~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open. - Elmer G. Letterman

The Bible is shallow enough that the most timid swimmer may enjoy its waters without fear.

It is deep enough for the most expert swimmer to enjoy without touching bottom.

Its critics have been legion, but it is still here; they are gone.

It is the root of all good civil law, and good practice.

It has comforted millions, as no other book can comfort; and still continues to do so.

When nations ignored its teachings, they fell.

It tells what was, what is, and what will be--and epitome of life from the cradle to the grave, and then beyond.

It is God's vital and inviolate Word, and can never be set aside.

By John Watson

Parenthood is indeed a spiritual experience. When the kids are small, 24 hours a day I was clothing the naked, feeding the hungry, and giving drink to the thirsty . . .

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

The great conductor, Arturo Toscanini, owed his success to the fact that he was extremely nearsighted. At the age of nineteen he was playing cello in an orchestra. Since he couldn't see the music on the stand, he listened intently and memorized it.

One evening, just before a major performance, the director suddenly became ill and young Toscanini was the only person in the orchestra who knew the score. He conducted it "by heart" and the audience loved it.

Just think! If Toscanini hadn't been nearsighted, he may have spent his life playing cello. Instead, he was hailed as one of the greatest conductors the world has ever known. He knew the score!
