HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY
1-Good or bad, once a practice is accepted by the conservative element of society, the church often follows in stride-
2-The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it-
3-Those we love don't have to be exactly like us, life is too short for drama and petty things so kill slowly, laugh insanely, love truly, forgive quickly and pray often-
4-Friendship isn't about who you have known the longest, it is about those who came into your life and never left your side-
5-Just because you don't like what someone does doesn't mean you can't accept them-
STRANGE THOUGHT-I had amnesia once--or twice-
I'VE LEARNED-Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable--be honest and frank anyway-
DID YOU KNOW-A Chinese checkerboard has 121 holes
5 THINGS I WANT TO KNOW
1-What would happen to the earth if it were hit by a space object as big as the moon?
2-What color was Jesus skin?
3-What made Jesus the Savior, his birth, crucifixion or resurrection?

Answer for today John 20:19-21
SCRIPTURE FOR THE DAY Mark 6:21-29
21 Then the perfect time came for Herodias to cause John’s death. On Herod’s birthday, he gave a dinner party for the most important government leaders, the commanders of his army, and the most important people in Galilee. 22 When the daughter of Herodias[a] came in and danced, she pleased Herod and the people eating with him.So King Herod said to the girl, “Ask me for anything you want, and I will give it to you.” 23 He promised her, “Anything you ask for I will give to you—up to half of my kingdom.”24 The girl went to her mother and asked, “What should I ask for?”Her mother answered, “Ask for the head of John the Baptist.”25 At once the girl went back to the king and said to him, “I want the head of John the Baptist right now on a platter.”26 Although the king was very sad, he had made a promise, and his dinner guests had heard it. So he did not want to refuse what she asked. 27 Immediately the king sent a soldier to bring John’s head. The soldier went and cut off John’s head in the prison 28 and brought it back on a platter. He gave it to the girl, and the girl gave it to her mother. 29 When John’s followers heard this, they came and got John’s body and put it in a tomb.
PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Loving Father, Paid In Full is engraved on the loving hands and feet of our Lord Jesus Christ who gave His all that we could be fully pardoned. We accept this marvelous provision though it is incomprehensible by our finite minds to fully grasp. So many refuse Christ’s substitutionary death and continue to bemoan their pitiful plight in life, wallowing in their dismal existence. But for those of us who accept Christ’s full pardon we enjoy an abundant life, freed from the guilt of our past, and unfearful of our future. Our reservations for the New Jerusalem were secured upon our acceptance of Your free gift of salvation. It’s a win/win situation for all who forsake their sinful life and take up the cross of Jesus. We will still be praising You and giving thanks one million years from now, for never has there been such a gift offered by human hand. It’s because of Jesus and Your amazing grace that we have access to the throne. Amen.
