For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.
One morning the husband returns afte...r several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors, and reads her book.
Along comes a game warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says, "Good morning Ma'am. What are you doing?"
"Reading a book," she replies, (thinking, "Isn't that obvious?")
"You're in a restricted fishing area," he informs her.
"I'm sorry officer, but I'm not fishing, I'm reading."
"Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I'll have to take you in and write you up."
"If you do that, I'll have to charge you with sexual assault," says the woman.
"But I haven't even touched you," says the game warden.
"That's true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment."
"Have a nice day ma'am," and he left.
MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads. It's likely she can also think.

"Level Seven," a witch's recorded voice stated cheerfully, "Department of Magical Games and Sports."
Sirius tapped his foot impatiently. Remus shifted. Narcissa sighed.
"Level Six, Department of Magical Transportation."
Rookwood ground the heel of his boot into the inner office memo he swore had tried to take out his eye.
"Level Five, Department of International Magical Cooperation."
The sirens continued to sound and Adeline growled in frustration. "Why don't they try to stop us already?"
"Level Four, Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures."
"Oh! Let's stop here!" Sirius declared with glee, rubbing his hands together sinisterly and twirling his wand.
Remus shot him a quelling, yet thankful look, his gold eyes shining with maliciousness and showing quite clearly how much he'd love to allow Sirius to go on a rampage through that particular department.
"Level Three, Department of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes."
"You'd think they'd at least stop the lift or something," Jugson mused, receiving a nod from Mulciber.
"Level Two, Department of Magical Law Enforcement."
"No," Remus stated as Sirius opened his mouth, "We're not stopping."
"Level One, Administrative Offices, including the office of the Minister for Magic."
Rookwood threw up his hands in relief. "Finally!"
"Please enter your administrative passcode."
"What?" Sirius asked in confusion.
"Oh, for the love of Merlin!" Remus cried, shouldering everyone out of the way. He slammed his hands into the doors with a resounding clang, claws gouging holes in them, and began to pull them open with obvious effort.
"You know," Rookwood said conversationally, "there's got to be at least a dozen spells on those doors to prevent them from being forced."
"Tell that to the doors," Sirius replied as they were ripped open by the frustrated werewolf, revealing a narrow, and suspiciously empty, corridor beyond.
Remus stood to the side of the lift, glared at them with flashing eyes and pointed a finger down the corridor.
"Out!" he demanded with a feral growl. They all rushed to comply.
"Remind me never to piss him off," Rookwood whispered to Sirius. Murmurs of agreement came from the others. - From Curse of Fate by Mistress Nika
“Harry looked at me, thanked me for everything, and ran off. I yelled for him to come back, but he ignored everything, and ran for the ruins of James and Lily’s house.”
Poppy frowned. “But wasn’t that the idea?”
The headmaster nodded violently, “YES! But not without backup! By then both sides had split up and smaller fights had started. He just ran through them, shooting occasional spells to keep people off his back, and then he ran into three Dementors.”
Dumbledore shot a glare at the still sleeping young man. “He is SO grounded!”
Poppy burst into laughter. “Oh yes, the Prophet would have a field day with that: ‘Hero of the Wizarding World Grounded for Fulfilling Destiny.’”- From Six Years to Life: Song of Hogwarts by Laume
"I suppose so," Nakamori mused, "But still... it worries me. In any case, none of the eight survivors have said a word... we're still interrogating, though..."
"Some of them are talking," Jodie said, striding into the room. "They don't know a huge amount, but one's been in their version of the Kid Task Force for fifteen years, he'll have something useful to say if anybody does..."
"How on earth did you get them to talk?" Nakamori said in surprise. Jodie shrugged.
"I just told them that if they didn't want to talk to the Japanese cops," she explained, "then I'd put them in FBI custody and then we'd interrogate them like we do in the States."
Everyone was quiet for a moment, thinking of what came naturally at that suggestion, before Shinichi finally said tentatively, "so... how do you interrogate people in the States?"
Jodie shrugged. "In English." - From When Pandora's Box is Opened by mangaluva
Another growl. "You have no sense of self-preservation, you know that?"
"Thank you, pot-san, this kettle will take that under advisement."
"Hate you so much, Kudo..." - From Nerves of Steel by Ellen Brand
It wasn't hard to know when Kudo woke up, Saguru mused. Despite the fact that he'd been placed in the bunkroom, and the six of them were down in the living room with the stereo playing, the lecture Hattori was giving the other boy was clearly audible, if not always intelligible. Saguru thought he caught "idiotic," "self-destructive" and "all the self-preservation skills of an octopus in a takoyaki restaurant" somewhere in there, however. Hattori had a gift for colorful turns of phrase. - From Shinigami Tears by Ellen Brand
While Itachi talked to the guards at the gate, the five of them donned the latest in spy and camouflage gear- bushes.
The five bushes snuck into Konoha without being noticed…not even by the ANBU assembly that was standing right there, at the entrance, watching for suspicious activity.
One ANBU noticed though.
The Pein bush froze as the others continued by.
"Where do you think you're going, bush? Do you have a 'flora and fauna' permit."
The Pein bush sighed, "Um…yes…?"
The ANBU stared for a second then nodded, "Alright then. Go catch up with your family." - From Bunny! by silvablaze
A teenage girl about 17 named Diane had gone to visit some friends one evening and time passed quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year. She ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she lived only a few blocks away.
As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger. When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to her house, she decided to take it. However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were waiting for her. She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection. Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped round her, she felt as though someone was walking with her. When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.
The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been raped in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been there. Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep. Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station. She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story. The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup to see if she could identify him. She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before. When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed. The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her. She asked if they would ask the man one question. Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her. When the policeman asked him, he answered, "Because she wasn't alone. She had two tall men walking on either side of her." Amazingly, whether you believe or not, you're never alone. Did you know that 98 of teenagers will not stand up for God, and 93 of the people that read this won't repost it?
Repost this if you truly believe in God.
PS: God is always there in your heart and loves you no matter what,
HELL EXPLAINED BY A CHEMISTRY STUDENT
The following is an actual question given on University of Washington chemistry mid term.
The answer by one student was so 'profound', that the professor shared it with his colleagues via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well:
Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?
Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant.
One student, however, wrote the following:
First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different religions that exist in the world today.
Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added.
This gives two possibilities:
1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.
2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.
So which is it?
If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year that, 'It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you,' and take into account the fact that I slept with her last night, then number two must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already frozen over. The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore, extinct leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine being, which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting 'Oh my God.'
