    Message 1 of 1 , Jan 5, 2004

                           Welcome to the E-Mail Newspaper 
      'Thought & Humor'
                                                                     by Howdy

      UNC grad placed the following ad in the paper:

      "WANTED:  250 acres in Alaska to lease between
      November and March.  Want to raise frozen vegetables."


      1) All that I see, is all that I want
         Yet what I see is nothing I need
          I am pleased with nothing, and so seek I must do
          Until my desire is quenched, I'll never be through.
                      What am I?  

      2) I am as light as a bird and as lovely flower.
            I sometime last from year to year,
            and sometime but an hour.
            I stop the swiftest railroad train,
            I break the strongest tree
            but yet I am afraid of fire.
            Children play with me.
                         What am I?

      3) I dig out tiny caves, and store gold and silver
          in them. I also build bridges of silver and make
          crowns of gold. They are the smallest you could
          imagine. Sooner or later everybody needs my
          help, yet many people are afraid to let me help them.

                     Who am I?

      4)  Over on the hill there is a little green house.
      Inside the green house there is a little white house.
      Inside the little white house there is a little red house.
      Inside the little red house there are a lot of little babies.
                            What is it?

      5) To some I can hold treasure,
                To others most displeasure.
                I am always near you,
                Yet always far.
                I am done when I begin,
                And begin when I end. 
                     What am I? 

      6) If you have it you want to share it. If you share it you won't
      have it. What is it?

      warned. Preconceived ideas and biases could be endangered.
      A unique blend of the jocular with provocative rumination is just

          Even French students can do it...



      Two hunters who were UNC* grads were dragging their
      dead deer back to their car.
      Another hunter approached pulling his along too.  "Hey,
      I don't want to tell you how to do something...  but I
      can tell you that it's much easier if you drag the deer
      in the other direction.  Then the antlers won't dig into
      the ground."
      After the third hunter left, the two UNC grads decided
      to try it.
      A little while later one hunter said to the other, "You know,
      that guy was right.  This is a lot easier!"
      "Yeah," the other added, "but we're getting farther away from
      the truck...."
      *UNC is the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

      B.A. A.H.F.(Advanced Hamburger Flipping), A.P.E., B.R.C.

      for sons/daughters of local Chapel Still politicians that were
      unable to qualify for the more prestigious institutions of higher
      learning such as Duke, Wake Forest, and N.C. State.

      Hello Howdy,

      I appreciate your web evangelism. What a response
      you seem to get from your emails.  Praise God.

      Take care,

      That's fantastic!   You are obvious a big part in the

      I don’t know how I even got subscribed to your list.
      Usually I get subscribed to something and just end up
      getting’ peeved b/c I don’t know how I got subscribed
      and end up unsubscribing.

      However, call it divine intervention, this happens to come
      at a time in my life where my faith is growing stronger and
      in return Becoming more and more fuzzy.  But isn’t that the
      way it’s supposed to happen? It only makes it stronger, and
      what is doubt but faith seeking a deeper understanding?  But
      however I got subscribed to your list…I like it.  I like the
      challenges and answers it gives.

      As Christians, we shouldn’t be completely willing to just take
      EVERYTHING on blind faith…or at least searching for answers.
      Even if that means coming up with none.  And I’m always glad
      when someone else questions me or my faith…it only makes me
      In it.

      Dear Howdy,

      Thank you so much for the newsletter you
      send out - it's hilarious. I'm a missionary in Poland and
      don't have access to much Enlgish material -
      especialy much English humor.  So, thankyou for the laughs -
      it's one of the things that make it possible to do what I do for our Lord.

      In His Embrace,


      Dear Howdy,
      I am in my new job in DC.  Please add me to T&H (again). 
      I sure missed it during the move.



      Hello Howdy, 

       my good man, I get awful buloxed when
      it comes to this email thing. But, boy, oh, boy, I sure
      do enjoy howdy and all its info.  I am amazed that you
      have the time to compile and send what you compile and send.

      God bless you.  And always remember, use enough gun!

                Somewhere on cable or late night TV, you might run into my old hero.
      He's a masked man who rides on a white horse, who shoots silver bullets and
      always brings in the bad guys. Every episode ends with someone asking, "Who
      was that Masked Man?" And as the exciting William Tell Overture crescendos
      in the background, someone will say, "It's the Lone Ranger!" I'm getting all
      emotional here. Now there was one other thing about the Lone Ranger. He
      had a faithful sidekick, that Indian man in buckskins, Tonto. He's the one who
      got famous calling the Lone Ranger "Kemo Sabe." I never did know what that
      meant. Maybe the Lone Ranger didn't know either. Maybe that's a good thing.
      But there is one thing about the Lone Ranger that always seemed a little
      hard to understanding - even the Lone Ranger wasn't alone.

      Actually, there were never meant to be any Lone Rangers. Let's go all
      the way back to the original Lone Ranger - Adam, the first man God ever
      created. As the Creation saga unfolds in Genesis 1, the Bible uses a phrase
      repeatedly to describe how God felt about what He had been created each
      day - "And God saw that it was good." Genesis 1:31 says, "God saw all that
      He had made, and it was very good."

              There was, in fact, only one thing in Paradise that God said was not
      good. Our word for today from the Word of God, Genesis 2:18, tells us
      what it was. "The Lord God said, 'It is not good for the man to be alone.
      I will make a helper suitable for him.'" And along comes Eve, and the
      rest is history.

      But the point is really important - none of us is created to be
      alone. God says it's not good. But right now, you may be at a point where
      you're feeling pretty alone. I want you to think about this for a moment -
      extended loneliness is often a choice you make. See, all too often, we're
      lonely because we make choices that are cutting us off from people. Like
      withdrawing because you're wounded, going into self-pity mode, insisting
      that it can only be a certain person or persons who you will allow to answer
      your loneliness.

              It's not good for you to be alone. So instead of waiting for
      something or someone magical to come in and end your loneliness, would
      you take action to break out of Lonely Island. God will give you the strength,
      but you have to take the step.

              You may need to open up those feelings you've been burying, even
      if showing your feelings isn't usually your style. You're a prisoner of
      yourself. You have to do what you may not feel like doing, and that's to
      reach out to people when you feel like crawling into your cave. Maybe it's
      time to broaden your world, to risk moving beyond the small circle you've
      been depending on to meet all your needs. There could be a broken
      relationship you have to start to restore. Look for some people who need
      your love and attention. Your community is full of lonely people who need
      you. And treat people as you would like to be treated, not necessarily the
      way people have treated you. Remember, that's the Golden Rule.

              Don't allow yourself to remain alone. Give yourself completely to
      the Savior who says, "I will never leave you or forsake you" (Hebrews 13:5).
      And then, with your trembling hand firmly holding His strong hand, venture
      out of the cave called Loneliness into the light called Loving Others.
      Remember, even the Lone Ranger wasn't alone. And your Lord never
      meant for you to be either.                          Ron Hutchcraft
