WITandWISDOM(tm) - January 18, 2007
Note: If you come to this website to read WITandWISDOM on a regular basis I would be interested to know what country and time zone you live in. It would be also interesting to know the time of day you usually read it. This will help me to know how early I need to put the next day’s WITandWISDOM on the website. If you don’t mind letting me know visit: http://witandwisdom.org/contact.htm
To look backward for a while is to refresh the eye, to restore it, and to render it the more fit for its prime function of looking forward. - Margaret Fairless Barber

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
There was a little girl, who's father was a pastor.
One day, she came to her father and said, "Daddy, can a person go their whole life without sinning?"
The father answered, "No, honey, I'm sorry, but that's just not possible."
"What about a year, daddy? Can a person go a whole year without sinning?" She continued.
"No, I don't think that's possible either."
"What about a day, can a person go a day without sinning once?"
"It's very unlikely, no, I don't think they can."
"What about one moment, daddy, can a person go one moment without sinning?"
"Yes, that is possible."
"Then daddy, I want to live my life, moment by moment."

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
I was shocked, confused, bewildered as I entered Heaven's door,
Not by the beauty of it all, by the lights or its decor.
But it was the folks in Heaven who made me sputter and gasp—
the thieves, the liars, the sinners, the alcoholics, the trash.
There stood the kid from seventh grade who swiped my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbor who never said anything nice.
Herb, who I always thought was rotting away in hell,
was sitting pretty on cloud nine, looking incredibly well.
I nudged the angel, "What's the deal? I would love to hear your take.
How'd all these sinners get up here? God must've made a mistake.
And why's everyone so quiet, so somber? Give me a clue."
"Hush, child," said he. "They're all in shock. No one thought they'd see you."

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
When I asked my sixth grade music class to name the groups of instruments of the orchestra, one pupil listed strings, woodwinds, brass and persecution instruments.

During the filming of the classic 1958 western, Big Country, one of the actors, Charlton Heston, thought he could help the director by improving the dialogue in one scene...
During a break he walked over to William Wyler, the director, and picked up Wyler's copy of the script. When he did this the leather flyleaf opened and Heston saw stamped in small letters the titles of many of Wyler's most famous films. Seeing that list reminded the actor of the genius and ability of this director whose judgment he was thinking he could improve. Heston put the script down, and as he turned to walk away he said, "Forget it, I agree with you."
