~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Your heavenly Father knoweth (Matt 6:32)
A visitor at a school for the deaf and dumb was writing questions on the blackboard for the children. By and by he wrote this sentence: "Why has God made me to hear and speak, and made you dumb and deaf?" The awful silence fell on the little ones like a fierce blow in the face. They sat palsied before that dreadful"Why?" And then a little girl arose. Her lip was trembling. Her eyes were swimming with tears. Straight to the board she walked, and picking up a crayon, wrote with a firm hand these precious words: "Because Father, it seemed good in thy sight!" What a reply! It lays hold of an eternal truth which the most mature believer as well as the youngest child of God may alike securely rest — the truth that God is your Father. Do you mean that? Do you really and fully believe that? When you do, then your dove of faith will no longer wander in weary unrest, but will settle down forever in its eternal resting place of peace. "Your Father!" - Author Unknown

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
1. A farmer has 17 sheep, and all but 9 die. How many are left?
2. How many animals of each sex did Moses take on the ark?
3. A clerk in the butcher shop is 5 ft 10 in tall. What does he weigh?
4. How many two cent stamps are there in a dozen?
5. What was the President of the United States' name in 1950?
6. How many jellybeans can you put into an empty bag?
2. None - Noah took them on the ark, not Moses.
5. Bill Clinton.
6. Just one -- after that, it isn't empty.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
When our 3-year-old grandson, Mitchell, got a new baby brother, I spent a while with the family to lend a hand. While there I made a coverlet for his bed and curtains for the windows in his room.
Spying my measuring tape on the table, Mitchell grabbed it and said excitedly, "I'm going to see how much I weigh!" Then, stretching the tape to his full height, he proudly exclaimed. "I weigh $100!" - Evelyn Griffin, Hagerstown, Maryland
The word "marathon" comes from a run made in Greece by a soldier in 490 B.C. The heroic run was from Marathon to the city of Athens with news of a military victory. The distance of many of today's marathon races, a little over 27 miles, is the same distance between Marathon and Athens.
