Thoughts to Ponder

(From an EMAIL I received)
Don't let your worries get the best of you .. remember, Moses started out as a basket case.

Some people are kind, polite, and sweet-spirited until you try to sit in their pews.

Many folks want to serve God, but only as advisors.

It is easier to preach ten sermons, than it is to live one.

The good Lord didn't create anything without a purpose, but mosquitoes come close.

When you get to your wit's end, you'll find God lives there.

People are funny .. they want the front of the bus, the middle of the road, and the back of the church.

Opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on your front door forever.

Quit griping about your church --- if it was perfect, you couldn't belong.

If the church wants a better pastor, it only needs to pray for the one it has.

Some minds are like concrete --- thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.

Peace starts with a smile.

I don't know why some people change churches . what difference does it make which one you stay home from?

A lot of church members who are singing "Standing on the Promises" are just sitting on the premises.

We were called to be witnesses, not lawyers or judges.

Be ye fishers of men. You catch them - He'll clean them.

Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.

Don't put a question mark where God put a period.

Don't wait for 6 strong men to take you to church.

Forbidden fruits create many jams.

God doesn't call the qualified ... He qualifies the called.

God grades on the cross, not the curve.

God loves everyone, but probably prefers "fruits of the spirit" over "religious nuts."

God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.

He who angers you ... controls you.

If God is your Co-pilot ... swap seats.

Don't give God instructions ... just report for duty.

The task ahead of us is never as great as the Power behind us.

The Will of God never takes you to where the Grace of God will not protect you.

We don't change the message ... the message changes us.

You can tell how big a person is by what it takes to discourage him.

The best mathematical equation I have ever seen: 1 cross + 3 nails = 4 given.

The term "Shocking Pictures" used in the series of photos (see above) lost some of its meaning because all the photos are not being presented at one time. The commercial press believes in the phrase "if it bleeds, it leads". Certainly The news from Iraq is terrible, but there are some good things happening there and that's what the pictures we've been running are about-The heart warming, caring stuff.

you may want to know this about ALL CELL PHONES

Have you ever wondered why phone companies don't seem interested in trying to prevent the theft of mobile phones? If you have ever lost, or had one stolen, and if you are on a plan, you still have to pay the plan approximately up to 24 months, and you have to buy another handset and enter into another contract. This is more revenue for the phone company.

There is a simple way of making lost or stolen mobiles useless to thieves and the phone companies know about it, but keep it quiet. To check your mobile phone's serial number, key in the following on your phone: star-hash-zero-six-hash ( * # 0 6 # ) and a fifteen digit code will appear on the screen. (this does not work on all cell phones) This is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it safe. Should your mobile phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset, so even if the thief changes the sim card, your phone will be totally useless.

You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell It either. If everybody did this, there would be no point in stealing mobile phones. You may want to send this to as many people with mobiles as possible.

No charge for directory assistance Phone companies are charging us $1.00 or more for 411 - information calls when they don't have to. When you need to use the 411 / information option!, simply dial 1-800-FREE-411 or 1 800 373 3411 without incurring a charge. This is information people don't mind receiving - Pass it on. Works on home phones and cell phones, However it does have some drawbacks. They always say that the system too busy for them to provide automatic dialing and sometimes you get a busy signal when trying to reach them but it is definitely cheaper.

Stress Management

A lecturer, when explaining stress management to an audience, raised a glass of water and asked, "How heavy is this glass of water?" Answers called out ranged from 20g to 500g. The lecturer replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter." It depends on how long you try to hold it. "If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, you'll have to call an ambulance. "In each case, it's the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes." He continued, "And that's the way it is with stress management.

If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won't be able to carry on. As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again. When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden. So, before you return home tonight, put the burden of work down. Don't carry it home. You can pick it up tomorrow. Whatever burdens you're carrying now, let them down for a moment if you can. Relax; pick them up later after you've rested."

With a score as diverse as America's melting pot, the show draws upon traditional Jewish folk sounds, Vaudevillian compositions, and Joplin and Jazz to capture the soul and sentiment of this turning point in our history.
