Good Morning troops!! Good Morning everyone! Here is today's humor attempt!

The aspiring psychiatrists were attending their first class on emotional extremes. "Just to establish some parameters," said the professor to the student from Arkansas, "What is the opposite of joy?"

"Sadness," said the student.

And the opposite of depression?" he asked of the young lady from Oklahoma.

"Elation," said she.

"And you sir," he said to the young man from Texas, "how about the opposite of woe?"

The Texan replied, "Sir, I believe that would be giddy-up."

Lutheran : Commemoration of Lars Skrefsrud, missionary to India


Religious History
1518 Swiss Reformer Ulrich Zwingli, 34, was elected People's Preacher at the Old Minster Church in Zurich, where he continued as pastor for the remaining 13 years of his life.
1640 English Puritans introduced the "Root and Branch" petition to the Long Parliament in London. It demanded the English episcopacy, "with all its dependencies, roots and branches, be abolished." (The imagery comes from Malachi 4:1.)
1792 Birth of Joseph Mohr, the Austrian Roman Catholic vicar who, along with the Oberndorf Church organist Franz Gruber, on Christmas Eve of 1818, authored the enduring Christmas hymn, "Stille Nacht" ("Silent Night").
1962 American missionary and apologist Francis Schaeffer wrote in a letter: 'Our trusting the Lord does not mean that there are not times of tears. I think it is a mistake as Christians to act as though trusting the Lord and tears are not compatible.'
1975 The Central American Mission changed its name to CAM Intentional, after expanding its missionary efforts into Latin America. (This evangelical mission group was founded in 1890 by C.I. Scofield, editor of the Scofield Bible.)

Good morning!!

The kids and I just got back from having breakfast with Santa...For some odd reason, we knew just about every Santa's helper that was there, and they all made an extreme fuss over the kids!! Santa (I don't know who was playing Santa) came over and played with the kids...asked them what they wanted him to bring to them...talked to them while they ate breakfast, and then went to sit down. He didn't do that with any of the other kids there...so Crys and Cody felt really special.

Crys has to be at practice for the Christmas play in about an hour. The teacher who is going to be there is going to order pizza for their lunch! She really feels like this is her day!!

He said that he felt pretty safe over there. He even said a bunch of the guys he was with went "dune-buggying" there. We have sand dunes here in West Texas (go figure--looks like a beach with no ocean!), but he said those dunes were huge and awesome to ride on! But, you know, I'm a mom and the Middle East always looks dangerous to us!
