Yep, You'll Send It Back

A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell.
He painted a sign advertising the 4 pups and set about nailing it to a post on the edge of his yard. As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt a tug on his overalls. He looked down into the eyes of a little boy.

“Mister,” he said, “I want to buy one of your puppies..”

“Well,” said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat off the back of his neck, “These puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money.”

The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching deep into his pocket, he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer.

“I’ve got thirty-nine cents. Is that enough to take a look?”

“Sure,” said the farmer. And with that he let out a whistle. “Here, Dolly!” he called.

Out from the doghouse and down the ramp ran Dolly followed by four little balls of fur.

The little boy pressed his face against the chain link fence. His eyes danced with delight. As the dogs made their way to the fence, the little boy noticed something else stirring inside the doghouse.

Slowly another little ball appeared, this one noticeably smaller. Down the ramp it slid. Then in a somewhat awkward manner, the little pup began hobbling toward the others, doing its best to catch up….

“I want that one,” the little boy said, pointing to the runt. The farmer knelt down at the boy’s side and said,
“Son, you don’t want that puppy. He will never be able to run and play with you like these other dogs would.”

With that the little boy stepped back from the fence,
reached down, and began rolling up one leg of his trousers.

In doing so he revealed a steel brace running down both sides of his leg attaching itself to a specially made shoe.

Looking back up at the farmer, he said, “You see sir, I don’t run too well myself, and he will need someone who understands.”

With tears in his eyes, the farmer reached down and picked up the little pup.
Yep, You'll Send It Back

Holding it carefully he handed it to the little boy.

“How much?” asked the little boy… “No charge,”
answered the farmer, “There’s no charge for love.”

The world is full of people who need someone who understands.

It’s National Friendship Week.

Show your friends how much you care.
Send this to everyone you consider a FRIEND.
as well as those who WERE!!!
If it comes back to you, then you’ll know you have a circle of friends.

Yep, You'll Send It Back

WHEN YOU RECEIVE THIS LETTER, YOU’RE REQUESTED TO SEND IT TO AT LEAST 4 PEOPLE, INCLUDING THE PERSON WHO SENT IT TO YOU

Little John the Baptist

Matt..18:4-5

“Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And who ever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.”

Johnny’s Mother looked out the window and noticed him “playing church” with their cat. He had the cat sitting quietly and he was preaching to it. She smiled and went about her work. A while later she heard loud meowing and hissing and ran back To the open window to see Johnny baptizing the cat in a tub of water.

She called out, ” Johnny, stop that! The cat is afraid of water!”

Johnny looked up at her and said, “He should have thought about that before he joined my church.”

Send this to someone who needs a laugh today and remember: Knowing scripture can save your life — in more ways than one!

Have a great day,

Feed your faith and your doubts will starve to death…

Thanks…This Made My Heart Feels Good

Monday, August 13th, 2012
在百忙中給您最親愛的人少許時間…..是不是您生命中最有意義的事呢?由此刻開始讓我們每天都給天父少許時間吧!

A young man learns what's most important in life from the guy next door……….



Over the phone, his mother told him, "Mr. Belser died last night. The funeral is Wednesday." Memories flashed through his mind like an old newsreel as he sat quietly remembering his childhood days.

"Jack, did you hear me?"

"Oh, sorry, Mom. Yes, I heard you. It's been so long since I thought of him. I'm sorry, but I honestly thought he died years ago," Jack said.

"Well, he didn't forget you. Every time I saw him he'd ask how you were doing. He'd reminisce about the many days you spent over 'his side of the fence' as he put it," Mom told him.

"I loved that old house he lived in," Jack said.

"You know, Jack, after your father died, Mr. Belser stepped in to make sure you had a man's influence in your life," she said.

"He's the one who taught me carpentry," he said. "I wouldn't be in this business if it weren't for him. He spent a lot of time teaching me things he thought were important. Mom, I'll be there for the funeral," Jack said.

As busy as he was, he kept his word. Jack caught the next flight to his hometown. Mr. Belser's funeral was small and uneventful. He had no children of his own, and most of his relatives had passed away.

The night before he had to return home, Jack and his Mom stopped by to see the old house next door one more time.

Standing in the doorway, Jack paused for a moment. It was like crossing over into another dimension, a leap through space and time. The house was exactly as he remembered. Every step held memories. Every picture, every piece of furniture. Jack stopped suddenly…

"What's wrong, Jack?" his Mom asked.

"The box is gone," he said

"What box?" Mom asked.

"There was a small gold box that he kept locked on top of his desk. I must have asked him a thousand times what was inside. All he'd ever tell me was 'the thing I value most,' Jack said.

It was gone. Everything about the house was exactly how Jack remembered it, except for the box. He figured someone from the Belser family had taken it.

"Now I'll never know what was so valuable to him," Jack said. "I better get some sleep. I have an early flight home, Mom."

It had been about two weeks since Mr. Belser died. Returning home from work one day, Jack discovered a note in his mailbox. "Signature required on a package. No one at home. Please stop by the main post office within the next three days," the note read. Early the next day Jack retrieved the package. The small box was old and looked like it had been mailed a hundred years ago. The handwriting was difficult to read, but the return address caught his attention. "Mr. Harold Belser" it read. Jack took the box out to his car and ripped open the package. There inside was the gold box and an envelope. Jack's hands shook as he read the note inside……

"Upon my death, please forward this box and its contents to Jack Bennett. It's the thing I valued most in my life." A small key was taped to the letter. His heart raced as tears filled his eyes. Jack carefully unlocked the box. There inside he found a beautiful gold pocket watch.

Running his fingers slowly over the finely etched casing, he unlatched the cover. Inside he found these words engraved:

"Jack, Thanks for your time! -Harold Belser."

"The thing he valued most was…..my time."

Jack held the watch for a few minutes, then called his office and cleared his appointments for the next two days. "Why?" Janet, his assistant, asked.

"I need some time to spend with my son," he said.

"Oh, by the way, Janet, thanks for your time!"


Think about this. You may not realize it, but it's 100% true.

1. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.

2. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.

3. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.

4. You mean the world to someone.

5. If not for you, someone may not be living.

6. You are special and unique.

7. When you think you have no chance of getting what you want, you probably won't get it, but if you trust God to do what's best, and wait for 'His time', sooner or later, you will get it or something better.

8. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good can still come from
it.

9. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look: you most likely turned your back on the world.

10. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.

11. Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks.

12 . Always tell someone how you feel about them; you will feel much better when they know, and you'll both be happy .

13. If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that you think they are great.


Now send this on to all the people you care about. If you do, you will certainly brighten someone's day and just might change their perspective on life…..for the better.
And to you, to whom I sent this,


Thanks for your time!

The nun who kissed Elvis: Extraordinary story of a starlet who turned her back on Hollywood to live in a convent

By Tom Leonard
UPDATED: 09:02 GMT, 24 February 2012

Looking back: Dolores Hart and Elvis Presley promoting Loving You; Hart went on to become a nun
Looking back: Dolores Hart and Elvis Presley promoting Loving You; Hart went on to become a nun
The speculation will continue until the last minute about the fashion parade in store for us at the Oscars this weekend, but we can be sure that at least one of the actresses trooping into Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre will be wearing black — the black habit of the Benedictine order of nuns.
The last time Dolores Hart walked the Academy Awards red carpet — in 1962 — she was the blushing starlet who had given Elvis Presley his first screen kiss.
After a whirlwind rise to stardom, the 23-year-old beauty had secured a $1million contract and roles opposite some of Hollywood’s leading men.
But then she gave it all up — disappearing from public life so completely she might have been a figment of some movie mogul’s imagination.
But this Sunday she will finally return as the woman she chose to become — Mother Dolores, prioress of a cloistered nunnery in rural Connecticut, a Benedictine nun who has spent the past 50 years living a life of hard manual work, contemplation and prayer.
Now 73, she has agreed to make a rare foray from her isolated life at the Abbey of Regina Laudis in order to celebrate an Oscar-nominated documentary, God Is The Bigger Elvis, which has been made about her life.
She says she is enormously excited about the biggest night in the showbusiness calendar — even if she has to go up on stage.
And while the Oscars may not be used to people who dress in plain clothes and walk with a stick, this is a woman who’s already experienced the sort of movie star adulation about which many of today’s preening, pouting actresses in their megabucks designer gowns can only dream.
Mother Dolores still has the piercing blue eyes and demure, flawless beauty that once made Grace Kelly comparisons inevitable.
She was just 18 when she made her screen debut, co-starring with a young Elvis in Loving You. The 1957 film was only his second movie, and his lingering kiss with Dolores Hart made her the envy of women everywhere.
She is still asked what it was like and her unexciting, if rather sweet, answer is that they both blushed so much that filming had to be stopped while their purple ears were swathed in make-up. ‘If there is anything I am most grateful for it is the privilege of being one of the few people left to acknowledge he was an innocent,’ she said of Presley ten years ago.

The film made her name and she swiftly made two more, starring alongside Montgomery Clift and Anthony Quinn, before teaming up again with Elvis in King Creole in 1958.
She was to pack in nine films in five years, including the cult comedy Where The Boys Are with George Hamilton. All the time, she remained a devout Roman Catholic, getting up at 6am for Mass each day and praying before every audition. In what was to be her last film, 1963’s Come Fly With Me, she played a beautiful airline stewardess looking for romance and excitement.
But in real life she was gravitating towards something very different. The only child of two good-looking, bit-part Hollywood actors who separated when she was young, her lonely, unsettled childhood was split between the glamour of Los Angeles and a Catholic school in Chicago, where she lived for some of the year with her grandparents.
After she left school, she moved to Hollywood, and in 1957 was signed up, aged 18. Fame came quickly, but she found the emotional side of film-making unsatisfying. ‘You worked intensely for maybe ten weeks, and then you break and you never see the person again,’ she said later.

While starring in a Broadway play, a friend suggested she take a break and stay at a guest cottage in the grounds of a Catholic abbey in Connecticut. But she had unhappy memories of school. ‘I said: “Oh, I don’t want to go to see more nuns,”’ she says. ‘My friend said: “Just try it — they’re contemplative and they won’t talk.”’
Sure enough, Dolores instantly found peace — and the close-knit community she had been craving since childhood. She talked about becoming a nun there and then, but she was only 21 and the abbess considered her too immature.
Dolores certainly sounded surprisingly unworldly for someone who had already spent a few years in Hollywood, telling the abbess she was worried that a Catholic girl like her shouldn’t be making films with Elvis, because she could be ‘aroused by the boys’. It took three years and several more visits to the abbey before the nuns agreed she was ready to take holy orders — but by then she was engaged.
Don Robinson, a successful Los Angeles architect, had been courting her for five years. But as they returned from their engagement party, she admitted to him that she wanted to become a nun.

Robinson was devastated at first but, as a Catholic himself, brought himself to accept it as God’s will.
In the years that followed, he went out with other women, but never found one he wanted to marry. Devoted to the woman he could never have as his wife, he continued to visit Mother Dolores in her nunnery at Christmas and Easter every year until his death just three months ago.
‘I never got over Dolores,’ said Mr Robinson shortly before he died. ‘I have the same thoughts [about her] today as I did 52 years ago.’
But if Don Robinson showed great understanding of Dolores’s desire to serve God, her studio was furious.
When studio MGM asked her to promote Come Fly With Me, Dolores said she wanted to visit ‘friends in the country’. The studio drove her to the abbey in a limousine, unaware she was never coming back. She became a novice nun that day.
If the studio executives were angry at what they saw as a betrayal of their trust, everyone else — including her family — was incredulous. The Press even pounced on a rumour that she had retreated to a nunnery after having Elvis’s love child. ‘It was hurtful and aggravating because ours was really such a fine relationship,’ she said years later.
Her early days as a nun were difficult as she came to realise that being a pampered star was no preparation for the hard life in the nunnery.
‘The first night I felt like I had jumped off a 20-storey building and landed flat on my bottom,’ she says in the new documentary. ‘I had no idea it was going to mean working in the garden, ten people sharing one bathroom, the sternness.’
I can understand why people have doubts. Because who understands God? I don’t.

On top of the physical labour, each day Dolores had to keep three periods of silence and sing Latin chants seven times. The outside world and her fellow nuns expected she would soon be pounding on the abbey doors to get out. Dolores admitted she had grave doubts herself. ‘The first few years were a very, very difficult transition,’ she says.
Even in her cloistered world, she was not cut off from her past. She became a close friend of the actress Patricia Neal in the Eighties after a mutual friend suggested Neal stay at the abbey to recover from the end of her turbulent marriage to Roald Dahl. The nuns calmed her down and Neal ended up staying at the nunnery for nearly a year. She later converted to Catholicism and is buried in the abbey grounds.
Mother Dolores has also remained an Oscars voter, watching DVDs of nominated films sent by the Academy in her office. ‘Watching films tells me what’s happening in civilisation and how much people are suffering,’ she says.
She has suffered herself in recent years, her health blighted by a neurological disorder. But as the documentary’s director, Rebecca Cammisa, told me, the nun still has much of the actress in her. ‘I think she sees returning to the Oscars as a sort of homecoming,’ says Cammisa.
‘If she had stayed in the film business, she would have been this huge star. It just shows you how strong her calling [to be a nun] must have been.’
So as she walks into the Kodak Theatre on Sunday, it’s hard not to think Dolores Hart won’t feel a twinge of regret for what might have been. She admits she has ‘struggled’ with her vocation all her life.
‘I can understand why people have doubts,’ says Mother Dolores.
‘Because who understands God? I don’t.’
