Chapel Hill Inn

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

My friend Judy was working at the Chapel Hill Inn when she
answered a call for information about the inn. After finishing
the conversation, Judy stepped away from the desk.

When the phone rang again, a UNC student intern took the call.

"I forgot to ask something." the caller said, "How are the
rooms appointed?"

"Well, six of them are appointed west," the student said,
"and the rest are appointed east."

UNC is the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.
Specializing in a wide range of degree programs including:
B.A. A.H.F.(Advanced Hamburger Flipping), N.U.T., A.P.E., B.R.C.
(Bar Room Conversations), etc. Institution was founded in 1898
for sons/daughters of local Chapel Still politicians that were
unable to qualify for the more prestigious institutions of higher
learning such as Duke, Wake Forest, and N.C. State.

A UNC student had a near death experience when she went
horseback riding the other day. Everything was going fine until
the horse started bouncing out of control.

She tried with all her might to hang on, but was thrown off.
Just when things could not possibly get worse, her foot got
caught in the stirrup. When this happened, she fell head
first to the ground.

Her head continued to bounce harder as the horse did not
stop or even slow down.

Just as she was giving up hope and losing consciousness,
the Walmart manager happened to walk by and unplug the ride.


Here is some Presidential Trivia:

» Thomas Jefferson's father was one of the surveyors who
laid out the Virginia/North Carolina border.

» President Ulysses S. Grant was once arrested during his
term of office. He was convicted of exceeding the Washington
speed limit on his horse and was fined $20.

» Though his wife Martha had four children by a previous
marriage, George Washington left no direct descendant. He
never sired a child to continue his family line.

» President William H. Taft was once offered a contract to
pitch for the Cincinnati Reds.

» John Adams was the first president to have a son become
president. His wife, Abigail Smith, was very influential and
known as an engaging conversationalist and a wonderful writer
of letters.

» John Adams was central to the Revolution and to the creation
of the Declaration of Independence and the government under
the Constitution.

» To enforce integration, Dwight Eisenhower, a Republican,
ordered the U.S. National Guard to escort students into the
Little Rock High School in Little Rock, Arkansas.

» Two towns in Vermont claim to be President Chester A. Arthur's birthplace, but recent research supports his opponents'
charges that he was born in Canada, and therefore, was not
eligible to be president under the U.S. Constitution.

Considering the current state of morality in the world today, I was
pleasantly surprised to see an article entitled “New clothing line makes
sexual abstinence a fashion statement.” Taking abstinence education into the
21st century, a new clothing line called Wait Wear gives teens and young
adults the opportunity to literally wear their commitment to abstain from
sexual activity on their sleeves. The clothing line combines hip fashion and
and moral conviction and creatively demonstrate its owner is waiting until
marriage to engage in sex. The company slogan is W2. It offers a wide range
of clothing options and provides a symbolic badge which youth can use to
remind themselves and others of the standards by which they have chosen to
live their lives.

The clothing line called Wait Wear also features items with slogans such as
“No Vow, No Sex,” “Virginity Lane: Exit When Married,” “Traffic Control:
Wait for Marriage,” and “No Overnight Parking” to name a few. The creator
of this clothing line believes Wait Wear gives teens and young adults the
ability to express their convictions boldly. She further states, it’s about
being proud of the choice that I have made as it relates to my sexuality.[1]
Recently, it seems that the abstinence as an option before marriage has
gained significant support. President Bush increased federal funding for
abstinence programs, doubling it from $135 million to $270 million.

According to a recent study in Newsweek, more than one third of U.S. high
schools include abstinence in their sex education curricula, and there are
over 700 individual abstinence programs operating across the country. One
such program is “The Advantage Plan” in Illinois. Recently it held an awards
banquet to honor those persons who had volunteered and participated in the
program. The goal of this group is to reach 8,640 youth in Cook County. To
date, their abstinence educators have been in 67 schools and community
organizations. They expect to reach 9,500 young people with the message of
abstinence as a lifestyle by the end of the summer. The group attributes its
success in great part to youth being aware and determined to make a positive
change in their lives. These are certainly worthwhile values for every young

As I read this article, I was reminded of Paul's instructions to Timothy
wherein he tells him to “watch [his] life and to set an example in purity.”[2]
It seems that the young people in this article have gotten the essence of
what it means to live a wholesome life. As believers we must be about the
business of modeling and teaching our young people about abstinence and
what it means to live a godly life. Berlean M. Burris

History Lesson

Have a history teacher explain this----- if they can.

Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.
John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.

Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.

Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.
Both wives lost their children while living in the White House.

Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.
Both Presidents were shot in the head.

Now it gets really weird.

Lincoln's secretary was named Kennedy.
Kennedy's Secretary was named Lincoln.

Both were assassinated by Southerners.
Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson.

Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808.
Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.

John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1839.
Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.

Both assassins were known by their three names.
Both names are composed of fifteen letters.

Now hang on to your seat.

Lincoln was shot at the theater named 'Ford.'
Kennedy was shot in a car called 'Lincoln' made by 'Ford.'

Lincoln was shot in a theater and his assassin ran and hid in a warehouse.
Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and his assassin ran and hid in a theater.

Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials.

And here's the kicker...

A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe, Maryland
A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with Marilyn Monroe.

Creepy huh?

An off-duty police officer, familiar with radar
speed checking equipment, drove through
a school zone within the legal speed limit
when suddenly the flash of a camera went
off, taking a picture of his license plate.

The officer, thinking the radar was in error,
drove by again; even more slowly. Another
flash. He did it again for a third time, at an
even slower speed. Same result. So, he
made a note to himself to contact the traffic
department and tell them that their machine
wasn't working properly.

A few weeks later, the off-duty police officer
received an envelope from the police
department containing three traffic citations,
each of them were for NOT wearing a seat

A young ventriloquist is touring the clubs and stops to entertain in
one of the many bars in Chapel Hill. He's going through his usual
run of stupid UNC jokes, when a large, UNC student in the fourth
row stands on his chair and says "I've heard just about enough of
your denigrating UNC jokes."

He continues to berate him: "What makes you think you can
stereotype UNC that way? What does a person's school
have to do with their worth as a human being and intelligence?
It's guys like you who keep future UNC grads like me from
being respected at work and in the community, or of reaching
their full potential as a person, because you and your kind continue
to perpetuate discrimination against UNC, all in the name of humor."

Flustered, the ventriloquist begins to apologize, when the student
pipes up, "You stay out of this, Mister. I'm talking to that little
jerk on your knee!"

'The Terrifying Flight'
A Mini-Novel by Howdy

Setting: Sometime in the future. A hugh winged man with a fierce
countenance has just placed a man-of-the-world in heavy manacles.

Man: What's the meaning of this?
Angel: You heard the sentence.

Man: I know but I was hoping for a retrial, an appeal, or something!!!
Angel: There is none now.

Man: When WAS there ever one?
Angel: Before you departed your world.

Man: You mean croaked?
Angel: (Silence)

The scene changes as they both lift away from the courtroom
and hover briefly before commencing the final & terrifying journey.

Man: How long is this going to take?
Angel: Unfortunately for you, not long.

Man: How far will we travel?
Angel: All the way to the center of your galaxy.

Man: What's there? A black hole?
Angel: (Nod's affirmatively)

Man: Is that... is it... really - you know Hell?
Angel: (Nod's affirmatively)

Man: ...but I thought God was a God of Love?
Angel: He is.

Man: Then why all this! Why doesn't He love me?
Angel: He does (with a tear in his eye).

Man: This isn't fair! He never loved me! He never told me about all this.
Angel: Did you not own 7 copies of THE BOOK in your lifetime?

Man: You mean the Bible?
Angel: Yes.

Man: I suppose but it was dull, boring & not intrinsic to me.
Angel: It was very relevant. It tells how God loved you so much that
He sent the King of Kings to take you punishment - but sadly you declined.

Man: My family warned me but I thought that I wanted a "good time" and
not a bunch of rules! Besides, my prof taught me that the Bible was bigoted,
politically incorrect, homophobic & a myth.
Angel: Unfortunately, I transported your professor on the previous

Man: Will I see him there - I'll punch out his #%!& lights.
Angel: I am the last living soul you or he will ever see.

Man: ...but I always thought that I could have fun with all my friends
Angel: You will see no one ever again (again tears).

Man: How is that possible???
Angel: All will be there that declined the free offer from the "King of
Kings" & sadly and unfortunately that was the preponderance of mankind.

Man: Were they all conned like me?
Angel: Yes, but many followed false gods, messiahs, religions.

Man: What will my prison be like?
Angel: After experiencing the place where you will spend forever, any prison
anywhere at anytime in human history would have been a paradise.

Man: Meaning???
Angel: The immense gravity will pull & tear on you. Gasping for air, the
prodigious smoke will fill your lungs. The searing heat - far hotter than
your Sun (a mere star) - will torment your body. The thirst in your throat
and being will be unquenchable. None will you ever see but all will you hear
wailing, but worst of all will be your memory.

Man: (Pausing with a smirk) Memory of what?
Angel: Memory of what you did to others and a growing realization of what
you would have been had you acceded to the pardon from the "King of Kings".

Man: What did I ever do to others?
Angel: What was brought out in your litigation - the way you neglected &
manipulated your family & friends. The way you took advantage of women
for your OWN gratification.

Man: (Changing the subject) I thought all ways led to God in the end.
Angel: In His Book He stated that He (Jesus - King of Kings) was the
ONLY way. Either He was right or He was wrong.

Man: I see now that all those other ways were terrible deceptions!
Angel: (Silence)

Man: Is this it???
Angel: I'm sorry but yes.

Man: Will I ever have a chance to leave?
Angel: No, never.

Man: I'll tell you and that King of yours one thing: I'd rather be HERE
than around that all consuming brightness

The scene concludes with the man being released screaming/shrieking/wailing
into the Black Hole which will never be able to release any of it's eternally
terrified & tortured occupants because they had each purposely
chosen to decline the pardon from the loving "King of Kings". God was
willing that none should perish- no not one - but many decide otherwise.
Please don't allow this to be your future trip.

My wife and I were traveling on the Kansas Turnpike,
bucking 30 to 45 mph crosswinds. At the tollbooth,
I asked the attendant, "What do you people do in
Kansas when the wind quits?"

The tollbooth attendant didn't miss a beat when she
answered, "We take the rocks out of our pockets."

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
