~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
ONE MOTHERS' PRAYER
By Becky Hutzel, Copyright (c) 2001
Dear Father in Heaven I come humbly to You
Seeking Your wisdom in all that I do
The call that You made for my life on this Earth
As a mother of four gives both sorrow and mirth
And daily I wonder deep in my soul
What lies ahead as each life unfolds
To raise them alone would be foolish indeed
So daily I come to give You my need
For the weakness I feel in the face of this task
Reminds me each day for Your guidance to ask
Help me, O God instill in each child
The teachings of Jesus who was gentle and mild
Let me live an example that's pure and sweet
With a steady faith for each trial I meet
Let actions and words together be true
As the standards I live will represent You
Dear Father I cry to me draw near
Your guidance and strength will make the way clear
What comfort to know I need never dread
The things of tomorrow for You've traveled ahead
With the promise of help to lighten my load
Giving rest for the way and peace fore the road
Then with wings as an eagle I will soar above
All the weight of these worries and rest in Your love.

A note from the author:
Following are some scripture verses and a short little prayer, all in regards to mothers and
raising our children.
1 Thess. 5:17 - Pray without ceasing.
Eph. 6:10 - Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.
Phil. 4:19 - And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
May our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal comfort and good hope by grace, comfort and strengthen your hearts in every good work and word. May He direct your hearts into the love of God and the steadfastness of Christ. and may He in His mercy continually grant you peace along with wisdom in every circumstance.
Happy Mothers Day, Becky Hutzel firstname.lastname@example.org
~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
ENGLISH IS A CRAZY LANGUAGE!
Part 1 of 2 [May 11, 21]
There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat.
We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.
And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices?
Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend, that you comb through annals of history but not a single annal? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?
If teachers taught, why didn't preacher praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? If you wrote a letter, perhaps you bote your tongue?
Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane. In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell? Park on driveways and drive on parkways?

"If you move, you'll end up like us: surrounded by hundreds of cardboard boxes packed by strangers... you will not be able to find ANYTHING. For example, I'm pretty sure that, before we moved, we had a seven-month-old daughter." - Dave Barry

WHAT ARE DRIVERS?
and HOW CAN YOU GET THEM?
Drivers (in the world of computers) are mini-programs (instructions) that tell your computer how to use its hardware. Each hardware device has a driver. Some, like drivers for a keyboard or mouse, are built into the computer itself. Others, like video card drivers or modem drivers, need to be installed when you get the new hardware device. Without the proper driver, your hardware won't work correctly.
Driver software normally comes with your computer hardware. However you may misplace them or want to see if there is an updated driver available. Where do you find these drivers? The manufacture's website is a good start, but WinDrivers.com may be just valuable. They have tons of drivers for tons of hardware. WinDrivers.com http://www.windrivers.com/company.htm
