~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
A young man said, "The greatest gift I ever received was a gift I got when my Dad gave me a small box...
Inside was a note saying, Son, this year I will give you 365 hours... one hour everyday after dinner... It's yours. We'll talk about what you want to talk about, we'll go where you want to go, play what you want to play... it will be your hour."
My Dad not only kept his promise," he said, "but every year he would renew it... and it's the greatest gift I ever had in my life...
I am the result of his time."

A man in Kansas City was severely injured in an explosion. Evangelist Robert L. Sumner tells about him in his book The Wonders of the Word of God.
The victim's face was badly disfigured, and he lost his eyesight as well as both hands. He was just a new Christian, and one of his greatest disappointments was that he could no longer read the Bible. Then he heard about a lady in England who read Braille with her lips. Hoping to do the same, he sent for some books of the Bible in Braille. Much to his dismay, however, he discovered that the nerve endings in his lips had been destroyed by the explosion.
One day, as he brought one of the Braille pages to his lips, his tongue happened to touch a few of the raised characters and he could feel them. Like a flash he thought, I can read the Bible using my tongue.
At the time Robert Sumner wrote his book, the man had "read" through the entire Bible four times.
