~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
The love of Christ both wounds and heals, it fascinates and frightens, it kills and makes alive, it draws and repulses. There can be nothing more terrible or wonderful than to be stricken with love for Christ so deeply that the whole being goes out in a pained adoration of His person, an adoration that disturbs and disconcerts while it purges and satisfies and relaxes the deep inner heart. - A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), That Incredible Christian
(Christian Quotation of the Day
~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
THE YOUNGER SET
A kindergarten teacher asked, "What is the shape of the earth ?" One lil' girl spoke up: "According to my Daddy - terrible !"
Trying to come to the aid of his Father, who was stopped by an officer for speeding, the lil' tyke piped up, "Yeah ? Well, if we were speeding, so were you !"
Two kids were trying to figure out what game to play. One said, "Let's play doctor." "Good idea." said the other. "You operate, and I'll sue."
I guess you can get too health conscious. The wife and I don't have a lot of "junk food" in the house. Upon eating a snack of some munchies or other my Grandson asked what vitamins they had in them. I told him I doubted there were any at all. He replied wide-eyed, "You mean these are just for fun ?"

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
The little boy greeted his grandmother with a hug and said, "I'm so happy to see you grandma. Now maybe daddy will do the trick he has been promising us." The grandmother was curious. "What trick is that my dear," she asked. The little boy replied, "I heard daddy tell mommy that he would climb the walls if you came to visit us again."

An 80-year-old Japanese man choking on "devil's tongue" was saved by a quick-thinking emergency medical worker and a relative who dislodged the stuck food with a vacuum cleaner, fire officials said on Saturday.
The pensioner living in suburban Osaka was eating sukiyaki on Saturday night with his family when the chewy food got lodged in his throat, they said. Devil's tongue, a grey, spongy paste made from arum root, is often used in Japanese stews and hot pots.
The man fell unconscious and the emergency rescue dispatcher, who responded to a call from the family, advised them at first of other ways of saving him.
When they failed, the dispatcher instructed the man's 25-year-old granddaughter on the proper way to insert the vacuum cleaner tube into the choking man's mouth. The granddaughter then flipped the switch on the vacuum cleaner, and out came the devil's tongue, a local fire official said.
"The use of the vacuum cleaner was the absolute last resort," the fire official said.
