Do not wonder, brethren, that the world hates you.
We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love abides in death.
Any one who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.
By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
But if any one has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him?
Little children, let us not love in word or speech but in deed and in truth.
I John 3, 13-18

I kept my faith, even when I said, "I am greatly afflicted";
I said in my consternation, "Men are all a vain hope."
What shall I render to the LORD for all his bounty to me?
I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD,
O LORD, I am thy servant, the son of thy handmaid. Thou hast loosed my bonds.
I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving and call on the name of the LORD.
Psalm 116, 10-13, 16-17

"This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.

Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
You are my friends if you do what I command you.
No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide; so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.
This I command you, to love one another.
John 15, 12-17

Theodore 'Hickey' Hickman: Scratch neck
We-ell, happy birthday to you, Doc!

That's quite the collection you've got, too. Can't say that I take much out of the Bible--not for what you'd call honest purposes, anyway--but you've got some good ones, there. Worth another look.

You're a good guy, Doc, and I really would like you to have a helluva day. You just let me know if there's anything I can do.

John beams. I know not everyone is religious, and some of those I love best have not been. Those were the readings for this my birthday. http://www.ewtn.com/devotionals/inspiration.htm#14 Had I had opportunity to select them I could not have done better.

Perhaps you would like some pecan pie with peach sauce, and a lemonade? I shall be offering it around later, but as you are first I would be very pleased if I could offer you something.
