When an old man died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home  in North Platte, Nebraska, it was believed that he had nothing left of any value.Later, when the nurses were going through his meager possessions, they found this poem.. Its quality and content so impressed the staff that copies were made and distributed to everynurse in the hospital. One nurse took her copy to Missouri . The old man's sole bequest to posterity has since appeared inthe Christmas edition of the News Magazine of the St. Louis Association for Mental Health. A slide presentation has also been made based on his simple, but eloquent, poem. And this little old man, with nothing left to give to the world, is now the author of this 'anonymous' poem winging across the Internet.. Crabby Old Man What do you see nurses? . . . .What do you see?What are you thinking . . . . . When you're looking at me?A crabby old man . . . . . ..........Not very wise,Uncertain of habit . . . . .......With faraway eyes? Who dribbles his food . . . . . ..And makes no reply.When you say in a loud voice .'I do wish you'd try!'Who seems not to notice . . . . .The things that you do.And forever is

      Meet Maine 's New Governor --- In case you haven't heard about this guy before, his name will stick in your mind! The new Maine Governor, Paul LePage is making New Jersey 's Chris Christie look like an enabler. He isn't afraid to say what he thinks. Judging by the comments, every time he opens his mouth, his popularity goes up.He brought down the house at his inauguration when he shook his fist toward the media box and said, 'You're on notice! I've inherited a financially troubled State to run. Observe...cover what we do...but don't whine if I don't waste time responding to your every whim just for your amusement.'During his campaign for Governor, he was talking to commercial fishermen who are struggling because of federal fisheries rules. They complained that 0bama brought his family to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park for a long Labor Day holiday and found time to meet with union leaders, but wouldn't talk to the fishermen. LePage replied, 'I'd tell him to go to hell and get out of my State.' The Lame Stream Media crucified LePage, but he jumped 6 points in the pre-election poll.The Martin Luther King incident was a political sandbag, which brought h

It is hard to believe that his prediction is happening here and now. This was 47 years ago. April 3, 1965. An amazing prediction. Do you remember the famous ABC radio commentator Paul Harvey? Millions of Americans listened to his programs which were broadcast over 1,200 radio stations nationwide. When you listen to this, remember the commentary was broadcast 47 years ago on April 3, 1965. It's short...less than three minutes. You will be amazed. http://stg.do/9LDc   Thanks to my friend Gene Steele for sending us this one.

An honest man was being tailgated by a stressed out woman on a busy boulevard. Suddenly, the light turned yellow just in front of him. He did the right thing, s...topping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection. The tailgating woman hit the roof, and the horn, screaming in frustration as she missed her chance to get through the intersection. As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was searched, finger-printed, and photographed, and then placed in a holding cell. After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects. He said, 'I'm very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you, and cussing a blue streak at him. I noticed the 'Choose Life' license plate holder, the 'What Would Jesus Do?' bumper sticker, the 'Follow

57 CENT CHURCH

A sobbing little girl stood near a small church from which she had been turned away because it 'was too crowded.' 'I can't go to Sunday School, 'she sobbed to the pastor as he walked by. Seeing her shabby, unkempt appearance, the pastor guessed the reason and, taking her by the hand, took her inside and found a place for her in the Sunday School class. The child was so touched that she went to bed that night thinking of the children who have no place to worship Jesus. Some two years later, this child lay dead in one of the poor tenement buildings and the parents called for the kind hearted pastor, who had befriended their daughter, to handle the final arrangements. As her poor little body was being moved, a worn and crumpled purse was found which seemed to have been rummaged from some trash dump. Inside was found 57 cents and a note scribbled in childish handwriting which read, 'This is to help build the little church bigger so more children can go to Sunday school. For two years she had saved for this offering of love. When the pastor tearfully read that note, he knew instantly what he would do. Carrying this note and the cracked, red pocketbook to the pulpit, he told the story of

THE CHRISTMAS PAGEANT My husband and I had been happily married (most of the time) for five yearsbut hadn't been blessed with a baby. I decided to do some serious praying and promised God that if he would give us a child,I would be a perfect mother, love it with all my heart and raise it with His word as my guide. God answered my prayers and blessed us with a son. The next year God blessed us with another son. The following year, He blessed us with yet another son. The year after that we were blessed with a daughter. My husband thought we'd been blessed right into poverty.We now had four children, and the oldest was only four years old. I learned never to ask God for anything unless I meant itAs a minister once told me, 'If you pray for rain, make sure you carry an umbrella.' I began reading a few verses of the Bible to the children each day as they lay in their cribs.. I was off to a good start. God had entrusted me with four children andI didn't want to disappoint Him. I tried to be patient the day the children smashed two dozen eggs onthe kitch

Somewhere near Rochester, New York, Ed set out to bag his buck at 5:30 a.m. By 11:30 a.m., he was exhausted and hungry...and still no buck.  At 12 noon,  the mighty hunter Ed guards the remains of his lunch while a passerby snaps a quiet photo  while trying not to startle the deer with a belly laugh.

      Day 18 - October 15, 2012 Day 18 Target: Military Nehemiah 4:9, 13-14 Nevertheless we made our prayer to our God, and because of them we set a watch against them day and night. Therefore I positioned men behind the lower parts of the wall, at the openings; and I set the people according to their families, with their swords, their spears, and their bows.  And I looked, and arose and said to the nobles, to the leaders, and to the rest of the people, “Do not be afraid of them.  Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses. Founding Father Quote: “I urge you by all that is dear, by all that is honorable, by all that is sacred, not only that ye pray but that ye act.” –John Hancock Prayer: Heavenly Father, we pray for our military today as we acknowledge the importance of national defense.  From the founding of America, You have guided the great military minds who have faithfully led our troops to protect and defend our freedoms.  Ironically, we have used these very freedoms to allow other gods to come into our country and

In Memory of Thomas Kincade who died April 6, 2012 in California . THOMAS KINCADE AND HIS DAUGHTER Out of the mouths of babes... I will think of this revelation every time I turn on my windshield wipers. I hope the rain shows in the picture! It's awesome if it does! The message is awesome, too. You must forward the email to save the picture ! One rainy afternoon I was driving along one of the main streets of town, taking those extra precautions necessary when the roads are wet and slick. Suddenly, my daughter, Aspen , spoke up from her relaxed position in her seat. 'Dad, I'm thinking of something.' This announcement usually meant she had been pondering some fact for a while, and was now ready to expound all that her six-year-old mind had discovered. I was eager to hear.  'What are you thinking?' I asked. 'The rain,' she began, 'is like sin, and the windshield wipers are like God wiping our sins away.' After the chill bumps raced up my arms I was able to respond. 'That's really good, Aspen.' Then my curiosity broke in. How far would this little girl take this revelation? So I asked.. 'Do you notice how the rain keeps on coming? What does that tell
