~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Morale is when your hands and feet keep on working when your head says it can't be done. - Benjamin Morrell

There were two farmers. One loved his Bible, reverenced the Sabbath, loved his Creator, and believed that He was a prayer-hearing and answering Father.

The other was an infidel, regarding all days alike; he plowed, sowed, reaped, and labored on the seventh the same as on the other six days.

When the harvesting was over, and the grain had all been gathered into barns, the infidel’s crop was found to be by far the largest, a hailstorm having visited his friend’s farm, destroying the greater part of his grain.

“How now, neighbor Brown?” said the infidel, wishing to turn the joke upon his friend; “you kept the Sabbath, and what have you gained? An empty barn. I have worked on each day of the week alike, and see the result!” and he waved his hand toward his large and well-filled barn.

His neighbor quietly replied, “Friend Gray, God does not settle all His accounts in October.” From: Advocate and Guardian

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

Social workers called out by a worried mum to speak to her daughter about her loose morals were shocked to find out their ages.

They had to tell the 92-year-old German mother that her 68-year-old daughter's love life was none of their business.

Adelheid Schmidt called the youth department of social services in Hildesheim, Lower Saxony, to complain about her daughter Tina's "uncontrollable, immoral and loose behaviour with men".

Mrs Schmidt made the call after she found out that Tina had a boyfriend.

But the social workers told her they could not help her as her "child" was 50 years past the age limit where social services can get involved.

My daughter's teacher was explaining the freezing process to his ninth grade class and mentioned that his grandmother, a few days before, had told him she beat frost by watering her vegetables just before nightfall. One of his students looked at him. "I don't believe it!" she exclaimed.

Ready to defend the technique, he asked her what she didn't believe.

"That your grandmother's still alive," the astonished girl replied.
