Grief Intervention
Day 50

There are times when the darkness of your grief may so overwhelm you that professional intervention is necessary. If any of the following are true for you, consider seeking professional intervention:
� You are dependent on alcohol or drugs
� You have recurring thoughts about suicide
� You completely withdraw from your family, friends, and colleagues
� You are still depressed after several months

Psalm 73:21-26 states: \”I realized how bitter I had become, how pained I had been by all I had seen. I was so foolish and ignorant�I must have seemed like a senseless animal to you. Yet I still belong to you; you are holding my right hand. You will keep on guiding me with your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny. Whom have I in heaven but you? I desire you more than anything on earth. My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever.\” (nlt)

Please do not hesitate to seek help for problems and needs that require professional treatment. You can ask your pastor or Christian friends for recommendations, search the Internet, or check your local phone book to find the names of Christian counselors and treatment programs.

\”Think of it�the Lord has healed me!\” (Isaiah 38:20 nlt).

Beloved Lord, grant me the ability to recognize when I need intervention and the courage to seek it out. Amen.

Subject: \”Lewinsky\” & \”Kaczynski\”

The Washington Post runs a weekly contest
in its Style section called the \”Style Invitational\”.
Back in April, they challenged readers to use the
two words \”Lewinsky\” (the intern) and \”Kaczynski\”
(the Unabomber) in the same limerick. The following
were the top three, as they were actually printed,
without censor, in the paper:

Third place:
There once was a girl named Lewinsky
Who played on a \”flute\” like Stravinsky
\”Twas \’Hail to the Chief\”
On this flute made of beef
That stole the front page from Kaczynski.

Second place:
Said Clinton to young Ms. Lewinsk y,
We don\’t want to leave clues like Kaczynski,
Since you made such a mess,
Use the hem of your dress,
And please wipe that stuff off your chinsky.

And the winning entry:
Lewinsky and Clinton have shown,
What Kaczynski must surely have known,
That an intern is better,
Than a bomb in a letter,
When deciding how best to be blown.
