Many people spend their health for wealth, and then try to spend their wealth for health. - Mikey's Thot for the Day

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Today I smiled, and all at once
Things didn't look so bad.
Today I share with someone else,
A bit of hope I had.
Today I sang a little song,
And felt my heart grow light,
And walked a happy little mile,
With not a cloud in sight.
Today I worked with what I had
And longed for nothing more,
And what had seemed like only weeds,
Were flowers at my door.
Today I loved a little more,
Complained a little less,
And in the giving of myself,
Forgot my weariness.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
MUSINGS OF A COUNTRY PREACHER
Attendance at worship last Sunday was a mite poorly. I don't reckon I ought to grumble, because I had a bunch of sick members; and when you add to that all of my shut-ins, we don't have a site of pew fillers. So, I went ahead and preached to what I had. Only thing was the echo in the near empty church building hurt my ears.
My wife said I needed to get out, ride awhile and let the fresh air clear my head. It made me feel real good inside. What I saw made me rejoice; I saw miracle after miracle!
Old Hezekiah who had been deathly sick that morning was roused up and riding down the highway with his fishing poles. Nothing but a miracle could have rescued Hezekiah from the jaws of death in such a short time.
Now there's Rufe's brother. Rufe told me Sunday morning his brother's back was in such foul shape they were afraid that an operation was gonna be necessary. Well, we remembered him in our prayer, and lo and behold at two o'clock there he was at the driving range hitting golf balls. If that wasn't quick recovery then I don't know what is.
All told, about 20 of my sick folks had roused up and was taking nourishment in some form or other. But what made me really happy was to see so many of my shut-ins out riding around and enjoying the world.
Hezekiah's pa, who don't attend worship "cause he can't stand crowds," was headed for the baseball game. Sister Nell's mama, who can't come on account of her kidneys, stood in line for two hours to get into the picture show. Yes, sir, it sure thrilled my heart to see what I saw!
I ought to have a packed house next Sunday with all my sick folks being healed and my shut-ins set free. I just hope they don't overdo themselves and have a relapse before next Sunday.
I gotta go now and play with my smallest young 'un. He is gonna be a farmer, and I'm gonna be the goat. Tin cans will be easy to eat after what I have swallowed!

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
Do you realize how many holes there could be if people would just take the time to take the dirt out of them?
At a recent meeting in Snowmass, Colorado, a participant from Los Angeles fainted from hyper oxygenation, and we had to hold his head under the exhaust of a bus until he revived.

Originally February had 30 days. Julius Caesar took one day and added it to the month named after him - July. Later, Emperor Augustus took another day from February and added it to the month named for him - August.
