We reform others unconsciously when we walk uprightly. - Quips & Quotes, E. C. McKenzie


Then He breathed on them and told them, "Receive the Holy Spirit." - John 20:22, TLB

John Bunyan tells how the Lord used "three or four poor women sitting at a door, in the sun, talking about the things of God," to create within him a desire to come to know the Saviour (Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, p. 26). These women certainly knew what it meant to have the Spirit of God breathed into them, as Bunyan later testified. "And, methought, they spake as if joy did make them speak; thay {sic} spake with such pleasantness of scripture language, and with such appearance of grace in all they said, that they were to me as if they had found a new world" (ibid., p. 27) - Garrie F. Williams



When launching a boat, always back the boat into the water. Pulling the boat into the water can really mess up your carburetor.

When waterskiing, never allow a feisty duck to hitch a ride on your skis.

Always stay at least five boat-lengths behind the whale in front of you.

While sinking to the bottom of a lake or ocean, screaming does not help.

When boating, always wear a swimsuit with suspenders. This makes it easier on the guys with the grappling hook when they're trying to retrieve your body.

Drowning can cause severe shortness of breath. And you don't even want to think about what it does to your complexion.

Always wear a life jacket in case you fall overboard. Also, it's a good idea to take along something to read, in case you're swallowed by a whale. Most whales seem to enjoy Moby Dick.

Boating while intoxicated is not illegal in some states, but it's stupid in all of them.

A cute poem my father shared with me 40 years ago - Richard Wimer

There was a man named doctor Peg
Who fell in the well and broke his leg
It served him right for such a trick
He should have left the well alone
And tended to the sick.
