Terry: WE WANT TO TAKE

THE LAST FEW MINUTES THAT WE

HAVE TO ANSWER SOME OF YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

Pat: AND WE'RE GOING TO

TALK ABOUT THE CASE OF THE

COCKATOO.

Terry: TAKE NOTES.

YOU'RE GOING TO WANT TO KNOW

THE ANSWER TO THIS.

JOE SAYS, "I GAVE MY

COCKATOO PARENT TO A LADY ON

CONSIGNMENT TO SELL FOR ME

BACK IN 2002.

AFTER SEVERAL MONTHS I TRIED

TO CALL HER, BUT HER PHONE

NUMBER WAS DISCONNECTED.

I GOT LUCKY AND GOT HER NEW

NUMBER, AND HER FIRST WORDS

WERE, HOW DID YOU GET THIS

NUMBER.

I FORGAVE HER FOR STEALING

MY $700 BIRD.

WOULD IT BE WRONG IF I SUED

HER FOR PAYMENT?"

Pat: JOE, GIVE IT A

REST.

SHE'S GOT THE BIRD, AND

SHE'S GIVING YOU THE BIRD.

SO JUST TAKE IT, DO YOU KNOW

WHAT I'M SAYING.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: OH, MERCY.

I MUST HAVE DONE SOMETHING

TERRIBLE AS A CHILD.

Pat: HOW DID I GET YOU

INTO THIS?

Terry: I DON'T KNOW.

SHE SAYS, "MY HUSBAND AND I

ARE ON THE VIRGE OF

DIVORCE.

HE WANTS THE DIVORCE.

I DON'T.

TRYING TO FIND A WAY TO SAVE

MY MARRIAGE HAS BECOME ALL

CONSUMING.

I KNOW I'M SUPPOSED TO PUT

GOD FIRST IN ALL THINGS.

HOW CAN I DO THAT WHEN MY

EVERY WAKING THOUGHT IS

ABOUT OUR PROBLEMS AND HOW

TO FIX THEM.

WHEN I PRAY, I THANK GOD FOR

ALL THINGS, BUT MY PRAYERS

ALWAYS TURN TOWARDS MY

MARRIAGE."

Pat: YOU KNOW

SOMETHING, YOU'VE GOT THE

ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION IN

WHAT YOU SAID.

UNLESS YOU TURN THAT THING

OVER TO THE LORD, HE'S NOT

GOING TO FIX IT FOR YOU.

SO YOU TURN IT OVER TO HIM.

I REMEMBER A LONG TIME AGO,

WHEN MY OLDEST SON WAS

BURNING UP WITH A FEVER.

I FEARED BRAIN DAMAGE.

HE WAS, LIKE, COMATOSE, AND

IT WAS A TERRIBLE MOMENT.

AND I WAS BEGGING GOD TO DO

SOMETHING, BEGGING HIM.

AND SUDDENLY THE LORD SAID,

YOU KNOW, DON'T YOU REALIZE

I LOVE THAT CHILD A THOUSAND

TIMES MORE THAN YOU DO.

AND AT THAT MOMENT, I

CONSCIOUSLY SURRENDERED HIM

INTO THE LOVE OF GOD, AND

BANG --

Terry: THE FEVER

BROKE.

IT IS ALL ABOUT SURRENDER.

Pat: INSTANT.

BUT YOU'VE GOT TO SURRENDER

YOUR MARRIAGE.

GIVE IT TO THE LORD AND TAKE

YOUR HAND OFF OF IT AND GET

ON WITH LIFE.

AS LONG AS YOU HOLD IT, GOD

WILL SAY, OKAY, YOU FIX IT.

GIVE IT TO HIM.

Terry: ANGELA SAYS,

"I'M A 45-YEAR-OLD DIVORCED

CHRISTIAN WOMAN WITH NO

CHILDREN.

I'VE BEEN DIVORCED FOR ABOUT

SEVEN YEARS, AND I HAVE NOT

BEEN ON A DATE SINCE THEN.

I HANG OUT WITH MY MOM.

I REFUSE TO USE ON-LINE

DATING SERVICES.

I WOULD LOVE TO GO OUT ON A

DATE, BUT SOMETIMES I FEEL

LIKE I'M TOO OLD AND NOT

ATTRACTIVE TO ANYONE.

I DO NOT WANT TO MAKE THE

MISTAKE OF MARRYING THE

WRONG MAN AGAIN.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

Pat: TURN IT OVER TO

THE LORD.

YOU THINK OF YOURSELF AS

DAMAGED GOODS.

YOU'RE NOT.

YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL.

YOU'RE GOD'S CHILD.

IF HIS PLAN FOR YOU IS TO

FIND A LOVING COMPANION TO

LIVE YOUR LIFE WITH, HE'LL

SHOW IT TO YOU.

BUT STOP THINKING THAT

YOU'RE DAMAGED GOODS.

YOU'RE NOT.

BUT YOU'VE GOT TO GET OUT.

BE HAPPY AND ACT HAPPY.

AS LONG AS YOUR FEELING

SORRY AND YOU'VE, YOU KNOW,

PULLED THE BLINDS AND YOU'RE

LIVING IN DARKNESS, AND YOU

GO AROUND WITH THAT CLOUD

ALL OVER YOU -- BRIGHTEN

UP.

OPEN UP TO THE SUNSHINE.

YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL IN GOD'S

EYES.
