~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

There is nothing wrong with men possessing riches. The wrong comes when riches possess men. - Billy Graham

Two young men on the island of Formosa became congenial companions. One was a Christian, the other was not. The former invited his pal to an evangelistic service, and after much persuasion he went along. At the close of the meeting he was introduced to the preacher and was given a copy of the New Testament.

This he was inclined to refuse, but, considering that the soft, thin paper would be ideal for wrapping cigarettes, he took it home and began using the pages for this purpose. But, somehow, as he came to the Gospel of John, his eyes rested upon those appealing words, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

The thought of so wonderful a love awakened his interest and touched his heart. He wanted to know more. With his friend he returned to the chapel, told the preacher of his mutilated New Testament, and received another in its place. This he treasured and studied diligently. Before long he became a Christian.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:


We're liken to a king,
We're liken to a tree.
You lost us once,
but found us again.
We're moving all the time,
but we don't move an inch.
Beware your fingers,
they might get a pinch!

A woman shoots her husband. Then she holds him under water for over 5 minutes. Finally, she hangs him. But 5 minutes later they both go out together and enjoy a wonderful dinner together. How can this be?

What is black when you buy it, red when you use it, and gray when you throw it away?


1) teeth

2) The woman was a photographer. She shot a picture of her husband, developed it, and hung it up to dry.

3) Charcoal

A passenger on a Southwest Airlines flight says that he once faced a flight delay just before they boarded. A flight attendant picked up the microphone and announced:

"We're sorry for the delay. The machine that normally rips the handles off your luggage is broken, so we're having to do it by hand. We should be finished and on our way shortly."
