~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
My almost-1-year-old son is experimenting with sounds and words. Somewhere along the way he picked up the phrase "all done."
Each evening, as our tradition goes, I sit down with him after his bath and read to him from the "My Bible Friends" books. When the story is finished, I offer a little prayer.
This week our prayer ended with "in Jesus' name . . ." Before I could say "Amen," my son added his little bit: "All done!"
Sometimes my faith could be a bit stronger if I would pray, "In Jesus' name, all done!"

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
What is one to do? Which is right?
Beware of Greeks bearing gifts.
Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.
A silent man is a wise one.
A man without words is a man without thoughts.
Look before you leap.
He who hesitates is lost.
Many hands make light work.
Too many cooks spoil the broth.
Actions speak louder than words.
The pen is mightier than the sword.
Clothes make the man.
Don't judge a book by its cover.
It's the squeaky wheel that gets the grease.
The nail that sticks out gets hammered.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Better safe than sorry.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
My husband's cousin married a former Marine who now works for United Parcel Service. They bought their four-year-old son two stuffed bears--one in a UPS uniform and the other in Marine garb.
When the boy seemed confused, his father brought out a picture of himself in full Marine dress.
"See, Connor?" he explained, pointing to the photo and then to the bear. "That's Daddy."
Connor's eyes went from one to the other, and then he asked in a puzzled voice, "You used to be a bear?"

When we see a PDF file, we think of Adobe Acrobat, just as with zipped files we think of WinZip. But there are alternatives to both. With PDF, the stuff of which eBooks are made, if you're only needing a casual PDF writer and not interested in purchasing the Adobe Acrobat, there are at least two PDF writers that might suffice:
Free PDF at:
and GhostScript at:
Remember, Acrobat is free for reading pdf, but the full package necessary to write into that format costs $249 but still a worthwhile product if you're going to do a lot of work in that arena.
