Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Another EMail I Received - Wonder Why They're Sending These To Me?

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN GUILTY OF LOOKING AT OTHERS YOUR OWN AGE
AND

THINKING, SURELY I CAN'T LOOK THAT OLD. WELL YOU'LL LOVE
THIS ONE.

MY NAME IS ALICE SMITH AND I WAS SITTING IN THE WAITING ROOM
FOR

MY FIRST APPOINTMENT WITH A NEW DENTIST WHEN I NOTICED HIS DDS

DIPLOMA, WHICH BORE HIS FULL NAME.

SUDDENLY, I REMEMBERED A TALL, HANDSOME, DARK-HAIRED BOY,
WITH

THE SAME NAME, HAD BEEN IN MY HIGH SCHOOL CLASS SOME 40-ODD YEARS AGO.

COULD HE BE THE SAME GUY THAT I HAD A SECRET CRUSH ON, WAY
BACK

THEN? UPON SEEING HIM, HOWEVER, I QUICKLY DISCARDED ANY SUCH THOUGHT.

THIS BALDING, GRAY-HAIRED MAN WITH THE DEEPLY LINED FACE WAS WAY TOO

OLD TO HAVE BEEN MY CLASSMATE. AFTER HE EXAMINED MY TEETH, I ASKED HIM

IF HE HAD ATTENDED FAIRVIEW HIGH SCHOOL

"YES. YES, I DID. I'M A BULLDOG," HE GLEAMED WITH
PRIDE.

"WHEN DID YOU GRADUATE?" I ASKED.

HE ANSWERED, "IN 1966. WHY DO YOU ASK?"

"YOU WERE IN MY CLASS I EXCLAIMED!!!.

HE LOOKED AT ME CLOSELY.

THEN, THAT UGLY,

OLD,

BALD,

WRINKLED,

FAT BEHIND,

GRAY-HAIRED,

DECREPIT

SON-OF-A-GUN ASKED,

"WHAT DID YOU TEACH ?"

I would want to beat him about the head and eyebrows. I wouldn't, but I'd want to some kinda bad!!

Ha ha ....I know that feeling only too well. I will be thinking I look "fine" and some young cutie will call me sir and make me feel about a hundred years old!

This is hilarious! It describes my 82 year old mother. She always thinks everyone else her age looks old, but she still feels she appears so much younger!

Feeling young,
Joy

So glad that you didn't end up marrying this crush. I graduated in 1967, and I know just what you mean about thinking I don't look that old...until I pass a mirror. I still feel just seventeen inside. Karen

Ha Ha!
That reminds me...I once ran into an old classmate and she said, "Oh, I didn't know you were pregnant!" I said, "I'm not"

Ouch!

Hi Marlene, that's a good one. I'm going to have to remember it.
Mom always said she thought she was so young until she looked in the mirror.
Hugs,
Bonnie

I love it! And oh so true! My grandmother once told me that she stopped aging when she was 40 and that she didn't have any wrinkles. She was about 85 at the time~guess we see what we want, LOL!

Sure hope your car situation is getting straightened out~what a mess!
