~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Nobody stands taller than those willing to stand corrected. - William Safire, Columnist

Anatoli Levitin, a Russian writer and historian, spent years in the Siberian Gulag where petitions to God must have seemed frozen to the ground. But he came back quite spiritually fit. "The greatest miracle of all is prayer," he wrote. "I have only to turn mentally to God and at once I feel a force that pours into me from somewhere, into my soul, my whole being. . . . It comes from outside me - and there is no force in the world which could ever resist it."

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

Little Noah came into the house with a new harmonica. "Grandpa, do you mind if I play this in here?" he asked.

"Of course not, Noah. I love music. In fact, when your grandma and I were young, music saved my life."

"What happened?"

"Well, it was during the famous Johnstown flood. The dam broke and when the water hit our house it knocked it right off its foundation. Grandma got on the dining room table and floated out safely."

"How about you?"

"Me? I accompanied her on the piano!"

Before boarding a bus, a man asked the driver, "What is the fare to the train station?" "Sixty cents," said the driver. The man raced alongside the bus until the next stop and then gasped, "What is the fare now?" "Ninety cents," said the driver. "You're running the wrong way."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

In Michigan a man was pulled over for a driving violation. When the officers searched his car they found a revolver, so they arrested him. They had to release him the next day with an apology. The revolver had fallen out of the policeman's holster!
