The Atlanta Braves

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

A Braves' pitcher was struggling at the mound,
so the catcher walked out to have a talk with him.

"I've figured out your problem," he told the young
southpaw. "You always seem to lose control at the
same point in every game."

"When is that?" asked the kid.

"Right after the National Anthem."

“Would you create a world with such pain,” the skeptic charges, “and if you
did, could you at the same time still be called good?“.

Plainly speaking, there are only four possible worlds. The first is that
there be no creation at all. Would it not have been better for God to have
not created a world than to have created ours—where good and evil are both
possibilities? The second is a world where only good is permitted, a kind
of robotically beneficent universe. The third option is a world where
there is no such thing as good or evil, an amoral world. There, right and
wrong would not even be legitimate categories for consideration. The
fourth is the world that we live in, where good and evil exist with the
possibility of choosing either.

In the final analysis, our world is the only one where love is genuinely
possible because freedom is a precondition for authentic love. We
intuitively recognize that love is the supreme ethic and where love is
possible, freedom is necessary. Where freedom is real, so is the
possibility of suffering.

Perhaps you picture God observing our world like an astronaut viewing the
earth while in orbit—abstract and distant. But this is not God of the
Scriptures! He has not removed himself from the dimensions of our
experience, nor has He left us to our own devices. Rather He has powerfully
broken into our reality.

How? Through the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Outside of
a Christian worldview, this may seem odd, and even the apostle Paul said
this reality appears “foolish” to the unbeliever. Yet when you perceive the
infinite holiness of God and His boundless love, we see God’s twin desires
fulfilled in the Cross: His holiness satisfied through suffering, and
motivated by love strong enough to endure pain.

In the Cross love, holiness and suffering are brought together. God cannot
be at the same time both holy and unloving, or both loving and unholy. Who
of us cannot understand that love cannot exist without goodness? Our
hearts hunger for a love that is pure. If we turn our backs upon God, we
lose not only the source of defining love, but even our suffering remains
an enigma—leaving our finite minds crying for an answer.

Even Mahatma Gandhi concluded that the display of grace in the crucifixion
is without comparison. Have you made the extraordinary discovery that in
love Jesus bore the cost of our freedom gone wrong? Ravi Zacharias

Doctors can be frustrating. You wait a month-and-a-half for an
appointment, and he says, "I wish you'd come to me sooner."


1726: "Gulliver's Travels" First Sold to Public

A book entitled "Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World"
went on sale in England, supposedly written by a restless sailor
called Lemuel Gulliver. Popularly known as "Gulliver's Travels," the
book was actually written by Jonathan Swift (1667-1745), an Irish-
born Anglican priest. Swift avoided using his real name because he
feared the book's biting satire of the political establishment might
get him into trouble. It has remained in print for more than a
quarter of a millennium.

A brief biography of Jonathan Swift:


Two UNC accounting students go on a fishing trip. They
rent all the equipment - the reels, the rods, the wading suits,
the rowboat, the car, and even a cabin in the woods.

The first day they go fishing they don't catch anything.
The same thing happens on the second day, and on the third
day. It goes on like this until finally, on the last day of
their vacation, one of the men catches a fish.

As they're driving home they're really depressed. One turns to the
other and says, "Do you realize that this one lousy fish we caught
cost us fifteen hundred bucks?"

The reply is, "Wow! Then it's a good thing we didn't catch any more!"

by Red Skelton

The following words were spoken by the late Red Skelton on his television program as he related the story of his teacher, Mr. Laswell, who felt his students had come to think of the Pledge of Allegiance as merely something to recite in class each day.

Now, more than ever, listen to the meaning of these words.

"I've been listening to you boys and girls recite the Pledge of Allegiance all semester and it seems as though it is becoming monotonous to you. If I may, may I recite it and try to explain to you the meaning of each word?"

I -- me, an individual, a committee of one.

Pledge -- dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without self pity.

Allegiance -- my love and my devotion.

To the flag -- our standard, Old Glory, a symbol of freedom. Wherever she waves, there's respect because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts freedom is everybody's job!

United -- that means that we have all come together.

States -- individual communities that have united into 48 great states. Forty-eight individual communities with pride and dignity and purpose; all divided with imaginary boundaries, yet united to a common purpose, and that's love for country.

And to the republic -- a state in which sovereign power is invested in representatives chosen by the people to govern. And government is the people and it's from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.

For which it stands, one nation -- one nation, meaning "so blessed by God"

Indivisible -- incapable of being divided.

With liberty -- which is freedom -- the right of power to live one's own life without threats, fear or some sort of retaliation.

And Justice -- the principle or quality of dealing fairly with others.

For all -- which means, boys and girls, it's as much your country as it is mine.

Since I was a small boy, two states have been added to our country and two words have been added to the pledge of Allegiance...


Wouldn't it be a pity if someone said that is a prayer and that would be eliminated from schools too?

God Bless America!

Dear Howdy,

As, always, a great T&H! I am reminded today of what a truly great servant
you are for Christ! Putting together such a varied and always new and
interesting publication for the whole world to read is nothing short of a
huge task and challenge. You show grace and love towards all those who send
you negative comments (putting that lightly, occasionally) and display great
consideration and concern for all of your readers. In that, you personify
Christ. I admire your efforts and your efforts must not be underestimated.

GOD BLESS YOU HOWDY for you work in the Great Commission!!!

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door
to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime
left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the
next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman
opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She
thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He
drank it slowly, and then asked, How much do I owe you?" You don't
owe me anything," she replied. "Mother has taught us never to accept
pay for a kindness"! He said..... "Then I thank you from my heart."

As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger
physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been
ready to give up and quit.

Many years later that same young woman became critically
ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city,
where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard
Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name
of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately
he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room. Dressed in
his doctor's gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He
went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save
her life. From that day he gave special attention to her case.

After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the
business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it,
then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room. She
feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay
for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the
side of the bill. She read these words.....

"Paid in full with one glass of milk"
(Signed) Dr. Howard Kelly.

Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed:

"Thank You, God, that Your love has spread broad through human hearts
and hands."

Dear Howdy,

A college student challenged a senior citizen, saying it was
impossible for their generation to understand his.
"You grew up in a different world," the student said.
"Today we have television, jet planes, space travel, nuclear energy,

Taking advantage of a pause in the student's litany, the geezer said,
"You're right. We didn't have those things when we were young;
so we invented them! What are you doing for the next generation??"

(I love old people! We do have a lot to offer!!!)

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
