Things You Give Up For Marriage - 03/21/07 04:55 PM
My wife left me... And I don't understand. After the last child was born, she told me we had to cut back on expences- I had to give up drinking beer. I was not a big drinker, maybe a 12-pack on weekends. Anyway, I gave it up but I noticed the other day when she came home from grocery shopping, the reciept included $45 for makeup. I said "Wait a minute I've given up beer and you haven't given up anything!" She said, "I buy that makeup for you, so I can look pretty for you." I told her, "Heck, that's what the beer was for!" I don't think (7 comments)
Are You Old? - 03/21/07 04:49 PM
Just in case you weren't feeling too old today, this will certainly change things. The people who started university this year across the nation were born in 1985. They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up. Thier lifetime has always included AIDS. Bottle caps have always been screw off and plastic. The CD was introduced the year they were born. They have always had an answering machine, They have always had cable. They cannot fathom not having a remote control. Jay Leno has laways been on the tonight show. Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave. They never took a swim and thought about Jaws. They don't (1 comments)
Words To Live By... - 03/21/07 04:41 PM
It is easier to preach ten sermons than it is to live by one. When you get to wit's end, you'll find God lives there 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 Some minds are like concrete Thoroughly mixed up and permanently set. Peace starts with a smile. Forbidden fruits create many jams. God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called. He who angers you, controls you! (2 comments)
Pike County is located in the southeastern section of the state, in the coastal plain or "Wiregrass" area. It encompasses 672 square miles. A teacher's training college, Troy normal School, was established in 1887. Today it exists as the prestigious Troy University. Other towns in the county include Brundidge, Spring Hill and Henderson. The town of Troy is quickly growing but still has that down home feeling, there are still several beautiful lots to choose from, and when I say lots I do not mean ¼ acre. Imagine one, five or even 100 acres. Some people consider it peace and quite, I (0 comments)

GOD KNOWS THE SCORE - 03/19/07 08:33 PM
GOD KNOWS THE SCORE by Helen Steiner Rice Have you ever been caught in a web you didn't weave, Involved in conditions that are hard to believe? Have you felt you must speak and explain or deny A story that's groundless or a small, whispered lie? Have you ever heard rumors you would like to refute Or some telltale gossip you would like to dispute? Well, don't be upset for God knows the score And with God as your judge you need worry no more, For men may misjudge you but God's verdict is fair For He looks deep inside and He is clearly aware Of every small detail in your pattern of (0 comments)
ATTITUDE - 03/19/07 07:59 AM
There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, And noticed she had only three hairs on her head. "Well" she said, " I think I'll braid my hair today." So she did and she had a wonderful day. The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw she had only two hairs on her head. "H-M-M," she said, I think I'll part my hair down the middle today." So She did and she had a grand day. The next morning she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her (9 comments)

FOUR THINGS TO AVOID WHEN PURCHASING A HOME There are four major things to avoid doing before applying for a loan and during the loan process itself. Any one of these four things can greatly impact your ability to qualify for a mortgage loan so it is critical to avoid doing any of the following until AFTER your loan has closed escrow:
DO NOT CHANGE JOBSChanging jobs before or during the loan process can create a problem in qualifying you for a loan, particularly if that job is in a different line of work or at a lower rate of pay. During the (2 comments)
One of the biggest problems facing potential homebuyers today is coming up with enough money for the down payment and closing costs. The amount you have available can greatly limit or increase your purchasing power. Rather than saving all the money yourself, there are options that may help. Here are some ways to accumulate the necessary funds that are acceptable to most lenders. Have your Parents Give you the Money as a GiftDocumentation will be required to prove that the money is actually a gift and not a loan. Any taxpayer is permitted to give up to $10,000 (2 comments)
Thoughts of inspiration - 03/13/07 11:26 PM
Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results.
The Bible, 1 John 3:18 NRSV: Bible QuotesLet us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action.
The kingdom of Heaven is within you...

Troubles are often the tools by which God fashions us for better things.
