~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
A member of his congregation told Rev. Warren J. Keating, pastor of First Presbyterian Church, Yuma, AZ, that this was the best prayer he ever heard: "Dear God, please help me be the person my dog thinks I am."

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
Car Ads -- If the ad claims... It really means:
- rough condition... too bad to lie about
- parts car... beyond repair
- immaculate... recently washed
- engine quiet... if you use 90-weight oil
- needs minor overhaul... needs engine
- needs major overhaul... Phone the junkyard
- burns no oil... (it all leaks out)
- Drive it away... I live on a hill.
- Drive it anywhere... (within 10 miles)
- desirable classic... No one wants it.
- rare classic... No one wanted it even when it was new.
- stored 20 years... (in a farmer's field)
- ran when stored... Won't start.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
I heard a story recently about a young girl who wrote a letter to a missionary to let him know that her class had been praying for him. But evidently she'd been told not to request a response to her letter because the missionaries were very busy. So the missionary got a kick out of her letter. It said, "Dear Mr. Missionary, we are praying for you. But we are not expecting an answer."

Who writes "Dear Abby" now?
"Dear Abby" is now written by Jeanne Phillips, the daughter of Pauline Phillips, or "Abigail Van Buren." Until recently, the mother-daughter duo were writing the column together and had been sharing the writing since 1987. Jeanne began taking sole credit in 2002. The original "Abby" has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, the family revealed last year.
