Baby Formula Shortage
Ole Town Drugs: “To all moms that can’t find baby formula, Go to Amazon website … Go to bottom of that page and Change U.S. to Canada … You’ll get all the “Baby Formula” you need. Reports are - they are not having a shortage, just us. Have it shipped right to your door.” (I did not try this as my Grand Gran’s doesn’t need formula.)
If you praise a woman who aborted a child, because she ‘did what was best for herself, then I hope you praise men for abandoning their children, because they did what was best for themselves.
Do you know the full story of the recent Kentucky Derby winner? As a colt, this horse finished dead last in it’s first race. He was placed in the “Claim Race” by his owner. He was purchased by new owner. In his first race he placed 27th. He finished 3rd twice, 4th once and then placed 5th. His owner still had confidence in him. (But then, one day before the Kentucky Derby, another horse failed when his owner removed his horse from the race.) That allowed, at the last moment, for his trainer to get him in 20 seconds before the deadline. Suddenly he was in the game! Neither his owner, nor his jockey, had been associated with the Derby. Odds of his winning were 80 to 1. (The second largest odds in Derby history!) Half way around the track he was 16 horses back. In just a few seconds he magically, went to second place and he struggled for breath and was the front runner. The announcer struggled to identify his name. This was the longest shot in history! Well done Rich Strike.
Can’t clean the whole room, clean a corner of it! Can’t do the dishes, do a dish. Can’t get a shower? Wash your face. Always look for the thing you can do, with the energy and focus that you do have. Little wins, pave the way for bigger wins. 1% beats 0%!

Psychology says: When you focus on problems, you will have more problems. When you focus on possibilities, you will have more opportunities!
HOPE: If you carry one thing throughout your entire life, let it be hope! Let it be hope that better things are ahead. Let it be hope that you are stronger than any challenge

that comes your way. Let it be hope that you are exactly where you are meant to be right now. Because during these times, hope will be the very thing that carries you through. Never let hard lessons harden your heart; the hard lessons in life are to make you better not bitter.
Husband to wife: I’m a grown man. Stop mothering me! Also, what is my password? Have you seen my car keys? Did you make my Dr.’s appointment? Have you made my dinner yet? I don’t have any clean underwear! (God love them!)
Our lives are the only Bible some people will ever read. This is a really scary example of how much people, are watching us as Christians, and will put us on guard. Remember, you carry the name of Christ on your shoulders when you call yourself a Christian. Watch your thoughts, they become actions. Watch your actions, they become your habits. Watch your habits they become your character. Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.
Waiting to come to the Lord, when you get your life cleaned up, is like waiting to go to the E.R. when you stop bleeding. He doesn’t love you for some future version of you. He loves us in our mess! Death is not a tragedy! It is our passport to glory. Death without Christ is the tragedy. Those who died yesterday had plans for this morning. All those that died last night had plans for tonight. Don’t take life for granted. In the blink of an eye, everything can change. So, forgive often and love more with all your heart. You may never get that chance again!
Have a blessed week and share it with others!
