WITandWISDOM(tm) - May 20, 2002
It is the habitual thought that frames itself into our life. It affects us even more than our intimate social relations do. Our confidential friends have not so much to do in shaping our lives as the thoughts which we harbor. - J. W. Teal
Subjects: Thoughts, Habits
~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Longfellow could take a worthless sheet of paper, write a poem on it, and make it worth $6,000 - that is genius.
Rockefeller could sign his name to a piece of paper and make it worth millions - that is capital.
Uncle Sam can take silver, stamp it, and make it worth $1 - that is money.
A mechanic can take material worth $5 and make an article worth $50 - that is skill.
An artist can take a five-dollar piece of canvas, paint a picture on it, and make it worth $1,000 - that is art.
God can take a worthless, sinful life, wash it in the blood of Christ, put His Spirit in it, and make it a blessing to humanity - that is salvation.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
Passing by the primate area one day, a zoo attendant happens to notice a chimpanzee sitting on a rock with an open book in either hand, looking first at one and then at the other. Upon closer examination, he identifies the books: the Bible, and Darwin's "Origin of Species". Curious, he asks the chimp, "What's with the books?" The chimp replies, "I'm trying to decide whether I'm my brother's keeper, or my keeper's brother."

1 All kittens have blue eyes until they are 3 weeks old.
2 Cats' eyes "glow" because a membrane, the tapetum lucidum, coats the eyes of cats and acts as a reflector of light.
3 A steady diet of dog food can cause your cat to go blind because of the lack of taurine, which cats need for good eyesight.
4 A cat can hear and recognize his owner's footsteps hundreds of feet away.
5 Cats don't walk on their whole foot, only on their toes. This helps them remain silent so they can sneak up on their prey.
