~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on. - Henry Ellis

The weary medic turned away from his buddy who lay helpless on the army cot in the hospital tent in the jungle. It was no use. Only a transfusion could save his life, and no one could be found with the same rare type of blood. He walked away from the clearing to be alone, but soon he heard groans in the bush. Investigating, he discovered a soldier who was badly wounded. The man retained a few tattered rags of clothing that proclaimed him to be one of the enemy. The medic had been trained to save life. He called for help and had the man taken to camp.

Hours later, resigned to the loss of his pal, the medic reported to the surgeon.

“I suppose my buddy is gone,” he began sadly.

“Why, no. He’s doing fine,” returned the surgeon. “And so is the other fellow you brought in.”

“But you said my buddy could live only an hour or so.”

“I know, son,” smiled the surgeon. “But that ‘enemy’ you brought in had the same type of blood— so they’ll both live.”

“If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink: for thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the Lord shall reward thee.” (Proverbs 25:21, 22)

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

Thoughts About Cats

Behind every cat that crosses the street, there is a dog saying, "Go ahead, you can make it."

In a cat's eye, all things belong to cats.

As every cat owner knows, nobody owns a cat.

Cats aren't clean, they're just covered with cat spit.

There is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast.

The only domestic animal not mentioned in the Bible is the cat. (Hmmmm)

"We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it...and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove-lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove- lid again, and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore." - Mark Twain
