Your life is a reflection of your thoughts. If you change your thinking, you change your life. - Brian Tracy

When Albert Schweitzer was a young pastor in Alsace-Lorraine, he conducted worship in the village church every morning. One old gentleman came every day. This impressed Schweitzer, but when he learned that the old fellow was totally deaf, his wonder was increased. Why should anyone attend an early service every day if he couldn’t hear the sounds of worship?

One morning Schweitzer scribbled a note and handed it to the man after the service: “Why do you keep attending when you can’t hear?”

The old man looked at the words for a moment and then looked the young pastor in the eyes. A smile came over his grizzled features as he spoke in the abnormally loud voice of one who cannot hear: “Oh, Pastor, the communion of the saints, the communion of the saints!”

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

A Romanian man has handed over his wife to a creditor as payment for his debts.

Emil Iancu, from tIghisu Nou, gave his wife Daniela to 72-year-old Jozef Justien Lostrie when he turned up on his doorstep to collect a £1,800 debt.

Iancu said: "I had no money to pay the debt and when I told Lostrie he said he would take my wife instead.

"I was scared of what he would do and so I signed a document saying Daniela would live with him."

But Daniela says the deal has proved better for her.

"Before I had to clean the house and look after our three children on my own, while Emil did nothing, but now I'm treated like a guest and hardly have to raise a finger," she said.

The teenager lost a contact lens while playing basketball in his driveway. After a fruitless search, he told his mother the lens was no where to be found.

Undaunted, she went outside and in a few minutes returned with the lens in her hand.

"How did you manage to find it, Mom?" the teenager asked.

"We weren't looking for the same thing," she replied. "You were looking for a small piece of plastic. I was looking for $150."
