WE THINK THIS IS A GREAT IDEA. WE’LL START WRITING IT ON THE FRONT OF OUR ENVELOPES, TOO! ! Including Bills
You may have heard in the news that a couple of Post Offices in Texashave been forced to take down small posters that say
‘IN GOD WETRUST‘ The law,they say, is being violated.
Anyway, we heard proposed on a radio station show, that we should all write ‘IN GODWE TRUST’
on the back of all our mail. After all, that’s our National Motto, and it’s on all the money we use to buy those stamps. We think it’s a wonderful idea.
We must take back our nation from all the people who think that anything that offends them should be removed.
If you like this idea, please pass it on and DO IT. The idea of writing or stamping
‘IN GOD WE TRUST‘ on our envelopes sounds good to us . WE’RE HAVING A STAMP MADE TOO! Heck,lets use it as our signature on e-mails too!
It’s been reported that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore, we have a very hard time understanding why there’s such a mess about having ‘In God We Trust!’ on our money and having God in the pledge of Allegiance.
Could it be that WE just need to take action and tell the 14% to ‘sit down and shut up’?
If you agree, pass this on, if not, delete!!! BUT REMEMBER IF YOU DELETE THIS,thats 1 reason why this world is in the mess we’re in now.WE SIT BACK & LET IT HAPPEN!!
And so he got his wife to promise him, with all of her heart, that when he died, she would put all of the money into the casket with him.
Well, he died. He was stretched out in the casket, his wife was sitting there – dressed in black, and her friend was sitting next to her. When they finished the ceremony, and just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said,
The following are some kingdom principles of choice and how they work in God’s kingdom. What is choice? What does God ask you to choose? How can you apply God’s principles to your choices and your will?.
The Israelites chose God and promised to obey Him, (Joshua 24:15, 16) but they found that promise hard to live up to.” But if you don’t want to worship the LORD, then choose right now! Will you worship the same idols your ancestors did? Or since you’re living on land that once belonged to the Amorites, maybe you’ll worship their gods. I won’t. My family and I are going to worship and obey the LORD! 16The people answered”
We could never worship other gods or stop worshiping the LORD.
– Joshua 24:15, 16
1“The LORD’S angel went from Gilgal to Bochim and gave the Israelites this message from the LORD: ‘I promised your ancestors that I would give this land to their families, and I brought your people here from Egypt. We made an agreement that I promised never to break, 2and you promised not to make any peace treaties with the other nations that live in the land. Besides that, you agreed to tear down the altars where they sacrifice to their idols. But you didn’t keep your promise.
3And so, I’ll stop helping you defeat your enemies. Instead, they will be there to trap you into worshiping their idols.'”
– Judges 2:1-3
— Matthew 13:31, 32
– Matthew 13:24-30
— 2 Corinthians 9:6
– James 1:12
Why Go To Church?
A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday. “I’ve gone for 30 years now,” he wrote, “and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can’t remember a single one of them. So, I think I’m wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all.”‘
This started a real controversy in the ‘Letters to the Editor’ column, much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:
“I’ve been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this. They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!”
Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible!
Thank God for our physical AND our spiritual nourishment!
If we could read minds,we can tell what our leaders are thinking.
Question. Can facial expression tells us anything?
This will give you chills…. No matter how religious you may or may

Remember this story and send it to a friend. Yes, I do Love Jesus.
He is my source of existence and Savior.
He keeps me functioning each and everyday.

Christ who strengthens me.”
This is the simplest test.

has done for you.
Pass this to ten people –and the person who sent it to you !!!!!!!!!!!

YOU ARE SO BLESSED
clipped from: www.path-2-online-success.com Psalm 133)Isaiah 26)Isaiah 32)
There was a little boy visiting his grandparents on their farm. He was given a slingshot to play with out in the woods. He practiced in the woods; but he could never hit the target. Getting a little discouraged, he headed back for dinner. As he was walking back he saw Grandma’s pet duck. Just out of impulse, he let the slingshot fly, hit the duck square in the head and killed it. He was shocked and grieved!
In a panic, he hid the dead duck in the wood pile; only to see his sister watching! Sally had seen it all, but she said nothing.
After lunch the next day Grandma said, ‘Sally, let’s wash the dishes’ But Sally said, ‘Grandma, Johnny told me he wanted to help in the kitchen.’ Then she whispered to him, ‘Remember the duck?’ So Johnny did the dishes.
Later that day, Grandpa asked if the children wanted to go fishing and Grandma said, ‘I’m sorry but I need Sally to help make supper.’ Sally just smiled and said, ‘Well that’s all right because Johnny told me he wanted to help’ She whispered again, ‘Remember the duck?’ So Sally went fishing and Johnny stayed to help
After several days of Johnny doing both his chores and Sally’s; he finally couldn’t stand it any longer. He came to Grandma and confessed that he had killed the duck.
Grandma knelt down, gave him a hug and said, ‘Sweetheart, I know. You see, I was standing at the window and I saw the whole thing, but because I love you, I forgave you. I was just wondering how long you would let Sally make a slave of you.’
Thought for the day and every day thereafter?
Whatever is in your past, whatever you have done… and the devil keeps throwing it up in your face (lying, cheating, debt, fear, bad habits, hatred, anger, bitterness, etc.)…whatever it is…You need to know that God was standing at the window and He saw the wholething. He has seenyour whole life. He wants you to know that He loves you and that youare forgiven.
He’s just wondering how long you will let the devil make a slave of you. The great thing about God is that when you ask forforgiveness; He not only forgives you, but He forgets. It is by God’s grace and mercy that we are saved.
When Jesus died on the cross; he was thinking of you!
Some years ago, on a hot summer day in south Florida, a little boy decided to go for a swim in the old swimming hole that was behind his house. In a hurry to dive into the cool water, he ran out the back door, leaving behind shoes, socks, and shirt as he went.
He flew into the water, not realizing that as he swam toward the middle of the lake, an alligator was swimming toward the shore. In the house, his mother was looking out the window. She saw the two as they got closer and closer together. In utter fear, she ran toward the water, yelling to her son as loudly as she could. Hearing her voice, the little boy became alarmed, and made a U-turn to swim to his mother. It was too late. Just as he reached her, the alligator reached him. From the dock, the mother grabbed her little boy by the arms, just as the alligator snatched his legs. That began a very incredible tug-of-war between the two. The alligator was much stronger than the mother, but the mother was much too passionate to let go.
A farmer happened to drive by, heard her screams, raced from his truck, took aim, and shot the alligator. Remarkably, after weeks and weeks in the hospital, the little boy Survived. His legs were extremely scarred by the vicious attack of the animal. On his arms, there were deep scratches where his mother’s fingernails dug into his flesh; in her effort to hang on to the son she loved. The newspaper reporter, who interviewed the boy after the trauma, asked the boy if he would show him his scars.
The boy lifted his pant legs. Then, with obvious pride, he said to the reporter, “But look at my arms. I have great scars on my arms, too. I have them because my Mom wouldn’t let go.” You and I can identify with that little boy.
We have scars, too. No, not from an alligator, but the scars of a painful past. Some of those scars are unsightly, and have caused us deep regret. But, some wounds, my friend, are because God has refused to let go. In the midst of your struggle, He’s been right there, holding on to you.
The Scripture teaches that God loves you. You are a child of God. He wants to protect you, and provide for you in every way. But, sometimes, we foolishly wade into dangerous situations, not knowing what lies ahead. The swimming hole of life is filled with peril and we forget that the enemy is waiting to attack. That is when the tug-of-war begins. If you have the scars of His love on your arms, be very, very grateful. He will not ever let you go.
Please pass this on to those you love. God has blessed you, so that you can be a blessing to others. You just never know where a person is in his/her life, and what they are going through.
Never judge other persons scars, because you don’t know how they got them.
Also, it is so important that we are not too selfish to receive the blessings of these messages without forwarding them to someone else.
Right now, someone needs to know that God loves them, and you love them too enough to not let them go!!!
God bless you!
DID YOU KNOW?
Easter is early this year. Easter is always the 1st Sunday after the 1st
full moon after the Spring Equinox (which is March 20). This dating of
Easter is based on the lunar calendar that Hebrew people used to identify
Passover, which is why it moves around on our Roman calendar.
Based on the above information, Easter actually can be one day earlier
(March 22) that is rare. Here’s the interesting information. This year is
the earliest Easter any of us will ever see the rest of our lives! And
only the most elderly of our population have ever seen it this early (95 years
old or above).
And none of us have ever, or will ever, see it a day earlier!
Here’s the facts:
1) The next time Easter will be this early (March 23) will be the year
2228 (220 years from now). The last time it was this early was 1913 (so
if you’re 95 or older, you are the only ones that were around for that!).
2) The next time it will be a day earlier, March 22, will be in the year
2285 (277 years from now). The last time it was on March 22 was 1818. So,
no one alive today has or will ever see it any earlier than this year!

The Ksh 50 and Ksh 1000
A well-worn One Thousand Kenya Shilling note and a
similarly distressed Fifty Kenya Shilling note arrived at the
Central Bank of Kenya to be retired. As they moved along the conveyor belt
to be burnt, they struck up a conversation. The One Thousand Kenya
Shilling note reminisced about its travels all over the country.
“I’ve had a pretty good life,” the One Thousand
Kenya Shilling note proclaimed. “Why, I’ve been to Nairobi,
Mombasa Nakuru and Kisumu, the finest places and restaurants
in Nairobi’s Westland, Mombasa, and Nakuru. I have been
to performances at Carnivore and Pavement, hottest nite
clubs all over the country and even a weekend at White
Sands Beach Hotel and Masai Mara.”
“Wow!” said the Fifty Kenya Shillings. “You’ve
really had an exciting life!”
“So tell me,” says the One Thousand Kenya Shilling
note, “where have you been throughout your lifetime?”
The Fifty Kenya Shillings replies, “Oh, I’ve been
to the Apostolic & Methodist Church, the Redeemed Christian
Church, the Catholic Church, the Deeper Life Bible Church,
the Baptist Church, the Anglican Church, the Pentecostal,
the CCC, the Lutheran Church ….” At this point the One
Thousand Kenya Shilling note interrupts, “What’s a church?”
PLEASE PEOPLE, CAN WE HELP THE ONE THOUSAND KENYA
SHILLING NOTE ALSO GO TO CHURCH IN 2008 it is God’s will
and a work of grace, do not boast about it lest you be like
the 1000 and the 50, both were on their way to the fire.

friend. Whatever you are going through, don't quit. Stay on course!
stop quacking like ducks and start soaring like eagles
Years ago, my friend, Harvey Mackay, told me a wonderful story about a cab
driver that proved this point. He was waiting in line for a ride at the
airport. When a cab pulled up, the first thing Harvey noticed was that the
taxi was polished to a bright shine. Smartly dressed in a white shirt,
black tie, and freshly pressed black slacks, the cab driver jumped out and
rounded the car to open the back passenger door for Harvey . He handed my
friend a laminated card and said: “I’m Wally, your driver. While I’m
loading your bags in the trunk I’d like you to read my mission statement.”
Taken aback, Harvey read the card. It said: Wally’s Mission Statement: To
get my customers to their destination in the quickest, safest and cheapest
way possible in a friendly environment.
This blew Harvey away. Especially when he noticed that the inside of the
cab matched the outside. Spotlessly clean! As he slid behind the wheel,
Wally said, “Would you like a cup of coffee? I have a thermos of regular
and one of decaf.” My friend said jokingly, “No, I’d prefer a soft drink.”
Wally smiled and said, “No problem. I have a cooler up front with regular
and Diet Coke, water and orange juice.” Almost stuttering, Harvey said,
“I’ll take a Diet Coke.” Handing him his drink, Wally said, “If you’d like
something to read, I have The Wall Street Journal, Time, Sports Illustrated
and USA Today.”
As they were pulling away, Wally handed my friend another laminated card.
“These are the stations I get and the music they play, if you’d like to
listen to the radio.” And as if that weren’t enough, Wally told Harvey that
he had the air conditioning on and asked if the temperature was comfortable
for him. Then he advised Harvey of the best route to his destination for
that time of day. He also let him know that he’d be happy to chat and tell
him about some of the sights or, if Harvey preferred, to leave him with his
“Tell me, Wally,” my amazed friend asked the driver, “have you always
served customers like this?” Wally smiled into the rearview mirror. “No,
not always. In fact, it’s only been in the last two years. My first five
years driving, I spent most of my time complaining like all the rest of the
cabbies do. Then I heard the personal growth guru, Wayne Dyer, on the radio
one day. He had just written a book called You’ll See It When You Believe
It. Dyer said that if you get up in the morning expecting to have a bad
day, you’ll rarely disappoint yourself. He said, `Stop complaining!
Differentiate yourself from your competition. Don’t be a duck. Be an eagle.
Ducks quack and complain. Eagles soar above the crowd.'”
“That hit me right between the eyes,” said Wally. “Dyer was really talking
about me. I was always quacking and complaining, so I decided to change my
attitude and become an eagle. I looked around at the other cabs and their
drivers. The cabs were dirty, the drivers were unfriendly, and the
customers were unhappy. So I decided to make some changes. I put in a few
at a time. When my customers responded well, I did more.”
“I take it that has paid off for you,” Harvey said. “It sure has,” Wally
replied. “My first year as an eagle, I doubled my income from the previous
year. This year I’ll probably quadruple it. You were lucky to get me today.
I don’t sit at cabstands anymore. My customers call me for appointments on
my cell phone or leave a message on my answering machine. If I can’t pick
them up myself, I get a reliable cabbie friend to do it and I take a piece
of the action.” Wally was phenomenal. He was running a limo service out of
a Yellow Cab.
I’ve probably told that story to more than fifty cab drivers over the
years, and only two took the idea and ran with it. Whenever I go to their
cities, I give them a call. The rest of the drivers quacked like ducks and
told me all the reasons they couldn’t do any of what I was suggesting.
Johnny the Bagger and Wally the Cab Driver made a different choice. They
decided to stop quacking like ducks and start soaring like eagles.
How about you?
