~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
In Who's Hands?
By Pastor Rick Sams
A yellow jersey in my hands is worth about $30. In Lance Armstrong's about $10 million in endorsements. A baseball bat in my hand is worth about $50. A bat in Manny Ramirez' hands is worth about $30 million. A basketball in my hands is worth about $20. In Michael Jordan's it's worth about $33 million. A walking stick in my hands can be used to scare snakes and keep me upright on a rugged trail. A walking stick in Moses' hands can part the Red Sea. A slingshot in my hands could hurt somebody, probably me more than anyone else, but a slingshot in the hands of the shepherd boy who became Israel's greatest king brought down an evil giant. Nails in my hands can build a birdhouse. Nails in Jesus' hands made the way of salvation and forgiveness of sins for the whole world: "For God So love the world he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life" (John 3:16 NIV Bible and the internet).
Problems in my hands usually get messier. Problems I put into the hands of Jesus always get worked on in ways that amaze me and bless me eventually: "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us" (Romans 8:28; Ephesians 3:20 NIV Bible).

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
A pastor delivered a sermon in 30 minutes one morning that was about half the usual length of his sermons.
He explained, "I regret to inform you that my dog, who is very fond of eating paper, ate that portion of my sermon which I was unable to deliver this morning."
After the service, a visitor from another church shook hands with the preacher as he was leaving, and said, "Sir, if that dog of yours has any pups, I sure would like to get one to give to my minister!"

China faces an acute lack of women.
So serious is the dearth of females that it is estimated that by 2020, 40 million men will be forced to remain bachelors.
Last month it was announced that female astronauts are to be recruited for China’s space program, in an effort to create positive female role models and reverse the traditional Chinese preference for boys over girls.
