Having faith to get rid of the fat

February 29, 2008


I like the concept of taking care of the body and using your belief in God and Jesus Christ to help you stay on track. Where do I sign up? Do you agree with this way of weight loss?

Priest spent church money on secret family

February 22, 2008

A retired Roman Catholic priest was sentenced to 63 months in prison for stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from his parishioners, money he used in part to support his secret family.

My comment: I know that none of us is perfect and I will not be the first one to cast a stone, but you gotta admit that this is pretty low. I encourage you to pray for everyone involved in this situation.

Time for something a little more relevant. Hanky Panky!

February 19, 2008

How many husbands do you think are emailing this story to their wives? Or it could be the other way around, but if I were a betting man, and I am, I bet the husbands are winners in this email race. Oh and the marriage is the winner if you take the challenge. Glory to God, Amen.

Test your eyesight. No optician necessary. Try to find the differences!
This is a fun game, but you really have to look carefully to see the differences. You should get better with more practice. Check it out and tell me what you think!

Happy Valentines Day – Love Yourself

February 14, 2008

I try to start each day by spending some time with God.  One of my favorite ways to do that is to read the daily devotional from In Touch Ministries.  I found it interesting that today’s devotional, on Valentines Day, talks about loving yourself, having self-worth, and learning to love the person that God created you to be.  I encourage you all to check out the devotion for yourself, but I will share the bulk of it with you below.  Be encouraged!

“All people are valuable to the Lord. But the believer’s self-worth is rooted in the fact that we have a relationship with God. We are to care for ourselves, based upon the fact that He has provided for our salvation, given us the Holy Spirit, and developed a unique plan for our life.

Love of self is essential to God’s plan for every believer. He desires that we exercise care for our own person, which helps us relate to Him. If we dislike ourselves, we may feel unworthy of God’s love and refuse to approach Him as Father. But love teaches us to see ourselves the way the Lord does—as available vessels, each with unique gifts and talents. Then we can offer greater usefulness to the kingdom. Using us to the fullest extent of our God-given abilities is the Father’s goal, and if we have a righteous love for self, that will be our goal too.

Whoever you are and whatever your circumstances may be, I can tell you something about yourself. God has a special plan for you. But He cannot set you on the path to achieving His goals for your life until you recognize your worth and learn to love the person He created you to be.”

A computer shop’s sales pitch: ‘We remove Vista’

February 12, 2008


I recently ordered a laptop system with Vista. Within one month I have had to reinstall Vista and that didn’t work, so I finally had to set the system to the settings that it had when I ordered it from Dell. I pleaded with Dell to send me an XP disk, but since I purchased the system with Vista they would not send it to me. Where is this shop?

Yes We Can 

 A fellow deacon at my church sent me this video last week and I found it to be very inspirational.  I think you will find it inspirational also.  Please share your thoughts with the world about how this video makes you feel.

Today is Super Tuesday

February 6, 2008

Twenty four states are either holding primary elections or caucuses today in what is known as Super Tuesday.  I happen to live in Illinois which is one of the states that is holding a primary election today.  So I got up a little earlier today and went to go do my civic duty before going in to the office.  As usual there were the political faithful standing close to the Chicago Public Library, where I vote, ready to press into my hands a last minute cheat sheet of who to vote for, but I was alreay prepared.  I had my own cheat sheet.  The line in the library was not long and I was able to get through the process in about fifteen minutes.  Thankfully I had my own pen, because the black markers that you use to mark the ballot were not in the voting booth, but they were in the room.

 I encourage everyone who can vote to do so.  Too many people have fought and died to get the right for me to not take it seriously.  The polls in Illinois closed a little over an hour ago and the news outlets are predicting that Barack Obama has won the state for the Democrats and John McCain has won the state for the Republicans.   I’ve got too much work to do to watch the returns all night, but I will keep up with what is going on and I will vote again in the big election in November.  No matter what happens, it looks like there will be some major changes in the White House and in this country.  Lord, I pray that you give us and our leaders the wisdom to make wise decisions.  Amen.
