Howdy Resume

My first job was working in an orange juice factory,
but I got canned ... couldn't concentrate.

Then I worked in the woods as a lumberjack,
but I just couldn't hack it, so ...they gave me the ax.

After that I tried to be a tailor,
but I just wasn't suited for it. Mainly because was a so-so job.

Next I tried working in a muffler factory,
but that ...was exhausting.

I wanted to be a barber, but
...I just couldn't cut it.

Then I tried to be a chef -- figured it would add a
little spice to my life, but I just
...didn't have the thyme.

I attempted to be a deli worker,
but any way I sliced it, I...couldn't cut the mustard.

My best job was being a musician,
but eventually I found ...I wasn't noteworthy.

I studied a long time to become a doctor,
but I...didn't have any patients.

Next was a job in a shoe factory;
I tried but I ...just didn't fit in.

I became a professional fisherman,
but discovered that I ...couldn't live on my
net income.

I managed to get a good job working for a
pool-maintenance company,
but the work was ...just too draining.

I got a job at a zoo feeding giraffes,
but I was fired because I ...wasn't up to it.

So then I got a job in a fitness-center,
but they said I ...wasn't fit for the job.

Next, I found being an electrician interesting,
but the work was shocking and I ...was discharged.

After many years of trying to find steady work I finally
got a job as a historian until I realized there was future in it.

My last job was working at Starbucks,
but I had to quit because it ...was always the same
old grind.

A guy was trying to teach his UNC girlfriend how to play
golf and figured that the best place to start was the driving
range. Upon arrival, the UNC coed sees a sign that says
the golf balls rent by the bucket..large $4.50, medium $3.00
and small $1.50. She turned to her boyfriend and said
"How can you tell the large balls from the small balls,
they all look the same size to me".

Nearly a century and a half ago, Charles Darwin conceded, "To suppose that
the eye with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different
distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of
spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection,
seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree." He wrote botanist Asa
Gray, "The eye to this day gives me a cold shudder." And Darwin didn't know
nearly as much as we do about the sophistication of the signal processing from
the eye and the nose.

All of this leads to a logical closing question: If researchers earn Nobel
Prizes for discovering such intricacies in our sensory organs, doesn't the
Intelligent Designer of all of this intricacy deserve some recognition?

Our oldest son had just graduated from a wonderful Christian college.
Most of his good friends were headed for careers in business or the
professions - which can be great places to serve God. But his calling was to
go as a missionary to an Indian reservation among a people listed by some
world prayer people as one of the most unreached people groups in North
America. We knew it wasn't going to be easy. In fact, his first place to
sleep at night was a little storeroom, where he slept on a table so he
wouldn't be a snack for the critters on the floor. He was there pretty much
on his own, and he was just starting to try to break down some walls and
meet some of the tribal young people there. He'd been there a couple of
weeks when he called us one morning at sunrise his time. He had driven
about eight miles to find a phone to call from. It was the kind of call a parent
can't forget. He said, "Mom, Dad, I've got to tell you I've probably never
been so lonely in my life. In college, I had friends whenever I wanted them,
I could go out on a date whenever I wanted to, I could get some money
together when I needed to. But here, I have none of those things." To be
honest, our parents' hearts were really aching at that point. And then we
were blown away by his unexpected conclusion. He said, "But I've also got
to tell you this - I've never had such peace in my life. I'm where I was born
to be, doing what I was born to do!"

It could be that your life has been very full, but not very
fulfilling. What you're doing may be successful, but not necessarily
significant. It may be cheered by men, but not very important to God, and
you're restless inside. You know there's got to be something more. Maybe
God is stirring your soul and trying to move you where you were born to be,
doing what you were born to do. And it's different from what you're doing
now. Don't be afraid of it. Be expectant. And be obedient - no matter how
risky that obedience looks. There's actually no such thing as a risky
obedience - only a risky disobedience.

In Jeremiah 1:5, our word for today from the Word of God, the Lord
says this to Jeremiah: "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before
you were born, I set you apart." When Jeremiah expresses his sense of being
inadequate to carry out his calling, God says, "You must go to everyone
I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them,
for I am with you."

On the one hand, these words applied particularly to the calling of
Jeremiah to be God's prophet. But the sense of what He said is true of
every child of God - including you. He formed you in the womb for special
purposes, as Paul says, "for good works He prepared in advance" for you to
do (Ephesians 2:10). And He's calling you to be where He made you to be,
doing what He made you to do. And it may be something different from what
you're doing now. You won't be able to see the whole road ahead, but He's
expecting you to start walking that direction right now, following the light
of His Word, and His leading through your prayers, and His defining

His call is for you to "offer your body as a living sacrifice, holy
and pleasing to God." Out of that surrender, you will, according to Romans
12, "be able to test and approve what God's will is - His good, pleasing and
perfect will." To follow Him to your designer destiny, you may have to defy
the drumbeat of the culture around you. You may be called foolish by those
who can't understand heaven's plans. You will almost surely have to proceed
by faith; trusting in the Lord who loves you, not in a plan that you can
control or figure out.

But, by all means, follow Him where He's taking you. The
alternative? A future filled with the bitter regrets of someone who knows
they've missed what they were put here for. Don't settle for anything less
than being where you were born to be, and doing what you were born to do.

Wherever Dr. Brian Sykes travels, he carries little swabs for collecting
genetic materials from strangers. Dr. Sykes, a human genetics professor at
Oxford University and a science adviser to the British House of Commons,
loves showing people the astonishing history hidden in their DNA. Zip! A
quick swipe of the inner cheek, and three weeks later, a report arrives
from, Dr. Sykes’ laboratory with surprising news that you have, say a West
African ancestor or a kinship to Genghis Khan.[1]

Dr. Sykes is one of the world’s most acclaimed geneticists, and is known
as a founder of bioarchaeology. That is, he uses a range of biological
techniques on archaeological material so that we can learn more about past
populations. He also is fascinated by how many people have grown interested
in the genetics of their ancestors. Genealogy has been revolutionized.

Here’s his final remark in the newspaper article: “I’ve tested hundreds of
people named “Sykes” and found that roughly 70 percent of us have the same Y
chromosome, and therefore, must be descended from one man.”

Let me visit with you about a spiritual bioarchaeology.

1.. The whole human race has descended from one man. That’s traceable
2.. Spiritually, this original man created a problem for the entire human
race by sinning and brought the consequence of physical and eternal death on
the whole human race!
3.. All people sin and therefore confirm their own legitimate
participation in physical and eternal death because they are related to this
one ancestor. We are locked in “sin”—a perpetual state of falling short of
God’s expectations and hitting the wrong mark characterizes us as humans.
(4) However, God sent a new Man for the human race to take care of our
sin and death problems. “Just as sin entered the world through one man and
death through sin, and so death spread to all people because all sinned,”
life has entered the human race through one man, and life can spread to all
people who want to join a new situation, a new sphere, a new ancestor. We
can defeat the old DNA necessity to sin, can be reconstituted with new DNA,
and defeat physical death into eternal life.

May I recommend that you don’t become imprisoned by your spiritual
bioarchaeology and that you find liberation from that imprisonment into new
life, by acknowledging God’s new representative for the human race, the Lord
Jesus Christ?

Yes, we have descended from one ancestor but we can choose to belong
to another spiritual ancestor to counter the inclinations and implications of
the original one man. Our spiritual genetic map can be reconstituted. This
new spiritual chromosome is so powerful it overrides and overpowers the
Adamic chromosome, so that you and I have options now.

That’s God’s opinion, the only one that counts, and this is Ramesh Richard
of RREACH International and Dallas Seminary for Moody Radio.

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


Kite aerial photography (KAP) has arrived! It is a whole new way of
capturing images. By launching a camera on a kite, you get a topsy-
turvy view of the world.

Familiar subjects appear drastically different when shot from above.
A palm tree becomes a fireworks display. A fountain becomes a meteor.
Just wait until you view the clip of Bryce Canyon...

This is really dramatic -- almost addictive!

I'd had enough of my employees abusing their allotted break time.
In an effort to clarify my position, I posted a sign on the bulletin board:

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
