~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Lyle Arakaki shares this insight: In Hawaii, because of the time difference with the continental U.S., the NFL Monday Night Football game is played in mid-afternoon, so the local TV station delays its telecast until 6:30 in the evening. When my favorite team plays, I'm too excited to wait for television, so I'll listen to the game on the radio, which broadcasts it live. Then, because they're my favorite team, I'll watch the game on television, too.
If I know my team has won the game, it influences how I watch it on television. If my team fumbles the ball or throws an interception, it's not a problem. I think, That's bad, but it's okay. In the end, we'll win!
"In this world you will have trouble," said Jesus. "But take heart! I have overcome the world" (John 16:33). When going through trouble, knowing the final outcome makes all the difference.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
Proverbs According to JACK
"Don't approach a goat from the front, a horse from the back, or a fool from any side."
"Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you get rid of him on weekends."
"He who really wants to do something finds a way; he who doesn't finds an excuse."
Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, but when they lit a fire in the craft it sank. Proving once again that you can't have your kayak and heat it, too.
