My niece told all her little friends with pride that she had seen a man-eating shark at the aquarium,
to which one of them replied,
"That's nothing! I saw a man eating shrimp at Long John Silver's."

The 10 Commandments - Texas Style

People in Texas have trouble with all those "shalls" and "shall nots" in the Ten Commandments.

Folks there just aren't used to talking in those terms. So, some folks out in west Texas got together and translated the "King James" into "King Ranch" language:

The Cowboy's Ten Commandments

(1) Just one God.

(2) Honor yer Ma & Pa.

(3) No tellin' tales or gossipin'.

(4) Git yourself to Sunday meetin'.

(5) Put nothin' before God.

(6) No foolin' around with another fellow's gal.

(7) No killin.'

(8) Watch yer mouth.

(9) Don't take what ain't yers.

(10) Don't be hankerin' for yer buddy's stuff.

TREAT OTHERS JUST THE WAY YOU WANT TO BE TREATED

Yes, DD. “Seems like only yesterday”, doesn’t it?

George Hamilton’s mother was on one of the morning talk shows, many years ago (I think she was being interviewed by Diane Sawyer - but don’t recall).

“Mrs. Hamilton - how old are you?” Then, after a short pause, “Oh, I’m so sorry. I should know better than to ask a woman her age!”

“Oh, my dear,” Mrs. Hamilton replied, “You can’t lie about your age, when your son needs a face lift!”

I still smile when I think of that interaction.

My son has grey hair, now, and it is a reminder of how far up in the years this granny is getting. LOL!!!

I know you had a great time at your grandson’s Birthday party!

Isn’t that the sweetest story and that precious little dog was so thankful and wanted to lick the man’s face who was helping him. Just darling and so touching. I would take that sweet dog.

I always liked that song and Brenda Lee, too!

A little side note concerning my April 1st birthday. My dad’s birthday was March 31st and they wanted me to be born that day so bad and as my Dad always teased me that “You were always stubborn starting on your birthday.” And Dad knew I was anything but stubborn through my life! Just some tidbits of life....LOL!

Freep mail me to be on or off the Daily Bread ping list

Known For Compassion
April 2, 2011

During Major Gen. Mark Graham’s 2 years as commander of Fort Carson, Colorado, he became known and loved for the way he treated others. One US Army colleague said: “I have never come across another general officer who was so compassionate and so concerned about the well-being of soldiers and their families.” After losing one son to suicide and another who was killed in action, Mark and his wife, Carol, dedicated themselves to helping soldiers and their families cope with service-related stress, depression, and loss.

In the book of Acts, a follower of Christ was well known for his care and concern toward others. His name was Joseph, but in the early church, the apostles called him Barnabas—“son of encouragement.” It was Barnabas who vouched for the newly converted Saul when others doubted the sincerity of his faith (Acts 9:26-27). Later, Barnabas brought Saul from Tarsus to teach the believers in Antioch (11:25-26). And it was Barnabas who wanted to give John Mark a second chance after his failure on a previous missionary journey (15:36-38).

Compassion is an inner feeling resulting in outward action. It should be our daily uniform of service (Col. 3:12). By God’s grace, may we be known for it.

Lord, help us be compassionate
To people in their grief;
Then tell them of the love of Christ,
Who’ll bring their souls relief. —Sper

True compassion is love in action.

Read: Acts 11:19-26

He was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord. —Acts 11:24
Bible in a year:
Judges 16-18; Luke 7:1-30

Walk a little plainer daddy
Said a little boy so frail,
I'm following your footsteps and
I don't want to fail.
Sometimes your steps are plain
Sometimes they are hard to see,
So walk a little plainer Daddy.
For you are leading me."

I know that once you walked
This way many years ago,
What you did along the way
I'd really like to know
For sometimes when I'm tempted
I don't know what to do
So walk a little plainer, Daddy,
For I must follow you.

Someday when I'm grown up.
You are like I want to be,
Then I will have a little boy
Who will want to follow me
And I want to lead him right.
And help him to be true
So walk a little plainer, Daddy
For we must follow you.

Oh Yum! My very favorite thing! I have 5 in my candy hiding place now....LOL! I have a big red apple on the back of one of the counters and I always kept candy in there for my granddaughters when they visited. They would go to the big red apple to see what I had in there and get what they wanted!

Now I use it for myself mostly! LOL! After Easter is over, there will be no more marshmallow eggs...boohoo! What WILL I do? I could write new words to that old song “What’ll I Do?” Remember that one!

Happy Caturday to YOU, too, Tiapam and everyone!

I got this in my email this morning, and it woke me up! Wait ‘til you hear this little boy (8 years old) playing a tribute to Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass on his trumpet.

His name is Geoffrey Gallente and he is incredibly GOOD!!

Here he is playing “It is well with my soul”:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFhLsp2lMuY

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Refrain

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

Refrain

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

Refrain

For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.

Refrain

But, Lord, ‘tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,
The sky, not the grave, is our goal;
Oh trump of the angel! Oh voice of the Lord!
Blessèd hope, blessèd rest of my soul!

Refrain

And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

Refrain

I just learned something about video’s not playing sometimes.
The first time I played Frank’s song, it was perfect and after I posted it, I checked it again to see is all was okay. The video would start and as soon as the advertisement on the right started moving, it messed up the video, plus I couldn’t get the back button to work. When the moving video stopped, the video started playing again. And this happened over and over.

to be named ... a son of encouragement is a praise. How precious to be know for encouragement. Too inspire or give inspiration, hearten, lift up, support, to build confidence, all compassionate.

Father, help me to be encouraging and inspiring to those around me and with whom I come in contact, daily as I go about, amen.

Compassionate is the LORD. He shares in our suffering, he gives aid, sympathy, mercy; Thank thee LORD for thy compassion on thy children. We are encouraged by His Word. Praise the LORD!
