~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
"Socrates taught for 40 years, Plato for 50, Aristotle for 40, and Jesus for only 3. Yet the influence of Christ’s 3-year ministry infinitely transcends the impact left by the combined 130 years of teaching from these men who were among the greatest philosophers of all antiquity. Jesus painted no pictures; yet, some of the finest paintings of Raphael, Michelangelo, and Leonardo da Vinci received their inspiration from Him.
Jesus wrote no poetry; but Dante, Milton, and scores of the world’s greatest poets were inspired by Him. Jesus composed no music; still Haydn, Handel, Beethoven, Bach, and Mendelssohn reached their highest perfection of melody in the hymns, symphonies, and oratories they composed in His praise. Every sphere of human greatness has been enriched by this humble Carpenter of Nazareth. - Henry G. Bosch

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
Because I was concerned he was driving to the cabin in remote country late in the fall, I packed my son a lunch, warm clothing and a blanket in case he needed it. He was appreciative but thought I was being overprotective.
However, when he returned a few days later, he said he was glad I had packed the blanket.
"I'm glad it kept you warm," I said.
"Oh, no," he replied. ”I needed traction for an icy patch of road, so I tore the blanket into pieces to wrap around the tires."

Protect the birds. The dove brings peace and the stork brings tax exemptions.

Martin Luther once spent three days in a black depression over something that had gone wrong. On the third day his wife came downstairs dressed in mourning clothes.
"Who's dead?" he asked her.
"God," she replied.
Luther rebuked her, saying, "What do you mean, God is dead? God cannot die."
"Well," she replied, "the way you've been acting I was sure He had!"
