah,
dedicating himself and the people to God in ancient
Israel, to the founding of our own nation and form of government.

It's good to remind ourselves that the constitutional freedoms
we enjoy did not come out of nowhere. They did not come
from the ancient Greeks, who contributed in many
other ways to our Western heritage. Nor did they
derive from secular philosophies, though these, too,
have contributed to our heritage.

No, America's most fundamental ideas about law and
freedom stem from the biblical idea of a covenant, an
agreement freely entered into between God
and His people, outlining their mutual duties and privileges.

The great statesman Daniel Webster, on the 200th
anniversary of the Pilgrims' landing, noted that the
American Founders sought to base all our
institutions, civil and political, on the truths of
the Christian religion.

History textbooks often ignore the biblical roots of
the American system of government. Under the banner
of so-called "separation of church and state," our
school books are silent about the religious
influences that shaped our nation's history-to the
point where many Christians do not even realize the
enormous impact our faith has had on the American heritage.

Let us commit ourselves to educating ourselves and
our children on the impact the Christian faith has had on
America's constitutional form of government. And then let's
recommit ourselves to the practice of confession and
prayer for our nation. For there's truly no greater
hope in times like these.

Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect,
self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love, and in endurance.
--Titus 2:2

Worthy of respect! What a goal for our lives whether we are
men or women! Don't you want your life to reflect the
character of God because our faith expresses itself in a life
of self-control. This work of the Spirit in our lives happens
only as we dedicate ourselves to being what He is at work
trying to accomplish in us.

Muhammad or Jesus???

(Not amalgamated with 'Thought & Humor')


I lift up my eyes to the hills -- where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

--Psalm 121:1-2

In a world of startling beauty and a universe of dazzling
diversity, our hearts are to be drawn back to the One who
made it and now sustains it. He knows us and will help us
if we will believe what He has tried so many ways to say:
"I love you as my child and I care what happens to you
and those you love."

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
