"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit." - Albert Schweitzer

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Cell Phone vs. The Bible
I wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell phones.
What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?
What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it?
What if we flipped through it several times a day?
What if we used it to receive messages?
What if we treated it like we couldn't live without it?
What if we gave it to kids as gifts?
What if we used it as we traveled?
What if we used it in case of an emergency?
What if we upgraded it to get the latest version?
Does this make you think, "Hmmm. where IS my Bible?
Oh, and one more thing. Unlike our cell phones, we don't ever have to worry about our Bible being disconnected because Jesus already paid the bill!

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
A young couple, very much in love, were getting married in church. However, Sue the wife was very nervous about the big occasion and so the vicar chose one verse that he felt would be a great encouragement to them.
The verse was 1 John 4:18 which says:
“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.”
Rather unwisely, the vicar asked the best man to read it out and to say that the vicar had felt that this was a very apt verse for Sue and that he would be preaching on it later in the service.
However the best man was not a regular churchgoer. And so he did not know the difference between John’s Gospel and the First Letter of John.
So he introduced his reading by saying that the vicar felt was a very apt verse for Sue. But he read John 4:18, which says,
“You have five husbands and the one that you now have is not your husband.”
