"All the water in the world
However hard it tried,
Could never, never sink a ship
Unless it got inside.

"All the hardships of this world,
Might wear you pretty thin,
But they won't hurt you, one least bit
Unless you let them in."

"Suggested prayer: "Dear God, when I am prone to worry, remind me to choose to trust in you, surrender my worries to you, and not keep taking them back. Gratefully in Jesus' name. Amen."

"The Greeks were a highly sculptured people and without them we wouldn't have history. The Greeks also had myths. A myth is a female moth."

"In the Olympic Games, Greeks ran races, jumped, hurled the biscuits and threw the java."

"In midevil times most people were alliterate. The greatest writer of the futile ages was Chaucer, who wrote many poems and verses and also wrote literature."

"Writing at the same time as Shakespeare was Miguel Cervantes. He wrote Donkey Hote. The next great author was John Milton. Milton wrote Paradise Lost. Then his wife died and he wrote Paradise Regained."

It is reported that while talking to a very wealthy man about his soul and getting nowhere, Billy Sunday once remarked, "Look, you can't take it with you, and even if you could, it would just burn."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

There is a German law that allows people to defend their dead relatives' reputations.

In Munich, Germany, three theologians sued the Protestant and Roman Catholic churches for bringing the name of Christ into disrepute. The theologians, who said that they were "brothers in spirit" of Christ, argued that the churches' role in wars had disqualified them from calling themselves "Christian."

The judge threw out the case on the grounds that the German constitution guaranteed religious freedom - but not before he pointed out that, since Christians believe Christ rose from the dead, his "brothers" had no right to bring a case on his behalf.
