~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Age 75 – I’ve learned that how people treat me is more a reflection of how they see themselves than how they see me.

A little girl was given 10 shiny, new pennies. With the greatest care she spread her treasure out on the living room rug.

“This penny is for God. And this penny is for me.”

“And this penny is for me.”

“And this penny is for me.”

“And this penny is for God.”

Her mother interrupted her daughter and said, “you already gave one penny to God!”

Yes, Mommy,” she said, “the first one already belonged to Him! But this one is a gift!”

A lawyer defending a man accused of burglary tried this creative defense..... "My client merely inserted his arm into the window and removed a few trifling articles. His arm is not himself, and I fail to see how you can punish the whole individual for an offense committed by his limb."

"Well put, " the judge replied. "Using your logic, I sentence the defendant's arm to one year's imprisonment. He can accompany it or not, as he chooses."

The defendant smiled. With his lawyer's assistance he detached his artificial limb, laid it on the bench, and walked out.

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. (UPI) -- The University of Pennsylvania has approved a kidney donation from a Mount Laurel, N.J., Methodist pastor to a Reform Jewish rabbi.

Rev. Karen Onesti, pastor of the Masonville-Rancocas United Methodist Church, had been trying for more than a year to win approval for an operation to transplant one of her kidneys into Rabbi Andrew Bossov of the town's Adath Emanu-El synagogue, the Camden (N.J.) Courier Post reported Monday.

The pair will meet with doctors Jan. 8 to discuss the surgery. The operation would follow within 30 days.

"Dialysis takes its toll on me and my lifestyle, as well as on my family. But I wanted Karen to get through her busy Christmas season," Bossov said.

The two spiritual leaders met four years ago when they were both new to the community and became friends through the Interfaith Council of Greater Mount Laurel.

"I feel about Andy the way I feel about my own brother," Onesti said.
