This Is Perfect for Today


A little boy wanted to meet God. He knew it was a long trip to where God lived, so he packed his suitcase with a bag of potato chips and a six-pack of root beer and started his journey.
When he had gone about three blocks, he met an old man. He was sitting in the park, just staring at some pigeons. The boy sat down next to him and opened his suitcase. He was about to take a drink from his root beer when he noticed that the old man looked hungry, so he offered him some chips. He gratefully accepted it and smiled at him.
His smile was so pretty that the boy wanted to see it again, so he offered him a root beer. Again, he smiled at him. The boy was delighted! They sat there all afternoon eating and smiling, but they never said a word.
As twilight approached, the boy realized how tired he was and he got up to leave; but before he had gone more than a few steps, he turned around, ran back to the old man, and gave him a hug. He gave him his biggest smile ever..
When the boy opened the door to his own house a short time later, his mother was surprised by the look of joy on his face.
She asked him, "What did you do today that made you so happy?" He replied, "I had lunch with God." But before his mother could respond, he added, "You know what? He's got the most beautiful smile I've ever seen!"
Meanwhile, the old man, also radiant with joy, returned to his home. His son was stunned by the look of peace on his face and he asked, "dad, what did you do today that made you so happy?"
He replied "I ate potato chips in the park with God." However, before his son responded, he added, "You know, he's much younger than I expected."
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. People come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime! Embrace all equally!
Have lunch with God.......bring chips.
Send this to people who have touched your life in a special way. Let them know how important they are. I did!!!!
God still sits on the throne. You may be going through a tough time right now but God is getting ready to bless you in a way that only He can. Keep the faith!
My instructions were to pick people that I wanted God to bless, and I picked you.
Here is the prayer: Father, I ask You to bless my friends, relatives and e-mail buddies reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of Your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment. Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy. Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace. Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings. In Jesus' precious name,
Amen.

Ladies Who Love Boys Who Are Bad

Come on ladies, we're gonna talk about that Sexy... Fine... Edgy... Slightly Dangerous "Bad Boy" that turns us on and gets our juices flowing--our conquering juices, that is! What is it about this fine specimen of manly creature that is sooooo attractive to us?  Sandra Bullock is a prime example of this.  She was attracted to the man, Jesse James, a wild biker man, covered with tattoos and oozing with primal sexiness!  His deceptive boylike voice only added to his allure.  He's a contradiction, an enigma, a perfect project for taming!  But it just may be that the lion is not tameable.  Sandra  has been devastated by that bad boy, but she HAD to know he was "bad to the bone" Is his name Jesse James or not? 




 So what is really up with this phenomenon of the Bad Boy? 




In a word--Excitement! Yes, that man is edgy and challenging and we ladies like challenges just as well as men.  We also have competitive natures, just not necessarily in the same areas.  We want to keep up with this beautiful Bad Boy--to contain and control and domesticate him!  But let's keep one thing in mind about these Bad Boys--they are unpredictably predictable!  We kinda know that they are gonna do what they do, but we don't always know when or how or with whom. 



Now, instead of accepting this about this beautiful creature called the BAD BOY, and just flowing with it like water for chocolate, we ladies allow our mothering natures, our setting things right, nurturing natures to kick in.  And when dealing with that Bad Boy, who has been rebelling against his momma since he was 10 years old, this mothering nature is just not gonna work.  Simple as that.  He's a rebel! That's what attracted you to him!  So you have to let a rebel be a rebel!  The ONE THING a rebel loves and thrives on, it is when a woman like you or me tries to CHANGE HIM from being a rebel!! That's when he can really put the pedal to the metal in his rebelliousness!  That's when he can really be bad! That's when he comes aliiive!  



Now ladies, if you want that rebellious, sexy, Bad to the bone Boy, you have to accept him for who and what he is.  Do Not, I repeat, Do NOT try to change him.  Anyway, it just doesn't make sense to want to change him into that thing that you're not attracted to anyway.  If he humored you and actually changed, you'd probably kick him to the curb, and pronto! 



So in closing, ladies, I want you to repeat after me:  "I have no power to change my bad boy, and I will accept my bad boy for who and what he is, whatever his vice".
