2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short not to enjoy it.

4. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.

5. Don’t buy stuff you don’t need.

6. You don’t have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.

7. Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone.

8. It’s OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye… But don’t worry; God never blinks.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d

45. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.

WOMAN HAVING AFFAIR WHILE HUSBAND IS AT WORK

A woman is having an affair during the day while her husband is at work. Her 9 year old son comes home unexpectedly, sees them and hides in the bedroom closet to watch. The woman’s husband also comes home. She puts her lover in the closet, not realizing that the little boy is in there already.

The little boy says, “Its dark in here.”

The man says, “Yes, it is.”

Boy ~ “I have a baseball.”

Man ~ “That’s nice.”

Boy ~ “Want to buy it?”

Man ~ “No, thanks.”

Boy ~ “My dad’s outside.”

Man ~ “OK, how much?”

Boy ~ “$250?

In the next few weeks, it happens again that the boy and the lover are in the closet together.

Boy ~ “Its dark in here.”

Man ~ “Yes, it is.”

Boy ~ “I have a baseball glove.”

The lover remembering the last time, asks the boy, “How much?”

Boy ~ “$750?

Man ~ “Fine.”

A few days later, the father says to the boy, “Grab your glove, let’s go outside and have a game of catch.”

The boy says, “I can’t, I sold my baseball and my glove.”

The father asks, “How much did you sell them for?”

Boy ~ “$1,000?

The father says, “That’s terrible to overcharge your friends like that…that is way more than those two things cost. I’m going to take you to church and make you confess.”

They go to the church and the father makes the little boy sit in the confession booth and he closes the door.

The boy says, “Dark in here.”

The priest says, “Don’t start that crap again.”

THIS BEAUTIFUL BABY GIRL WILL ONLY ‘LIVE A FEW WEEKS’, SO HER PARENTS WON’T LEAVE HER SIDE..

Following the birth of their second second daughter Abigail, Erika and Stephen Jones received news that no parent should ever hear…Born with Down Syndrome, doctors discovered an inoperable brain tumour in their beautiful new born girl, shortly after she entered this world.With no way to treat the tumour, Erika and Stephen were left with some very difficult choices…

Rather than dwell in sadness at the fate of their daughter, the young parents decided to show Abigail as much love as humanly possible during her short time on earth.They spent every waking moment with Abigail, showering her with love, hugs and kisses.

Even with their positive outlook on the situation, the Jones family still feel bouts of pain at their daughters situation. They say that experience has helped them to see how much of a gift life truly is and that we should never take it for granted. They say that every moment with Abigail has filled them with joy and that will always cherish their time with her.

“When a loved one relies on you for support in the midst of an illness, hold on to the Lord. When hope feels beyond reach, stay the course. When fear overwhelms, turn to Scripture. And when exhaustion sets in, trust in God for strength”. Psalm 46:1 (GNTD)
God is our shelter and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.

A YOUNG MAN’S LETTER FROM HELL! “A SERIOUS CALL TO ALL CHRISTIANS”

The following is a dramatic presentation. It was written by a fictitious High School Student named Josh, to a friend named Zack.
Although Zack had every opportunity to tell Josh about Jesus… he didn’t.They were best friends. They played soccer together, They went to classes together, They partied together,They shared their lives with each other.

But there is one thing Zack held back from Josh… his personal relationship with Jesus Christ.The rest of the story is simple and sad…A few too many beers… A tragic drive home… A crash… a death, a funeral… A Letter

Here is that letter… A letter from Hell. 

Dear Zack I died today. It’s a lot different than I expected. You see, I always thought that dying would bring me to a world that is foggy and hazy. But this place is crystal clear… It’s even more real than my life on Earth.

I can think. I can talk. I can even feel.
Right after the wreck I could feel my spirit leaving my body. It was the weirdest thing, Zack. I thought I heard you screaming out to me, man. Must have been just imagining things.
At first I was just standing in line, getting registered I guess. They asked me for my name…and began to look in this thing they called the Book of Life.

I guess they couldn’t find it though because this huge angel standing next to me grabbed me by the arm and started dragging me away. I was terrified. I had no idea what was going on. I asked the angel where he was taking me, but he didn’t answer. So I asked him again…

Finally, he told me that only those, whose names were written in the Book of Life, could enter into Heaven and the rest would be condemned to Hell forever.
Man I was scared. The angel threw me into some kind of holding cell. Where I’ve been sitting and thinking for a long long time. Do you want to know what I’ve been thinking about?

I’ve been thinking about YOU.
Zack, You’re a Christian.
You told me so yourself. I mean we talked about it three different times today.
Kelly brought it up and you laughed it off. Coach Adams brought it up and you changed the subject.

I mean, it came up right before the wreck. Well the question I can’t get out of my mind is this, Zack. Why haven’t you ever told me about how to become a Christian?
You say you are my friend, but if you really were you would have told me about this Jesus and told me how to escape this terrible place that I’m headed for.

I can feel my heart pounding in my chest, the angels who have been chosen to cast me into hell are coming down the hallway. I can hear their footsteps.

I have heard of this Hell. They call it the Lake of Fire.

I can’t stand it, Zack. I am terrified. No! The angels are at the door. Oh no, no! They’re coming in and they’re pointing at me. They’re grabbing me and carrying me out of the room.
I already can smell the burning sulfur and brimstone. I can see the edge of the cliff where Hell burns.

This is it. I am without hope.

We’re coming closer, closer, closer. My heart is bursting with fear. They’re holding me over the flames. I am damned forever.

This is it. They are throwing me in. Fire, Pain, HELL.

Why Zack? Why didn’t you ever tell me about Jesus?

Your friend,
Josh

P.S. Wish you were here.

 

THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST IS NEAR! SIGNS OF JESUS’ SECOND COMING..

Jesus is coming again.There are signs of Jesus’ second coming. It’s in the Bible, Matthew 24:29-31, NKJV. “Then He spoke to them a parable: “Look at the fig tree, and all the trees. When they are already budding, you see and know for yourselves that summer is now near. So you also, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near.”

There will be wars, though they may seem overwhelming, it is not the end. It’s in the Bible, Matthew 24:6, NKJV. “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.”

Earthquakes and famines, and all the signs are only the contractions of what’s coming. It’s in the Bible, Matthew 24:7-8, NKJV. “There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.”

It’s super important to study your bible and learn about what’s going to happen and what to look for when the time is near. Jesus told us He was coming back and He intends to keep His promise.

“Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.” (Hebrews 9:28)

 

7 MIRACLES CAUGHT ON CAMERA THAT SCIENCE CAN’T EXPLAIN!

When a woman’s SUV is submerged in water during a flood, by standers rush to save her. One man is able to reach under the water, put his hand through an open window and pull the woman to safety. When the car is recovered all the windows were still close

During a funeral in the Philippines, a toddler pronounced dead at the hospital moves in her coffin. The child is rushed to the hospital where she recovers from her sickness.

When rescue workers in Utah discovered a crashed vehicle partially submerged in water beneath a bridge they rushed to help. While approaching the vehicles an adult, female voice can clearly be heard begging for help. The workers respond with shouts of reassurance. They then discover a mother which had been dead for some time and an unconscious baby in the back seat. Workers attribute the mysterious voice to miraclous intervention.

When a white Volkswagen ran over a grandmother and her five year old grandson, it was nothing short of miracle that both are caught on camera standing up from the accident and walking away.

An 83 year old holy man in India has claimed that he can live without eating or drinking. During a 15-day scientific study he was videoed and observed by a medical team neither eating nor drinking or passing urine. He claims that Devine powers allow him to survive without food.

The Lady of Akita statue has been caught on camera crying on many occasions. When the tears were studied they were found to in fact be human tears.

After a devastating earth quake shook the Indian Ocean off the coast of North Sumatra the following Tsunami wiped out much of the coastal region. Some of the few surviving buildings were Mosques. These holy places were left almost entirely without damage amid the devastation.

 

DYING MAN SAYS HE SAW GOD AND HE GAVE HIM A WARNING FOR ALL..

When an elderly gentleman was on his deathbed, he received a vision from God. Not only did the creator visit Mr. Herbert Broome during his last minutes on Earth, he gave the man a message that Broome was able to transmit to every one of us. Broome utter his last words to the eager people at his bedside.

He told them he had been visited by God and that he had a message to share with the world. They eagerly penned down everything he said – “If you had seen what I saw in the hospital, there would be no doubt in your mind forever, because hell is so terrible so awful. It goes as far as eternity, forever & ever. Once you’re in hell, you’re in hell.

“The Lord gave me a glimpse of heaven and I saw an angel. I saw my guardian angel. And also a glimpse of hell. And I’m telling you now, please listen, Hell is so bad, so awful , you have no idea how bad hell is.”

“Every one of us has a choice. God gave us free will to choose from what’s right and what’s wrong, between blessings and curses and between Life or Death. God don’t force us to Obey Him but warned us if we choose to disobey and it’s eternal consequences.”

TEXAS TEEN GIRL FORCED BY TEACHER TO DENY GOD EXISTS SHE REFUSED AND DID THIS INSTEAD.

“Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father in heaven.”(Matthew 10:32-33) 

A teacher in Katy, Texas, reportedly handed her students an assignment that called for them to DENY the existence of God, or else they’ll face a poor grade. Jordan Wooley, a seventh-grade student with a straight-A average at the West Memorial Junior High School – a facility within the Katy Independent School District – told school board members her classmates were given a test on the existence of God. Here’s a video of her she boldly speaking of her firm belief and faith in the Lord addressing her concern with her teacher in front of the School Board.

While some people choose to believe that god exist, others choose not to. None of us know the truth, however we do believe in a superior energy that influence all. Religious people call it God, atheists call it Science.

EVERYONE MUST HAVE A RIGHT TO CHOOSE THEIR BELIEFS AND EVERYONE SHOULD RESPECT THEM. Here’s Wooley’s original statement to the school board:

DAD CAUGHT HIS TWINS IN A ‘CONVERSATION”. THEIR EXCHANGE WILL LEAVE YOU IN AWE!

Babies are his creations, and are therefore a blessing to us all. Use these Bible Verses for a better understanding of God’s view of babies, and also for inspiration for blessing the births of new borns. Encourage parents to be, an expecting mom, and family with Scripture that celebrates new life..

Psalm 127:3-5 :Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.

Do twins actually have their own special language : Watch these two twins and you may be convinced of just that! These two sweeties are having an incredibly adorable conversation with each other. It’s so cute to witness the beginning of their no doubt lifelong loving friendship that they will have with each other. They always say how twins have a special connection, and this video really reveals that.

Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.

Share this pure sweetness with all of your friends and family!
