Happy Valentines Day
If I could speak in any language in heaven or on earth but didn't love others, I would only be making meaningless noise like a loud gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I knew all the mysteries of the future and knew everything about everything, but didn't love others, what good would I be? And
if I had the gift of faith so that I could speak to a mountain and make it move, without love I would be no good to anybody. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn't love others, I would be of no value
whatsoever. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
May You Always Experience This Kind Of Love, Dr. Howdy

. There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to rebuild. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to lose. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak up. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace.
May this be your time to laugh, embrace & receive personal peace, Dr. Howdy
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” – I CORINTHIANS 13:4-7 NIV
Lord, Because love is patient… Help me to be slow to judge, but quick to listen. Hesitant to criticize, but eager to encourage, remembering your endless patience with me.
Because love is kind… Help my words to be gentle and my actions to be thoughtful. Remind me to smile and to say “Please” and “Thank You” because those little things still mean so much.
Because love does not envy or boast, and it is not proud… Help me have a heart that is humble and sees the good in others. May I celebrate and appreciate all that I have and all that I am, as well as doing the same for those around me.
Because love is not rude or self-seeking… Help me to speak words that are easy on the ear and on the heart. When I’m tempted to get wrapped up in my own little world, remind me there’s a great big world out there full of needs and hurts.
Because love is not easily angered and keeps no record of wrongs… Help me to forgive others as you have forgiven me. When I want to hold onto a grudge, gently help me release it so I can reach out with a hand of love instead.
Because love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth… Help me stand up for what is right and good. May I defend the defenseless, and help the helpless. Show me how I can make a difference.
Because love always protects and always trusts… Help me to be a refuge for those around me. When the world outside is harsh and cold, may my heart be a place of acceptance and warmth.
Finally, because love always perseveres… Help my heart continually beat with love for You and others. Thank you for this day when we celebrate love, and for showing us what that word really means. Amen.
Dear Howdy, I have been receiving your "paper" for a while under S___@T___.com for a while and love it! I was recently married and so my email address changed to reflect my new name. Keep up the great work! Suzanne
*Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. --1 Peter 5
*An elephant's trunk is as important to it as our hands are to us. With its trunk, an elephant can pick up a pea or throw a huge, heavy log. A full-grown elephant's trunk is about seven feet long (2 meters) and weighs about 300 pounds (140 kilograms). This amazing organ contains more than 100,000 muscles and no bones at all.
The trunk is an extension of the elephant's nose and upper lip. At its tip, there are two delicate, fleshy buds that act much like our fingers. The animal uses it for drinking (by sucking in water and spraying it into its mouth), for washing (by spraying its body), for communicating (by trumpeting through it), for smelling, for breathing, and in many other ways. It can hold more than a gallon of water. Remember who the elephant's Creator is? See Genesis 1 for details.
German scientists dug 50 meters down and discovered small pieces of copper. After studying these pieces for a long time, Germany announced that the ancient Germans 25,000 years ago had a nation-wide telephone net.
Naturally, the Russian government was not that easily impressed. They ordered their own scientists to dig even deeper. 100 meters down they found small pieces of glass and they soon announced that the ancient Russians 35,000 years ago already had a nation-wide fiber net.
American scientists were outraged by this. They dug 200 meters down & found absolutely nothing. They happily concluded that the ancient Americans 55,000 years ago had cellular telephones.
*Centuries ago, English was mostly spoken by a few million people in the British Isles, and there were a few local dialects such as Irish English. But in the last century, the language has exploded across the world and diversified, picking up many words and pronunciation styles from local tongues.
Measured by the number of people for whom English is their first language, 72% speak American English and 16% use British English. 6% use Canadian English, 5% use Australian English and 1% use New Zealand English. There are also dozens of minor dialects, including Caribbean, South African, (Asian) Indian, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh.
Even within American English there are significant regional differences. Boston English is different from the language spoken in Atlanta, and Chicago English is different from both of them.
Recently a man in Paris nearly got away with stealing several paintings from the Louvre. However, after planning the crime, getting in and out past security, he was captured only 2 blocks away when his Ford Econoline ran out of gas. When asked how he could mastermind such a daring and otherwise brilliant crime and then make such an obvious error...
... He replied: "I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh."...
In a tragic circumstance, a severely developmentally disabled twenty-two-year-old woman was raped and impregnated. She has no family and lives alone in a state of Florida housing facility. She is now at least five months pregnant and because of her disabilities is unable to even identify the rapist.
On May 13, Florida Governor Jeb Bush asked state lawyers to appoint a guardian for the unborn child. He believes it is appropriate to intervene in this case because it is a "uniquely troubling situation." In a statement he said, "Given the facts of the case, it is entirely appropriate that an advocate be appointed to represent the unborn child's best interests in all decisions." The governor is absolutely right.
Now in this case nobody is even suggesting the woman have an abortion, but civil liberties and pro-abortion groups are howling, and they have filed a brief to block the appointment of a guardian for the child. Appointing a guardian, they say, "would go against a 1989 Florida Supreme Court ruling that said fetuses cannot have guardians because they are not legally people."
That is precisely what is at issue here, and the pro-abortion groups know it. If an unborn child can have a state-appointed guardian to look after his or her interests, it is ludicrous to then maintain that the unborn child is not a person. And if unborn children are persons, their rights -- including the right to life -- must be protected by the state.
And that is why these same pro-abortion forces are opposing the Unborn Victims of Violence Act in Congress. The House of Representatives bill is called "Laci and Conner's Law." Laci Peterson's body and the body her unborn son, Conner, were found washed ashore near San Francisco. Scott Peterson, Laci's husband and Conner's father, has been charged with not one, but two murders, because California like many states has a fetal homicide law. The pro-abortionists are not happy about this case.
If the Congress passes the Unborn Victims of Violence Act, federal law will declare that the killing of an unborn child through an act of violence is murder -- the killing of a person. Thus while Laci and Conner's Law is not about abortion -- in fact, it specifically excludes abortion -- the bill is on a collision course with the abortionists. In principle, pro-choicers simply refuse to grant any legal status to the unborn.
They worry that the so-called "right to abortion" is being eroded. And they're right. It's eroding because abortion rests on an untenable notion that the unborn child is not a person and doesn't deserve protection.
But that, you see, runs counter to what most Americans believe about the murder of Conner Peterson. Though not yet born, he was murdered. And there ought to be a law. Even when they are still in the womb, children have a right to protection.
Similarly, the unborn child in Florida has a right to protection as well. Governor Jeb Bush and Secretary of Children and Families Jerry Regier deserve a hearty round of applause for seeking to protect both mother and child.
As Ken Connor of Family Research Council wrote in a recent ORLANDO SENTINEL op-ed, Bush and Regier "are simply seeking to help those whose interests would go unrepresented. They seek to help the helpless. That's a cause around which we can all rally."
Dear Howdy, It is no longer enough to be smart -- all the technological tools in the world add meaning and value only if they enhance our core values, the deepest part of our heart. Acquiring knowledge is no guarantee of practical, useful application. Wisdom implies a mature integration of appropriate knowledge, a seasoned ability to filter the inessential from the essential. You are GREAT! Thanks for comment!
