I have an Uncle that likes to send out emails, all kinds of emails, some days I get half a dozen of them from him. Some have been repeated, and every now and again I get one that I haven't seen before. Now the reason I am writing about this is because, I really don't know, other than to pose a question for anyone that is viewing these airwaves - which actually have nothing to do with air or waves, but we'll save that for a better time like if I ever get drunk again! Anyway, I am going to now copy two of the emails I got from him, and I think I will write more after that to explain myself (Bug you gotta lot of 'splaining to do! )
The Cherokee Indian youth's rite of passage.
His father takes him into the forest, blindfolds him and leaves him alone. He is required to sit
on a stump the whole night and not remove the blindfold until the rays of the morning sun shine through it. He cannot cry out for help to anyone. Once he survives the night, he is a MAN. He cannot tell the other boys of this experience, because each lad must come into manhood on his own.
The boy is naturally terrified. He can hear all kinds of noises. Wild beasts must surely be all around him. Maybe even some human might do him harm. The wind blew the grass and earth, and shook his stump, but he sat stoically, never removing the blindfold. It would be the only way he could become a man!
Finally, after a horrific night the sun appeared and he removed his blindfold. It was then that he discovered his father sitting on the stump next to him. He had been at watch the entire night, protecting his son from harm.
We, too, are never alone. Even when we don't know it, our Heavenly Father is watching over us, sitting on the stump beside us. When trouble comes all we have to do is reach out to Him.
If you liked this story, pass it on. If not, you took off your blindfold before dawn...
WARNING ON BEER
After reading - don't forget to watch the video at the end!!!
Police are warning all men who frequent clubs, parties and local pubs to be alert and stay cautious when offered a drink from any woman. Many females use a date rape drug on the market called 'Beer.'
The drug is found in liquid form and is available anywhere. It comes in bottles, cans, or from taps and in large 'kegs'. Beer is used by female sexual predators at parties and bars to persuade their male victims to go home and sleep with them. A woman needs only to get a guy to consume a few units of Beer and then simply ask him home for no strings attached sex.
Men are rendered helpless against this approach. After several beers, men will often succumb to the desires to sleep with horrific looking women to whom they would never normally be attracted. After drinking beer, men often awaken with only hazy memories of exactly what happened to them the night before, often with just a vague feeling that 'something bad' occurred.
At other times these unfortunate men are swindled out of their life's savings, in a familiar scam known as 'a relationship'. In extreme cases, the female may even be shrewd enough to entrap the unsuspecting male into a longer term form of servitude and punishment referred to as 'marriage.' Men are much more susceptible to this scam after beer is administered and sex is offered by the predatory females.
Please! Forward this warning to every male you know. If you fall victim to this 'Beer' scam and the women administering it, there are male support groups where you can discuss the details of your shocking encounter with similarly victimized men. For the support group nearest you, just look up 'Golf Courses' in the phone book.

Now, what do you make of these two, obviosly different emails? What kind of man is my uncle? Is he the God-fearing and loving man from the first email? Or, is he the shallow, chauvinistic pig from the second? Truth be told, I really don't know since I haven't seen the man in thirty years, but don't you want to know? Maybe?
I always try to select which emails to forward and to whom I forward them to. For instance, I have another uncle, the above uncle's younest brother, who is only three years older than me (yes imagine the generation gap, just inside that immediate family). He actually sent out an email requesting that any emails with any kind of religious connotations, not be sent to him. So, I respect that. Actually, I try not to forward too many emails his way anyway but that is not the point. Just because I'm an isolationist... Actually, I'm not really, that is a topic that I should explore in greater detail at another time - if I can. :-)
Anyway, happy Thursday to you! Just spent an hour with Jesus and I feel great! I also feel tired, but I will get over it.
Now, I should get to work, don't you think?
