Funny Friday Quote:  He was yelling!

A man was in the waiting room of the doctor’s office when he was startled by someone loudly yelling.  Listening closely, he heard, “Typhoid!  Tetanus!  Measles!”  The man immediately went up to the receptionist and asked her what was going on. 

“Oh, that,” she replied.  “It’s just the doctor.  He likes to call the shots around here.” [Author Unknown]

Funny Friday Quote:  The Pearly Gates

   Three aged men arrive at the Pearly Gates at the same time.  As part of their orientation to Heaven, St. Peter asks what kind of remarks they would most like to hear from their family and friends at their funerals.

   “I would like to hear them say I was a great doctor and a good family man,” said the first.

   “I would like to hear themm say I was a wonderful husband and that, during my career as a schoolteacher, I made a difference in many lives,” chimed in the second fellow.

Funny Friday Quote:  Jeff Rovin

   “The doctor decided to put his patient on a diet.   “I want you to eat regularly for two days,”  the physician directed.   “Then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for two more weeks.  The next time I see you, you should have lost at least five pounds.”

   When the man returned, he had lost twenty pounds.  “You did this just by following my instructions?”  the doctor asked.

   The fellow nodded.  “I’ll tell you, though, I thought I was going to drop dead that third day.”

   “From hunger?”

   “No, from skipping!”

Thank You for such an awesome day!  Today as I venture out into what Your day holds for me, I pray that You show me Your ways and lead me in Your truth.  Examine me Father that I may  walk in integrity.  Lord, I wish to only seek and serve You the rest of my days here on this earth.  I love You Father and I pray for a weekend of continued service and worship to You in the hopes that lives may be changed.  Father, those that don’t know You and don’t have a personal relationship with You, may You stir in them the love that You have so blessed me with that their only desire will be to seek You out.

In Jesus Name I pray,

Amen

Story of the day:  Your actions carry far more weight.

   “Major Osipovich, an air force pilot for the former USSR, planned to give a talk at his children’s school about peace.  He would need time off during the day to give his talk, so he volunteered for night duty.  That’s how Major Osipovich found himself patrolling the skies over the eastern regions of the Soviet Union on September 1, 1983–the night Korean Airlines Flight KE007, strayed into Soviet air space.

   Soon the Soviet pilot was caught in a series of blunders and misinformation.  In the end, Major Osipovich followed orders and shot down the unidentified aircraft.  The actions of an air force major preparing to talk about peace plunged 240 passengers to their deaths and sparked an international incident that pushed world powers to a stand-off.

   Our talk is important.  But our actions carry far more weight.”

Quote of the day:  Author Unknown

“Our actions speak louder than words.”

Bible verse of the day:  Psalm 143:10

“Teach me to do Your will, for you are my God; Your Spirit is good.  Lead me in the land of uprightness.”

Prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father,

The words that I speak as the story above has said,  are important, but carry little weight when it comes to my actions.  Father, teach me how to guard my heart, my tongue, and my mind to the things that are only pleasing to You.  May I speak when the need arises, and be quiet if I don’t need to talk.   Father, I wish to only do Your will and so I ask that You continue to teach me how to, because just as the Psalms say, “You are my God; Your Spirit is good”, and in You I put my trust.  I thank You for this day!

In Jesus Name I pray

Amen
