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 2.3.51) 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
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!"
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.

Wednesday, February 02, 2005===============This Week's Issue Is Packed With:1) Great Humor2) Thought3) Riddles4) Word Puzzles5) Letters6) Trivia7) Much MoreIf you would like to write Howdy (he reads all of them),send a nice or fussy e-mail to the following:VARIANCE, DISPARAGE, & EXECRATE CORRESPONDENCE: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 GMUJust what IS the "scientific evidence for creation"?
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.
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.)
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.
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,
HowdyPlease note that our policy allows for us to receive threatson alternate Tuesdays when the Moon is waning only...SYMPATHETIC , AMIABLE & ENCHANTING CORRESPONDENCE: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!!! :)))
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?
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!
