    Subject: Fwd: Who to Marry

    This has been around before but it made me laugh today and I hope it does the
    same for you.  BA

     
    HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY?
    (written by kids)
     

    Image001

     
     
     
     
    -You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming.
    — Alan, age 10

     -No person really decides before they grow up who they're going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with.
    — Kristen, age 10

    2. WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED? 
    Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then..
    — Camille, age 10

    3. HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?
    You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.
    — Derrick, age 8 

    4. WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON?
    Both don't want any more kids.
    — Lori, age 8

    5. WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE?
    -Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.
    –Lynnette, age 8 (isn't she a treasure)

    -On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.
    — Martin, age 10

    6. WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE? 
    -When they're rich.
    — Pam, age 7 ( Love her )

    -The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that.
    — Curt, age 7

    -The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do.
    — Howard, age 8

    7. IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED? 
    It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them.
    — Anita, age 9 (bless you child )

    8. HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN'T GET MARRIED?
    There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't there?
    — Kelvin, age 8

    And the #1 Favorite is …….

    9. HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK?
    Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a dump truck.
    — Ricky, age 10

    The Cross in our bodies 

    ———- Forwarded message ———-
    From: Ralph & BA 
    Date: 25 June 2012 08:20
    Subject: Fwd: The Cross in our bodies

     
    I thought this was interesting!
     
    Subject: FW: The Cross in our bodies
     

     

    Please read to the very end.
     
    The Cross in Our Bodies
     
    This is a pretty neat story and an interesting thing that few of us know. It's brief, so please read. (FROM A DOCTOR) 

    A couple of days ago I was running (I use that term very loosely) on my treadmill, watching a DVD sermon by Louie Giglio… And I was BLOWN AWAY! I want to share what I learned…. 

    He (Louie) was talking about how inconceivably BIG our God is… How He spoke the universe into being… How He breathes stars out of His mouth that are huge raging balls of fire… Etc. Etc. Then He went on to speak of how this star-breathing, universe creating God ALSO knitted our human bodies together with amazing detail and wonder. At this point I am LOVING it (fascinating from a medical standpoint, you know.) .. And I was remembering how I was constantly amazed during medical school as I learned more and more about God's handiwork. I remember so many times thinking..'How can ANYONE deny that a Creator did all of this???'


    Louie went on to talk about how we can trust that the God who created all this, also has the power to hold it all together when things seem to be falling apart…how our loving Creator is also our sustainer.
     

    And then I lost my breath. And it wasn't because I was running my treadmill, either!!!
     

    It was because he started talking about laminin.
     I knew about laminin….

    Here is how Wikipedia describes them:

    'Laminins are a family of proteins that are an integral part of

    the structural scaffolding of basement membranes in almost every animal tissue' You see…. Laminins are what hold us together… LITERALLY. They are cell adhesion molecules. They are what holds one cell of our bodies to the next cell. Without them, we would literally fall apart. And I knew all this already. But what I didn't know is what they LOOKED LIKE.. 

    But now I do. And I have thought about it a thousand times since (already)….Here is what the structure of laminin looks like… AND THIS IS NOT a 'Christian portrayal' of it…. If you look up laminin in any scientific/medical piece of literature, this is what you will see….

    1unknownname

    Now tell me that our God is not the coolest!!! Amazing. The glue that holds us together…. ALL of us….. Is in the shape of the cross. Immediately Colossians 1:15-17 comes to mind. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. All things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him All things HOLD TOGETHER.' Colossians 1:15-17 
    Call me crazy. I just think that is very, very, very cool. Thousands of years before the world knew anything about laminin, Paul penned those words. And now we see that from a very LITERAL standpoint, we are held together… One cell to another…. By the cross. 

    You would never in a quadrillion years convince me that is anything other than the mark of a Creator who knew EXACTLY what laminin 'glue' would look like long before Adam breathed his first breath!! 

    What I found when I googled laminin !!!!!!!!!!! 

    The cross is supposed to be swinging when you receive this. I hope it still is. This is cool – had to pass it on. I think we could all use a miracle. I know I certainly can!

    Murmuration?

    Subject: Murmuration?

     
    A wonderful “murmuration”!
    Another mystery of nature: 
    No one knows why they do it. Yet each fall, thousands of starlings dance in the twilight above England and Scotland. The birds gather in shape-shifting flocks called murmurations, having migrated in the millions from Russia and Scandinavia to escape winter’s frigid bite. Scientists aren’t sure how they do it, either. The starlings' murmurations are manifestations of swarm intelligence, which in different contexts is practiced by schools of fish, swarms of bees and colonies of ants.

    As far as I am aware, even complex algorithmic models haven’t yet explained the starlings’ aerobatics, which rely on the tiny birds' quicksilver reaction time of under 100 milliseconds to avoid aerial collisions­and predators­in the giant flock.

     
    Two young ladies were out for a late afternoon canoe ride and fortunately one of them remembered to bring her video camera. What they saw was a wonderful murmuration display, caught in the short video – URL is below.Watch the variation of color and intensity of the patterns that the birds make in proximity to one other. And take a look at the girl in the bow of the canoe watching the aerial display.

    Dogs know …. 

    ———- Forwarded message ———-
    From: Ralph & BA 
    Date: 21 June 2012 22:58
    Subject: Fwd: Dogs know ….

    Subject:  Dogs know ….This touched my heart.

     

    This really is a great story! 

    <img src="http://mail.verizon.com/webmail/cid:1.4033078399@web180406.mail.gq1.yahoo.com” height=”205″ alt=”image001.jpg@01CBF519.CD06E600” width=”205″ />

    Lucky Dog…. 

    Anyone who has pets will really like this. You'll like it even if you don't and you may even decide you need one! 

    Mary and her husband Jim had a dog named 'Lucky.' Lucky was a real character. 

    Whenever Mary and Jim had company come for a weekend visit they would warn their friends to not leave their luggage open because Lucky would help himself to whatever struck his fancy. Inevitably, someone would forget and something would come up missing.


    Mary or Jim would go to Lucky's toy box in the basement and there the treasure would be, amid all of Lucky's other favorite toys. Lucky always stashed his finds in his toy box and he was very particular that his toys stay in the box.

    It happened that Mary found out she had breast cancer. Something told her she was going to die of this disease……in fact; she was just sure it was fatal.

    She scheduled the double mastectomy, fear riding her shoulders. The night before she was to go to the hospital she cuddled with Lucky. A thought struck her….what would happen to Lucky? Although the three-year-old dog liked Jim, he was Mary's dog through and through.

    If I die, Lucky will be abandoned, Mary thought. He won't understand that I didn't want to leave him! The thought made her sadder than thinking of her own death.

    The double mastectomy was harder on Mary than her doctors had anticipated and Mary was hospitalized for over two weeks. Jim took Lucky for his evening walk faithfully, but the little dog just drooped, whining and miserable.

    Finally the day came for Mary to leave the hospital. When she arrived home, Mary was so exhausted she couldn't even make it up the steps to her bedroom. Jim made his wife comfortable on the couch and left her to nap. 

    Lucky stood watching Mary but he didn't come to her when she called. It made Mary sad but sleep soon overcame her and she dozed. 


    When Mary woke for a second she couldn't understand what was wrong. She couldn't move her head and her body felt heavy and hot. But panic soon gave way to laughter when Mary realized the problem. She was covered, literally blanketed, with every treasure Lucky owned! 


    While she had slept, the sorrowing dog had made trip after trip to the basement bringing his beloved mistress all his favorite things in life.


    He had covered her with his love.

    Mary forgot about dying. Instead she and Lucky began living again, walking further and further together every day. It's been 12 years now and Mary is still cancer-free. Lucky. He still steals treasures and stashes them in his toy box but Mary remains his greatest treasure. 

    <img src="http://mail.verizon.com/webmail/cid:4.4033078399@web180406.mail.gq1.yahoo.com” height=”237″ alt=”image004.jpg@01CBF519.CD06E600” width=”211″ />
    Remember…..live every day to the fullest. Each minute is a blessing from God. And never forget….the people who make a difference in our lives are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones that care for us.

    If you see someone without a smile today give them one of yours! Live simply. Love seriously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God .


    A small request
     


    All you are asked to do is keep this circulating.

    I pray for the cure of cancer.

    All you are asked to do is keep this circulating, even if it is only to one more person, in memory of anyone you know that has been struck down by cancer or is still fighting their battle.
