A woman recently got a cheque for almost one million dollars in a divorce settlement, her ex-husband is an oil tycoon and she is suing for more as its not enough for her to live on. In my opinion something is wrong.
Dear Santa, could you come early this year? I’ve been really super good, but I do not know if I can last much longer. Please hurry.
If it take one longer than a few seconds to answer, It means they are getting old.

Most spouses forget that they have a spouse at home. When they are going out for any length of time, they seldom tell their spouse where they are going and when they will return. In our research we find that they go out and return several hours later. No wonder conflict erupt. For our research, could you make a comment in our contact page if this happens to you.
A group of salesmen went to a regional sales convention in Chicago … They had assured their wives that they would be home in plenty of time for Friday night’s dinner. In their rush to catch the plane home and with tickets and briefcases, one of these salesmen inadvertently kicked over a table which held a display of apples. Apples flew everywhere. Without stopping or looking back, they all managed to reach the plane in time for their nearly-missed boarding. ALL BUT ONE !!! Feeling compassion for the girl whose stand had been over-turned, he paused, took a deep breath and told his buddies to go on without him, to call his wife when they arrived at their home destination and explain his taking a later flight. Then he returned to the terminal where the apples were all over the terminal floor. He was glad he did. The 16-year-old girl was totally blind! She was softly crying, tears running down her cheeks in frustration, and at the same time helplessly groping for her spilled produce as the crowd swirled about her; no one stopping and no one to care for her plight. The salesman knelt on the floor with her, gathered up the apples, put them back on the table and helped organize her display. As he did this, he noticed that many of them had become battered and bruised; these he set aside in another basket. When he had finished, he pulled out his wallet and said to the girl, “Here, please take this $50 for the damage we did. Are you okay?” She nodded through her tears. He continued on with, “I hope we didn’t spoil your day too badly.”As the salesman started to walk away, the bewildered blind girl called out to him, “Mister….” He paused and turned to look back into those blind eyes. She continued, “Are you Jesus?” He stopped in mid-stride …. and he wondered. He gently went back and said, “No, I am nothing like Jesus – He is good, kind, caring, loving and would never hav bumped into your display in the first place. “The girl gently nodded: “I only asked because I prayed for Jesus to help me gather the apples. He sent you to help me, Thank you for hearing Jesus, Mister.” Then slowly he made his way to catch the later flight with that question burning and bouncing about in his soul: “Are you Jesus?” Do people mistake you for Jesus? That’s the plan, isn’t it? To be so much like Jesus that people cannot tell the difference as we live and interact with a world that is blind to His love, life and grace. You are the apple of His eye even though you, too, have been bruised by a fall. He stopped what He was doing and picked up you and me on a hill called Golgotha/Calvary and paid in full for our damaged fruit. Be JESUS in someone’s life that you cross paths with today!
There are many truths to life and most/many do not experience them. All do not see themselves in it because of pride and selfishness. We will present many links for everyone to read and ponder where each one of us stands. Is Jesus Christ in each of us as we read or are we only walking not aware of what is taking place around us. We pray each one will be open to the articles and perhaps trans-form our attitude, mind and heart.
St. Patrick: An Orthodox Saint
Because St. Patrick lived from 385-461 AD, he was a saint to the schism of 1054 and therefore is a legitimate saint of the Eastern Church. So you don’t have to be Irish to celebrate this great saint. In addition to raising glass to toast this March 17th, also consider learning something about this saint and adding the great prayer of Breastplate of St. Patrick into your family prayers this St. Patrick day.
