~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

We are shaped and fashioned by what we Love. - Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Terry Fullam preached a message on the radio. His father, a man who had enjoyed remarkably good health all his life. One Sunday morning as they were getting ready for church, his father said, “I really don’t think I can go today. I don’t feel well enough.” That was quite a shock. He had never known his father to miss church – not once. His father was admitted to the hospital that afternoon where it was discovered that he had a severe and advanced case of cancer of the bone. He only lived two weeks after that.

In his last hours, the whole family gathered around his bed, knowing he didn’t have very long to live. At one point, he lapsed into a coma – but then he opened his eyes and started talking, just as clearly as could be. He spoke to each family member, one by one, and had very wonderful and personal things to say to each of them.

By that time, the whole room was awash with tears. They had managed to hold it back, but they just couldn’t anymore; and, of course, he saw it. He smiled a little bit and said, “If you could see what I am seeing—if you could hear what I am hearing, you would not weep for me.” And he seemed to marshal all the strength he had left in that weakened body, and he sat up and said, “Rejoice with me. This is my coronation day!” And he lay back on the pillow, and died. There wasn’t a trace of fear because he would be seeing his King, Christ Jesus.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

This Town Is So Small . . .

The City Jail is called amoeba, because it only has one cell.

Main Street - one block long - dead ends in both directions.

McDonalds only has one Golden Arch.

The phone book has only one page.

The 7-11 is a 3&1/2 - 5&1/2.

The New Year's baby was born in October.

The ZIP code is a fraction.

The city limits signs are both on the same post.

Second Street is in the next town over.

There's no place to go that you shouldn't.

A "Night on the Town" takes only 11 minutes.

The mayor had to annex property to eat a foot-long hot dog.

The computer in my high school classroom recently started acting up. After watching me struggle with it, one of my students took over. "Your hard drive crashed," he said.

I called the computer services office and explained, "My computer is down. The hard drive crashed."

"We can't just send people down on your say-so. How do you know that's the problem?"

"A student told me," I answered.

"We'll send someone over right away."
