~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Hope is the ability to hear the music of the future; but faith is having the courage to dance to it today! - Author Unknown

C.H. Spurgeon told the story of the preacher who was walking in the country side and stopped by a farm house for a drink of water. The old farmer who lived there went out to talk to the preacher. As they were talking the preacher noticed that the barn had a weather vane on it that was spinning around in the wind. On the weather vane the words "GOD IS LOVE" was engraved.

The preacher said to the man, "I donít think that is a very good way to talk about Godís love. Are you saying that Godís love is Wishy Washy and changes depending on the way the wind blows?" "No, no" said the farmer. "That Weather Vane is saying, "No matter which way the wind blows, God is Love."

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

Two friends are discussing the possibility of love. "I thought I was in love three times," one friend says.

"How so?" his friend asks.

"Five years ago I deeply cared for a woman who wanted nothing to do with me."

"Was that not love?" his friend asks.

"No," he replies. "That was obsession. And then two years ago I deeply cared for an attractive woman who didn't understand me."

"Was that not love?"

"No," he replies. "That was lust. And just last year I met a woman aboard a cruise ship to the Caribbean. She was smart, funny, and a great conversationalist. And everywhere I followed her on that boat, I would get this strange sensation in the pit of my stomach."

"Was that not love?" his friend asks.

"No," he replies. "That was motion sickness."

I was virtually worn out after a busy day with my two grandchildren, so at dinnertime I did not have a lot of energy left for cooking. I asked them if they would be satisfied with frozen pizza. "Oh no," my three-year-old grandson quickly replied. "I like mine warm!"

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Does Religion Have a Positive Influence?

Dennis Prager, the Jewish social critic and scholar, says his favorite response to the question, "Does religion have a positive influence?" is a story. Say you are walking down an alley at 11:00 p.m. in New York, Miami, or Los Angeles. The dim streetlights illumine your car 300 yards away. Suddenly, you see ten young men wearing leather jackets swaggering down the alley toward you. Would you feel more comfortable if you knew that those young men had just come out of a Bible study? Every time Prager has asked that
question the answer has been "yes."
