ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
February 29th, 2008
Joy is prayer—Joy is strength—Joy is love—
Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
Remember that remarkable achievements begin as thoughts
When you aim for perfection, you discover it's a moving target.
HAPPY FRIDAY !!
AND HAPPY LEAP DAY !
It’s the last day of February and then we’ll be celebrating the month of March. We’ll be finding out tomorrow if March will come in like a lamb or a lion. If it’s like a lamb the end of March will go out like a lion, If it’s a lion the end of March will go out like a lamb. That’s what they say anyway.
With March being such a changeable month, in which we can see warm spring-like temperatures or late-season snowstorms, you can understand how this saying might hold true in some instances. We can only hope that if March starts off cold and stormy it will end warm and sunny, but the key word is hope.
Have a great day all ! Another wonderful one on the Way !
Please pray for God's protection of our troops and HIS wisdom for their commanders.
Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. I ask this in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
God, I thank You for today, for the ways You will bless me, and for the ways that I will serve others in Your name
I am in the hands of God, and in God’s time all things will be made well.
TODAY IS…LEAP DAY
The length of an actual year is about 365.24219 days; most yearly calendars have just 365. Without leap days (such as February 29, 2008) added to the calendar every few years, the calendar would be off by 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 45 seconds each year. A year is a leap year if it is divisible by 4, but century years are not leap years unless they are divisible by 400. Century leap years include 1600, 2000, and 2400. The longest time possible between leap years is eight years, such as will occur between 2096 and 2104
46 B.C.: The Romans created the first Leap Year by adding a day to their calendar.
1288: A law in Scotland made it illegal for a man to refuse to marry a woman who proposed on Leap Year Day, the only day women could propose marriage.
A Leap Year Ditty to Remember It By
Thirty days hath September, April, June and November;
All the rest have thirty-one
Save February, she alone
Hath eight days and a score
Til leap year gives her one day more
fallible \FAL-uh-bul\, adjective:
1. Liable to make a mistake.
2. Liable to be inaccurate or erroneous
Fallible derives from Medieval Latin fallibilis, from Latin fallere, "to deceive." It is related to fail, false (from falsum, the past participle of fallere), fallacy ("a false notion"), fault (from Old French falte, from fallere), and faucet (from Old Provençal falsar, "to falsify, to create a fault in, to bore through," from fallere
There is no other commandment greater than these
The scribes were the learned interpreters of the Law of Moses. They expanded the Ten Commandments given to Moses into 613 greater and lesser rules and regulations. One scribe recognized Jesus' skill as a teacher, and asked him which one of the Mosaic Laws was the greatest. Jesus recognized the scribe's sincere search for truth.
Jesus summed up the entire Law with two basic decrees that he saw as inseparable. They were the laws upon which all the other commandments were based: to love God with one's entire being, and to love one's neighbor as oneself.
The scribe declared that the love of God and love of neighbor was worth more than any religious acts that one could perform. Because the scribe understood this principle, he moved a step closer to God's reign
