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

I don't know why some people change
churches . what difference does it make which one you stay
A lot of church members who are singing
"Standing on the Promises" are just sitting on the premises.

over "religious nuts."
God promises a safe landing,
not a calm passage.

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
The Will of God never takes you to where

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 PHONESHave
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
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
Stress ManagementA 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
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

Ragtime paints a nostalgic portrait of life at the
dawn of 20th century. This new musical intertwines the lives
of three New York families with historical figures including
Henry Ford, Harry Houdini, J.P. Morgan, and Booker T.
Washington in a weaving of fact and fiction. 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.
