~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
English evangelist George Whitefield (1714-1770) learned that it was more important to please God than to please men. At one point in his ministry, Whitefield received a vicious letter accusing him of wrongdoing. His reply was brief and courteous: "I thank you heartily for your letter. As for what you and my other enemies are saying against me, I know worse things about myself than you will ever say about me. With love in Christ, George Whitefield."

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
As I pulled into the parking lot at the grocery store, I noticed a car with its headlights on. I jotted down the make, color and license number.
Inside the store I joined the line at the information desk, and when it was my turn, I told the clerk that there was a green Ford in the parking lot that had its lights on and gave her the license number.
"Thank you," she replied, and went on to another customer.
The gentleman next to me asked her indignantly, "Aren't you going to announce it?"
"There's no need," she replied sheepishly. "That's my car."

For years Pensacola, Florida, crossing guard Dale Rooks had tried everything he could think of, including waving his hands and yelling, to get drivers to slow down in front of the school, but nothing worked. So one day he got an old hair dryer and covered it with gray duct tape so that it looked like a radar gun, then started pointing it at speeders. "People are slowing down, raising their hands at me apologetically," he says. "It's amazing how well it works." Fifth graders at his school later raised money to buy Rooks a real radar gun. Rooks remarked that it "looks just like a hair dryer."
