~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

God doesn’t always still the storm, but he can calm the sailor.

Dr. S. D. Gordon tells of an old Christian woman whose age began to tell on her memory. She had once known much of the Bible by heart. Eventually only one precious bit stayed with her: “I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.” By and by part of that slipped its hold, and she would quietly repeat, “That which I have committed unto him.”

At last as she hovered on the borderland between time and eternity, her loved ones noticed her lips moving. They bent down to see whether she needed anything. She was repeating over and over again to herself the one word of the text: “Him—him—him.” She had lost the whole Bible except one word. But she had the whole Bible in that one word.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

Jeremy and Michael, our five-year-old twin boys, had each claimed one parent for his own and were very possessive of the one they favored.

This became evident at a family gathering when a relative asked Jeremy where his parents were.

"Well, that's my dad over there," he said, gesturing towards me. "And that's Michael's mom standing beside him."

Our parish priest suddenly became ill and asked his twin brother, also a priest, to fill in for him and conduct a funeral Mass scheduled for that day. His brother, of course, agreed.

It was not until the brother was accompanying the casket down the aisle, however, that he realized that he had neglected to ask the gender of the deceased. This was information that he would need for his remarks during the service.

Thinking quickly, as he approached the first pew where the deceased's relatives were seated, he nodded toward the casket and whispered to one woman, "Brother or sister?"

"Cousin," she replied.

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Google Search Page

I like to use Google for my internet searches. I prefer however to use Google’s Advanced Search page. It provides a variety of options to search.

Google Advanced Search Page

I have found it handy to have this Search Page as my Home Page in Internet Explorer. Therefore every time I open Internet Explorer (except when I click on a link in my e-mail) it opens to the Google Advanced Search Page.

If you use Internet Explorer 7 (earlier versions should work about the same) and would like to make Google Advanced Search Page your Home Page you can do so as follows:

Click on the Google Advanced Search Page link shown above. Internet Explorer will open and display the Google Advanced Search Page.

Click on the Tools drop down menu on the upper left side of the Internet Explorer window. Then click on the Internet Options menu item. A new smaller window will open.

The Internet Options window will be showing the contents of a index tab titled, General. The upper section of this tab is titled Hope Page. You will see an area showing the internet address of the webpage you have been using as your Home Page. You do not need to do anything with this because Internet Explorer is displaying the webpage you now plan to use. Click on the button just below this area titled, Use Current. The Google Advanced Search Page internet address will now show in the area above this Use Current button. Click the OK button at the bottom of this Internet Options window.

Your mission is now accomplished. You can use this procedure to make any page you are viewing your Home Page.
