God is in Control – A New Book by Joseph R. Mays

After years of setbacks and negative distractions, I have finally done something I wanted to do for a long time; . 🙂 My first venture into the publishing arena is called ““. In it you will find poems that will uplift you and caress your soul and let you know that those troubles you’re going through will not last forever. The enemy doesn’t want you to succeed, but with God you WILL succeed.

America Saves Week 2009 is Here!

America Saves Week is upon us. In today’s economy, it may be hard for a lot of us to find ways to save money, but we can. There may not be a lot to spend, but you can do things like turn off the lights, turn down the thermostat or stop making repetitive trips in the car (conserve gas). These are just a few of the ways you CAN save money, but by no means all.

Visit the website () and make a plan to save and stick to it so that when the next recession hits you will say “What Recession?” 🙂

My previous post contains more information on .

I look forward to a very prosperous year for all of us in 2009.

Yours in prosperity in 2009,

God’s Voice Mail

Most of us have now learned to live with voice mail as a necessary part of our lives. Have you ever wondered what it would be like if God decided to install voice mail? Imagine praying and hearing the following:

Thank you for calling Heaven

For English press 1
Para un Espanol mecar el dos
For all other languages press 3

Please select  one of the following options:

Press 1 for request
Press 2 for thanksgiving
Press 3 for complaints
Press 4 for all others

I’m sorry, all of our Angels and Saints are busy helping other sinners right now.
However, your prayer is very important to us and we will answer it in the order it was received.

Please stay on the line.

If you would like to speak to:
God, press 1
Jesus, press 2
To the Holy Spirit, press 3

To find a loved one that has been assigned to Heaven press 4, then enter the social security number followed by the # sign. If you receive a negative response, please hang up and dial 666.

For reservations to heaven, please enter John: followed by the numbers 3:16.

For answers to nagging questions about dinosaurs, life and other planets, please wait until you arrive in heaven for specifics.

Our computer shows that you have already prayed for today, please hang up and call again tomorrow.

The office is now closed for the weekend to observe a religious holiday.

If you are calling after hours and need emergency assistance, please contact your local pastor.

Thank you and have a heavenly day.


May You Have….

Enough happiness to keep you sweet
Enough trials to keep you strong
Enough sorrow to keep you human
Enough hope to keep you happy
Enough success to keep you eager
Enough friends to give you comfort
Enough wealth to meet your needs
Enough enthusiasm to look forward to
Enough faith to banish depression
Enough determination to make each day better than yesterday

May You Have an Appreciation <br/>of the Beautiful Things in Nature

Language is No Barrier for Bloggers

One of my fellow MyBlogLog members sent me his blog address in a message today. I saw the blog before, and I was already interested because I love trains. A spark made me delve a little deeper into the page. He included an extremely important and useful widget on his page. The Google Translation widget. With it, you can translate the page/post into YOUR language of choice and read the page/post as if he wrote it in your native language. I thought this was a cool feature.

A couple of weeks ago, I saw the Google translate feature after I saw a blog post from Romania. I looked it up on Google and found out how you can view blogs written in a language other than your own. Her blog is called “AndiBob’s Blog“. It has some beautiful art on the front page and is well designed. Make sure you leave both of my friends a comment on their blog.

Thanks. Have a wonderful week and I’ll be back with another special find soon.

Yours in interesting blogs,

Joseph R. Mays

February 17, 2009 – No DTV Transition – It Has Been Delayed until June 12, 2009

Today was to be the day that digital television was to make it’s mandatory debut all across the nation. However, President Barack Obama scored another victory by requesting the transition be delayed until June 12, 2009. Millions of people would have been affected by this transition. Many homes are unprepared as they don’t have the money to buy the digital converters to interpret the digital signal into a usable signal for analog television sets. The delay allows people time to get the converters and be ready when the transition takes place on June 12, 2009.
