Hidden Sin

Chuck had slowed to a stop when his car was hit from behind and was pushed into the vehicle ahead of him. A sickening, crunching sound indicated that additional vehicles had collided behind them.

As Chuck sat quietly for a moment, he observed that the vehicle directly behind him was pulling out into traffic. Obviously hoping to avoid an encounter with police, the escaping driver neglected to notice he had left something behind. When the police arrived, an officer picked up the hit-and-run driver’s license plate from the ground and said to Chuck, “Someone will be waiting for him when he arrives home. He won’t get away with this.”

Scripture tells us: “Be sure your sin will find you out” (Num. 32:23), as this man who fled the accident discovered. We may sometimes be able to hide our sin from the people around us, but nothing is ever “hidden from [God’s] sight” (Heb. 4:13). He sees each of our failures, thoughts, and motivations (1 Sam. 16:7; Luke 12:2-3).

Believers are given a wonderful promise: “If we confess our sins, [God] is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). So don’t let unconfessed, so-called “hidden” sins come between you and God (vv.6-7).

We cannot hide from God
No matter how we try;
For He knows all we think and do—
We can’t escape His eye. —Hess

Sin may be hidden from others, but never from God.

Read: 1 John 1:5-10

O God, You know my foolishness; and my sins are not hidden from You. —Psalm 69:5
Bible in a year:
2 Chronicles 15-16; John 12:27-50

Written by an Australian Dentist

To Kill an American
You probably missed this in the rush of news, but there was actually a report that someone inPakistan had published in a newspaper, an offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American, any American.

So an Australian dentist wrote an editorial the following day to let everyone know what an American is. So they would know when they found one. (Good one, mate!!!!)

‘An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian orGreek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, Arab, Pakistani or Afghan.

An American may also be a Comanche, Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho, Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes known as native Americans..

An American is Christian, or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims in America than inAfghanistan . The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them chooses.

An American is also free to believe in no religion.. For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God.

An American lives in the most prosperous

land in the history of the world..

The root of that prosperity can be found in theDeclaration of Independence , which recognizes the God given right of each person to the pursuit of happiness.

An American is generous.. Americans have helped out just about every other nation in the world in their time of need, never asking a thing in return.

When Afghanistan was over-run by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country!

As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan ...

The national symbol of America , The Statue of Liberty , welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed. These in fact are the people who built America

Some of them were working in the Twin Towersthe morning of September 11, 2001, earning a better life for their families. It’s been told that the World Trade Center victims were from at least 30 different countries, cultures, and first languages, including those that aided and abetted the terrorists.

So you can try to kill an American if you must. Hitler did. So did General Tojo, and Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung, and other blood-thirsty tyrants in the world.. But, in doing so, you would just be killing yourself. Because Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is an American.

A knight and his men return to their castle after a long hard day of fighting.

“How are we faring?” asks the king.

“Sire,” replies the knight, “I have been robbing and pillaging on your behalf all day, burning the towns of your enemies in the west.”

“What?!” shrieks the king. “I don’t have any enemies to the west!”

“Oh, no...” says the knight. “Well, you do now.”

“Morning Kiss”

A farmer and his wife had just awakened one morning to the crowing of their rooster. While still in bed, the farmer’s wife says, “Pa, you know our neighbor Mr. Jones?”

“Yes Ma, I reckon I do,” replied the sleepy farmer.

“Well, every morning before he leaves the house for work, he gives his wife a big ol’ kiss. Why don’t you ever do that? “

The farmer sighed and said, “Well, I reckon I can, but I just don’t know her very well.”

“You Won’t Understand”
“You Won’t Understand”

Often people say to me “You just won’t understand.”
“You’re way too old,” or “Way too young,” or “YOU are NOT a man.”

I don’t know why some people feel they suffer unique pain.
As if they are the only ones who’ve lost or ceased to gain.
I don’t know why they hide their pain and clutch it ever tighter.
It seems to me that all should know - a burden shared gets lighter.

Why some folks even deign to think the pain that’s in their heart,
Is all their own, to keep and hoard, they set themselves apart.
They keep their eyes from meeting mine lest I should see their hurt.
And even if we stop and speak their words are often curt.

The Bible says: ‘Two’ can withstand what overcomes just ‘one’.
And also that - a ‘Cord of Three’ can scarcely be undone.
Besides, I know the ways of hurt - my heart’s been crushed before.
Friends have betrayed - I’ve lost at love, Despair’s knocked at my door.

And I Remember - thoughts gone wild - and crying late at night.
Not having strength to care at all - much less the strength to fight.
But, someone special came to me - and when my trials were told.
I realized that with their tears - they’d eased my heavy load.

And so, I learned - that Pain - like Love - is bearable if shared.
I don’t know what I would have done without that friend who cared.

My trials did not vanish fast - in fact the time was long.
But sharing gave me breathing space until I could grow strong
Enough to laugh again and even start to smile -
And though it seemed it could not help - It eased my pain awhile.

So, if you think that you can’t share cause I won’t understand.
At least just give me half a chance to lend a helping hand.
For I know that you’re hurting and I know a place to start.
Perhaps if you could realize - your pain burns in my heart.

I know I cannot make your trials and troubles go away.
But maybe I can help a bit to get you through today.
And maybe by tomorrow you won’t need help anymore.
But if you should - Don’t be ashamed - for that’s what friends are for.

And after all is said and done - the trials ceased - you’re whole.
Perhaps you’ll know just what to do to help another soul -
Who’s being crushed by hurt and pain - be it woman or a man.
And you won’t have to hear them say, “You just won’t understand.”
-Author Unknown

“Freedom Peppers”

A man walks up to a cashier in a grocery store. He says, “Hey, how much for these jalapeño peppers?” He pronounces it “jo-la-pen-o,” not “ho-lo-peen-yo.”

The cashier says, “Sir, that’s not what those peppers are called.”

The man replies, “Listen, buddy, this is America, and I can pronounce any word the way I please.”

The cashier responds, “That is as may be, sir, but those are green peppers.”

In the middle of one of Henry Ward Beecher’s most potent political speeches, a member of the crowd gave a perfect imitation of a cock crowing. While the audience roared with laughter, the speaker gave no sign of annoyance, but he removed his watch and studied it while the noise died down.

“That’s odd,” Beecher said at last. “My watch says it’s ten o’clock, but there can’t be any mistake. It must be morning, for the instincts of the lower animals are absolutely infallible.”

What pretty graphics you are posting today, Amy! WOW!

I was expecting company today, but got word they won’t be here until tomorrow. (YAY! One more day to search out and destroy those dust bunnies that I may have missed.)

Patients could gain right to find out who’s seen their health records
By Julian Pecquet - 05/31/11 02:03 PM ET

Patients would be able to find out who has looked at their electronic medical records under a proposed rule opened up for public comment on Tuesday.

Patients would obtain the information by requesting an access report, which would document who electronically accessed and viewed their protected health information. Although providers are currently required to track access to such information, they don’t have to tell patients.

“This proposed rule represents an important step in our continued efforts to promote accountability across the health care system, ensuring that providers properly safeguard private health information,” said Georgina Verdugo, director of the Health and Human Services Office of Civil Rights. “We need to protect peoples’ rights so that they know how their health information has been used or disclosed.”
