~ WORDS FOR LIFE'S JOURNEY ~

Going to church doesn't make you a christian
anymore than standing in a garage makes you a car.

A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter is not a nice person.


Bills travel through the mail at twice the speed of checks.

Eat well; stay fit; die anyway.


No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes.

Opportunities always look bigger going than coming.



Junk is something you've kept for years and throw away three weeks before you need it.

For every action there is an equal and opposite government program.

And never under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night !

What happened to Summer?



With this crazy weather, It seems as though it just got started and as quick as a flash ...it's over!


I kept waiting for the flowerbeds to fill up and it didn't happen. Come to think about it, we only had to cut the grass about 4 or 5 times.
 I was driving home from work two evenings in July and the car was so chilly that I had to put the heater on. What's with that???

I demand a re-count...there's an awful lot of 90* days missin' somewhere.

~ Attitude ~

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.

Attitude to me, is more important than facts.

It is more important than the past, than education,

than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes,

than what other people think, say or do.

It is more important than appearance giftedness or skill.

It will make or break a company…a church…a home.


The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday

regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.

We cannot change our past…we cannot change the inevitable.

The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.

I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.

And so it is with You. We are in charge of our attitudes. “

~ Over the teacup...

One day a mother was explaining to her young son that you should never tell a lie. She told him that God saw everything and heard everything.
She explained, "Even though your father and I may not know if you are telling a lie God will know."
The young son replied, "But will He tell?"
 
****************

Jennifer's wedding day was fast approaching. Nothing could dampen her excitement --not even her parent's nasty divorce. Her mother had found the PERFECT dress to wear and would be the best dressed mother- of-the-bride ever!

A week later, Jennifer was horrified to learn that her father's new young wife had bought the exact same dress! Jennifer asked her to exchange it, but she refused. Absolutely not, I look like a million bucks in this dress and I'm wearing it, she replied.
Jennifer told her mother who graciously said, “Never mind sweetheart. I'll get another dress. After all, it's your special day.”
A few days later, they went shopping and did find another gorgeous dress.

When they stopped for lunch, Jennifer asked her mother, “Aren't you going to return the other dress? You really don't have another occasion where you could wear it.
Her mother just smiled and replied, 'Of course I do, dear. I'm wearing it to the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding.'


NOW I ASK YOU - IS THERE A WOMAN OUT THERE, ANYWHERE, WHO WOULDN'T ENJOY THIS STORY?

Hope all of you have a GREAT day....
