SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'
 
My mother taught me the ways to "catch a man" and some have  lasted to this day.  I don't know how much these things influence catching a husband but I caught one.  Or did he catch me?... there's a thought.  Mama never thought the man had anything to do with the catching... smile
Mama's 10 rules to catch a Man
1.  If you go out to eat with a gentleman, always order the cheapest thing on the menu.
2.  Never eat everything on your plate.   Always leave something and to this day, I do this.
3. Never be caught without your makeup and hair combed.   Walmart wasn't invented in Mama's day.
4.  Be frugal (always a good idea whether a man is involved or not)
5. Be a great cook (I don't know how my mama got my daddy because she was not a good cook.)
6. Smile no matter what.
7.  NEVER be tired. (are you kidding me, Mama?!)
8. Keep your house spotless.
(that worked pretty good until the twins came along)
9. Make sure you wear pretty underwear.
10. ALWAY BE CLEAN
(that goes for men too !)

11 Funny Valentine's Day Jokes | Reader's Digest
http://www.rd.com/family/11-funny-valentines-day-jokes/?trkid=NL-LAUGH-120207





If grownups have trouble figuring out what love is and where to find it in the right places, then maybe they should seek the wisdom of wee bairns:

"When you fall in love, I think you're supposed to get shot with an arrow or something, but the rest of it isn't supposed to be so painful." (Harlen, 8)

"Yesterday I kissed a girl in a private place... we were behind a tree." (Cary, 7)

"On the first date, most people tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date." (Mike, 9)

"It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need somebody to clean up after them." (Lynette, 9)

"Falling in love is like an avalanche where you have to run for your life." (Roger, 9)

"Lovers hold hands to make sure their rings don't fall off because they paid good money for them." (Dave, 8)

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."- Ronald Reagan



Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation
'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'
