their clubhouse, which was built about 100
years ago, remodeled.

cause of contributions from businesses, such as
Community South Credit Uniion, PeoplesSouth

BANK from page Al
ey to insurers, but it's unclear if Pro-
tective Life would have been deemed
""too big to fail."
"The issues that they're worried
About are systemic risks," said.Steve
Turner, managing director with No-
vantas, a financial consulting firm.
"Could the insurance companies end
up in a situation where they are unable
to fund themselves, or they start to.see
their policy holders withdraw?"
Turner was skeptical of the plan to
Extend aid to insurers, as well as banks.
"The treasury has a finite number
'of tools to help ... one would question
whether supporting insurance compa-
nies right now is critical and whether
or not they might be better off holding
on to the tools that they have available,
Sa remaining $35 billion in TARP funds,
until there's a need. And certainly Pro-
tective Life doesn't fall into the same
category as a Metlife or Prudential."
The oldest state-chartered bank
in Florida, Bank of Bonifay, lost $3.6'
million in 2008 after losing more than
$2.6 million in 2007. Its capital levels
are "adequate," according toifederal
guidelines, but adequate is not neces-
sarily a good thing.
The bank's risk-based capital ratio,
the percentage of easj-to-access assets
like cash that the bank has on hand to
S cover any potential losses, stood at 9.57
Percent at theend of 2008, according
to the Federal Deposit Insurance Cor-
poration. Regulators begin to monitor
a bank's practices more closely when
That ratio falls below 10 percent.,
Mike Medley, chairman of the board
.for the Bank of Bonifay. said in.March
the bank had a backup plan to draw
capitalfrom investors. Medley was not
available to talk last week. Protective
SLife spokeswoman Eva Robertson did
not return several phone calls.
Like most struggling banks inthe
PPaihandle, the Bank of Bonifay was
hit hard by the crashing real estate
market. Thebank, which has $230 mil-
lion in assets, had $13,960,000 in non-
accrual loans, defaulted loans which
Likely will not be paid back, and an-
other $14,048;000 in non-current loans,
Which are 90 or more days past due at
the end of 2008.
The non-accrual number is a func-
tion of flagging real estate prices; the
bank had $267,000 in those bad loans
after 005, then $589,000 after 2006 and
$8,428,000 after 2007.
SThe bank's health should come into
more focus in the near future when
first quiiarter call reports are released
by the FDIC.

REMODELING from page Al

Sent to the Chipley Banner that in-
vited all women who were residents
of Chipley and who were determined
to help in their community to join to-
gether to create the Chipley Woman's
Club. ,
The School Improvement Associa-
tion became the branch known as the
Education Department,, and with 55
founding members, five more depart-
ments were created: civics, public"
health, good roads, philanthropy and
the arts.
SThe club since then has had 58
presidents, including the present
president Liz Corbin. Marjorie San-
garee, international affairs coordi-
nator, was able to register the- club
in the National Register of Historic

The Woman's Club, 88 years later,
is considered the oldest civic club in
the history of Chipley.
The Woman's Club raises approxi-
mately $2,OOQ a year in charitable:
donations for Friends of the Library,,:
Penmanship Award, Project Gradu-
ation, D.A.R.E., Special Olympics;
Hacienda Girls' Ranch, Literacy'
Program, Habitat for Humanity and
Washington County Youth Fair to just'
name a few.
"There has been a lot of hard work
put into remodeling the clubhouse to
make it look as good as it does now,"
said Mitchell. "We are completely
self maintained by all the money we
receive for functions and through'
membership, dues and community
projects, such as the Tour of Homes

and renting out the clubhouse for
various events."
The new sign out front was the
collective effort of Walls, .Kathleen
Rogers and Mitchell.
"We are very proud of how all of
our hard work and efforts have paid
off," said Mitchell. "We look forward
to our next meeting on the second
Wednesday in May at noon."
The clubhouse is located on Fifth
Street in Chipley and can accommo-
date 80 people.
"The kitchen was also renovated
and is fully functional," she said. "For
anyone vho is interested in renting
the clubhouse, it is $100 per event."

A little more than summer reading?

Used to be that
literature, especially
books, were a rare
commodity. Then
came the Gutenberg

toward the mass
Production of books.
And now books are :,ONE

(sad to say) sub genius.
You can buy anything
from Home Care for Kittens
to Idiot's Guide to Solitaire.
Most bookstores also have


sections on Texas
(oir your home
state), garden-
S ing, cooking, sci-fi,
magazines. Why
don't these books
sell in the volumes
that Cujo's untamed
VORD soil does?
Hollinger Then I got the
answer. I heard it on
Country Music Tele-
vision. Really profound stuff.
The video for Johnny Cash's
remake of Nine Inch Nails's
song "Hurt" came on. The
first line of the song is, "I

hurt myself today, to see if I
still feel." That's it, isn't it?
That's why we buy horror,
romance and touchy stories.
In a way less dramatic than
Nine Inch Nails, we want to
make sure that we still feel.
Horror stories scare us.
Our senses tingle; we sweat.
Our imaginations create in-
credible monsters. We want
to warn the characters what
will transpire if they go look-
ing for trouble. We're afraid
of what is going to happen
next in the story.

kindle our love fire. We
cheer for the heroine's ITrue
Love as he battle's for her
affection. We hate the man
who steals their love. And
we want to tell the heroine
not to lose hope. We love a
happy ending.
Feeling through books
like these is the safe way to
feel. The book is our safety
net; it's our ticket to emo-
tion without experience.
We know that however
scared we might get, it isn't
happening t6 us, And if we
get too frightened, we turn

the page or close the book
The couple in the romance
novel will always be perfect.
That's safety too. We don't
worry about them breaking
up or having an affair. We
can read the story twenty
times and be safe in perfect
love. Safety also comes in
knowing that other people
have been through rough
times and came out all right.
Those touchy-feely stories
give us encouragement to
face our own problems.
They say that answering
one question only opens the

door for more questions.
This time, they are right.
I might know wiy certain

To the Editor:
I am writing in response
to the article in the April 1
edition, "Man nets 6-foot
water moccasin." After
reading the article, apd
with snakes being so active
this time of year, I thought I
would take this opportunity
to write a bit on the subject.
Snakes in or around
bodies of water are often
. identified, as water
iioccasins also known
as the cottonmouth
or scientifically as
Agkistrodon Piscivorous,,
due to that single fact. In
reality, the fact is that all
snacks can and will venture
near and into the water,
seeing as how all snakes
are adept swimmers:
A good example is the
Florida pine snake, being
held up in the article photo
is scientifically known as
Pituophis Melanoeucus.
Though large (records
up to 90 inches) and very
intimidating with displays
of hissing and striking into
the air, they are completely
harmlessto humans. They
do however consume large
numbers of mice and rats.
In Florida they enjoy a
minimal legal protection.
Learning to identify our
different native species
can be a great asset
especially for our,curious'
and outgoing younger
ones. Field guides can be
excellent tools. Peterson's
Field Guide to Reptiles and
Amphibians of the Eastern/
Central United States is
highly recommended..
Until you have the
skills to positively identify
the snake, the best and
safest thing to do is, leave
it alone.

bestowed on our family.
On that eventful
Saturday I had gone to
town for a short time and
returned to find our home
surrounded by water and
the water creeping up
the steps to our doors.

SWe quickly started taking
anything we could out to
the car and tried to call
family for help almost
instantly people seemed to
appear from off the streets
to help us in getting our,
belongings out. Many of
these people were just
passing by they didn't even
know who it was they were
helping; they just saw a
need and stepped up to
the plate to help. They
have restored any lack of
faith we may have had in
mankind by their totally
selfless acts.
We would like to
personally thank Coy
Mixon and his family for
their invaluable assistance
in the moving and in finding
so many people to help us
out. Thank you Mom, for
all you did to get us help
and something to haul
our belonging in. Thank
you Michelle, for listening
to God for direction that
opened the door to our new
home. Thank you Fred,

medical problems. Thank

might cause to themselves;
Phillip Music for providing
us with a livestock trailer;,
Mr. Shiver for driving
it to us; Mr. Watson for
his truck and trailer and
for Charles Watson for
helping us so much with he

Dear Editor,
On March 6 and 7 the
chorus and drama from
Holmes County High
School presented "A .
Night on Broadway." fihis
talented group of kids did
an outstanding job. I look
forward to the play "Into
the Woods" in May.
On March 21 the Street
Festival in Bonifay was.
a huge success. Thank
you to Gail Woodham and
all the committee who
planned and worked so
hard to bring this festival
together. Bonifay needed
something that could be
enjoyed by everyone. The
antique car show, the craft
vendors, the food and all
the entertainment were
top notch. I am glad they
are planning this to be an
annual event.
On March 25 there
was a mock wreck held
at Holmes County High
School. Travis Cook and all
the people who had a part,
in this did an outstanding
job. The kids from the
HCHS drama department
who were in the wreck,
,the firedepartment, the
police, the EMTs, even the '
funeral home who picked
up the casualty all came
together to make it all so
: real. Several people shed a
few tears.
Thank you to all
these groups for the
entertainment, fun, and
even for the realistic look at
what drinkingand driving
can do.
Linda Ward

To the Editor:
Since retirement my
morning routine has been
coffee and the morning
newspaper. This now a
days is not a very joyful
way to start the day. Words
like fatalities, arrested,
crime, jobless, economy,
protests, etc. monopolize
page after page. The part
that concerns me the most
about this is the number
of these words that applies
to today's young people,
the supposed leaders
of tomorrow. With the
exception of the Sports

section and occasional
articles from the schools
it seems that everything
reported on the young is
negative. I know there are
youngsters out there doing
good things and I would
like to call your attention
to one such group.
The United States
Naval Sea Cadets Corp
is composed of young
ladies and gentleinen
between the ages of eleven
and eighteen residing
throughout the Florida
Panhandle. They devote
innumerable hours to
this organization, which
instills values, direction;
citizenship, patriotism, and
morals and not only pride
to their parents, but most
importantly to themselves.
SThis organization stresses
education and the need
of goals for the future.
As more have become
aware of this program
the membership has
grown each year and
the graduates have all
joined the military or been
excellent candidates for
higher learning at college
or university.
SAs the result of their
impressive performance
at public events, drills,
training schools, and
advancement within the
Corp they have garnered
recognition and numerous
awards both individually
and as a group. They
are required to maintain
school grades to standard,
attend a weekend drill
monthly, and complete
correspondence courses.
Their performance have
been such that they have
earned the respect and
support of the Locdl
Naval Support Activity
and are granted use of
Base Facilities for much
of their training. This
availability has been
extended to various
other military facilities
through out the South
'Eastern States. The
training conducted by
the Panhandle group is of
such high quality that it
is coveted by Sea Cadets
as far away as the New
England States and the
West Coast.
The Panhandle group
is fortunate to have
dedicated, motivated
and knowledgeable adult
leadership in John Duncan
and his assistants. They
contribute generously of
their personal time and
resources to make this
effort a success.
This training is costly
and they have made
a policy of not turning
away any deserving
youngster-by subsidizing
the costs of those from
low income and single
parent families. This
has been accomplished
by donations from
different organizations
and personal gifts. If you
have a child or grandchild
who could benefit by
joining this group or would
like o contribute you

VES students meet Alaskan native

VERNON Second grade students
at Vernon Elementary School re-
cently read a story about Alaska.
While it was extremely interesting
to learn about the frontier state, it
was even more interesting for the
children to meet someone who origi-
nated from there. Kathleen Wicker,
a teacher of the visually impaired at
Vernon Elementary, was invited by
the second grade to present some,
memoirs from when she lived in
This presentation brought their

story to life; students were able to
get a hands-on experience with these
possessions and were able to see
what fellow Americans across the
continent use and see on a daily ba-
sis. Some of these objects included
a miniature log cabin portraying the.
type of homes in which many Alas-
kans live. Wicker also shared items
that she found along trails beside her
home in the town of Wasilla. These
findings included a moose antler, an
animal pelt (or fur) and the biggest
hit, a snow-dog's lost boot.

The presentation and the story
gave the students a huge insight on
the fact that other's can live so dif-
ferently than themselves, however,
they still share many of the same
experiences such as school, church
and home life and another similarity,
others almost always are excited to
enlighten more people their culture
and background.
The VES second-grade students
and teachers appreciate Mrs. Wicker
sharing her Alaskan treasures and

Washington County News I A9

PHOTOS COURTESY OF VERNON I.The Heart of Old Washington County londa
Two views of Vernon's present day bridge spanning historic Holmes Creek and soon' to be replaced.

City prepares for Vernon Bridge Festival

The Vernon Bridge Festival
2009 is set for Saturday, May 30.
The site for the planned mammoth
festival will be staged in what
remains of downtown Vernon. The
areas where buildings have been
removed, making way for new road
construction, have been cleared and
made available for the enormous
-county wide merriment.
The Vernon Historical Society
with president, Angia Hinson Morris
at the helm, is the main organization
actually spearheading the day long
exciting activities.
At a regularly scheduled
meeting of the Vernon Historical
Society on March 25, the proposed
gigantic celebration showed signs
of immediately gaining momentum.
Skeleton committees, which only had
been appointed one month earlier,
began making positive reports which
indicates solid progress and new
interest is being shown daily.
After considerable discussion
at the meeting, the
S slogan of" Bridging
the Past to Our
Future" was agreed
upon as the creed for
what could become
one of the county's
largest gala events.
PERRY'S County Historical
PRATTLE Society President
Perry Wells Dorothy Odom
has volunteered
the service of the members of
that organization to participate
and support the Vernon program.
Churches, civic clubs, schools and
other organizations are coming
forward already desiring to be a part
of the happenings.
The brain child for such a festival
stems from a similar occasion held
70 years ago on May 26, 1939, when
the current bridge, spanning Holmes
Creek at Vernon, was officially
dedicated as the Col. Lonnie W
Weeks bridge. This was done after
Action by the Florida legislature
on May 25,1939, determined, by
Concurrent Resolution No. 11, that
the structure should be named
Weeks Bridge in honor ofCol.-Lonnie
W Weeks. Earlier action on March
2, 1939, had dedicated the structure'
as the Archie G. McQuagge Bridge.
Both McQuagge and Weeks had
been involved in Washington County
political offices.
The massive crowd attending
the 1939 free fish fry, complete with
speeches from state dignitaries,
was highly acclaimed as being the
second largest gathering for an
"event in Vernon. Still holding the
No. 1 place for record attendance at
a Vernon event was the last public
hanging in town, which took place
in 1901. Historic recordings of the
controversial two names for the
present bridge plus details of the
enormity of the 1939 dedicatory
festivities can be read in the
Heritage of Washington County Book
of 2006 and other publications.
At the April meeting of the
S Vernon High School Alumni

Luncheon, Jerry Brock, 911
coordinator for Washington County,
spoke to,the group concerning
plans for the upcoming May 30
extravaganza. When asked for
a show of hahds of those who
attended the event of 70 years
ago, the following responded: Ollie
Dorch Brock, Fannie Lou Simmons
Hightower, Lucille Marshall Brackin,
Ruth Bruner Roche, Paula Simmons
Dalton and EdnaElliott Laney. Odell
Ward has reported that he and his
mother, Cora Ward, drove from Shell
Landing to Vernon for the big day.
Irene Bruner Sherling joined her
sister, Ruth, in selling home made
ice cream at the event. Remember
the reported sales chant? "Getyour
ice cream from Irene!"
Plans are shaping up for a repeat
of the well remembered 1939 Free
Fish Fry. H.L. Brown, and others are
coordinating the preparation and
serving of the delectable fish, along
with all the trimmings. H.L. quotes
Theodore Simmons as saying "on
one Vernon Fish Fry I cooked two
pickup truck loads of mullet, and
they were gone as fast as I cooked
them." Theodore indicated he is
ready to do it again May 30.
Vendors for food, arts and
crafts, yard sales and booths for
informational type materials, will
be made available to visitors who
want to come in and set up shop for
the historic day. H.L. Brown is the
person to contact for reserving your
space. His telephone number is 850-
535-2241. It is not too late, nor too
early, to get your space assured for
the big day which has been labeled
by Dale Taylor as party time, urging
every one to "let's have a big blow
out" in Vernon on the appointed day.
\ The promoters welcome -

volunteers to join in the work force
in carrying out this undertaking.
"This is more than a city thing, it's
a county, or even bigger" concludes
one committee member. Businesses
with signs and banners and want
to advertise at a nominal fee, are
invited to make contact for details.
"Two to three thousand eyes
could well view this inexpensive
Advertising" concludes one promoter.
Dale Taylor, Theodore Simmons,
Bob Wells, Jerry Brock and many
others are familiar names that are
expected to be prime movers in
seeing that the program is carried
out appropriately.
The Vernon City Council and the
Washington County Board of County
Commissioner are already on board
as supporters with members of both
bodies standing ready to offer the
needed assistance for the landmark
Perry Wells and Lyndal Waller
have been designated as the two-
person entertainment committee.
At least three stages for musical,
and other type of entertainment, is
being discussed as an approach to
assure that all those in.attendance
can find their musical preference.
The "prattler" invites your
telephone calls at 850 638-1016
should you want to participate in the
entertainment for the day. Lyndal
Waller can be reached at her office
in the Courthouse Annex on South
Mark your calendars now for
participation in what could well
become Vernon's masterpiece in
bringing in throngs of people to
celebrate. Remember the special
slogan for the occasion, "Bridging
the Past to Our Future"
See you all next week.

Sikora signed a football scholarship
to join the Bethel Wildcats'of.McKenzie,

kicker, an outstanding student and an all-

host Cow


CHIPELY Chipley High
School is planning a Cow
Chip Festival at 10 a.m. Sat-
urday, Sept. 26, at new CHS
Sports Fields.
Cow Chip Bingo will pit
your luck against the gas-
tronomical actions of a cow
and her ability to do "what
comes naturally." A 50 x 50
yard playing area will be
divided into squares. Each
square represents a "land
deed parcel" that can be pur-
chased for $5 each. Checks
should be made payable to
Chipley High School.
At noon Sept. 26, the
c6ws will be brought onto
the field and the first three
"chips" will be recorded
,and measured by the Cow
Chip Judges. They will
then locate the land deed
parcels and determine the
winners. First chip wins
$250; second chip wins $500
and the third chip, wins.
$1,000. Actual amounts will
be based on the percentage
of total parcels sold.
Your "deed" to a Cow
Chip Bingo square confers
no actual rights of owner-
ship to the land. It is only
valid on the day .of the
event for the duration of
the game.
Other planned events
include Kiss the Cow, Cow
Chip Tossing, hay rides for
the kids, 5K "Cow Trot", Jail
and Bail, barbeque, baked
goods and concessions.

Excelling Reader at VES reaches reading goal
VERNON David Church, Vernon
Elementary third grade student, has
.reachedcan Accelerated Reader
milestone for the second year. He hds
been reading and testing on books all-
school year and within the past eight
months, has earned over 250 AR points.
This is a hard task to accomplish since
each book may only be worth .5 to 5
points each. Gail Seaboch, librarian
at Vernon Elementary School, said that
David accomplished this same task as
." a first grader and she hopes that he not
. only keeps up the tradition for the many
school 'years to come, but that he also
continues his love for reading throughout
his entire lifetime.
S. Church's name will be place on
the VES Library Accelerated Reader
plaque along with others who have
accomplished reading goals.

Free to all

A famous department store advertises
its plan for giving away $1,000. A certificate
appears in the newspaper stating on the
following Monday they would sound a
trumpet at a particular moment of the
management's choosing, and
all who were in the store who
also possessed a copy of the
certificate would be given
$1,000. The certificate would
serve the store's assurance
this plan would be fulfilled.
What would you do if this
were real?
LET YOOR Having "heard" their
LIGHT SHINE offer would you go?, Having
Wes Webb "believed" would you take
the certificate with you and
obey all.the instructions?
This would be the same as doing what Paul
instructed us to do in Ephesiaris 1:13 what
he wrote, "In whom ye also trusted, after
that ye heard the w6rd of truth, the gospel
of your salvation: irrwhom also after that ye
believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit
of promise."
Well the next question is; would the $1,000
be earned by meritorious "works"? Or be
given by "grace"? The same way that this
$1,000 would be given to you, God also gives'
us eternal life. We have not'earned it, but God
has given it to us as we are told in Ephesians
2:8-10 which says, "For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that not of yourselves: it
is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man
should boast. For we are his workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus unto good works,
which God hath before ordained that we
should walk in them." .
I also would like toask the'questiod; was,
the plan chosen, or were specific individuals
"elected," "predestined," or "chosen" by
the management? In other words, did the
individuals whocollected the money receive it
because they were specifically chosen before
the conditions were advertised, or were they
"the elect" who received the reward because
they complied with the conditions (plan),
which had been "chosen"? According to Gods
plan we all have been given the opportunity,
but only those who follow God's plan will be
S In Ephesians 1:3-14 Paul writes, "Blessed
be the God'and Father of our Lord Jesus
Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual
blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
According as he hath chosen us in him before
the foundation of the world, that we should
be holy and without blame before him in love:
Having predestinated us unto the adoption of
children by Jesus Christ to himself, according
to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise
of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath
made us accepted in the beloved. In whom
we have redemption through his blood,the
forgiveness of sins, according to the riches
of his grace; Wherein he hath abounded
toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
Having made known unto us the mystery
of his will, according to his good pleasure
Which he hath purposed in himself: That
in the dispensation of the fullness of times
he might gather together in one all things
in Christ, both which are in heaven, and
which are on earth; even in him: In whom
also we have obtained an inheritance, being
predestinated according to the purpose of
him who worketh all things after the counsel
of his own will: That we should be to the
praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ..
In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard
the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation:-
in whom also after thatye believed, ye were
sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which
is the earnest of our inheritance until the
redemption of the purchased possession,
unto the praise of his glory."
Would you have any right to claim the
$1,000 if you did not follow the instructions?
Even if you believed (mentally agreed with)
the advertisement would you have a right to
the gift. In Mark 16:16 Jesus said, "He that
believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but
he that believeth not shallbe damned." Belief
is not enough. God demands us to have works
Finally, what if you went to the store with
the certificate in hand but left before the
trumpet sounded? Couldyou still claim the
$1,000? In Hebrews 3:12-14 the writer says,
"Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any
of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing
from the living God. But exhort one another
daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you
be hardened through the deceitfulness of
sin." We always need to remember that we
must remain faithful until death to receive
the prize
The obvious answers to these questions
should help us in understanding God's
scheme of redemption. He is sovereign. 'By
grace He extends salvation to all men. Just
as the store's conditions of reward were
predetermined and could not be altered
by the public; likewise God has chosen the
plan of salvation through Christ. However,
God allows man to be a free moral agent,
and whether we are saved or lost will be
determined by our response of faith.

Don't chase happiness and race past contentment

While leading
or what we call
today, facilitating,
my second group
through the Dave
Ramsey financial l
Peace University"
I heard Dave say FRi
something in the H
lesson on "Buyer T
Beware" that really
caught my attention.
It caught my attention
because every week I meet
people who seem to be
chasing happiness, and
just can't find contentment.
Most seem to think that
happiness begins and
ends with stuff, and more
stuff and even more stuff,
while others are looking for
happiness in a relationship
and thinking that only a
certain person can bring
them happiness.
Dave makes the
statement that we all
need to understand as he
is talking about motives
for buying stuff that is
really profound by saying,
"No amount of stuff is
equal to contentment or


fulfillment". Then
he goes on to say,
"Yes, you can buy
stuff and have
some fun, which is,
good, but you can't
buy happiness".
M THE To get his
EART point across he
m Hall quoted Joe Land,
who he called the
great motivational
speaker He said that
Joe said, "Happiness
is like getting ready to
go to school, you're so
excited you're going to
Kindergarten. You get to
Kindergarten and then
you see the first graders
and think I will really be
happy when I get to the
first grade. Then you get
to the first grade and say
I'd really be happy if I were
cool like the sixth graders
that run the school like a
Then you get to the sixth
grade and look over to the
middle school and go 'Wow!
Sports! Cheerleaders!' and,
changing classes, which
means if you get a bad

teacher, you're not there
long, now that's good!
Then you make it to middle
school and go "I'll be happy
when I get to high school
because then I'll get my
driver's license." Then
somebody's brother comes
home from college and
they say, "Boy, college is
cool, they don't even care
if you don't go to classes."
Then you gefto college
and your net worth is a half
box of No Doze. You hear
yourself saying, "If I could
just get out of college and
meet that special someone
and getmiarried and have
two-point-three kids and a
picket fence."
Then you get out of
college and meet that
special someone and you
have two point three kids
and you go, Gosh I want to
go back to college. I'll be
happy when you get out of
diapers and I don't have to
change diapers anymore.
I'll be happy when the
teenagers are gone. I'll
be happy when they get
married and have little kids

so I can change diapers.
If you're not real careful,
happiness is a bully in the
;schoolyard that continues
to draw the line and
backs up. When you step
across the line he steps
back and draws it again."
Dave closes that session
by saying, "Happiness is
where you are right now.
Claim it for your self. Don't
let stuff get in the equation.
You'll chase it and you'll
never catch it. As the ole
preacher used to say, 'He,
who dies withthe most
toys, is dead!'"
Another great
motivational speaker of
old, by the name of Paul,
told young Timothy how
he could find happiness
in 1 Timothy 6:6-16 as he
shared "Now godliness
with contentment is
great gain. For we
brought nothing into this
world, and it is certain we
can carry nothing out. And
having food and clothing,
with these we shall be
content..But those who
desire to be rich fall into

Temptation and a snare,
and into many foolish
and harmful lusts which
drown men in destruction
and perdition .... flee
these things and pursue
righteousness, godliness,
faith, love, patience,
gentleness. Fight the
good fight of faith, lay
hold on eternal life, to
which you were also
called and have confessed
the good confession in
the presence of many
witnesses" (NKJV). We
must remember God does
love us as His children and
He not only desires good
things forus, but He knows
what is best for us that we .
might achieve great things
and honor for Him..
Dave also quoted Chuck
Swindoll by reminding us
that God answers all the
prayers of His children,
maybe not always the
way and in the fashion we
.thought He would, because
He may answer, "Yes" and
He may answer "No" and
He may answer "Grow."
Which leads me to say,

so often in our search for
happiness we just need
to look around us and
appreciate the blessings
we have and grow up.
You know, if we would just
stop chasing happiness, it
might just catch up with us
and run all over us. "Let
your conduct be without
covetousness; be content
with such things as you
have. For He Himself has
said, 'I will never leave
you nor forsake you.'
So we may boldly say:
'The Lord is my helper; I
will not fear. What can man
do to me?'" Hebrews 13:5-6

Our Attitude Toward Hardships

Enduring hardships can often be overwhelming and might
even cause a person to wonder why
such things happen to them.Only
God knows why bad things happen
to us and none of us are immune to
such conditions. Some people seem
to accept hardships better than
others, and one can only wonder if
perhaps they have been better con-
.ditioned toward hardships, or if they
simply have a stronger faith in Go'd7c
Our attitude toward difficulties and
the way ri which we confront them
are extremely important, and we
should realize that we are never
alone during these times. For it is
throughout hardships that we grbw
in faith and become a better person.
Our Lord told us that"He is with us always, and that
He would never leave us or forsake us.'In the midst of
trouble, our Lord wants us to be mindful of His love for us
and that our being prayerful and positive are important. By
accepting our crosses in this world, we are reflecting our
love for God, and understanding that this is necessary for
the ultimate goal of our salvation.

And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not
Worthy of Me. New K.J.V. Matthew 10.38
