There is nothing wrong with people possessing riches. The wrong comes when riches possess people. - Billy Graham
~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
I'll never forget the evening that Jim and I, exhausted after a long day, collapsed into bed without completing our usual practice of praying about many things, but especially for our children. We were almost asleep when I remembered.
"Jim," I said, "we haven't prayed for our kids yet today. Don't you think we should talk to the Lord?"
It wasn't easy, but we crawled out of bed, got on our knees, and offered yet another prayer for our children's well-being.
Later we learned that at the exact moment we were praying, a strange looking man sought by the police tried to get into the parked car where our daughter, Danae, and a girlfriend were sharing a fast-food meal. By the grace of God, the door was locked, and Danae was able to start the car quickly and escape.
Never underestimate the power of prayer. When your petition is also for God's will, it will bring you closer to the heavenly Father, who loves you unconditionally.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
When I say to move, it means go someplace else, not switch positions with each other so there are still two dogs in the way.
The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.
The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help, because I fall faster than you can run.
I cannot buy anything bigger than a king size bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue to sleep on the couch to ensure your comfort. Look at videos of dogs sleeping, they can actually curl up in a ball. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space used is nothing but doggy sarcasm.
My compact discs are not miniature Frisbees.
For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, try to turn the knob, or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door I entered. In addition, I have been using bathrooms for years; canine attendance is not mandatory.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
On his first morning delivering newspapers, my son was riding with his supervisor who was showing him some tricks of the trade. He proceeded to demonstrate how to throw a newspaper accurately.
"Now remember," he warned, "it's 5:30 in the morning, so you don't want to make a big ruckus. This customer likes his paper right on his front porch."
The supervisor then hurled the paper toward the house. It landed on the customer's car and set off the alarm.
