I worked really hard last night to come up with this – and I’m excited that it’s now ready to go. It’s the (JOCK SHOW) Play At Home Game!  It comes complete with everything you see here. Including a tiny microphone, a tiny pair of headphones, and a tiny boss holding a tiny cattle prod.




“Oh, the depth and riches of the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out.” –Romans 11:33 New International Version
Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night. — Psalm 90:2 and 4




Wisdom is a shelter as money is a shelter, but the advantage of knowledge is this: that wisdom preserves the life of its possessor. — Ecclesiastes 7:12


Thought: We can try to insure our future through many things. Wisdom, however, is always a better investment than finances because it not only shelters us from our uncertain future, but Godly wisdom can also keep us out of the unnecessary consequences for dumb and ungodly behaviors. Most of all, God’s wisdom teaches us that there’s no solid future without our lives centered on God.


Prayer: O Lord God, I want to be wise in your ways and innocent in the ways of evil. Forgive my foolish and sometimes rebellious behaviors. Lead me with your Spirit in the ways of truth, justice, and righteousness. In the name of the Lord Jesus I pray. Amen.


The Thoughts and Prayers for Today’s Verse are written by Phil Ware. You can email questions or comments to phil@heartlight.org.




The chapter and verse corresponds to the month and the day!

Galatians 6:9 NIV = Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.




(NOTE: Some holidays may be duplicated due to various calendars reporting conflicting dates)


This is FAMILIES IN BUSINESS WEEK. ***MARLAR: Let’s hear it for nepotism! Yay! (I have to be positive about this because the owner’s daughter is in the other room answering phones and she can hear me.)


This is MEET A MATE WEEK. ***MARLAR: While this week is intended for singles to go out and meet other singles, married folks could use it as an excuse to make friends in Australia. Or maybe choose a different creamer for your coffee.


This is COACHES WEEK. ***MARLAR: And if you don’t like it you can shut up and take a lap.

Why do we call someone who’ll write almost anything for money a “hack?”

Well it’s not because they sometimes feel like taking an axe to their clients. The origin of the word lies not in a sharp temper–or wit–but rather in the animal kingdom. Hack is short for “hackney,” a word that since the 13th century has meant an ordinary horse, an animal that was not a thoroughbred or war horse used by a knight but rather just an everyday nag useful for mundane tasks. In other words, a horse that did the drudge work. After a century or so the word also came into use for a horse that could be hired out. By the 16th century it was being applied to people who did work for hire. Two hundred years later hackney became hack. So if you’re a hack, you’re considered “nobody.” I hope that doesn’t hack you off!

(None on the weekends)



Police in Maine have arrested a man they allege tried to steal lawn chairs from a woman’s yard. They say the man then swung a machete at the woman when she used a garden hoe to try to stop him from stealing.  *** Well, you’re stealing lawn furniture – so I guess lawn equipment is the obvious choice to do battle with.


Nine southern California McDonald’s restaurants are trying out breakfast bowls made with… wait for it… kale.  McDonald’s is serving kale.  *** This is what bowing down to bullies looks like, kids – and it’s not pretty.


Astrophysicists from the University of Hawaii have discovered THC (the active ingredient in marijuana) on a meteorite found in the Nevada desert in 2010.  THC was also found in a meteorite fragment in 2009 by a research team from the University of Mexico but the findings were dismissed at the time because of the “controversial nature of the discovery”.  *** This actually explains a lot when it comes to UFO crashes.  The spaceship captains were driving high.


During an interview on MSNBC, Nancy Pelosi said of fighting ISIS that we must fight them on “the front of social media”.  *** Yesss… in fact, we should all jump online and begin poking them on Facebook immediately.  That’ll make them stop beheading people.  If that doesn’t work – they get unfriended.




A report says Americans commuting to work lose over 3 billion hours sitting in traffic delays every year.  ***MARLAR: What a waste… those are hours that could have been spent at work shopping on eBay.


With smartphones in hand, we’re having a hard time dropping our workload when 5 PM rolls around. Even after an 8-hour day, many employees report checking emails and taking work-related calls after hours. Having constant access to our mobile communication streams tacks on an extra two hours of work a day.  ***MARLAR: If that’s the case, then shouldn’t we be allowed a three-hour lunch?


Performance-boosting drugs, powered prostheses and wearable computers are coming to an office near you – but experts warned in a new report that too little thought has been given to the implications of a superhuman workplace.  ***MARLAR: For example, if you’re going to be a superhuman office worker, how can you change into your super suit if we don’t have telephone booths anymore?


Bad posture can make you neck creak and your shoulders ache, but recent research shows that your slouch might be making you a grouch. In a recent study from San Francisco State University, slouchers reported increased feelings of depression and lower energy.  ***MARLAR: That’s odd, as I typically slouch because I’m depressed and tired.

The best way to get away with a crime? Just tell the cops not to bother getting up.

A Vancouver thief specializing in hitting high-end jewelry stores by neutralizing their sophisticated security systems is believed to be behind last month’s multi-million dollar art heist at the University of British Columbia’s Museum of Anthropology. In this high tech heist, he called campus police, said he was with the alarm company and that they were doing some tests and not to worry when the alarms went off. Campus security fell for it and ignored the ensuing alarms.






  1. EGGS – When something starts pecking its way out of the shell, the egg is probably past its prime.


  1. DAIRY PRODUCTS – Milk is spoiled when it starts to look like yogurt. Yogurt is spoiled when it starts to look like cottage cheese. Cottage cheese is spoiled when it starts to look like regular cheese. Regular cheese is nothing but spoiled milk anyway — if you can dig down and still find something non-green, bon appetite!.


  1. MEAT – If opening the refrigerator door causes stray animals from a three-block radius to congregate outside your house, toss the meat.


  1. LETTUCE – Bibb lettuce is spoiled when you can’t get it off the bottom of the vegetable crisper without Comet and a brillo pad. Romaine lettuce is spoiled when it turns liquid. Endive never spoils, but you will never eat it anyway.


  1. MAYONNAISE: If it makes you violently ill after you eat it, the mayonnaise is spoiled. Permanently.


  1. CARROTS – A carrot you can tie a clove hitch in is no longer fresh.


  1. CHIP DIP – If you can take it out of its container and bounce it on the floor, it has gone bad.


  1. UNMARKED ITEMS: You know it is well beyond prime when you’re tempted to discard the Tupperware along with the food. Generally speaking, Tupperware containers should not burp when you open them. If the original can you put it away in has finally lost it’s label, it’s probably done.


  1. EMPTY CONTAINERS: Putting empty containers back into the refrigerator is a fine old trick, but it only works if you live with someone else.


  1. THE GAG TEST – Anything that makes you gag is spoiled (except for leftovers from what you cooked for yourself last night).




Learning your criminal-mastermind techniques from TV may not be the best idea. The files of Law & Disorder, coming up!


FILE #1: An Alexandria, Louisiana, woman tried to outrun officers, thinking police could not arrest her once she made it home. Renetta Fells told officers she had seen that happen on a television show. Fells also did not stop because she did not want her car impounded. But once she pulled into her driveway, officers from four agencies surrounded and arrested Fells on charges of speeding, aggravated flight from an officer, reckless operation of a vehicle, and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle. Fells had pulled into her driveway and got out as if nothing had happened.


FILE #2: He used to put criminals away. Now he’ll be joining them. Former Highland Falls police Officer Matthew Lawrence was sentenced to 60 days in Orange County Jail after pleading guilty to official misconduct He admitted to stealing a $600 leaf blower from a locked utility garage at the James I. O’Neill High School in the Town of Highlands in New York. He was in full uniform, driving a police car at the time he committed the theft.


FILE #3: In Green Bay, Wisconsin, a 23-year-old inmate, serving 15 months in Brown Country jail for a robbery conviction, must have thought his sentence was too lenient. Why else would he have blinded himself permanently by gouging his own eyes out with his fingers? Lt. Phil Steffen of the sheriff’s department would not release the inmate’s name but did say, “He injured both eyes permanently. Nobody has heard of this happening before. How do you protect someone from their own hands?” Guards rushed to his cell after hearing strange noises. They found the man standing in his cell with blood covering his face. The officers were later given counseling and have returned to work. ***MARLAR: The OFFICERS received counseling? What about the guy that DOESN’T HAVE ANY EYES NOW?!?!


STRANGE LAW: In Delaware, getting married on a dare is grounds for an annulment.




What do you do to get rid of a telemarketing phone call? Jason Dee of Sparks, Nevada, thought he came up with a funny excuse to stop talking to a telemarketer.

He brushed the caller off by saying he couldn’t talk because he was too busy robbing the house. Jason wasn’t robbing the house — it was his house — but the man on the other end of the line did not know that, and soon the police were at his door. And while they couldn’t arrest him for burglary, they did discover that Dee was wanted for three outstanding warrants and he had drug paraphernalia in his home too, which resulted in the arrest of two of his friends who were sleeping at his house.

You have to match the blank in the tabloid headline with the word or phrase that has been removed!


Facebook Junior, a new platform for children under the age of 13, has launched – and millions have signed up already.

With Facebook’s stock under pressure and revenue streams needing to be strengthened, Facebook has launched a new site that allows children 13 and younger to have their own Facebook profiles, something that was not allowed before,  but happened commonly.

In order to comply with federal law, access for children comes with strict parental oversight.

Over the last two years, Facebook tested access for younger children that would allow them to control their account but would ultimately give responsibility for managing apps and friends requests to their parents.

Already the site is a huge hit, with millions of tweens, toddlers… and even newborns signing up.  ”We’ll probably add 50 million children before the end of the year,” said a source close to an employee of the company.






Two women came before wise King Solomon, dragging between them a young man in a three-piece suit.

“This young lawyer agreed to marry my daughter,” said one.

“No! He agreed to marry MY daughter,” said the other.

And so they haggled before the King until he called for silence. “Bring me my biggest sword,” said Solomon, “and I shall hew the young attorney in half. Each of you shall receive a half.”

“Sounds good to me,” said the first lady.

But the other woman said, “Oh Sire, do not spill innocent blood. Let the other woman’s daughter marry him.”

The wise king did not hesitate a moment. “The attorney must marry the first lady’s daughter,” he proclaimed.

Aghast, the second woman said, “But she was willing to hew him in two!”

“Indeed,” said wise King Solomon. “That shows she is the TRUE mother-in-law.”



On Sunday, the new young pastor arrived at church and found only an old farmer had shown up.

After waiting a while, the disappointed the pastor remarked to the old farmer, “Well, it appears no one else is coming, so we should probably cancel service today”

The farmer, dressed in his Sunday best, looked at the young preacher and said, “Well pastor, I don’t know much ’bout preachin’, but I do know something bout farmin’ and if I went out in the field and found only one cow, I’d still feed ’em”

This excited the young preacher who preached for the next 45 minutes a fierce fire and brimstone sermon. Afterwards the pastor asked the old farmer what he thought.

The old farmer remarked, “Well pastor, I don’t know much bout preachin’, but I do know somethin’ ’bout farmin’ and if I went out in the field and found only one cow, I wouldn’t give ’em the whole bale of hay.”



Two Irish hunters got a pilot to fly them to Canada to hunt moose.  They bagged six.  As they started loading the plane for the return trip, the pilot said the plane could take only four moose.  The two lads objected strongly. “Last year we shot six, and the pilot let us put them all on board; he had the same plane as yours.”

Reluctantly, the pilot gave in and all six were loaded.  However, even with full power, the little plane couldn’t handle the load and went down a few moments after take-off.

Climbing out of the wreckage, Paddy asked Seamus, “Any idea where we are?”

Seamus says, “Not sure but I think we’re pretty close to where we crashed last year.”

A Reno, Nevada, mom whose daughter was mistakenly disqualified from a spelling bee is threatening to sue all the way to the Supreme Court.  ***MARLAR: Sue for what?  What does she hope to gain from this… it’s not like they’re going to proclaim her daughter the champion just because mom calls a lawyer.  Do you think the mother knows how to spell “Frivolous Law Suit?”





The doctor had just been buried. The last words of the service over, his friends and family started toward their cars.
However, they stopped because a strange, eerie sound suddenly was heard from the grave.
As the guests looked around, a colleague of the deceased said, “It’s nothing… just his beeper.”

“My lord the king, please forgive me,” he pleaded. “Forget the terrible thing I did when you left Jerusalem.” 2 Samuel 19:19

The return of the king was a sudden, unanticipated event that radically changed all perspectives. Those who had mocked David as he left Jerusalem now repented, falling prostrate and begging for mercy. Those who had blessed David in his exile were richly rewarded (2 Samuel 19:23) and invited to sit at his table for the rest of their lives. With his return, David held accountable those whose actions were questionable, and the truth was revealed (v. 25). What a picture this story is of the return of the King of Kings! When Jesus returns, time will stop. One by one, we will each stand before the judgment seat of Christ and give a detailed account of how we have used our time, money, and gifts. We will answer for every wrong thought and attitude of the mind we have harbored. How foolish it is to waste our lives or brazenly defy the Lordship of Christ as though He will never return! Why not ponder every day what it will be like the moment after the King returns and it is too late to change anything? One day our King will return. That is a sure fact. May you hear Him say, “Well done, my good and faithful servant” (Matthew 25:21).

READ: Romans 12:9-21

If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. —Romans 12:18

My neighbor seemed upset with me. Apparently I had done something that bothered her. When I asked if I had offended her, she responded with a curt “No!” I told her, “I don’t want any bad feelings between us. If I’ve done something to offend you, I apologize.” Since then the climate has remained cool.

Someone has said, “The more I get to know the human race, the more I love my dog.” Dogs are loyal, dependable, eager to please, and quick to forgive and forget. Don’t you wish people were more like that?

But sometimes no matter how hard we try to have a good relationship with someone, it doesn’t work. The apostle Paul addressed that situation in Romans 12:18. Notice the phrase “as much as depends on you.” He knew that some people-problems may never be resolved. It takes two to quarrel; it takes two to reconcile. If you do your part and the problem remains, there is still a plan to follow. Don’t harbor resentment or retaliate with the weapon of silence. Do all you can to overcome evil with good (v.21), and let God work out the problem. We need to keep following the steps given in Romans 12 until our people-problems are resolved—but especially if they’re not. —Dennis J. De Haan


How To Handle People Problems (Romans 12)
Be affectionate (v.10). Be prayerfully patient (v.12).
Bless your persecutors (v.14). Be humble (v.16).
Don’t take revenge (v.19). Defeat evil with good (v.21).


The best way to conquer an enemy is with the weapon of love.





Left handed dogs are more likely to be aggressive to strangers than those that are right-pawed. Australian researchers tested a group of dogs to see which paw they preferred to use for basic tasks and then analyzed their behavioral traits. They found while there was no link with levels of excitability or attention seeking, the animals which were ‘left-pawed’ were much more likely to act aggressively towards people they did not know.

Bad news for lovers of reality shows – they’re about to become even MORE boring!

Agents and casting directors say they’re seeing a shrinking pool of people who want to appear on reality shows. Actors who used to do it for exposure now see it as a stigma, and non-professionals are wary because too many shows humiliate contestants. A TV Guide Online editor says he doubts there will a shortage of contestants, but we may see a reduction in the quality of people appearing on reality shows. ***MARLAR: … may?… (That might explain why NONE of the people on “I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here” are actual celebrities.)

Don’t forget to get married – it might keep you from being forgetful! 

(Sun) Matrimony is so good for people that it even wards off memory loss and dementia. These startling new facts were revealed in a study of 1,400 participants. Researchers began with the group at age 50 or so and then checked back 20 years later. The results of the survey showed that those who were widowed or divorced at midlife were more likely to fall victim to Alzheimer’s. Apparently, married couples provide each other with enough mental and social challenges to hold dementia at bay at least for several extra years. The scientists did include other factors that could lead to Alzheimer’s a devastating illness caused by a complex combination of genetics and environment. But the most important conclusions from the study are that maintaining an active lifestyle of healthy eating, regular exercise, mental challenges and marital status lowers the risk of developing the deadly disease.
