      If you have any encouragement from
      being united with Christ, if any comfort
      from his love, if any fellowship with the
      Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion,
      then make my joy complete by being like-
      minded, having the same love, being
      one in spirit and purpose. Philippians 2

      Written to the church in Philippi.

      Riddles For 2.3.5

      1) I am something that nothing is, but yet I have a name.
      I am sometimes tall and sometimes short.
      I join your talks; I join your sport,
      And I play in every game.
      What am I?

      2) If you mulitply all the numbers on the telephone, what
      is the answer?

      3) My first is in fish but not in snail
      My second is in rabbit but not in tail
      My third is in up but not in down
      My fourth is in tiara but not in crown
      My fifth is in tree you plainly see
      My whole a food for you and me.
      What Am I?

      4) A Train enters a tunnel at 7 o'clock, another train enters
      the exact same tunnel, also at 7 o'clock on the same day.
      The tunnel only has one track, and no other means for the
      trains to pass, around, over, or under. However both trains
      made it to the other end of the tunnel untouched. How could
      this be?

      Moth Balls

      Allison, a UNC grad, went into a hardware
      store and bought a box of mothballs. The
      next day she returned again and purchased
      a second box.

      When she came back a third time, the sales-
      person's curiosity got the best of him and he says,

      "You sure must have a lot of moths in your
      house, lady! That's the 3rd large box you're buying."

      "Oh, I do," says Allison. "And I can't take
      it anymore. I've been throwing these little
      balls at them for two days and I haven't hit
      a single one yet!"


      The Fly & The Clock

      Q. Why did the fly head for the alarm clock?

      A. He wanted to land on time.

      Children's Questions

      The image “http://www.mauigateway.com/~kenika/photo/images/photos/2251_01.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

      I often wonder if in the spirit of the information
      age, we boast in the promise of endless and

      instant answers, failing to notice that we are
      too soon interrupting questions with explanation.
      Perhaps an abundance of answers has stifled

      our teens' ability to probe deeply the truths
      and mysteries of faith. We seldom look for
      opportunities to practice talking about the
      things we cease to wonder at. Our children
      will ask; in our answers may we not

      interrupt their inquisitive sense of awe.

      Getting To Know You

      This Week's Issue Is Packed With:
      1) Great Humor
      2) Thought
      3) Riddles
      4) Word Puzzles
      5) Letters                
      6) Trivia                 
      7) Much More       
      If you would like to write Howdy (he reads all of them),
      send a nice or fussy e-mail to the following:
      Dear Howdy
      Thank you for your effort in creating this newsletter.  I can tell that
      a lot of work goes into it.  However I do not have the time to read such
      a large email. 
      Thank You,
      Jason GMU 
      Just what IS the "scientific evidence for creation"?

      Thanks, Ron

      Hey Ron,

      There's a bunch but there's none for the evolution
      crowd. Check out this link:


      It will tell you about some PhD types  that
      specialize in that debate.

      Your Friend,


      I did not sign up for this newsletter.   After spending some time reading it,
      I noticed that it is very religious in nature, and i am not.  Please remove
      me from the list.  thank you.Kelly (DEPAUW U.)

      Hey Kelly,

      Neither am I! Religion is man's attempt to reach God while Christianity
      is God's attempt to reach men & women. How's He doing as far as
      your life is concerned. He reached me when I was 8.

      Your Friend,


      I would like to unsubscribe from this email. I never asked to receive
      it and I am outraged at your position on CEDAW (I am very adamantly
      for it.) Oh and don't send me things regarding Jesus. I am also very
      opposed to proselytizing. Thank you.Eric (ferris.edu)

      Hey Eric,

      Thanks for writing. Why is it proselytizing if one talks about Jesus
      but not Allah, Buddha, or Joseph Smith. Why do movies, TV shows,
      and folks in general take Jesus name in vain but not Allah, Buddha, or
      Joseph Smith? Perhaps that's their way of demonstrating that He's God!!!

      Your Devoted Friend,

      Please note that our policy allows for us to receive threats
      on alternate Tuesdays when the Moon is waning only...

      Dear Howdy, I am a second year law student at a Florida public law school. I often
      visit Crosswalk.com, and apparantly on one of my most recent visits, I
      subscribed to Howdy. Well, our Father in Heaven knows exactly what we
      need. I check my email every morning, and I cannot not tell you how
      delighted I was today to find Howdy's awesome newsletter.  I was rushed
      this morning, so regretfully, I did not get a chance to read my Word.
      But Howdy has filled that void for me today, and I feel sooooooo much
      better equipped to deal with the challanges I am to face. What an
      awesome blessing! The newletter is inspiritng, insightful, informative,
      and thought-provoking. Thank God for all you that work to put this
      newletter together and distribute it to desperately needy folks like me.
      I must not be selfish; I must forward!!! :)))
      God bless!
      C. (FSU)
      Hi Howdy:  Love your jokes, inspiration and facts!  You may have heard this
      one: Question-- How can you tell if a U.N.C. (or your favorite U) freshman
      has been using your word processor?  Answer -- there's white-out on the
      screen.  Keep up the good work! Alan (dvc.edu)
       Dear Howdy,
      Did Anyone ever tell you,
      Just how special You are?
      The light that You emit
      Might even light a star?
      Did Anyone ever tell You
      How important You make Others feel?
      Somebody out there is smiling
      About Love that is so real?
      Did Anyone ever tell You
      Many times, when They were sad,
      Your e-mail made Them smile a bit
      In fact It made them glad?
      For the time You spend sending things
      And sharing whatever You find,
      There are no words to thank You
      But Somebody thinks You're fine.
      Did Anyone ever tell You
      Just how much They love You?
      Well,  My Dearest "Online"  Friend,
      Today I am telling YOU!
      Have a blessed day, my special online friend!
