This is for all you girls 40 years and over… and for those who are turning 40, and for those who are scared of moving into their 50's… AND 60's… and for guys who are scared of girls over 40!
Andy Rooney says: As I grow in age, I value women who are over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:
Who comes up with stuff like that? And why isn't it me???

4. Those who live by the sword get shot by those who don't.
5. Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

7. If you lined up all the cars in the world end to end, someone would be stupid enough to try to pass them, five or six at a time... on a hill... on a curve... in the fog.
8. If the shoe fits, get another one just like it.
9. The things that come to those who wait will be the things left by those who got there first.

I Am A Christian
by Carol Wimmer
When I say, "I am a Christian," I'm not shouting, "I've been saved!"
I'm whispering, "I get lost! That's why I chose this way"
When I say, "I am a Christian," I don't speak with human pride
I'm confessing that I stumble-needing God 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 pray for strength to carry on
When I say, "I am a Christian," I'm not bragging of success
I'm admitting that I've failed and cannot ever pay the debt
When I say, "I am a Christian," I don't think I know it all
I submit to my confusion asking humbly to be taught
When I say, "I am a Christian," I'm not claiming to be perfect
My flaws are far too visible but God believes I'm worth it
When I say, "I am a Christian," I still feel the sting of pain
I have my share of heartache which is why I seek His name
When I say, "I am a Christian," I do not wish to judge
I have no authority--I only know I'm loved.

The Pastor of Bay Area Vineyard Church sent me this interesting piece of information:
When Christmas is written "Xmas" it is not attempt to ex Christ out of Christmas. Actually the "X" stands for the Greek letter chi pronounced like the "ch" in Bach. This is the first letter in the Greek title for Jesus. The word is Christos in Greek. So when one places a (chi) X in front of mas they are actually using the Greek letter chi which stands for Christ.
Most Christians are not aware of this so they think it is an attempt to be politically correct. So now you know. (If you didn't already.)
