Family
 
A father took his six-year-old daughter on a "date" to their favorite
Restaurant. During the meal, the dad did most of the talking as he
Told his little girl how wonderful she was, how proud he was to be her
Dad, and how special she was to him and to God. After he had done what
He thought was a sufficient job, he picked up his fork and began to
Eat. His daughter put her hand on his arm and stopped him with these
Words, "Longer, Daddy. Longer!" The father said he didn't eat much
Food that day, but his little girl's hungry heart was certainly fed.

I wonder how many of us miss the hungry hearts
That greet us each morning across the breakfast table, wait for us to
Come home each night, or silently long for us to convince them that
They really are not total failures, unworthy and unwanted, but are, in
Fact, special to us and in the eyes of God. How easy it is to lose
Focus and scramble priorities. We get busy doing good things and miss
One of the highest things God created us to attend to -- family.

One of the greatest gifts we can give our family is the gift of a
Guarded tongue. The Psalmist writes, "Set a guard over my mouth, O
Lord: keep watch over the door of my lips"
(Psalm 141:3, NIV). The
Power of the spoken word is great. Words are like seeds. What we plant
Will grow. If we plant negative, destructive, and critical words, we
Will reap a family that is negative, destructive, and critical. Look
For the good in your family -- and then speak it. Be their
Cheerleader! Everyone needs a cheerleader. And the first place we
Should go to find a cheerleader is our family.

CBS released a movie about Karen Carpenter, the talented singer who
Rose to stardom while singing with her brother, Richard. At the young
Age of 32, Karen Carpenter died unexpectedly of heart failure, the
Result of many years of abuse caused by the eating disorder, Anorexia
Nervosa. What amazed and saddened me was the reason for Karen's fatal
Obsession with weight control. It seems that a reporter once called
Her "Richard's chubby sister."

There are days when I desperately want to rip out my unruly
Tongue or reach out and grasp the harsh words I just spoke and stuff
Them back into my mouth. What was I thinking? That's just it. I wasn't
Thinking. We would be wise to ask ourselves these questions before
Speaking:

* T -- Is it true?
* H -- Is it helpful?
* I -- Is it inspiring?
* N -- Is it necessary?
* K -- Is it kind?

WORRY

Is there a magic cutoff period when 
Offspring become accountable for their own 
Actions?

Is there a wonderful moment when 
Parents can become detached spectators in 
The lives of their children and shrug, 'It's 
Their life,' and feel nothing?

 

When I was in my twenties , I stood in a hospital 
Corridor waiting for doctors to put a few 
Stitches in my daughter's head..  I asked, 'When do 
You stop worrying?'  The nurse said, 
'When they get out of the accident stage..'  My 
Dad just smiled faintly and said nothing.


When I was in my thirties, I sat on a little 
Chair in a classroom and heard how one of my 
Children talked incessantly, disrupted the class, 
And was headed for a career making 
License plates.  As if to read my mind, a teacher 
Said, 'Don't worry, they all go through 
This stage and then you can sit back, relax and 
Enjoy them.'  My dad just smiled 
Faintly and said nothing.


When I was in my forties, I spent a lifetime 
Waiting for the phone to ring, the cars to come 
Home, the front door to open.  A friend said, 
'They're trying to find themselves.  Don't! worry, 
In a few years, you can stop worrying..  They'll be 
Adults.'  My dad just smiled faintly 
And said nothing.


By the time I was 50, I was sick & tired of being 
Vulnerable.  I was still worrying over my 
Children, but there was a new wrinkle.  There 
Was nothing I could do about it.  My 
Dad just smiled faintly and said nothing.  I 
Continued to anguish over their failures, be 
Tormented by their frustrations and absorbed in 
Their disappointments.


My friends said that when my kids got married I 
Could stop worrying and lead my own 
Life.  I wanted to believe that, but I was 
Haunted by my dad's warm smile and his 
Occasional, 'You look pale.  Are you all right?  
Call me the minute you get home.  Are 
You depressed about something?'

 

Can it be that parents are sentenced to a 
Lifetime of worry?  Is concern for one another 
Handed down like a torch to blaze the trail of 
Human frailties and the fears of the 
Unknown?  Is concern a curse or is it a virtue 
That elevates us to the highest form of life?

 

One of my children became quite irritable 
Recently, saying to me, 'Where were you?  I've been 
Calling for 3 days, and no one answered I was worried.'

I smiled a warm smile.  
The torch has been passed.
 

Warning

                             from police (NOT a joke)
 
 
                             Warning..!!!!

Just last weekend on Friday night we parked in a public parking area. As we
drove away I noticed a sticker on the rear window of the car. When= I took it
off after I got home, it was a receipt for gas. Luckily my friend told
me not to stop as it could be someone waiting for me to get out of the
car. Then we received this email yesterday:

WARNING FROM POLICE

THIS APPLIES TO BOTH WOMEN AND MEN BEWARE OF PAPER ON
 
 THE BACK WINDOW OF YOUR VEHICLE-- NEW WAY TO DO
 
CARJACKINGS (NOT A JOKE)'
Heads up everyone! Please, keep this circulating.. You walk across the
 
parking lot, unlock your car and get inside You start the engine and
shift into Reverse. When you look into the rearview mirror to back out of your
parking space, you notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear
 
window. So, you shift into Park, unlock your doors, and jump out of your car
 
to remove that paper (or whatever it is) that is obstructing your view. When
 
you reach the back of your car, that is when the car jackers appear out
of nowhere, jump into your car and take off. They practically mow you down
 
as they speed off in your car. And guess what, ladies? I bet your purse is
still in the car. So now the car jacker has your car, your home address, your
money, and your keys. Your home and your whole identity are now
 
compromised!
BEWARE OF THIS NEW SCHEME THAT IS NOW BEING USED.
If you see a piece of paper stuck to your back window, just drive away. Remove the paper later. And be thankful that you read this e-mail. I hope you will forward this to friends and family, especially to women. A purse 
contains all kinds of personal information and identification documents,
and you certainly do NOT want this to fall into the wrong hands.
Please keep this going and tell all your friends

A Holy man was having a conversation with the Lord one day and said, 'Lord, I would like to know what Heaven and Hell are like.'

   
 
 
 

The Lord led the holy man to two doors.

 

 

 

 

He opened one of the doors and the holy man looked in.

 

 

 

 

In the middle of the room was a large round table..

 

 

 

 

 

In the middle of the table was a large pot of stew,

 

 

 

 

 

which smelled delicious and made the holy man's mouth water.

 

 

 

 

 

The people sitting around the table were thin and sickly.

 

 

 

 

 

They appeared to be famished. They were holding spoons with very long handles that were strapped to their arms and each found it possible to reach into the pot of stew and take a spoonful.

 

 

 

 

 

But because the handle was longer than their arms, they could not get the spoons back into their mouths.

 

 

 

 

 

The holy man shuddered at the sight of their misery and suffering.

 

 

 

 

The Lord said, 'You have seen Hell. They went to the next room and opened the door. It was exactly the same as the first one.

 

 

 

There was the large round table with the large pot of stew which made the holy man's mouth water.

 

 

 

 

 

The people were equipped with the same long-handled spoons, but here the people were well nourished and plump, laughing and talking.

 

 

 

 

 

 The holy man said, 'I don't understand.

 

 

 

 

 

'It is simple,' said the Lord. 'It requires but one skill.

 

 

 

 

 

You see, they have learned to feed each other.

 

 

 

 

 

The greedy think only of themselves.


In ancient Greece (469 - 399 BC), Socrates was well known for
his wisdom.

One day the great philosopher came upon an acquaintance who
said excitedly, "Socrates, do you know what I just heard about
one of your students?

"Wait a moment," Socrates replied. "Before telling me anything
I would like you to pass a little test. It's called the Triple
Filter Test."

"Triple filter?"

"That's right," Socrates continued. "Before you talk to me
about my student, it might be a good idea to take a moment and
filter what you're going to say. The first filter is Truth.
Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell
me is true?"

"No," the man said, "actually I just heard about it and ..."

"All right," said Socrates. "So you don't really know if it's
true or not. Now let's try the second filter, the filter of
Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my student
something good?"

"Well, no, on the contrary..."

"So," Socrates continued, "you want to tell me something bad
about him, but you're not certain it's true. You may still pass
the test though, because there's one filter left: the filter
of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my student
going to be useful to me?"

"No, I suppose it isn't really."

"Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is
neither true nor good nor even useful, why tell it to me at
all?"

This is the reason Socrates was a great philosopher and held
in such high esteem. It also explains why he never found out
that his wife.was banging Plato.

THE COLORFUL CITY 

Now 






























Hard to believe isn't it???

MAKES SENSE TO ME....

 

This is from an article in the St. Petersburg Times Newspaper on Sunday.  The Business Section asked readers for ideas on "How Would You Fix the Economy?"  I think this guy nailed it!

Dear Mr. President:

Please find below my suggestion for fixing America 's economy.  Instead of giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following  plan.

You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:

There are about 40 million people over 50 in the workforce.  Pay them each $1 million severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

1) They MUST retire.  Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.

2) They MUST buy a new American car.  Forty million cars ordered - Auto industry fixed.

3) They MUST either buy a house or payoff their existing mortgage - Housing crisis fixed.

It can't get any easier than that!  If more money is needed, have all members of Congress pay their taxes.

If you think this would work, please forward to everyone you know.  If not, please disregard.
