Things That Make You Think




Things That Make You Feel Old!!!

Children That Were Born In 1982:

They have no meaningful recollection of the Reagan Era
And probably did not know he had ever been shot

They were prepubescent when the Persian Gulf War was waged

Black Monday 1987 is as significant to them as the Great Depression

There has been only one Pope

They were 11 when the Soviet Union broke apart
And do not remember the Cold War

They have never feared a nuclear war

They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up

Tianamen Square means nothing to them

Their lifetime has always included AIDS

Bottle caps have always been screw off and plastic

Atari predates them, as do vinyl record albums
The expression you sound like a broken record means nothing to them

They have never owned a record player

They have likely never played Pac Man and have never heard of Pong

They may have never heard of an 8 track

The Compact Disc was introduced when they were 1 year old

As far as they know, stamps have always cost about 33 cents

They have always had an answering machine

Most have never seen a TV set with only 13 channels
Nor have they seen a black-and-white TV

They have always had cable

There have always been VCRs, but they have no idea what BETA is

They cannot fathom not having a remote control

They were born the year that Walkman's were introduced by Sony

Roller-skating has always meant in line to them

Jay Leno has always been the host of the Tonight Show

They have no idea when or why Jordache jeans were cool

Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave

They have never seen Larry Bird play basketball

They never took a swim and thought about Jaws

The Vietnam War is ancient history to them
As is WWI, WWII and the Civil War

They have no idea that Americans were ever held hostage in Iran

They can't imagine what hard contact lenses are

They don't know who Mork was or where he was from

They've never heard
Where's the beef? I'd walk a mile for a Camel, or DE plane, DE plane

They do not care who shot J.R. Ewing and have no idea who J.R. Ewing is

The Titanic was found? They thought we always knew where it was

Michael Jackson has always been white

Kansas, Chicago, Boston, America, and Alabama are places, not music groups

McDonalds never came in Styrofoam containers

There has always been MTV

They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter

Feel Good Things

Falling in love

Laughing so hard your face hurts

A hot shower

No lines at the Super Wal-Mart

A special glance

Getting mail

Getting e-mail

Taking a drive on a pretty road

Hearing your favorite song on the radio

Lying in bed listening to the rain outside

Hot towels out of the dryer

Finding the sweater you want is on sale for half price

Chocolate milkshake or vanilla!

A long distance phone call

A bubble bath

Giggling

A good conversation

The beach

Finding a $20 bill in your coat from last winter

Laughing at yourself

Midnight phone calls that last for hours

Running through sprinklers

Laughing for absolutely no reason at all

Having someone tell you that you're beautiful

Laughing at an inside joke

Friends

Accidentally overhearing someone say something nice about you

Waking up and realizing you still have a few hours left to sleep

Your first kiss

Making new friends or spending time with old ones

Playing with a new puppy

Having someone play with your hair

Sweet dreams

Hot chocolate

Road trips with friends

Swinging on swings

Wrapping presents under the Christmas tree

Eating cookies and drinking eggnog

Song lyrics printed inside your new CD
So that you can sing along without feeling stupid

Going to a really good concert

Making eye contact with a cute stranger

Winning a really competitive game

Making chocolate chip cookies

Having your friends send you homemade cookies

Spending time with close friends

Seeing smiles and hearing laughter from your friends

Holding hands with someone you care about

Running into an old friend and realizing that some things
Good or bad, never change

Riding the best roller coasters over and over

Watching the expression on someone's face
As they open a much desired present from you

Watching the sunrise.

Getting out of bed every morning and thanking God for another beautiful day

Hands

A basketball in my hands is worth about $19
A basketball in Michael Jordan's hands is worth about $33 million
It depends whose hands it's in

A baseball in my hands is worth about $6
A baseball in Mark Mcguire's hands is worth $19 million
It depends whose hands it's in

A tennis racket is useless in my hands
A tennis racket in Venus Williams hands is a Wimbledon Championship
It depends whose hands it's in

A rod in my hands will keep away a wild animal
A rod in Moses' hands will part the mighty sea
It depends whose hands it's in

A sling shot in my hands is a kid's toy
A sling shot in David's hand is a mighty weapon
It depends whose hands it's in

Two fish and 5 loaves of bread in my hands is a couple of fish
sandwiches
Two fish and 5 loaves of bread in God's hands will feed thousands
It depends whose hands it's in

Nails in my hands might produce a birdhouse
Nails in Jesus Christ's hands will produce salvation for the entire
world
It depends whose hands it's in

As You See Now
It Depends On Whose Hands It's In

So Put Your Concerns
Your Worries
Your Fears
Your Hopes
Your Dreams
Your Families
And Your Relationships In God's Hands
Because You See
It Depends On Whose Hands It's In

I asked the Lord to bless you

As I prayed for you today

To guide you and protect you

As you go along your way

His love is always with you

His promises are true

And when we give Him all our cares

You know He will see us through

So when the road you're traveling on

Seems difficult at best

Just remember I'm here praying

And God will do the rest
