~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself. - Abraham Maslow

(Judy Robinett via E-zine: DAILYQUOTE c1999 http://www.dailycast.com)



1. Admit to your spouse that you have made mistakes and that you desire to change.

2. Ask your spouse to tell you one thing that you could either begin doing or stop doing that would make life easier or more meaningful for him or her.

3. Write your spouse's suggestions on a card or a poster for future reference.

4. Ask God to help you serve your spouse better.

5. Continue to ask for suggestions, building them into your life-style. This will require thought, prayer and discipline, but the satisfaction of genuinely serving your spouse in worth the effort.

- Gary D. Chapman, DECISION, June 1998

(Matthew J. Roberts)


After listening restlessly to a long and tedious sermon, a 6-year-old boy asked his father what the preacher did the rest of the week. "Oh, he's a very busy man," the father replied. "He takes care of church business, visits the sick, ministers to the poor. . . . And then he has to have time to rest up. Talking in public isn't an easy job, you know. "The boy thought about that, then said, "Well, listening ain't easy, either." - Author Unknown

(Rod Keen)
