~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

The more ignorant you are, the quicker you fight. - Will Rogers

Source: Molly's Quotes of the Day,


A young man bound for the mission field found himself seated on an airplane next to Billy Graham. He eagerly told the famed evangelist how he was on his way to some remote mission station, where he confidently expected to lead many heathen to the Lord. Graham said that was wonderful news. Then he asked how many souls the young missionary had brought to Jesus in his family or neighborhood. Looking a little downcast and distracted, the young man responded that he had not brought anyone to the Lord yet—and then he commenced to offer a series of contrived excuses for why it was so difficult to
produce converts in his hometown.

After a prayerful pause, Graham soberly advised the young man to return home, saying, "If you have not been successful in reaching anybody in your family or neighborhood, it is likely you'll not experience success in a foreign land either."

By Doug Batchelor in Broken Chains (Pacific Press 2004)

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

My husband had to run to the store one evening. He took our two girls, Sarah and Hanna, ages four and two. On the way home he detoured through several neighborhoods, looking at the houses that were for sale.

"Daddy, what are we doing?" asked Sarah, our four-year-old.

"Looking at the houses that are for sale, honey," my husband replied.

Sarah then asked, "Are you gonna buy a new house?"

"Maybe," Dad replied.

Then Sarah looked at the bag from the store and looked back at my husband, very concerned.

"But Dad," she said plaintively, "how will we get it HOME?"

A man and his wife were lying in bed the other night when he noticed she had bought a new book entitled, "What 20 Million American Women Want."

He grabbed the book out of her hands and started thumbing through the pages.

His wife was a little annoyed. "Hey, what do you think you're doing?"

He calmly replied, "I just wanted to see if they spelled my name right."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

When I was a newly commissioned Lieutenant in the Army, I was assigned as a temporary assistant in an administrative office in a Military Intelligence unit. One day a log came around with a cover sheet instructing all assigned officers to read it and initial it as indication of their compliance.

I figured it meant me too, so I read and initialed it. BUT a few days later, it came back addressed specifically to me. An attached note read: "You are not permanently assigned to this unit and are thus not an authorized signee. Please erase your initials and initial your
erasure." So I did.
