Birth Stones & Colors

According to the Gemological Institute of America (ref. G.I.A. Colored Stones Course, Assignment #41, "Birthstones"), the origin of the Western system of birthstones can be traced to the Breastplate of the High Priest. In the Bible, Moses handed down rules governing the Breastplate of Judgment which contained 12 gems, each engraved with the name of one of the twelve tribes of Israel. Another arrangement of the 12 gems is described in the Book of Revelation as the foundation stones of the New Jerusalem. The order in which these 12 gems were given was used to determine the succession of birthstones for the months.╩ On August 12, 1912 the American National Retail Jewelers' Association arbitrarily substituted a new list of birthstones, adding to or changing many of the traditional stones to others which were more commercially viable. In 1938 the American Gem Society adopted this list (with the addition of citrine) for use by its members. In 1952 a variation of this list was approved by the American National Retail Jewelers Association (ANRJA), National Jewelers Association (NJA), and the American Gem Society (AGS). Thus the official list of birthstones was established as follows:

On Staying Power

Excellence in Performance

(Print On Staying Power Interview)

From an interview with basketball coach John Wooden.

John Wooden is the only man ever enshrined in the basketball Hall of Fame as both player and coach. He retired after 40 years of coaching, leaving a record unparalleled in American sport.

During his 27 years as coach of UCLA, his teams never had a losing season. In his last 12 years there, they won ten national championships, seven of those in succession, and still holds the world's record for longest winning streak in any major sport - 88 games bridging four seasons.

Like most coaches, my program revolved around fundamentals, conditioning, and teamwork. But I differed radically in several respects. I never tried to get my team "up" for a game emotionally, I never worried about how our opponents would play us, and I never talked about winning.

Peaks Create Valleys

I believe that for every artificial peak you create, you also create valley's. When you get too high for anything, emotion takes over and consistency of performance is lost and you will be unduly affected when adversity comes. I emphasized constant improvement and steady performance.

I have often said, "The mark of a true champion is to always perform near your own level of competency." We were able to do that by never being satisfied with the past and always planning for what was to come. I believe that failure to prepare is preparing to fail. This constant focus on the future is one reason we continued staying near the top once we got there.

Develop yourself, don't worry about opponents

I probably scouted opponents less than any coach in the country. Less than most high school coaches. I don't need to know that this forward likes to drive the outside. You're not supposed to give the outside to any forward whenever he tries it. Sound offensive and defensive principles apply to any style of play.

Rather than having my teams prepare to play a certain team each week, I prepared to play anybody. I didn't want my players worrying about the other fellows. I wanted them executing the sound offensive and defensive principles we taught in practice.

There's no pillow as soft as clear conscience

To me, success isn't outscoring someone, it's the peace of mind that comes from self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best. That's something each individual must determine for himself. You can fool others, but you can't fool yourself.

Many people are surprised to learn that in 27 years at UCLA, I never once talked about winning. Instead I would tell my players before games, "When it's over, I want your head up. And there's only one way your head can be up, that's for you to know, not me, that you gave the best effort of which you're capable. If you do that, then the score doesn't really matter, although I have a feeling that if you do do that, the score will be to your liking." I honestly, deeply believe that in not stressing winning as such, we won more than we would have if I'd stressed outscoring opponents.

Why do so many people dread adversity, when it is only through adversity that we grow stronger?

There's no great fun, satisfaction or joy derived from doing something that's easy. Failure is never fatal, but failure to change might be.

Your strength as an individual depends on, and will be in direct proportion to, how you react to both praise and criticism. If you become too concerned about either, the effect on you is certain to be adverse.

The main ingredient of stardom

I always taught players that the main ingredient of stardom is the rest of the team. It's amazing how much can be accomplished if no one cares who gets the credit. That's why I was as concerned with a player's character as I was with his ability.

While it may be possible to reach the top on one's profession on sheer ability, it is impossible to stay there without hard work and character. One's character may be quite different form one's reputation.

Your character is what you really are. Your reputation is only what others think you are. I made a determined effort to evaluate character. I looked for young men who would play the game hard, but clean, and who would always be trying to improve themselves to help the team. Then, if their ability warranted it, the championships would take care of themselves.

FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.

Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.

In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.

Sometimes there were two sets of footprints.

Other times there were one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life

When I was suffering from anguish, sorrow, or defeat,

I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord,

"You promised me, Lord,

That if I followed you,

you would walk with me always.

But I noticed that during the most trying periods of my life

There have only been one set of prints in the sand.

Why, When I have needed you most,

you have not been there for me?"

 

The Lord replied,

"The times when you have seen only one set of footprints

That is when I carried you."

Food for the Hungry

Since 1971, it has been our mission to enable people to be the incarnated hands and feet of Jesus -- to follow him into the pain of our world. Food for the Hungry is an international organization that exists to fulfill a God-given mandate to help people overcome both physical and spiritual hungers (Isaiah 58). We follow the example provided by Jesus himself as he went from community to community, preaching, teaching, and healing people along the way (Matthew 9:35-38). Our efforts include integrated, child-focused development and relief programs in more than 25 countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Development efforts include programs that equip entire communities with the tools they need to pull themselves from poverty. Additional relief efforts

Josh McDowell Ministries

While a college student in the early '60s, Josh McDowell was challenged by a group of Christian students to examine the claims of Christianity.

Josh was sure that Christianity was worthless, but accepted the challenge. He╩ focused his energy on discrediting the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Instead, he discovered compelling historical evidence for the reliability of the New Testament and the Resurrection.

He was convinced intellectually, but struggled with the idea of giving control of his life over to Jesus. One night, unable to sleep, Josh asked Christ to come into his life and forgive his sins.

In the months following that decision, Josh noticed a change in his life. The biggest area of change was in his relationship with his╩father - the town alcoholic. Josh's hatred for him turned to love by the power of God at work in his life.

Soon after, he began speaking at churches╩ and evangelistic meetings. In 1964, after going to Talbot Theological Seminary,╩ Josh joined the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ. His Campus Lecture Series began in 1970, and soon after Josh began publishing books and recording his╩talks on tape.

Today, Josh is a popular youth speaker, having spoken to more than seven million young people in 84 countries, including 700 university and college campuses. Josh has authored or co-authored 52 books. He also has a weekly radio and television show.

Josh and his wife╩ Dottie have been married for more than 25 years and have four children. They╩ live in Dallas, home of the Josh McDowell Ministry.

"Few individuals have had as wide an impact for the Christian faith on university audiences as Josh McDowell.╩ He has a unique ability to deal clearly and directly with ... issues facing college students."

Billy Graham

"Every time Josh speaks, hardened skeptics turn to Christ. His approach is both well-reasoned and personable."

Bill Bright Founder and President Campus Crusade for Christ╩ International
