The Spirit FM Morning Show



Love is impossible.

Let us love one another, for is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 1 John 4:7

The Love Dare starts with a secret. And though it’s been an unspoken element throughout each day, you’ve likely grown more and more suspicious of it all the time. Now that you’re this far, it’s a secret you’re discovering for yourself, even if you haven’t exactly known how to put it into words.

The secret is this: you cannot manufacture unconditional love out of your own heart. It’s impossible. It’s beyond your capabilities. It’s beyond all our capabilities. It is something only God can do.

Perhaps you are already a believer, but you would admit that you have walked away from fellowship with God. You’re not in the Word. You’re not in prayer, maybe you’re not even in church. The love you used to feel coursing through your veins has dwindled. The truth is, you can’t live without God and you can’t love withoutHim. But there is no telling what He could do in your marriage if you put your trust in Him.

TODAY’S DARE: Look backover the Dares from previous days. Were there some that seemed impossible to you? Have you realized your need for God to change your heart and to give you the ability to love? Ask Him to show you where you stand with Him and ask for the strength and grace to ssettle your eternal destination.

Ask Yourself This Question: What do I think God is trying to tell me?


Today is Act Goofy Day, a day to do silly things just for the fun of it.

Today is National Cheese Doodle Day

1912: The Oreo cookie was born at the National Biscuit Company in New York. Since then, somebody has eaten over 62 billion of them. That’s enough to stack and reach the moon and back five times.

In The News…..

The Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is offering a pledge of $900 million to the Palestinians in Gaza. Let’s hope they don’t spend it all on rocks this time. Apparently we ran out of banks here to bail out, so now we’re bailing out the West Bank. The U.S. government guaranteed the $900 million will go directly to the Palestinian people . . . why can’t we get that deal in this country?
I am getting a little concerned though about my bank. Every time I go there and make a deposit the tellers high-five each other.

Sales Pitch
President Obama says he wants the American people to buy stocks. Why should the government be the only one buying worthless pieces of paper.

I Love What Will Rogers Said About Our Government: "We have plenty of Confidence in this country, but we are a little short of good men to place our Confidence in."

Blockbuster Bankruptcy?

Movie-rental chain Blockbuster has hired law firm Kirkland & Ellis to explore restructuring. The firm is expected to suggest several options. Maybe I won’t have to pay those late fees afterall!

Save the Animals

President Obama is overturning the Bush Administration's efforts to reduce protections for endangered species. The Obama team is looking to save all endangered species except the middle class.

Seriously, why do people do these things?

A Chinese man pulled a car by a rope attached only to his eyelids for more than five meters. Yang Guanghe was cheered and applauded at the Cherry Blossom Festival in Guangzhou as he towed the VW car. Yang said he had been practicing the stunt for more than 10 years.

"McGruff the crime dog has been roughed up.

D.C. police said the mascot, who urges children to 'take a bite out of crime,' became a victim Saturday when a bus driver punched him in the face as he handed fliers to children. Police said the 38-year-old Metro bus driver, climbed off the bus, adjusted both sideview mirrors and then swung at Officer Tyrone Hardy, who was dressed as McGruff.Police said McGruff staggered, children screamed and the bus driver drove off.

Officers quickly pulled him over and charged him with assaultMetro spokeswoman Candace Smith said the bus driver told a supervisor he was trying 'to be funny.'
Smith said the driver will undergo drug and alcohol testing. His future with the agency was under review."

Is global warming currently "on hold?"

The Discovery Channel report that some scientists are starting to take a fresh look at climate change coming off data showing that global temperatures have pretty-much flat-lined since 2001, despite what experts still say are rising greenhouse gas emissions.

A new study in Geophysical Research Letters says that global warming may have hit a "speed bump" and could go into hiding for decades. Scientists say they're baffled as to what's causing the sudden cooling.

Oh gee, I dunno. Maybe we don't know all we profess to know when it comes to climactic cycles? Maybe those scientists who say (only to be shouted down) that the Earth has gone through warming and cooling trends since the beginning of time might be right? Maybe AL GORE is crazy after all, who knows?

NEW WEBSITE: Do My Homework Dot Com

PARIS (Reuters) - "You can't do it? We're here to help," says the homepage of a new French website where children can pay for older students to do homework for them.
On (, children will be able to buy answers to simple maths problems for 5 euros ($6), while a full end-of-year presentation complete with slides and speaking notes will cost 80 euros ($100).

The website goes live Thursday morning, founder Stephane Boukris told Reuters.
"I realized there was a gap in the market. Add to that a dose of insolence, a zest of arrogance and the internet, and you have," he said.
Schoolteachers reacted with outrage.

"It is shocking. It defeats the purpose of education which is that the pupils need to learn for themselves how to do the work," said Agathe Field, a young English teacher at a secondary school in a suburb of Paris.

"It turns them into consumers. The message is that for the right price you can get the results you want. It's nonsense," she said.

Boukris defended the website, saying that the schoolchildren would still learn something if they bought homework from the site because it would come with annotations from the students explaining how they got to the final result.

"We're not just giving them the fish, we're teaching them how to fish," Boukris said in a telephone interview.

"Of course some schoolchildren might use the system to cheat, but they'll have to learn sooner or later because we won't be there on exam day," he said.
