Think about them for a moment!!!!!!

God Himself does not propose to judge a man until he is dead. So WHY should you?!

It is easier to preach ten sermons than it is to live one.

The task ahead of us is never as great as the POWER behind us.

People are funny; they want the front of the bus, the middle of the road, and the back of the church!

Opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on your front door forever.

....from the Editor..

....a sweet form of Innocence...

One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex standing in the foyer of the church staring up at a large plaque. It was covered with names with small flags mounted on either side of it.

the seven year old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor walked up , stood beside the little boy, and said quietly, "Good morning Alex." "Good Morning Pastor," he replied, still focused on the plaque.

"Pastor, what is this?" he asked the pastor.

the pastor said," Well, son, it's a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service."

Somberly, they just stood together in silence, staring at the large plaque.

Finally, little Alex's voice, barely audible and trembling with fear asked," Which service, the 8:30 or the 10:45???

.....something on a personal note ....

It is about Attitude and Perception...

There is a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.

" Well," she said, " I think I'll braid my hair today." So she did and she had a wonderful day. The next day she woke up , looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only two hairs

on her head.

"Hmmmm," she said, " I think I'll part my hair down the middle today." So she did and she had a grand day. The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror, and noticed

she had only one hair on her head." Well," she said," today I'm going to wear my hair in a ponytail. So she did and had a fun, fun day. The next day she woke up , looked

in the mirror and noticed there wasn't a single hair on her head. " YEAH !!!", she exclaimed ," I don't have to fix my hair today !!!! "

        

  I am sure there are many people out there who are fighting a battle every day. Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

My wife is still with me and I am thankful that there is a greater power than earthly medicine. Life might not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here , we might as well dance !!!
