WITandWISDOM(tm) - August 12, 1999
I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent plant. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time. - Jack London

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
I urge you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love that the Spirit gives: join me in praying fervently to God for me. - Romans 15:30 TEV
"I want my friends to pray for me,
To bear my tempted soul above,
And intercede with God for me;
I need the prayers of those I love."
- James D. Vaughan
Father, I praise You for the people whose prayers have made a difference in my life.
By Garrie F. Williams
~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
THINGS CHILDREN SAY & DO:
After putting her children to bed, a mother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew thin. At last she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room, she heard her three-year-old say with a trembling voice, "Who was that?"

I have two sons, ages 8 & 4, and they were discussing Adam and Eve. The 8-year-old asked: "How did Adam and Eve die?"
And the 4-year-old said: "They ate bad fruit."

Our daughter called from North Carolina recently. The family had eaten supper outdoors, enjoying a summer evening. While sitting on the grass my 2-year-old granddaughter, Chelsea, was gazing up at a large bright cumulus cloud.
"Look! Look!" she excitedly pronounced, "Jesus is going to come in a cloud just like that, and He is going to take us all to Florida."
- Noel H. Shanko, Florida
Years ago in a small prairie village the pastor came to visit a family. After the usual conversation, the mother, trying to impress the pastor, said to little Johnny, "Go and get that book that we always read ." So Johnny came back with the Sears catalog.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
A young minister was helping his wife with the dishes meanwhile complaining: "This is not a man's job!" "Oh, yes, it is!" she said, as she quoted from 2 Kings 21:13, "I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it and turning it upside down!"

KOSHIRO'S ANIMATED ORIGAMI PAGE
"I've always wanted to learn origami (the art of folding paper into animals an complex designs). However, still pictures just didn't "do it" for me. Koshiro's pages made it click, though. His animated instructions had me folding cute looking orizurus (cranes) in no time!
