~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Winston Churchill had the following words of Abe Lincoln framed on the wall of his office: "I do the very best I can, I mean to keep going. If the end brings me out all right, then what is said against me won't matter. If I'm wrong, ten angels swearing I was right won't make a difference." - Bits & Pieces, April 29, 1993

Beware of anything that competes with your loyalty to Jesus Christ. The greatest competitor of true devotion to Jesus is the service we do for Him. It is easier to serve than to pour out our lives completely for Him. The goal of the call of God is His satisfaction, not simply that we should do something for Him. We are not sent to do battle for God, but to be used by God in His battles. Are we more devoted to service than we are to Jesus Christ himself? - Oswald Chambers, "My Utmost for His Highest," An Undated Edition In Today's Language

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

BURMA SHAVE SIGNS - Part 1 of 3 [7-30, 8-10]

Passing cars
When you can't see
May get you
A glimpse
Of eternity

Said farmer Brown
Who's bald
On top
Wish I could
Rotate the crop

Paper hangers
With the hives
Now can
Shave with
Carving knives

The midnight ride
Of Paul
For beer
Led to a
Warmer hemisphere

Cleveland Amory tells this story about Judge John Lowell of Boston. One morning the judge was at breakfast, his face hidden behind the morning paper. A frightened maid tiptoed into the room and whispered something in Mrs. Lowell's ear. The lady paled slightly, then squared her shoulders resolutely and said, "John, the cook has burned the oatmeal, and there is no more in the house. I am afraid that this morning, for the first time in seventeen years, you will have to go with out your oatmeal."

The judge, without putting down his paper, answered, "It's all right, my dear. Frankly, I never cared much for it anyhow." - Bits & Pieces, March 4, 1993

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Yesterday's Trivia read: "What's the deepest known cave? . . . Lechuguilla Cave, near Carlsbad, New Mexico, goes down at least 1,571 feet (479 meters), making it the deepest known cave on Earth." Correction: Lechuguilla Cave is the deepest known cave in the "United States." The deepest known cave in the "world" is in Salzburg, Austria. It's name is "Lamprechtsofen-Vogelshacht" and it is 5,354 feet deep (1632 m) . You can visit the online resource that has photographs taken inside the cave by the Polish exploration team who plumbed the awesome depths!
