Deuteronomy 8:10

When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the LORD your God for the good land he has given you. Thousands of years after this verse was written, in the midst of a hard winter that killed half of their fellow travelers, the Pilgrims who settled America still had a lot to be thankful for. Just before they arrived, a plague had wiped out a hostile tribe that would have killed them. Fifteen years earlier, one member of that tribe had been taken to Europe, was taught English, became a Christian, and came back to America just in time to teach the Pilgrims how to survive. Thanksgiving is a reminder that we have a good God who rescues us in a broken world. Today's commentary by: Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, Grace NYC Weekly Memory Verse Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)

Plastic Canvas

Plastic canvas From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Plastic canvas is a craft material of lightweight plastic with regularly spaced holes in imitation of embroidery canvas. It is also commonly known as vinyl weave. Plastic canvas is typically used as a foundation for needlepoint or other canvas work embroidery, usually in acrylic or wool knitting yarn. Due to its rigidity, it is useful for creating 3-dimensional objects such as tissue box covers, small jewelry boxes, handbags, and other decorative objects. Plastic canvas is manufactured in many colors and with various size holes for different thicknesses of yarn. As with textile canvas, these are described in count – that is, 10-count plastic canvas has 10 holes per linear inch. Typical sizes are 7-, 10-, and 14 count. It is most readily available in A4 size sheets but pre-made shapes such as circles, triangles as well as novelty shapes (e.g. dinosaur, bird, cross) are also available. Plastic canvas is also employed in teaching needlepoint and cross stitch to children, since its rigid structure does not require the use of a hoop or frame. Other uses Plastic canvas is also used by some for making animal mascot heads as a frame to build faux fur upon to make the head of the mascot, some people stick the Plastic canvas together with glue but this is not the only method of construction or sticking together a frame of a mascot head.

Two Blonde Men

~~~Two Blonde Men~~~ Two Blonde men were in the woods hunting. One looked at the other and said, "I've got to take a shit."~~~ The other said, "Well go behind one of those big trees, and shit."~~~ The first one said, "But I don't have any paper to wipe my ass." The other blonde replied, "You have a dollar, don't you?"~~~ The first one said, "Yeah, I've got a dollar. That's a great idea-- I'll use that!"~~~ He left and came back with shit all over his hands and clothes.~~~ His friend looked at him and asked, "What in the hell happened to you?"~~~ The first one replied, "Have you ever tried to wipe your ass with 3 quarters, 2 dimes, and a nickel?"~~~ Thanks to: Rich Trasborg --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Daily Bible Verse : Email Edition October 28th, 2009 Psalm 3:3 But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head. This psalm was written while David was fleeing as his own son, Absalom, was attempting to take over David's kingdom. The emotions in this psalm run strong and well they should. Yet in the midst of this turmoil David cries out to God to be his shield. God is ultimately the one who lifts our head from our current circumstances. As we cry aloud God will answer! Weekly Memory Verse Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV)
