"Don't forget that people will judge you by your actions,
not your intentions. You may have a heart of gold -
but so does a hard-boiled egg."

Ever wonder how James Bond got his name? James Bond,
known to his friends as Jim, was a Philadelphia ornithologist
and the author of a book called Birds of the West India.

While the bird-watching book may not have been a bestseller,
it did catch the attention of an Englishman named Ian Fleming.
At the time, Fleming was living in Jamaica and writing a book
of his own. It was the story of an as yet unnamed British
secret agent who had the code name 007.

One day, as Fleming was sitting at breakfast looking through
his favorite non-fiction tide, he found the perfect name for
his hero: Bond, James Bond. Interestingly, the name Bond was
not chosen because it was strong, exotic, or even memorable.
As Fleming later wrote, "It struck me that this name, brief,
unromantic and yet very masculine, was just what I needed."
Jim Bond didn't know about his fictional namesake until the
early 1960s when he read an interview in which Fleming
explained the origin of his character's name.
Satellite pictures taken from space are very telling. We see them
often on the Central Command television reports and on news Web
sites. Space Imaging is one company that takes satellite pictures
from around the world. Its site has posted some photos of Baghdad
and more that you will find here:
Omnipresence -does that big theological term mean anything to you? Working
it into a conversation might make you sound smart, but does it have any
real import in your life?

Webster defines omnipresence as something or someone present everywhere at
all times . Stuffy definitions don't usually capture such powerful
notions -so consider a contrast to flesh this term out.

Neither you nor I are omnipresent. (Certainly, this is not news to you.)
We are quite the opposite. We are spatially and temporally located. I am
always in one place at one time. Spatially, I am always here or there.
Temporally, I am always located at right now. Yes, I can think back to
yesterday or ahead to tomorrow, but I do so from the vantage of right now.

Consider how our locatedness determines how we can relate and know others.
If I want to see my friend I must go to him. To be with him I must share
the same space with him. And so space separates my friend and me until we
arrive at the same space at the same time. Temporally, I am also
constrained. I cannot snap my fingers and automatically have a ten-year
relationship with someone. I must spend ten years, or travel through ten
years, with them to obtain that. Nor can I just immediately get to my
meeting tomorrow. I must wait until tomorrow for that.

Now an omnipresent entity would not face these limitations. It would be
everywhere for all times. It would not have to travel to meet someone.
It would not have to wait for an appointment. It would already and always
be there.

Is there such a thing in the universe? No, but there is such a Person.
Our word for Him is God, and He is everywhere we ever are. This can be
either a terrifying or comforting truth. For with all others you have the
choice to be with them or leave them, spend time with them or depart, but
with the omnipresent Person you have no such luxury. He is always with
You, there, attentive to your thoughts, your emotions, and your actions.
David, the poet-King, puts it this way, "Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?" This is terrifying if you do not
trust Him, or know that He loves you. Christ tells us that God loves us,
and Christ shows us that God is trustworthy. If you don't believe me,
simply ask Him; He is there with you now.

Does anyone hear our thoughts? When you are in the office meeting and you
think that terrible thing about your boss, are you the only one listening?
When that errant thought about your friend flies across your mind, is the
internal blush only seen by you?

The way we answer these questions, no doubt, will be indicative of the
times in which we live, and a hallmark of our time is the gross
over-emphasis upon the individual. Part and parcel of this over-emphasis
is the manner in which we prize and misconceive the interior life: that
which transpires inside the individual, that which no other human knows
about except when we show it to them through words or actions. We
conceive of our interior life as being wholly our own because we think
that we are the only ones ultimately a party to it. "No one else is in my
thoughts," we think, "therefore they are mine exclusively." And certainly
this can seem to be very true. For instance, I cannot communicate to my
best friend through my thoughts. At dinner with him, if I think, "Pass
the salt," he will not hear me and pass the salt. He might read my body
language, or know my eating habits, and pass the salt. But no matter how
well he knows me, he will never read my thoughts; they will always be
communicated to him through some other medium such as my words or actions.
Thus it is easy to see why we construe our interior life to be a solitary
monologue -for no other human can hear it.

But if we are to take seriously the notion of the omnipresence of God, and
I think that most if not all intuitively know that notion to be true, then
we must explode this conception of the solitary monologue. Your internal
ears are not the only pair attuned to your interior life. The Divine ears,
and eyes for that matter, are attentively fixed on you and your life, both
external and internal. We cannot hide from Him in some corner of our
mind. And just because we might forget that He is there, does not mean
that He forgets that we are there and leaves off to go do something else.

This is terrifying if you do not trust Him, or know that He loves you.
Yet Christ tells us that God loves us, and Christ shows us that God is
trustworthy. If you don't believe me, simply ask God, He is listening to
your thoughts. (Keith Cox)

Verse of the Day

* * * Four important things to KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

D I S C L A I M E R If someone should ask if it's legal to download songs
found on various non-commercial sites, such as this one.

Well, I'm neither a lawyer nor a technician,
and I've begun to wonder if it was legal for
us to tape music off the radio back when
tape recorders first came into being.

And were we committing a crime when we recorded
a movie shown on TV with our VCRs? And was it
really legal to buy a dual-deck recorder for the
express purpose of duplicating cassettes?

My answer to all of the above is, "I don't know."

Nonetheless, here is a formal statement in
some kind of legalize that appears to apply
to this kind of file availability:
