Psalm 118: 24 - 25:

24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
25 Save now, I beseech thee, O Lord: O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.

Leviticus 23: 33 - 41:

33 ¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
34 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the Lord.
35 On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.
36 Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein.
37 These are the feasts of the Lord, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord, a burnt offering, and a meat offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, every thing upon his day:
38 Beside the sabbaths of the Lord, and beside your gifts, and beside all your vows, and beside all your freewill offerings, which ye give unto the Lord.
39 Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the Lord seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath.
40 And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the Lord your God seven days.
41 And ye shall keep it a feast unto the Lord seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month.

Working for a pediatrician calls for stifling a chuckle from time to time. When a frantic mother phoned to tell us her baby had a high temperature of 102, we had to know whether she was taking the reading under the arm, in the mouth or elsewhere.

So we asked, "How are you taking it?"

Her reply, "Oh, I'm holding up pretty well!"

David leaned over, touched his wife's arm and whispered, "Pillsbury All-purpose, isn't it?"


Ten Tips for Ski Season

This is to remind you skiers how to prepare for the ski season and to remind non-skiers why they have the sense NOT to ski.

10. Visit your local butcher and pay $35 to sit in the walk-in freezer for half an hour. Afterwards, burn two $50 dollar bills to warm up.

9. Go to the nearest hockey rink and walk across the ice 20 times in your ski boots carrying two pairs of skis, accessory bag and poles. Pretend you are looking for your car.

8. For ski boot simulation at home, put a pebble in your street shoes and tighten a C-clamp around your toes.

7. Buy an expensive pair of gloves and immediately throw one away.

6. Go to McDonald's and insist on paying $6.50 for a hamburger. Be sure to wait in the longest line.

5. Clip a lift ticket to the zipper of your jacket and ride a motorcycle fast enough to make the ticket lacerate your face.

4. Drive slowly for five hours - anywhere - as long as it's in a snowstorm and you're following an 18-wheeler.

3. Fill a blender with ice, hit the pulse button and let the spray blast your face. You'd almost believe you're skiing in front of a snowmaker!

2. Dress up in as many clothes as you can and then proceed to take them off because you have to go to the bathroom.

1. Repeat all of the above every weekend.



"Love me when I least deserve it, because that's when I really need it."
- Swedish Proverb

"Loving is the most unmitigated and courageous act I perform in a day."
- Mary Anne Radmacher

"Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That's why it's a comfort to go hand in hand."
- Emily Kimbrough

"May a thread of comfort be woven through your difficult days."
- Mary Anne Radmacher

"True love never comes with conditions. Become a source of unconditional love."

Health Tip

Use dental floss before you brush instead of after as many people do. Flossing after brushing can leave some of the loosened fragments still in your mouth.


Thrifty Tip

Button Holders
Kids constantly losing their button? Sew them on with un-waxed dental floss and you have “super thread” that will stand up to rough wear and tear.


Ponder Worthy and Inspirational-Both from MountainWings

Big Storm (So true!)

The bigger the storm in your life, the easier it is to convert back to old survival habits.

~Dr. Jack Groppel~



ONE is the smallest whole number, yet the most significant.

We often think of the big numbers; hundreds, thousands, and millions. Life really boils down to ONE.

One aspect of ONE, I am divinely commanded to help at least ONE person, each day.

That does two things.

First, it helps the other person. Whether it is just a compliment, a dollar given to a homeless person, or even something so small as holding the door open for someone, it is help. It helps ease the burden of life for someone.

Second, it makes me focus on someone other than myself.

This world is geared to make us self-centered. After all, we have enough stuff of our own to deal with without trying to solve someone else's problems.

We don't have enough money for us so we focus on the two outside letters of "money" instead on the three inside letters.
We don't have enough time for us.
We don't have enough joy, peace, and happiness for us.
We need our relationships improved.
We need a compliment and an uplift.
We need help.

We often don't have time to think of helping someone else.

There is a funny thing about helping some"one" else.
When you are helping someone else, for that moment in time, your own problems are diminished.

I will tell you to do as I try to do, "Help someone every day."

If you don't have anything to give them or to spare, give them this. Give them MountainWings.

Suppose you asked, or emailed, or called ONE person and got them to join MountainWings?

It won't cost you one penny.
It will only take a few minutes, probably less than three.
During those three minutes, your problems will diminish.

Maybe you will have to call three people to get ONE to join.
That's nine minutes.

As I write this, I think to myself, "When was the last time I personally got anyone to join MountainWings?" It has been so long, I can't remember. I meet a lot of people. Most of them need help in one form or another. Most of them would be greatly helped by MountainWings.

Today, I will get at least ONE. I will help at least ONE.

Will it change the world if you get ONE person to join?

It will change THAT person's world.

Everyday. What a gift!

Jesus said, "I tell you there is more joy in heaven over ONE sinner who changes his heart and life, than over ninety-nine good people who don't need to change." (Luke 15:7 NCV)


Help ONE person today.

~A MountainWings Original~

Change a life, give a friend MountainWings.
See you tomorrow.
