5. His Moral Fiber. Oh man what a saint. Besides doing a “little drinking” in his youth, this guy is so morally pure I want to tellrepparttar whole world.

For example, laudingrepparttar 118173 immorality of same sex marriage to secure his conservative voter base. That’s right George, when your administration fails to scare everyone with its vague terrorist threat alerts,repparttar 118174 next step is to playrepparttar 118175 family values card. The president is probably thinking, if I can’t scarerepparttar 118176 American people into re-electing me by raisingrepparttar 118177 terrorist alert when it suits me, I will remind them about those men and women who get a thrill out of drilling each other instead ofrepparttar 118178 opposite sex. We humorists call such behaviorrepparttar 118179 incorrigible jabs of a real GIRLIE MAN.

Forrepparttar next 2 hours, I searched in vain for Philip. He was nowhere to be found in that hospital. I was beginning to think I was inrepparttar 118171 wrong hospital. Then, fortunately for me, I remembered that although everyone called him Philip, it was his middle name. His first name was Michael.

It is amazing how usingrepparttar 118172 right name opens up allrepparttar 118173 right doors. In a few minutes, I had locatedrepparttar 118174 ever-elusive Michael Philip Jones. He was in room 622 and I spent a few minutes with him reading some scripture and then had a time of prayer with him.

Walking out Philip quietly said, “Thanks, pastor, you’ll never know what this means to me.” This is usually allrepparttar 118175 gratification a pastor really needs.

I left Philip’s room with a marvelous feeling of accomplishment and headed forrepparttar 118176 parking lot and my car. Pulling out ofrepparttar 118177 hospital parking lot that old nagging feeling returned. I could not forrepparttar 118178 life of me figure out what I was missing. I just knew it was something.

As I pulled into my driveway, I glanced at my watch. It was just a little after 7:30. Reaching forrepparttar 118179 door to exitrepparttar 118180 car, it finally dawned on me what I had forgotten. The ice cream cake. There it was onrepparttar 118181 front seat and I noticed around one corner there was some leakage. I openedrepparttar 118182 lid and, as I thought,repparttar 118183 ice cream cake was completely melted with tiny bits of colored icing floating onrepparttar 118184 top. The ice cream cake had been in my hot car for almost 2½ hours.

The inevitable had become uneatable.

Carefully, so not to spill anything on my car seat, I carriedrepparttar 118185 thawed ice cream cake surprise, into my wife who thought itrepparttar 118186 funniest thing she had seen in a lifetime.

Intentions are good, even those that do not turn out as expected. It truly isrepparttar 118187 thought that counts in many cases.

Putting her resourceful mind torepparttar 118188 task,repparttar 118189 Mistress ofrepparttar 118190 Parsonage pulled this disaster out ofrepparttar 118191 proverbial dumpster and rescuedrepparttar 118192 evening as only she could. The incident reminded me of what Paul,repparttar 118193 Apostle said. "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me" (Philippians 4:13 KJV). If you don’t give in or give up, there is always a solution to every quandary.

Romance is two people in love with two straws sipping liquefied ice cream cake out ofrepparttar 118194 same box byrepparttar 118195 light of flickering candles. Romance is not defined in a day or even an incident, but a relationship that endures these things and more.

Much more.
