Do what you love and love what you're doing, and you'll never work another day in your life. - Author Unknown

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
I thought the "Gallop Poll - What people most want to hear" (Trivia July 37, 1999) was very interesting. It listed the following:
1. I love you
2. I forgive you
3. Dinner is served
It is interesting to note that God provides all these needs:
1. God loves you!
John 3:16 (NIV) - "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
2. He will forgive you!
1 John 1:9 (NIV) - If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
3. "Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine"
John 21:12 (NIV) - Jesus said to them, "Come and have breakfast." None of the disciples dared ask him, "Who are you?" They knew it was the Lord.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
THINGS CHILDREN SAY:
One Sunday in a Midwest city a young child was "acting up" during the morning worship hour. The parents did their best to maintain some sense of order in the pew but were losing the battle. Finally the father picked the little fellow up and walked sternly up the aisle on his way out. Just before reaching the safety of the foyer the little one called loudly to the congregation, "Pray for me! Pray for me!"

As heard on Paul Harvey:
Little Jimmy Smith called up the Baptist Preacher and asked if he would come and pray for his Mommy, who had been sick all week.
"But don't you go to the Methodist Church, Jimmy? Why don't you call your own pastor in to pray with your Mommy?"
"Because," replied Jimmy, "we don't want him to catch whatever she has."

Five-year-old Becky answered the door when the census taker came by. She told the census taker that her daddy was a doctor and wasn't home because he was performing an appendectomy.
"My," said the census taker, "that sure is a big word for such a little girl. Do you know what it means?"
"Sure! Fifteen-hundred bucks, and that doesn't even include the anesthesiologist!"

My two and a half year old walked into the bathroom while I was putting on my make-up. "I'm going to look just like you mommy!"she announced. "Maybe, when you grow up." I told her. "No mommy, tomorrow. I just put on that 'Oil of Old Lady' you always use."

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
A man once counseled his son that if he wanted to live a long life, the secret was to sprinkle a little gunpowder on his Cornflakes every morning.
The son did this religiously, and he lived to the age of 93. When he died, he left 14 children, 28 grand-children, 35 great-grand children, and a 15 foot hole in the wall of the crematorium.

Why are computer defects called "bugs"? . . .
In 1943, Navy officer Grace Hopper found a glitch in her computer. After investigating, she discovered the system had a bug - a real one. Turns out a moth made its way into Hopper's computer.
Though the word "bug" has meant fault or defect since as far back as the 1870's, Hopper's story is credited with making it the synonym of choice in the computer industry.
