The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways , but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness. We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life not life to years. We’ve been all>>>
Yoder the Amish Beagle Beagles are great dogs. They are bred to chase rabbits. But if there aren’t any rabbits around they will chase cats, cars, and boys. And if they are really bored Beagles have even been known to chase girls. Now the nice thing about beagles is that they are short and they stay short all their lives so they are just the right size for little boys. They are brown and black and white and they have long ears that flop when they run. We wanted one. One day, driving the back roads in the Amish country of Ohio, we found one. We bought him from a nice Amish farmer so we named him Yoder. Yoder loved to romp with the kids. We took him with us on our full-moon walks and we even took him fishing once. We had a day of it. He ran>>>
WHO’S THE BOSS? All the organs of the body were having a meeting, trying to decide who was the one in charge ‘I should be in charge,’ said the brain , ‘Because I run all the body’s systems, so without me nothing would happen.’ ‘I should be in charge,’ said the blood , ‘Because I circulate oxygen all over so without me you’d all waste away.’ ‘I should be in charge,’ said the stomach ,‘ Because I process food and give all of you energy.’ ‘I should be in charge,’ said the legs , ‘because I carry the body wherever it needs to go.’ ‘I should be in charge,’ said the eyes, ‘Because I allow the body to see where it goes ‘I should be in charge,’ said the rectum , ‘Because I’m responsible for waste removal.’ All the other body parts laughed at the rectum And insulted him, so in a>>>
F A M I L Y I ran into a stranger as he passed by, “Oh excuse me please” was my reply. He said, “Please excuse me too; I wasn’t watching for you.” We were very polite, this stranger and I. We went on our way and we said goodbye. But at home a different story is told, How we treat our loved ones, young and old. Later that day, cooking the evening meal, My son stood beside me very still. When I turned, I nearly knocked him down. “Move out of the way,” I said with a frown. He walked away, his little heart broken. I didn’t realize how harshly I’d spoken. While I lay awake in bed, God’s still small voice came to me and said, “While dealing with a stranger, common courtesy you use, but the family you love, you seem to abuse. Go and look on>>>
Spiritual Soaking I’d been crazy busy for awhile, too busy to plant my garden and too busy, even to talk to God. Enough! Life’s hectic pace was threatening to knock the last marble of sanity out of my head. I called a time-out. With my garden trowel and flower seeds in hand, I headed outside to plant my garden and talk with my Father in heaven. The sky was clear except for one lone cloud. I was well into my planting and deep in conversation with God by the time that cloud was overhead. An extra large drop of rain splashed down in front of me. “Not now,” I whined. Of all the places to release its rain, I couldn’t believe that cloud chose the one spot on the ground where I was kneeling in the dirt. One after the other, big splats of rain hit the ground around>>>

A BRUSH WITH GOD Widow…… The word strikes a cold dagger into any woman’s heart, but, especially if she is in her forties and raising two pre-teen children. Fran’s husband had died of cancer, leaving her with mountains of debt, no life insurance, no savings. She was in that abyss of shock and disbelief which joins arms with grief, oblivious to the physical condition of her surroundings. Projects aborted by illness remained unfinished. Tools had been left on a workbench, purchased supplies were bundled in their hardware store wrappings, and paint cans were neatly lined up against a cellar wall. In addition to partially completed repairs and revamping inside, the outside of the house had become a victim of the cruel winter weather, faded and neglected, the way Fran’s heart felt when faced with the seemingly insurmountable tasks left for her. Winter mercifully ended and the spring thaw nudged her>>>
