"BessAnd Harry" 
(This seems unreal.)  
 
Harry Truman was a different kind of President. He probably made as many, or more important decisions regarding our nation's history as any of the other 42 Presidents preceding him. However, a measure of his greatness may rest on what he did after he left the White House. 
The only asset he had when he died was the house he lived in, which was in Independence Missouri . His wife had inherited the house from her mother and father and other than their years in the White House, they lived their entire lives there. 
When he retired from office in 1952 his income was a U.S. Army pension reported to have been $13,507.72 a year. Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and personally licking them, granted him an 'allowance' and, later, a retroactive pension of $25,000 per year. 
After President Eisenhower was inaugurated, Harry and Bess drove home to Missouri by themselves. There was no Secret Service following them. 
When offered corporate positions at large salaries, he declined, stating, "You don't want me. You want the office of the President, and that doesn't belong to me. It belongs to the American people and it's not for sale." 
Even later, on May 6, 1971, when Congress was preparing to award him the Medal of Honor on his 87th birthday, he refused to accept it, writing, "I don't consider that I have done anything which should be the reason for any award, Congressional or otherwise." 
As president he paid for all of his own travel expenses and food. 
Modern politicians have found a new level of success in cashing in on the Presidency, resulting in untold wealth. Today, many in Congress also have found a way to become quite wealthy while enjoying the fruits of their offices. Political offices are now for sale. 
Good old Harry Truman was correct when he observed, "My choices in life were either to be a piano player in a whore house or a politician. And to tell the truth, there's hardly any difference!” 
I say dig him up and clone him! 
This is one you may want your Children and Grandchildren to read. 
They won't believe this happened, but it "did". 
 
Enjoy life now! -- it has an expiration date!
 
"Are You A Pilot" 
You think you have lived to be 80 plus and know who you are,then along comes someone and blows it all to hell!An old Marine Pilot sat down at the Starbucks, still wearing his old USMC  flight jacket and ordered a cup of coffee.  
As he sat sipping his coffee, a young woman sat down next to him. She turned to the pilot and asked,Are you a real pilot?  
He replied, 'Well, I've spent my whole life flying planes, first Stearmans, then the early Grummans... flew a Wildcat and Corsair in WWII, and later in the Korean conflict, Banshees and Cougars. I've taught more than 260 people to fly and given rides to hundreds, so I guess I am a pilot, and you, what are you?  
She said, "I'm a lesbian."  
So what is a lesbian? The old man asked.  
She replied, " I love women. I spend my whole day thinking about naked women. As soon as I get up in the morning, I think about naked women. When I shower, I think about naked women. When I watch TV,  I think about naked women. It seems everything makes me think of naked women. I only want women."  
A little while later, a young man sat down on the other side of the old pilot and asked:"Are you a real pilot?"  
He replied, 'I always thought I was, but I just found out I'm a lesbian.'

The biggest challenge in life is being yourself… In a world trying to make you like everyone else. 
 
Revenge is a Poison meant for others, which we end up swallowing ourselves. 
When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace. 
 
Live each day as if it were your last because tomorrow may never come. 
I’m not cranky. I just have a violent reaction to stupid people. 
The only difference between try and triumph is a little umph.
 
We are Gods angels.
 
We are watching over you and yours.
Thank You, God, 
for giving us the opportunity to change our country back to what You intended it to be. We glorify Your Name for all You've done in bringing Donald Trump into office. We 'Thank You' for the way so many of Your people prayed, and You answered. Now we pray that You continue to equip him and his team to take the leadership in our nation. We pray that You block those who would cause confusion or disrupt this transition in any way. Bring us together again as "one nation under God", where your values are upheld and every person is blessed.  
In Jesus' Name we pray.  
Amen.
