THE WEEKLY UPDATE
On this day in 1971, the U.S. Table Tennis Team began a weeklong visit to communist China. The trip was part of China’s attempt to build closer diplomatic relations with the U.S. It is not true that they wanted the team to come over so they could watch Forrest Gump play.
Now, back to business.

Thought for the week:
· Declaration of Destiny – “Jesus, you selected me before the beginning of time to receive grace and not condemnation. I have a God given responsibility on this earth that is only assigned to me and Jesus will provide for me everything I need to fulfill that assignment. No demon, no sickness and no hardship can keep me from walking in my destiny. Every obstacle I face must submit to my God given Kingdom authority. All principalities and powers were defeated through the death and resurrection of our Lord. I am destined to share in His glory and to walk in glory. Amen.” (2 Timothy 1, Romans 8, Colossians 2)
· Why are builders afraid to have a 13th floor but book publishers aren’t afraid to have a Chapter 11?
· If we aren’t supposed to eat animals, why are they made of meat?
· As you grow older, do you miss the innocence and idealism of your youth or do you mostly miss cherry bombs?
· Did you know half of all people are below average?
· Birth control pills are tax deductible but only if they don’t work?
· If you could have a conversation with someone living or dead who would it be? I’d choose the one who’s living.
A man went on vacation and arranged for his mother to stay at his house and take care of his cat. And, just to be sure, he asked his next-door neighbor if he would look in on them every day and make sure they were all right.
“No problem,” said the neighbor. The man flew off to Mexico and after a couple of days he called the neighbor and asked how things were going.
“Well,” the neighbor said. “Your cat died.”
“Geez,” the guy said. “You have to come right out and tell me like that? Couldn’t you have a little more consideration? I’m on vacation. Couldn’t you have broken it to me a little more gently. Like first telling me that the cat was on the roof, then the cat fell off the roof then maybe the next day telling me you had taken the cat to the vet – like that, not boom all at once! By the way, how’s my mom doing?”
“Well,” said the neighbor, “She’s up on the roof…”
Three friends die in a car accident and they go to an orientation in heaven. They are all asked, “When you are in your casket and friends and family are mourning you, what would you like to hear them say about you?”
The first guy says, “I would like to hear them say that I was a great doctor in my time and a great family man.”
The second guy says, “I would like to hear that I was a wonderful husband and a school teacher who made a huge difference in our children of tomorrow.”
The last guy replies, “I would like to hear them say, ‘Look, he’s moving!’”
That’s all, folks. Enjoy the rest of your week.
