Love never gives up:

Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn't want what it doesn't have.
Love doesn't strut.
Doesn't have a swelled head,
Doesn't force itself on others,
Isn't always 'me first',
Doesn't fly off the handle,
Doesn't keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn't revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end..."

{"Way of Love" described in 1 Corinthians 13}

I expect to pass through life but once. If, therefore, there be any kindness I can
do, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, for I shall
not pass this way again. - William Penn (Founder of State of Penn.)

The Brainy Bug: What Makes Ticks Tick

According to one recent report, the common tick may
be ready for a Ph.D. degree. At least, if statements
in a New York Times story are true, the tiny arachnid
that bites hikers along our roadsides ought to
receive a doctorate, because it knows things
researchers still don't understand.

Dr. Jose Ribeiro, a parasitologist at the National
Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, says,
"Ticks know everything we know and don't know about
pharmacology. . . . Biologically, a tick is a box
inside a box inside a box."

What impressed the researchers? Dr. Daniel E.
Sonenshine, biology professor at Old Dominion
University in Norfolk, Virginia, says, "Ticks are
very finicky, like . . . brats who will only eat
cookies. The tick has . . . a big cafeteria of cells,
muscle, other tissue. But it says no thanks. Just
give me red blood cells."

Dr. Stephen Wikel, entomologist at the University of
Connecticut Health Center, studies Ixodes scapularis
-- the deer tick, the main carrier of Lyme disease.
Instead of eating on the run like mosquitoes, the
tick establishes residence on the body of its host --
camping there for a feast that continues
intermittently for five to seven days!

To that end, the tick has dozens of elaborate
chemical weapons in its saliva. Instead of
immediately gorging itself, it drinks only a little
blood at first. It concentrates on injecting enough
saliva into the wound to avoid detection, stay
attached, disable the immune system and keep the blood flowing.

How does a little parasite do all of that? For one
thing, it injects anesthetic so the host won't feel
it and interrupt the meal.

Normally the host's clotting mechanism would limit
the amount of blood an invader could extract. And the
immune system would fortify the invasion site with
white corpuscles.

But the arachnid's saliva contains compounds to
disable the clotting system and to trick white cells
into staying away. As a result, the tick has an
undiluted diet of red cells, to provide globin
molecules that enable it to mature and reproduce.

Dr. Wikel hopes to discover how this complex process
works, and to find a vaccine to counter Lyme disease.
I hope he does. He and his students have already
dissected some ten thousand ticks, but he says, "We
probably have a lifetime of work ahead of us."

But reading their statements, I was most struck by
the worldview of the researchers: They said things
like, "evolution carried on and ticks . . . developed
ways to keep the blood flowing," and "They have a
very ancient wisdom." Dr. Ribeiro said, "Ticks know
everything we know and don't know about pharmacology."

Well, they may do some amazing things, but does
anyone really believe the tick's minuscule brain
comprehends the chemical cocktail that it carries in
its saliva? Even if so, could mere natural processes
have engineered this incredible biological interaction?

No, the logic here is perfectly clear to anyone with
eyes to see and ears to hear. We don't need to award
a Ph.D. to the tick, and we don't need to praise the
creature for what it does instinctively. Even in the
case of the minuscule tick, we see infinite
complexity, something that could not have come about
from random processes -- only from a Creator, one who
everyday surpasses our understanding and makes fools
of the wise.

Four Important Things To KNOW:

1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews,
Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians,
Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist,
Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist,
French, etc.) have sinned & fall
short of the glory of God.

2) For the wages of above (see #1)
are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation
from God, & damnation) but the Gift
(free & at no charge to you) of God
(Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is
Eternal Life (Heaven) through
(in union with) Jesus Christ
(God, Lord, 2nd Person of the
Trinity, Messiah, Prince of
Peace & Savior of the World).

3) For God so greatly loved & dearly
prized the world (Americans, Muslims,
Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist,
Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans,
Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons,
Methodist, French, etc.) that
He even gave up His only begotten
(unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone,
anywhere, anytime - while still living)
believes (trust in, relies on, clings to,
depends completely on) Him shall
have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven).

4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH,
& THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American,
Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist,
Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist,
Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French,
etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with
GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through)
ME (no other name).

This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice -
(Rev. 3:20)


{Please note that church membership,
baptism, doing good things, etc. are not
requirements for becoming a Christian -
however they are great afterwards!!!}


Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad
is the road that leads to destruction
(Hell, damnation, eternal punishment),
and many enter through it. But small
is the gate and narrow the road that
leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness,
forever with God), and only a few find it.

The Bible is the best of all books,
for it is the word of God and teaches
us the way to be happy in this world
and in the next. Continue therefore
to read it and to regulate your life by
its precepts. - John Jay, letter to
Peter Augustus Jay, 1784

I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever
given to man. All the good from the Savior of the
world is communicated to us through this book.
- President Abraham Lincoln

For we must consider that we shall be as a City
upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us.
So that if we shall deal falsely with our God in this
work we have undertaken, and so cause Him to
withdraw his present help from us, we shall be
made a story and a byword throughout the world.
- John Winthrop, Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, 1630

It is impossible to rightly govern the world without
God and the Bible. - Attributed to President George Washington

The Bible is no mere book, but a Living Creature,
with a power that conquers all that oppose it. - Napoleon

That Book accounts for the supremacy of England.
- Queen Victoria
