~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
CONSOLATION IN OUR LORD
What happened to the years? I asked
He said "for everything a time"
Where are my friends of long ago?
He said "beyond the hill you climb"
Why are my footsteps slower now?
He said "tis all within the plan"
But what of all my hopes and dreams?
He said "they mellowed with the man"
But there is still so much to do.
He said "be grateful for today"
The road to heaven seems so long.
He said "there is no other way"
But what of all the things I need?
He said "and do I not provide?"
Sometimes I even grow afraid.
He said "I am always at thy side"
My purse is thin, my coins are few.
He said "sufficient for the day"
And oftentimes I am wrongly judged.
He said "care not what others say"
Oh to be peaceful and secure.
He said "all things are thine in Me"
My cross grows heavy with the miles.
He said "I'll lift it presently"
The future looks so bleak and grey.
He said "tis darkest before the dawn"
But who will share my lonely way?
He said "you have me to lean upon,
No love so lasting as My own,
No power greater than my hand,
For you belong to Me and this
is all you need to understand."

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
HERE'S SOMETHING FUN. TRY IT. YOU'LL BE AMAZED!
THIS IS SCARY BUT IT REALLY WORKS.
DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!!!
It only takes 30 seconds. Work this out as you read.
Don't read the bottom until you have worked it out.!!!
1. First of all, pick the number of days a week that you would like to go out.
2. Multiply this number by 2.
3. Add 5.
4. Multiply it by 50.
5. If you have already had your birthday this year, add 1748. If you haven't, add 1747.
6. Last step: Subtract the four digit year that you were born.
You should now have a three digit number:
The first digit of this was your original number (i.e. how many times you want to go out each week).
The second two digits are your age!!! It really works.
This is the only year (1998) it will ever work, so spread the joy around by mailing this to everyone you know.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you do criticize him, you'll be a mile away and have his shoes. - Unknown
