Quick Thought Jim, a 16 year old Christian boy, came to his dad with a serious question. "Dad, I have a question," Jim asked. "I'm busy. I don't have the time," his dad quickly replied. Jim went to his mom. "Mom, I have a question." " Not now, Jim. I'm trying to prepare dinner," she answered. So where did Jim go next? He went outside to his friend, Tom. "What have you been doing," Tom asked. "Trying to get a question answered,... Hey! maybe you can answer my question" Jim said. "Do you think it's okay to have a beer if you don't get drunk," Jim slowly asked? "Of course it is! It's perfectly fine!" Tom replied. There is a lot of truth to this story. If you won't answer your kids questions, then the world will. Often times, when a child comes to his parent with a serious question, (that could have an impact on their future) the parent is to busy to answer his child's question. Kids need the advice of their parents, or else they will go to their friends and receive the wrong advice. Most of the time, this wrong advice will change a Christian kid to a one that has a ruined life. Parents if you ignore your kids questions when they are young, they will ignore your answers when they're old. Please answer your kids questions, it could change their future. Your friends will influence you for good or bad. Kids, choose your friends wisely. Don't pick a friend, just because they're popular in school. Don't pick a friend, just because he has the coolest video games. Don't pick a friend just because he wears the best clothes. Don't pick friends, just because you look cool with them around. So, how do we know what people to hang around? 1: Ask your parents advice. The truth is, if your parents are Christians, your parent will have some, if not the best, advice on which people to hang around. Parents will see what you don't in other kids. Trust your parent's advice and obey it. 2: Look at that particular person's spiritual background. Often, most kids don't have the best spiritual life. You know why? Probably because, they are listening to the wrong things on their MP3, watching the wrong things on TV, and looking at the wrong things on their PC. Spirituality is the key to finding the right friend. 3: Pray. This may sound funny, but God is very interested in the friends you pick. Friends are some of the most important influences in your life. God is very, very interested in who is influencing you. Your friends should be picked by you, your parents, and God. God should be your best friend, and He wants you to talk to Him about the friends you have. In today's world, these two subjects are a major problem because nobody wants to correct them. It is about time us Christians stood up for the right and pushed these problems out of America.

If I could catch a rainbow I would do it just for you And share with you its beauty On the days you're feeling blue. If I could build a mountain You could call your very own; A place to find serenity, A place to be alone. If I could take your troubles I would toss them in the sea, But all these things, I'm finding, Are impossible for me. I cannot build a mountain Or catch a rainbow fair, But let me be what I know best, A friend who's always there.. This is a Hug Certificate!!

WE NEED REMINDED SOMETIMES! Best Prayer I Have Heard In A Long Time... Heavenly Father, Help us remember that the jerk who cut us off in traffic last night is a single mother who worked nine hours that day and is rushing home to cook dinner, help with homework, do the laundry and spend a few precious moments with her children. Help us to remember that the pierced, tattooed, disinterested young man who can't make change correctly is a worried 19-year-old college student, balancing his apprehension over final exams with his fear of not getting his student loans for next semester. Remind us, Lord, that the scary looking bum, begging for money in the same spot every day (who really ought to get a job!) is a slave to addictions that we can only imagine in our worst nightmares Help us to remember that the old couple walking annoyingly slow through the store aisles and blocking our shopping progress are savoring this moment, knowing that, based on the biopsy report she got back last week, this will be the last year that they go shopping together Heavenly Father, remind us each day that, of all the gifts you give us, the greatest gift is love. It is not enough to share that love with those we hold dear. Open our hearts not to just those who are close to us, but to all humanity. Let us be slow to judge and quick to forgive, show patience, empathy and love.

JUST TO LET YOU KNOW THAT IT'S CHRISTIAN PERSON WEEK AND YOU SHOULD SEND THIS TO ALL BEAUTIFUL CHRISTIAN PEOPLE. When I say that 'I am a Christian', I am not shouting that 'I am clean living. I'm whispering 'I was lost, but now I'm found and forgiven.' When I say 'I am a Christian', I don't speak of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide. When I say 'I am a Christian', I'm not trying to be strong. I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on. When I say 'I am a Christian', I'm not bragging of success. I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess. When I say 'I am a Christian', I'm not claiming to be perfect. My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it. When I say 'I am a Christian', I still feel the sting of pain. I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name. When I say 'I am a Christian', I'm not holier than thou, I'm just a simple sinner who received God's good grace, somehow! Today is Beautiful Christian Person's Day. Pretty is as Pretty does but, Beautiful is just plain Beautiful.. If you share this with another person they will know you care about them! Be Blessed, Be a Blessing.
