There is a wonderful mythical law of nature that the three things we crave most in life, happiness, freedom, and peace of mind, are always attained by giving them to someone else. - Peyton Conway March

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
“Many people know of William Carey, the ‘father of modern missions.’ But few people have heard of his sister. She was a quadriplegic and had to be carried from bed to couch. For 50 years she lay in bed and prayed for William Carey. She wrote him encouraging letters -- with a pencil between her teeth. Her ministry was perhaps more important because she was a silent partner. Certainly William Carey realized God’s blessing was as much a result of his sister’s commitment to pray for his ministry as was his dedication to serve God.”
- Dan Harrison, A Living Legacy

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
Each Friday night I drove my wife to the station for the train to Weimar, CA, so she could visit her sister who was ill. Ten minutes later, my sister arrived by train from Sacramento to manage our household over the weekend. On Sundays this procedure worked in reverse with my sister departing by train ten minutes before my wife arrived.
One evening after my sister left and while I awaited my wife's arrival, a porter sauntered over.
"Mister," he said, "you are sure some man! But one of these days you are goin' to get caught!"

A car lover has been reunited with his beloved Corvette - 37 years after it was stolen.
The brand-new motor vanished from Alan Poster's garage in New York in 1969, says the Mirror.
But authorities spotted it on a ship bound for Sweden in November and traced it back to Alan, 63.
He said: "It's a miracle. It's probably the only car I've ever really loved."
The 1968 Corvette is now silver instead of blue and lacks a petrol tank and radiator.
But it is worth about £10,223 - three times the price Alan paid.
