Taking a little fly by -want to give it a try

Rabbi Yehuda Lave

Prepare For The Best

The best time to mentally prepare yourself for times of adversity is when things are going well and you are in a resourceful state. Adversity is a challenge that enables you to develop attributes that wouldn't be developed in easier times. Keep building up the inner resources that will enable you to cope well with difficulties. If you are in the middle of a difficulty right now, then right now is the best time to build up those resources. You won't have to wait and see if the inner resources you need are becoming a part of you, you will see results right away.

Develop courage and confidence. Develop persistence and resilience. Develop optimism and hope. How can you develop these qualities? Visualize yourself mastering them. See, hear, and feel yourself being confident and courageous. See, hear, and feel yourself persisting and bouncing back. Right now feel an inner sense of optimism that you will cope well with difficulties. And if a difficulty arises that you don't cope with as well as you wished, learn from the experience to cope better next time.

When someone attacks you, know that it is their own stuff they are dealing with.

A Blessing For You!

{ 1 } Once upon a time, all the villagers decided
to pray for rain. On the day of prayer all the
people gathered but only one small boy came with
an umbrella.

*That's FAITH*

{ 2 } WHEN You throw a baby in the air, they laugh
because they know you will catch them.

*That's TRUST*

{ 3 } Almost every night we go to bed, without any
assurance of being alive the next morning, but
still we set the alarms to wake up.

*That's HOPE*

{ 4 } We Plan big things for tomorrow in spite of
absolutely no knowledge of the future.

sentence - 'I Am Not 80 Years Old..,
I Am Sweet 16 with 64 Years Experience.'


{7} Now that you've been blessed, don't be stingy
with the blessing and pass this on!

*That's CARING*

*Some Gentle Thoughts for Today:*

A penny saved is a government oversight.

The older you get, the tougher it is to lose
weight, because by then your body and
your fat have gotten to be really good friends.

The easiest way to find something lost around the
house is to buy a replacement.

He who hesitates is probably right.

Did you ever notice: The Roman Numerals for forty
(40) are XL.

The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so he
can tell when he's really in trouble.

Did you ever notice: When you put the 2 words
'The' and 'IRS' together it spells 'Theirs!'

Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you
stop lying about your age and start bragging about

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not
me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way.

I've traveled a long way and some of the roads
weren't paved.

When you are dissatisfied and would like to go
back to your youth, think of Algebra.

One of the many things no one tells you about
aging is that it is such a nice change from being

Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is

Lord, keep your arm around my shoulder and your
hand over my mouth.

No entry to Jordan if you look Jewish

Israeli tourists looking to go pray at Aaron's tomb in Jordan turned back because they were wearing Yarmulkes and carried prayer shawls.

At the end of last week a group of tourists from Israel received permission to pray at the tomb of Aaron, brother of Moses, which is in Jordan. However, Jordanian officials refused to let them through with anything that marks them as Jewish, according to a Channel 2 news report.

The visitors wanted to enter Jordan with Yarmulkes, prayer shawls and prayer books, but Jordanian security forces told them they will not be allowed into Jordanian territory with any sort of Jewish paraphernalia, including any text written in Hebrew.

The Israeli tourists had tried to hide all the paraphernalia from view in their bags, but it was all discovered during security screenings.

The Foreign Ministry announced that it will look into the matter, and stated that this kind of conduct goes against all agreements between Israel and Jordan.

This is not the first time Jews have been asked to remove anything that will identify them as Jewish before entering the territory of Jordan. Last December, a religious-Zionist family from Jerusalem was barred from entering Jordan with their Yarmulkes on, because this would pose a threat to their safety.

The Jordanian soldiers asked the family members to take off their Yarmulkes and hand them over. The Israelis tries to explain that they have no intention of touring around Jordan with their headdress readily visible, but to no avail. Another young man was trying to cross the border with a Teffilin that were discovered in the baggage screening. He was also not allowed to enter Jordanian territory.

I am Seenager (Senior Teenager)



I am a Seenager. (Senior teenager)


I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 60 years later.

I don't have to go to school or work.

I get an allowance every month.

I have my own pad.

I don't have a curfew.

I have a driver's license and my own car.

I have ID that gets me into bars and the wine store. I like the wine store best.

The people I hang around with are not scared of getting pregnant, they aren't scared of anything, they have been blessed to live this long. Why be scared?

And I don't have acne.

Life is Good! Also, you will feel much more intelligent after reading this, if you are a Seenager.

Brains of older people are slow because they know so much. People do not decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to recall facts because they have more information in their brains, scientists believe this also makes you hard of hearing as it puts pressure on your inner ear.

Much like a computer struggles as the hard drive gets full, so too, do humans take longer to access information when their brains are full.

Researchers say this slowing down process is not the same as cognitive decline. The human brain works slower in old age, said Dr. Michael Ramscar, but only because we have stored more information over time. The brains of older people do not get weak. On the contrary, they simply know more.

Also, older people often go to another room to get something and when they get there, they stand there wondering what they came for. It is NOT a memory problem;it is nature's way of making older people do more exercise.


I have more friends I should send this to, but right now I can't remember their names. So, please forward this to your friends; they may be my friends, too.

It's just as Winston Churchill said about democracy - "Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others."

Think about it

You can change the direction just by thinking about it--give it a try
