May I Always………

May I always show God’s grace to other’s. When I talk with sinners, may Jesus be reflected in me.

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3: 23

May I always share my story with others about how God saved me, forgave me, delivered me, and

set me free from my abortion (as an unsaved teenager). May I never be ashamed to tell others about

my scars. It’s who I am.

May I never teach others about a legalistic view of God. May I never be proud or boastful.

I believe that God created us all equal. No one person is better than another. God says we were

all created equal.

We all have a past. I believe that God can change us, that He can use us for His Glory. I just have to

let Him. I have to surrender to Him daily, sometimes hourly. May I never forget that, so he can work

in my life.

My prayer is that I convey this message to my children and my grandchildren.

Blessings,
Jeanie

Wisdom From A Friend

This is a hilarious email that I received from a friend.

Wisdom From A Friend:

As we approach the beginning of another month — I want to thank all of you
for your educational emails over the past year. I am totally screwed up now
and have little chance of recovery. I no longer open a bathroom door without
using a paper towel, or have the waitress put lemon slices in my ice water
without worrying about the bacteria on the lemon peel.

I cannot use the remote in a hotel room because I don’t know what the last
person was doing while flipping through the adult movie channels.

I can’t sit down on the hotel bedspread because I can only imagine what has
happened on it since it was last washed…hmmmm.

Eating a little snack sends me on a guilt trip because I can only imagine
how many gallons of trans fats I have consumed over the years.

I can’t touch any woman’s purse for fear she has placed it on the floor of a
public bathroom.

I MUST ALSO SEND MY SPECIAL THANKS to whoever sent me the one about rat crap
in the glue on envelopes because I now have to use a wet sponge with every
envelope that needs sealing.

ALSO, now I have to scrub the top of every can I open for the same reason.

I no longer have any savings because I gave it to a sick girl (Penny Brown)
who is about to die for the 1,387,258th time.

I no longer have any money, but that will change once I receive the $15,000
that Bill Gates/Microsoft and AOL are sending me for participating in their
special e-mail program.

I no longer worry about my soul because I have 363,214 angels looking out
for me, and St. Theresa’s Novena has granted my every wish.

I can’t have a drink in a bar because I’ll wake up in a bathtub full of ice
with my kidneys gone.

I can’t eat at KFC because their chickens are actually horrible mutant
freaks with no eyes, feet or feathers.

I can’t use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a water
buffalo on a hot day.

THANKS TO ALL OF YOU I have learned that my prayers only get answered if I
forward an e-mail to seven of my friends and make a wish within five
minutes.

BECAUSE OF YOUR CONCERN, I no longer drink Coca Cola because it can remove
toilet stains.

I no longer buy gas without taking someone along to watch the car so a
serial killer doesn’t crawl in my back seat when I’m filling up.

I no longer drink Pepsi or Fanta since the people who make these products
are atheists who refuse to put ‘Under God’ on their cans.

I no longer use Cling Wrap in the microwave because it causes seven
different types of cancer.

THANKS TO YOU I can’t use anyone’s toilet but mine because a big black snake
could be lurking under the seat and cause me instant death when it bites my
butt.

AND THANKS TO YOUR GREAT ADVICE I can’t ever pick up a Penny dropped in the
parking lot because it probably was placed there by a $ex molester waiting
to grab me as I bend over.

I no longer drive my car because buying gas from some companies supports Al
Qaeda, and buying gas from all the others supports South American dictators.

I can’t do any gardening because I’m afraid I’ll get bitten by the Violin
Spider and my hand will fall off.

If you don’t send this e-mail to at least” 144,000 people in the next 70
minutes”, a large dove with diarrhea will land on your head at 5:00 p.m.
tomorrow afternoon, and the fleas from 120 camels will infest your back,
causing you to grow a hairy hump. I know this will occur because it actually
happened to a friend of my next door neighbor’s ex-mother-in-law’s second
husband’s cousin’s best friend’s beautician . . .

If you do not forward this bad luck will follow you for the rest of your
life ;-)

A German scientist from Argentina, after a lengthy study, has discovered
that people with insufficient brain activity read their e-mail with their
hand on the mouse.

Don’t bother taking it off now, it’s too late.

PS: I now keep my toothbrush in the living room, because I was told by
e-mail that water splashes over 6 ft. out of the toilet.

Reasons Why People Come Into Your Life

When someone is in your life for a REASON….It is usually to meet a need you have expressed. The have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are! They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part, or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. they prayer you sent up has been answered. And now it is time to move on.

Then people come into your life for a SEASON. Because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. they bring you an experience of peace, or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons: things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is perceptive.
