Scripture of the Week
1 Corinthians 1:18-19: “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: „I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.‟”
Something to Smile About
• All my life I thought air was free…until I bought a bag of chips.
• Never laugh at your spouse’s choices….YOU are one of them.
• Oh! I offend you with my opinion? You should hear the ones I keep to myself!
• Okay, so you are 10 years old, you have a laptop, iPod, Facebook and a blackberry….When I was 10, I only had one thing to play with….it was called “OUTSIDE.”
• People write congrats because they can’t spell congrajlashins.

“Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.” — Helen Keller
“The strength of a man consists in finding out the way in which God is going, and going in that way too.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Faith beholds a feeble light,
Up the blackness streaking;
Knowing God’s own time is best,
In a patient hope I rest
For the full day-breaking!”
