~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Young love is a flame; very pretty, often very hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. The love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals, deep burning, unquenchable. - Henry Ward Beecher, from the OmniRead Treasuries -Mature Lovers

10. Statistics prove that people who go to church, read their Bible and pray on a regular basis live longer (ETERNAL LIFE).

9. Not coming to church may cause some people to wonder what we are up to.

8. Not coming to church is like not voting. If you don't participate on a regular basis you don't have a right to complain.

7. Not coming to church gives satan an opportunity to drive a wedge between you and the rest of the church.

6. If you're not at church and you have a physical or spiritual need the people of the church are not going to know about it. You deprive them of an opportunity to minister.

5. If you stay away from church you may influence someone else to stay away. This could have eternal consequences.

4. If you stay away from church you give satan an opportunity to drive a wedge between you and God. All satan needs is a tiny crack to get his wedge in.

3. Staying away from church will cause you to loose your fire and zeal for the Lord and His work.

2. Staying away from church makes the statement that our priorities are higher than God's.

1. Staying away from church is being disobedient to God; He commands us to come together to worship Him as a group. Hebrews 10:19-25

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

One Liners From Aiken:

"You should communicate with your muscles, but I don't talk to strangers."

Chaos, panic, & disorder - my work here is done.

Always decide not to decide, unless you decide to change your mind.

Never put off until tomorrow what you can forget about forever.

Did you ever go into an Antique Shop and ask, "What"s new?"

If you go flying back through time and you see somebody else flying forward into the future, always avoid eye contact.

Here at First National, you're not just a number - you're two numbers, a dash, three more numbers, another dash, and another number.

Seen on a fly swatter, 'Pest Doctors - All our patients die. Use this until we get there.'

The score was Hydrogen: 2 and Oxygen: 1 when the game was called because of rain.

A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in.

All generalisations are dangerous, even this one.

I'd always wondered what it would be like to live on the sun, until my mother-in-law suggested that pressing my face against a hot frying pan might give me an idea. Trust me, you "don't" want to move there. - Ted Moran

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

How do camels survive in the inhospitable desert environment?

Let's first dispose of a widely held misconception. No camel carries a canteen on its back. Those humps are not water sacks; they store fat. However camels can convert that fat into water - a good thing, since they might otherwise get dehydrated from their nasty habit of spitting when angry.

As for dealing directly with that hot sun: no sweat. In fact, camels don't have to sweat because - surprise! - they wear a camel's hair coat. The hair on their back is thick enough to shield their skin from the sun and keep heat out. Their relatively hairless belly, on the other hand, enables body heat to escape. All in all, a well engineered, if not always pleasant beast.
