WITandWISDOM(tm) - August 4, 1999
The way you see people is the way you treat them . . . And the way you treat them is what they become. - Johann W. Von Goeth

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Stan Buck tells the story about a little girl who, on the way home from church, turned to her mother and said, "Mommy, the preacher's sermon this morning confused me."
The mother said, "Oh! Why is that?
The girl replied, "Well, he said that God is bigger than we are. Is that true?"
"Yes, that's true," the mother replied.
"He also said that God lives within us. Is that true too?"
Again the mother replied, "Yes."
"Well," said the girl. "if God is bigger that us and he lives in us, wouldn't he show through?"

"Love is foolish . . . but I still might try it sometime." - Floyd, age 9

"One way is to take the girl out to eat. Make sure it's something she likes to eat. French fries usually works for me." - Bart, age 9
~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
One day in our church we decided it would be a great idea for the kids to get up in front of the congregation and get "formally introduced", so everyone would know what child belonged to what parents. We had a list of questions to ask them. What's your mom's name? What's your dad's name? How old are you? What grade are you in? What do you want to be when you grow up?
When we asked three-year-old Brandon this last question, he replied, "I want to be a Mommy."

A tip for finding tiny objects: You can put a nylon stocking (a knee-high) over the tube of a vacuum cleaner and vacuum the spot where you think the object will be. The vacuum will suck the object up and it will be held on the nylon stocking. When you turn the vacuum off, the item will fall from the hose into your hands.
