~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
A line of scattered thunderstorms blocked our flight home from Orlando to Illinois in the Twin Comanche. Jacksonville air traffic control center asked if we had radar or a stormscope on board to assist in circumnavigating the weather. We confirmed the stormscope and began picking a winding path through the intense electrical activity.
As we sought to penetrate the line of storms, we noticed a light area amidst the menacing dark clouds. Normally, a light area could signify better weather, but our instruments did not agree. Instead the stormscope pointed to one of the darker clouds ahead as being the area of least electrical activity. As I turned the plane's nose toward the dark cloud, my dad turned to me inquisitively making sure I was making the right choice.
In less than two minutes we penetrated the dark cloud and burst out into the clear, while on both sides we could see lightening constant lightening strikes.
"I trust the stormscope," I explained to my dad. "After spending nearly a thousand hours a year flying through rough weather day and night over the Caribbean and vast South American jungles, I've learned to bet my life on the instruments."
I also bet my life every day on God's promises. He faithfully has taken me through many dark days–a hijacking, gang assaults, blindfolded, hands tied behind my back, interrogation, beating and imprisonment and dozens of financially impossible projects. In each case, God's faithfulness successfully brought us through the darkness.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
A tired Mrs. Clancy opened the front door to a young man who said, "I'm asking for donations for the new children's home we're building. I hope you'll give what you can."
"To be sure," said the beleaguered woman, "I'll give you two boys, two girls, or one of each."

Attachment Removed by Outlook
Dear Computer Lady,
Just to say that when I receive an attachment that has been "removed by outlook" all I do is hit the forward button, click on the attachment and whalla I have an opened attachment. Frustrating but it works. - Patricia
