My love for God -- and my gifts to God -- are to be offered to
Him on the altar of my neighbor's need. We are encouraged by the

well-being and continue to offer our prayers up for those of you who have
requested us to join you in your prayerful petitions to God. Please continue

A Little Humor Goes A Long Way!
For those of you who like a warm chuckle, and who doesn't, here are
a few thoughts to make you smile:
The following are comments actually made by airline flight attendants
-- to amuse bored passengers who thought they'd heard it all. It was sent to
me by a friend -- thanks, Sue, for sharing with us. :)
Pilot: Folks, we have reached our cruising altitude now, so I am going to
switch the seat belt sign off. Feel free to move about as you wish, but
please stay inside the plane till we land ... it's a bit cold outside, and
if you walk on the wings, it affects the flight pattern.
And after landing: Thank you for flying XYZ Business Express. We hope
you enjoyed giving us the business as much as we enjoyed taking you for a
An actual joke I heard on an airline recently, just after a very
hard landing in Salt Lake City -- one of the most bone jarring I've ever
experienced. The flight attendant came on the intercom and said, "That was
quite a bump and I know what ya'll are thinking. I'm here to tell you it
wasn't the airline's fault, it wasn't the pilot's fault, it wasn't the
flight attendant's fault. It was the asphalt!"
Overheard on another airline: After an extremely hard landing, the
flight attendant came on the PA and announced, "Ladies and Gentlemen,
welcome to Amarillo. Please remain in your seats with your seatbelts
fastened while the Captain taxis what's left of our airplane to the gate."
Another flight attendant's comment on a less than perfect landing:
"We ask you to please remain seated as Captain Kangaroo bounces us to the
An airline pilot wrote that on a particular flight he had hammered
his ship into the runway pretty hard. The airline had a policy which
required the first officer to stand at the door while the passengers exited,
give a smile and a "Thanks for flying XX Airlines." He said that in light
of his bad landing, he had a hard time looking the passengers in the eye,
thinking that someone would have a smart comment. Finally, everyone had
gotten off except for one little old lady walking with a cane. She asked,
"Sonny, mind if I ask you one question?" "Why, no ma'm," said the pilot.
"What is it?" The little old lady asked, "Did we land or were we shot down?"
Jack Benny said, "Age is strictly a case of mind over matter. If you
don't mind, it doesn't matter."
Birthdays are good for you, says Dick Hooper. Studies have shown
that people who have the most live the longest.
Some people succeed because they are destined to, but most people
succeed because they are determined to.
Temper is what gets most of us into trouble. Pride is what keeps
Parents who are afraid to put foot down, usually have children who
step on their toes. -- Chinese proverb
Organized crime in America takes in over forty billion dollars a
year and spends very little on office supplies. -- Woody Allen
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they
will surprise you with their ingenuity. -- General George S. Patton

Concludes Major Depression in Children is Real, Diagnosable and Treatable,
Different Kinds of Depression, Creativity and Depessives, Cost of
Depression to Society, Adolescent Suicide, Measuring Self-Esteem.
We used to think children couldn't be depressed -- that they
didn't think or feel deeply enough to experience the same depression that
adults suffer. New research is disputing this notion. Read more about
depression that does afflict children and teens.
Making Your Christian Marriage More Robust
There's lots of material here to help you
build or re-invent your marriage relationship. Discussion centers on

have found the articles and information very helpful. Contents: Jesus

Rules, Peer Marriages, 5 Signals of a Marriage in Trouble.
I Have Called You By Name
This booklet of Christian devotionals is now available and
ready to ship! It is a collection of daily devotions, much like the
devotional that is quoted from the April issue of the newsletter. Each
devotional is centered around a Bible text with accompanying prayer. If
you're in a hurry but know you need to take a few moments to connect with
God out the door, you'll want a copy of this collection of devotions.
Tell Me...Tell Me...Tell Me...This
is a collection of four Christian essays about Hope, Forgiveness,
Prayer and Angels. Lots of correlated Bible verses to deepen your study
Martin Asks: Why Do Families Die?
As a mental health counselor, I am disturbed by
the effect divorce has on children. In my work with children, I have asked
them what they experienced as a result of their parents' divorce and
present their comments in a story about a boy named Martin who likens
divorce to losing the dinosaurs. The first part of the booklet is written
at fourth grade level and is easy for children to understand. The second
part is directed toward parents and includes many things they should think
about before running off to see a lawyer for a divorce.
Please note: If you have questions that you would like to see

Thank you for visiting my home page! I hope that you will become a
regular visitor to this page and plan to refresh and update excerpts from
my newsletter -- probably after I get home from church on Sunday, so there
will always be something new on a regular basis.
