~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve.
You don't have to have a college degree to serve.
You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve.
You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.

Martin Luther King Jr.

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:

First graders were asked to draw a picture of God in their Sunday School class. Their finished products contained some interesting theology. One child depicted God in the form of a brightly colored rainbow. Another presented him as an old man coming out of the clouds. An intense little boy drew God with a remarkable resemblance to Superman. The best snapshot came from a little girl. She said, "I didn't know what God looked like, so I just drew a picture of my daddy."

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

I was scheduled to fly from North Carolina to Germany, where my husband was stationed in the military.

As I checked in at the airport, the ticket agent asked me some standard security questions.

"Has anyone given you any packages that you didn't pack yourself?" he asked.

I told him that my mother-in-law had given me a parcel to take to her son.

He looked at me very carefully and asked:

"Does she like you?

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:

Young Katie plays tennis with power
And when challenged I quiver and cower,
For her serves (aimed at me!)
Have been measured at three
Hundred thousand (or so) miles per hour.

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Produce, Decoded

Those little stickers on fruits and vegetables at the supermarket aren't just for the checkout
clerk to find the price. You can use the numbers to figure out how the produce you're buying has been grown.

A sticker with four digits means the food was conventionally grown. Five digits starting with
an 8 indicate genetically engineered produce (the food's genetic material has been altered), and five digits starting with a 9 means the food was organically grown (without the use of most conventional pesticides or synthetic fertilizers).

Donít worry if you can't remove all the sticker adhesive - it's required to be safe to eat.
