"A merry heart doeth good like a medicine... (Proverbs 17:22)."
"Words Women Use--and What They Mean!?!"FINE
This is the word we use at the end of any argument that we feel we are right about but need to shut you up. Never use fine to describe how a woman looks. This will cause you to have one of those arguments.
This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that your football game is going to last before you take out the trash, so I feel that it's an even trade.
This means something and you should be on your toes. "Nothing" is usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside out, upside down, and backwards. "Nothing" usually signifies an argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with the word "Fine".
GO AHEAD (with raised eyebrows)
This is a dare. One that will result in a woman getting upset over "Nothing" and will end with the word "Fine".
GO AHEAD (normal eyebrows)
This means "I give up" or "do what you want because I don't care". You will get a raised eyebrow "Go Ahead" in just a few minutes, followed by "Nothing" and "Fine" and she will talk to you in about "Five Minutes" when she cools off.
This is not actually a word, but is still often a verbal statement very misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are an idiot at that moment and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over "Nothing".
Again, not a word, but a verbal statement. "Soft Sighs" are one of the few things that some men actually understand. She is content. Your best bet is to not move or breathe and she will stay content.
This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can say to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before paying you retributions for what ever it is that you have done. "That's Okay" is often used with the word "Fine" and used in conjunction with a raised eyebrow "Go Ahead". At some point in the near future when she has plotted and planned, you are going to be in some mighty big trouble.
This is not a statement, it is an offer. A woman is giving you the chance to come up with whatever excuse or reason you have for doing whatever it is that you have done. You have a fair chance to tell the truth, so be careful and you shouldn't get a "That's Okay".
A woman is thanking you. Do not faint, just say you're welcome.
THANKS A LOT
This is much different than "Thanks". A woman will say, "Thanks A Lot" when she is really ticked off at you. It signifies that you have hurt her in some callous way, and will be followed by the "Loud Sigh". Be careful not to ask what is wrong after the "Loud Sigh", as she will only tell you "Nothing".

"High Value Targets"
It's probably a common term in the military, but I had never heard it until I saw an interview with some American soldiers working to establish an air base at Kandahar in Afghanistan. They were busy finding and clearing land mines, repairing and expanding the runway - and at the same time, carefully defending their perimeter. The soldiers pointed out that there were still Taliban and Al-Qaeda fighters hiding out - and waiting for an opportunity to do some serious damage. That's when one soldier referred to what he called "high value targets." He said the enemy still had the capability to take out some "high value target" like an incoming aircraft, for example.--Copyright (c) 2002, Ron Hutchcraft. Reprinted with permission.
Well, I'm Ron Hutchcraft and I want to have A WORD WITH YOU today about "High Value Targets."
Now, it makes sense - an enemy does not have unlimited capability or ammunition, so he's going to look for a high value target to attack. Especially if that enemy is the ultimate terrorist, the devil himself. He takes careful aim - and he devotes special attention - to bringing down what he considers a high value target. Like you, perhaps.
It's interesting that the familiar verse about the devil "prowling around like a lion, looking for someone to devour" is in a passage that is primarily about Christian leaders. Those who are making a difference - or are about to make a difference - for Jesus Christ become special targets for enemy attack.
In Acts 19, the sons of a Jewish priest watch how Paul casts out demons in the name of Jesus, so they decide to try it. The Bible says, "The evil spirit answered them, 'Jesus I know, and I know about Paul, but who are you?" (Acts 19:15) The demon-possessed man then jumped on those boys and nearly beat them to death. Notice - there are names that have made it onto hell's "watch list" - Paul was on that list. In a way, it is one of life's great honors to have made it onto hell's target list, to be considered by the devil someone who could do a lot of damage to his plans. And what an insult to realize that they've never heard of you in hell!
So, who does Satan consider high value targets? Well, we can't know for sure, but we can make some Biblically educated guesses. A parent who is raising his or her children to love and serve Jesus Christ ... someone who has stepped up to spiritual leadership or who is considering it ... any believer who is - or who could be - a warrior for Christ, who could end up leading people away from hell and toward heaven. Your name may never be widely known on earth, but your name may be very well known in hell, because of the difference you're making.
Which leads us to Ephesians 6, beginning with verse 11, our word for today from the Word of God. "Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes ... Put on the full armor of God so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground." You cannot afford to be spiritually careless - about what you watch, what you listen to, what you say, what you laugh at, what you allow into your mind and heart. You cannot afford to be careless about how you're raising your family, how you're handling your money, about telling the truth, about avoiding temptation. You are more valuable to the work of God than you know - and more in Satan's sights than you know.
If you stand your ground, put on God's armor and keep your eyes on Jesus, you have nothing to fear from your enemy's artillery. But you need to remember that you are not on a peacetime mission where you can be casual and careless - we're at war and you are a target. Don't hand the enemy any ammunition to shoot you with. It's not just your life that's at stake - it's all those lives your life is going to touch.
