Vision of a Church

Candles burning
Prayers ascending
Children running
Hands holding on
Tears falling
Classes meeting
Friends laughing
Congregation singing joyously
Serious thinking
Frank sharing
People growing
Each accepting all
Quiet surrounding
Silence breaking
Praises ringing
God hearing worship
Children painting
Youth dancing
Adults guiding
All knowing grace
People gathering
Room bursting
Fellowship abounding
Pass the casserole
Family loving
None arguing
All listening
Hearing God's voice
Hungry complaining
Homeless freezing
God asking
Family supplying all
Believers gathering
Bread breaking
God inviting
God's children sharing communion
God baptizing
Lovers marrying
Friends dying
The crying supported
Made a friend
Becoming a believer
God smiling

Your Age by Chocolate Math

I picked this up from the EZasPi knitting list from Elaine, who got it from her 16 year old son, JJ:

Your Age by Chocolate Math

DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST! -- It takes less than a minute. Work this out as you read ... Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out!
  1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate(more than once but less than 10)
  2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)
  3. Add 5
  4. Multiply it by 50 -- I'll wait while you get the calculator
  5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1755 ... If you haven't, add 1754.
  6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

You should have a three digit number. The first digit of this was your original number (i.e., how many times you want to have chocolate each week). The next two numbers are your age (Oh YES, it is!!!!!) This is the only year (2005) that it will ever work, so spread it around now.
