~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to over look. - William James, Reader's Digest, 2-98


[He said] that it was a great delusion to think that the times of prayer ought to differ from other times; that we are as strictly obliged to adhere to God by action in the time of action as by prayer in the season of prayer. That his view of prayer was nothing else but a sense of the Presence of God, his soul being at that time insensible to everything but Divine Love; and that when the appointed times of prayer were past, he found no difference, because he still continued with God, praising and blessing Him with all his might, so that he passed his life in continual Joy; yet hoped that God would give him somewhat to suffer when he should have grown stronger. ... Brother Lawrence (c.1605-1691) (Shared by Cool Fact of the Day http://www.LearningKingdom.com/join.html)

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Recently, a study was made comparing American mothers with mothers in Japan. One of the questions asked was this: "What do you want for your children when they grow up?" Just about every Japanese mother answered this question with the same word, "Successful!" When American mothers were asked what they wanted for their children when they grew up, the answer, was one word, "Happy!" - TONY CAMPOLO
