"Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain - and most fools do. But it takes character and self-control to be understanding and forgiving." - Dale Carnegie

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
A group of Geography students studied the Seven Wonders of the World. At the end of that section, the students were asked to list what they considered to be the Seven Wonders of the World. Though there was some disagreement, the following got the most votes:
1. Egypt's Great Pyramids
2. Taj Mahal
3. Grand Canyon
4. Panama Canal
5. Empire State Building
6. St. Peter's Basilica
7. China's Great Wall
While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student, a quiet girl, hadn't turned in her paper yet. So she asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list.
The quiet girl replied, "Yes, a little. I couldn't quite make up my mind because there were so many." The teacher said, "Well, tell us what you have, and maybe we can help." The girl hesitated, then read, "I think the Seven Wonders of the World are:
1. to touch
2. to taste
3. to see
4. to hear
She hesitated a little, "and then
5. to run
6. to laugh
7. and to love."
It is far too easy for us to look at the exploits of man and refer to them as "wonders" while we overlook all God has done, regarding them as merely "ordinary."
May you be reminded today of those things which are truly wondrous.

CHILDREN'S LETTERS TO GOD
Part 2 of 4 [Nov 8, 16, 23, 30]
My brother is a rat. You should give him a tail. Ha Ha.
Maybe Cain and Abel would not kill each other so much if they had their own rooms. It works with my brother.
I want to be just like my Daddy when I get big but not with so much hair all over.
I think the stapler is one of your greatest inventions.
I bet it is very hard for You to love all of everybody in the whole world. There are only 4 people in our family and I can never do it.
If You watch me in church Sunday, I'll show You my new shoes.
I would like to live 900 years like the guy in the Bible.
We read Thomas Edison made light. But in school they said You did it. So I bet he stole your idea.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
The man looked a little worried when the doctor came in to administer his annual physical, so the first thing the doctor did was to ask whether anything was troubling him.
"Well, to tell the truth, Doc, yes," answered the patient.
"You see, I seem to be getting forgetful. No, it's actually worse than that. I'm never sure I can remember where I put the car, or whether I answered a letter, or where I'm going, or what it is I'm going to do once I get there — if I get there. So, I really need your help. What can I do?"
The doctor mused for a moment, then answered in his kindest tones, "Pay me in advance."
