Faith means believing in advance what will only make sense in reverse. - Philip Yancey

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Josh McDowell tells about an executive "headhunter" who recruits corporate executives for large firms. This headhunter once told McDowell that when he interviews an executive, he likes to disarm him. "I offer him a drink," said the headhunter, "take off my coat, undo my tie, throw up my feet and talk about baseball, football, family, whatever, until he’s all relaxed. Then, when I think I’ve got him relaxed, I lean over, look him square in the eye and say, ‘What’s your purpose in life?’ It’s amazing how top executives fall apart at that question."
Then he told about interviewing one fellow recently. He had him all disarmed, had his feet up on his desk, talking about football. Then the headhunter leaned over and said, "What’s your purpose in life, Bob?" And the executive said, without blinking an eye, "To go to heaven and take as many people with me as I can."
"For the first time in my career," said the headhunter, "I was speechless." No wonder. He had encountered someone who was prepared. He was ready. His purpose, "To go to heaven and take as many people with me as I can." You and I might not express it that way, but do you doubt that this is one man who has extra oil for his lamp?

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
Am I using my computer too much?
I warned my son, "You've got a heap of trouble in your shopping cart and you're one click away from check-out!"
I told my daughter, "Ctrl+X your attitude young lady!"
I challenged a co-worker, "If you don't believe me, just Google it!"
My uncle was having a mid-life crisis and I reminded him, "Be careful—when you reformat, important files can get lost."
"Even though Grandma's gone," I consoled my father, "she'll remain in our registry."
When my wife reminded me to do something for the tenth time I replied, "Net congestion made it take longer to download".

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
A customer was continually bothering the waiter in a restaurant; First, he'd asked that the air conditioning be turned up because he was too hot, then he asked it be turned down cause he was too cold, and so on for about half an hour.
Surprisingly, the waiter was very patient, he walked back and forth and never once got angry. So finally, a second customer asked him why he didn't throw out the pest.
"Oh I don't care." said the waiter with a smile. "We don't even have an air conditioner."

Darain Housen has not taken off his hat for the last 20 years. He bathes, he sleeps and does everything possible in it. It is a perfect fit.
But unlike other hats, his is not made of cloth but from the very hair on his head which is why it cannot be removed.
Housen has been sporting his 'natural hat' hairstyle for the last 20 years. The 40-year-old barber who lives in Somerset, St. Thomas said he came up with the idea after some of his friends decided to wear hats to a party but he could not find one to wear.
