Random Prayer Requests

Hey y'all,
So I was just wondering if you guys would pray for these people:
My family and I, because we are all really sick.
My neighbor, Cory. He is not a Christian, and I would really appreciate prayer for him. He recently went through a divorce, and I feel bad whenever I think of him.

Here is a site I wanted to share with you guys: http://www.dafont.com/theme.php?cat=112
It's this really cool site where you can download all these awesome fonts for free. *sigh* again, I don't know if I talked about this site before or not.
The process of downloading fonts is REALLY complicated, and I will try to explain it to you, though I don't know if any of you are going to care or not.
Okay, so you go to this site and look at the font you want to download. Then you click the button that says: Download PC/ Mac OS X
A window is going to come up and it says at the top in bold font: Do you want to open or save this file? At the bottom, three buttons read: Open Save Cancel
Click 'Save'. Then another window comes up and you want to save this file in a place where you can easily find it.
Then go down to the lower left corner of your computer screen. A button (usually green, at least for PCs) that reads 'Start' sits there. Click that button, and a scroll thing will come up. Put your mouse over the button 'Settings', and then click 'Control Panel', a button on a small screen that will come up when you put your mouse of the 'Settings' button. A window will come up. Minimize that, and click 'Start' again. Put your mouse over the button 'Documents' and look ALL the way to the top of the small screen that will come up. You should see a 'My Documents'. Click on that, and another window will come up. Then go to the place where you saved that font file. I made a folder for my fonts, titled, obviously: FONTS. You should find the font file in the place where you saved it. If you don't, go back to http://www.dafont.com/theme.php?cat=112 and save your file again in a place where you can remember it. Open the file, and there will be another few files. Highlight the one that has 'True Type Font' under the 'Type' column. Then right click, and a scroll will come up, reading Open, Cut, Copy, Delete, Properties. Click 'Cut'. Then go up one file, and you'll come back to the 'FONT' file. I have another sub-folder called 'Fontie Savie Thingie' (:D) Open that, and right-click in that file. Another scroll will come up, and click 'Paste'. You should see the font appear in the sub-folder (in my case, titled Fontie Savie Thingie [:D]) Now go back to the Control Panel, which you minimized. If you're in the Catagory view, then click the button 'Appearence and Themes'. If you're in the Classic view, then click the button 'Fonts' (you'll have to look hard-the buttons are tiny). If you're in the Catagory view, another grey window will come up after you click 'Appearence and Themes'. Off to the left side, a button (right above the buttons 'Mouse Pointers' 'High Contrast' and 'User Account Picture') reading 'Fonts' will be there. Click that button, and a white window will come up with all these big font names on it. Look up to the top, and a line of titles will read: File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools, Help. Click the button 'File', and a drop scroll will appear. Click 'Install New Font'. Okay, this part is tricky. You need to FIND the file in which you left your font file (in my case, Fontie Savie Thingie [:D sorry, I just find that name amusing :D]), and then highlight the name of the font you want to install. Then click the button (above the buttons: Close and Select All) OK. A small window will come up, showing the progress of the font downloading. On my computer, it takes like one second to download, but I don't know about the rest of your computers.
Now go to your email or Word, or whatever, and use your font!

I don't know how many of you people are going to actually be able to figure out how to do it-it took me a while to get it-but have fun! I have downloaded about a MILLION fonts, and am SO glad that I found http://www.dafont.com/theme.php?cat=112. :]
Love to y'all,
Bekah

BEKAH! I agree that dafont is an awesome place to get fonts, but it can also be dangerous. You could accidentally download a virus that could corrupt your computer. Make sure to let people know that, before they download a virus that ruins their computer and eventually their lives.

I stopped downloading fonts awhile ago, because its dangerous. Maybe when I get my own computer I'll download a couple...but it's not safe to do on a family computer, with taxes and all sorts of stuff saved. Plus some virus are...yuck, just make sure to let people know that its not completely safe.
