~~~~~~~ WITandWISDOM™ - April 2, 1999
You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It's just a matter of paying attention to this miracle. - Paulo Coelho

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
If we believe in Jesus, it is not what we gain but what He pours through us that really counts. God's purpose is not simply to make us beautiful, plump grapes, but to make us grapes so that He may squeeze the sweetness out of us. Our spiritual life cannot be measured by success as the world measures it, but only by what God pours through us - and we cannot measure that at all. - Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
A man and his wife were making their first doctor visit prior to the birth of their first child. After everything checked out, the doctor took a small stamp and stamped the wife's stomach with indelible ink.
The couple was curious about what the stamp was for so when they got home, he dug out his magnifying glass to try to see what it was. In very tiny letters the stamp said, "When you can read this, come back and see me."
One laugh burns 6 calories . . . Laughing is jogging for your insides . . . Laughing heartily 100 times a day has the same benefit as 10 minutes on a rowing machine . . . If you want to know someone, just watch her laugh . . . Laughter is to life what shock absorbers are to a car...It doesn't take the potholes out of the road , but it sure makes the ride easier." - from "Joy Breaks"
