~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

"One of the most lasting pleasures you can experience is the feeling that comes over you when you genuinely forgive an enemy - whether he knows it or not." - O. A. Battista

Many years ago a youngster who lived in a rough area of town was having a hard time at his new job in the factory. He was brave enough, or foolish enough (depending on your point of view) to hang on to his ideals, even his Christian beliefs. His workmates did not approve of that so he got his daily dose of ridicule and abuse.

One day, one of the men said to him: "You're a fool. Can't you see that if there is a God who cares anything for the likes of you, he would tell someone to come along and give you what you need - a good meal, a comfortable home, and at least the chance to make something of yourself."

To this the youngster replied: "I reckon God does tell someone, only that someone always forgets."

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:


I can't. I quit.
I won't. That's it.
I'm done. I'm through.
No more.

No chance. I'm gone.
Forget it. So long.
Good-bye. I'm out
The door.

Drop it. Leave it.
Not maybe. No, never!
Not ever. No way.
No how.

You can't get me,
Just 3 foot 3
To milk that
Angry cow.

When Rev. Billy Graham visited Vietnam in 1965 he told the story of the man from the mountains of North Carolina who had never been bear hunting.

After finally persuading his friends to take him on their next trip, they stopped at his house at day break to pick him up. When he got into the car and had every provision for hunting except a gun, the other hunters wanted to know he was going to hunt bears without a gun. "Don't worry," he told them, "I have a special technique I have been thinking about all week."

This seemed to satisfy everyone, so they drove on to the cabin and settled down for a big day of hunting the next day. Just as the sun was coming up over the mountain, they hear their friend outside the cabin yelling, "Open the door! Open the door!" They looked out the window and saw their friend running down the side of the mountain as fast as he could with a huge black bear nipping at his heels. One of the men quickly opened the door and the friend ran inside with the black bear right behind him. Turning to his buddies he said, "Ok, you guys skin this'en. I'm going back for another one."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

"When cleaning your car's windows, wipe one side of the glass from side to side, the other up and down. This way, if there are any streaks, you'll know what side they're on." For more information on washing your car, check out 2torial #0571: http://www.learn2.com/05/0571/0571.html
