WIT & WISDOM - December 28, 1998

~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

"You are what you think about all day long." - Dr. Robert Schuller [1]


Author Unknown

"Nothing to pay? No, not a whit.
Nothing to give? No, not a bit.
All that was needed to give or to pay,
Jesus hath done in God's own blessed way.

"Nothing to settle? All has been paid.
Nothing to anger? Peace has been made.
Jesus alone is the sinner's resource;
Peace he has made by the blood of his cross.

"What about terror? It hasn't a place
In a heart that is filled with a sense of his grace.
My peace is most sweet and it never can cloy,
And that makes my heart bubble over with joy.

"Nothing of guilt? No, not a stain;
How could the blood even one let remain?
My conscience is purged and my spirit is free;
Precious that blood is to God and to me.

"What of my future? 'Tis glorious and fair.
Since justified, sanctified, glory I'll share.
By his blood first redeemed, by his grace then enthroned,
Side by side with my Lord, as his Bride I'll be owned.

"What then, dost thou ask? O, glory shall follow;
Earth shall rejoice in the dawn of the morrow.
To rule and to bless comes that kingdom and reign;
Flee then, shall sorrow, death, crying and pain." [2]

In a cemetery:
Persons are prohibited from
picking flowers from any but
their own graves.

In a restaurant window:

Don't stand outside and be miserable.
Com inside and be fed up.

At the Hayden Planetarium:
Cast of thousands.
Every one a star.

On a church bulletin board:
This church is prayer conditioned.

In a gym:
The world is in bad shape
Must you be, too?

In a real-estate office:
Get lots for little.

In a reducing salon:
A moment on the lips,
an eternity on the hips.

In the window of a general store:
Why go elsewhere to be cheated,
when you can come here? [3]



I wanted small pierced earrings (gold).
You gave me slippers (gray).
My mother said that she would scold
Unless I wrote to say
How much I liked them.

Not Much.

From: If I Were in Charge of the World. . .and Other Worries [4]

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

A 10-gallon hat barely holds 6 pints.

A 'jiffy' is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second.

A jumbo jet uses 4,000 gallons of fuel to take off.

A quarter has 119 grooves on its edge, a dime has one less groove! [5]
