~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:

The Alphabet Prayer

A little shepherd boy was watching his sheep one Sunday morning and he heard the bells of the church ringing. As he watched the people walk along the pasture where he was, he happened to think to himself, "I would like to communicate with God! But, what can I say to God?" He had never learned a prayer.

So, on bended knee, he began to recite the alphabet. Repeating this prayer several times, a man passing by, heard the boy's voice and peaked through the bushes. He saw the young boy kneeling with folded hands, eyes closed, repeating the alphabet.

He interrupted the boy. "What are you doing, my little one?" he asked.

The boy replied, "I was praying sir." The man seemed surprised and said, "But why are you reciting the alphabet?" The boy explained, "I don't know any prayers, sir. But I want God to take care of me, and to help me care for my sheep. And so I thought, if I said all I knew, He could put the letters together into words, and He would know all that I want and should say!"

The man smiled and said, "Bless your heart, God will!" And he went on to church knowing full well that he had heard the finest sermon he could possibly hear that day.

I enjoy praying the following A,B,C prayer. I start my prayer with the letter A. I think of all the people I know who have a name starting with that letter. As I think of each name I ask God to bless them and pray for any of their needs that come to mind. When I run out of A names I move on to B and so on. I have found this to work well while I have nothing else to do such as: waiting, driving, while going to sleep, etc. Richard Wimer :o)

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

Little three-year-old Robert was asked his name by a neighbor.

"Robert", he replied.

"Robert what?" she queried.

Robert looked puzzled.

"What does your mother say after Robert?"

Robert's eyes lit up." "She says, Robert stop it."

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:

I bought a great new toilet seat recently. On the label was a suggestion on how to clean it. Although nice to have the option, I doubt I'll take advantage of it. My toilet seat, it seems, is "Dishwasher Safe."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Beavers regularly dammed a stream and flooded the access road to our cabin. We broke the dam daily, only to find they'd diligently rebuilt it overnight. We were stumped, until we thought to leave a lighted lantern at the dam site, reasoning that since beavers are nocturnal, we'd trick them into believing it was daytime. The next day we returned to the stream-and discovered the beavers had incorporated the lighted lantern into their dam.
