TOP OF THE MANTLE

Hello from Barbara's Entourage

Today has to be a very sad day for all the families of the NASA crew on the Shuttle Columbia. My son called to ask if we were watching the news. We were not, so he told me to tune in. When I did, all I could see was the bits and pieces of the re-entry of the shuttle Columbia into the air space over Texas.

Our hearts go out to those family members whose hearts are surely breaking on the news and fate of their loved ones. Life will never be the same for any of them. But, peace can be found through Jesus Christ. He is in the mending-heart business. There is a peace that He can give that can come from no other person or thing. That heart that is breaking now can be calmed.

Today we pray for the crew, that they all knew God as their personal Savior and are now within his loving arms. We pray for those family members left behind, that God will take them under his wings, console their hearts and minds, and help them through these next days and months. Their lives are forever changed, but God can give them peace from all the hurt and pain they are now experiencing. May His love surround them at this moment and forever.

Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

SPECIAL FEATURE DEVOTIONAL

Is It Well With Your Soul?

<((< -- <((< -- <(< -- <((< -- <((< -- <((<

When God is in the midst of a kingdom or city he makes it as firm as Mount Zion, that cannot be removed. When He is in the midst of a soul, though calamities throng about it on all hands, and roar like the billows of the sea, yet there is a constant calm within, such a peace as the world can neither give nor take away. What is it but want of lodging God in the soul, and that in His stead the world is in men's hearts, that makes them shake like leaves at every blast of danger?
--Archbishop Leighton

'THIS AND THAT' ...
Joy, Humor, and Faith on the net!

Most of us have now learned to live with voice mail as a necessary part of our lives. Have you ever wondered what it would be like if God decided to install voice mail? Imagine praying and hearing the following:

Thank you for calling heaven.
For English press 1
For Spanish press 2
For all other languages, press 3

Please select one of the following options:
Press 1 for request
Press 2 for thanksgiving
Press 3 for complaints
Press 4 for all others

I am sorry, all our Angels and Saints are busy helping other sinners right now. However, your prayer is important to us and we will answer it in the order it was received. Please stay on the line.

If you would like to speak to:
God, press 1
Jesus, press 2
Holy spirit, press 3

To find a loved one that has been assigned to heaven press 5, then enter his social security # followed by the pound sign.

(If you receive a negative response, please hang up and dial area code 666) For reservations to heaven, please enter JOHN followed by the numbers, 3-16.

For answers to nagging questions about dinosaurs, life and other planets, please wait until you arrive in heaven for the specifics.

Our computers show that you have already been prayed for today, please hang up and call again tomorrow.

The office is now closed for the weekend to observe a religious holiday.

If you are calling after hours and need emergency assistance, please contact your local pastor.
