"NEVER ARGUE WITH A CHILD"

**********************************************************

A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said
it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because
even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small.

The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the
teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human;
it was physically impossible.

The little girl said, "When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah".
The teacher asked, "What if Jonah went to hell?"
The little girl replied, "Then you ask him".


**********************************************************
A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while
they drew. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's
work. As she got to one little girl who was working diligently,
she asked what the drawing was?

The girl replied, "I'm drawing God." The teacher paused and said,
"But no one knows what God looks like."

Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl
replied, "They will in a minute."

**********************************************************

The children had all been photographed, and the teacher was trying to
persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture
"Just think how nice it will be to look at it when you are all grown up and say,
'There's Jennifer; she's a lawyer,' or 'That's Michael. He's a doctor.'"

A small voice at the back of the room rang out,
"And there's the teacher. She's dead."

**********************************************************

A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood. Trying
to make the matter clearer, she said, "Now, class, if I stood on my
head, the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the face."

"Yes," the class said. "Then why is it that while I am standing upright
in the ordinary position the blood doesn't run into my feet?" A little
fellow shouted, "Cause your feet ain't empty."

**********************************************************
The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary
school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples.
The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray:

"Take only ONE. God is watching." Moving further along the lunch line,
at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies.
A child had written a note, "Take all you want. God is watching the
apples."

HEART WORMERS

100 Days Together!!!

Peter and Tina are sitting in the park doing nothing but just gazing
into the sky, while all their friends are having fun with their better
halves.

Tina: I'm so bored. Just wish I had a boyfriend now to spend time with.

Peter: I guess we're the only ones left out. We're the only two who
don't have dates now.

(Both are silent)

Tina: I think I have an idea. Lets play a game.

Peter: Huh? What game?

Tina: Mmmm...It's quite simple. You be my boyfriend for 100 days and
I'll be your girlfriend for 100 days. What do you think?

Peter: Well! I don't think I have any plans for the next few months so why not?

Tina: You sound like you aren't really looking forward to it at all.
Cheer up. Today will be our first day and our first date. So, where
should we go?

Peter: What about a movie? I heard there is this really great movie
playing in the theatre now.

Tina: I can't think of anything better, so...let's move.

(Went to watch the movie and sent each other home)

Day 2:

Peter and Tina went to a concert together, and Peter bought Tina a key
chain with a star.

Day 3:

They went shopping together for a friend's birthday present. Shared an
ice cream together and hugged each other for the first time.

Day 7:

Peter drove Tina up onto a mountain and they watch the sunset
together. When the night came and the moon glowed, they said sat on
the grass gazing at the stars together. A meteor passed by. Tina
mumbled something.

Day 25:

Spent time at a theme park and got onto roller coasters, ate hotdogs
and cotton candy. Peter and Tina got in the haunted house and Tina
grabbed someone's hand instead of Peter's hand by accident. They
rolled in laughter thinking about it, later.

Day 67:

They drove pass a circus and decided to get in to watch the show. The
midget asked Tina to play a part as his assistant in the magic show.
Went around to see other entertainments around after the show. Came to
a fortune teller and she just said "Treasure every moment from now on"
and a tear rolled down the fortune teller's cheek.

Day 84:

Tina suggested that they go to the beach. The beach wasn't so crowded
that day. They have their first kiss with each other just as the sun
is setting.

Day 99:

They decide to have a simple day and choose to walk around the city.

1:23 pm

Tina: I'm thirsty. Lets rest for a while.

Peter: Wait here while I go buy some drinks. What would you like?

Tina: Mmm...Apple juice will be just fine.

1:43 pm

Tina waits for about 20 minutes but Peter still hasn't returned. Then
someone walked up to her.

Stranger: Are you Tina?

Tina: Yes, and may I help you?

Stranger: Just now down there on the street a drunk driver has crashed
into a guy. I think it's your friend.

Tina ran over to the spot with the stranger and sees Peter lying on
the floor with blood over his face and her apple juice still in his
hands. The ambulance came and she went to the hospital with Peter.

Tina sat outside the emergency room for five and a half hours. The
doctor comes out...

11:51 pm

Doctor: I'm sorry, but we did the best we could. He is still breathing
now but God will take him away from us very soon.

We found this letter in his pocket.

The doctor hands over the letter to Tina and she goes into the room to
see Peter. He looks weak but peaceful. Tina read the letter and then
she burst into tears. Here is what the letter said.

Tina, our 100 days is almost over. I had fun with you during all these
days. Although you may have been greedy sometimes and less thoughtful,
you yet brought happiness into my life. I have realized that you are a
really cute girl and blamed myself for never have taken the time to
knowing you before. I have nothing much to ask for. But I just wish
that we could extend our days. I want to be your boyfriend...forever,
and wish that you be beside me all the time.

Tina, I love you.

11:58

Tina: (sobbing) Peter. Do you know what was the wish I made on the
night there was a meteor. I asked God to let us last forever. We were
supposed to last 100 days, Peter! You can't leave me! I LOVE YOU. Can
you please come back to me now? I love you Peter. I LOVE YOU.

As the clock struck twelve, Peter's heart stopped beating. It was 100 days.

Tell the guy or girl that you love them before its too late. You never
know what's going to happen tomorrow. You never know who will be
leaving you, never to return.

*Please pass this on to all you know...you do not know who's close to
their 100th day!

Glass of Milk

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way
through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He
decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his
nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked
for a drink of water.


She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank
it slowly, and then asked, "How much do I owe you?"

"You don't owe me anything," she replied. "Mother has taught us never to
accept pay for a kindness."

He said..... "Then I thank you from my heart." As Howard Kelly left that
house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man
was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.

Year's later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were
baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in
specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for
the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a
strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall
of the hospital to her room.

Dressed in his doctor's gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at
once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to
save her life. From that day he gave special attention to the case.

After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business
office to pass the final bill to him for approval.



He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to
her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of
her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her
attention on the side of the bill.


She read these words.....

"Paid in full with one glass of milk"

(Signed)

Dr. Howard Kelly.

Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed:
"Thank You, God, that Your love has spread abroad
through human hearts and
hands."

P u p p i e s F o r S a l e

A store owner was tacking a sign above his door that read "Puppies For Sale." Signs like that have a way of attracting small children, and sure enough, a little boy appeared under the store owner's sign. "How much are you going to sell the puppies for?" he asked.

The store owner replied, "Anywhere from to ." The little boy reached in his pocket and pulled out some change. "I have .37," he said. "Can I please look at them?" The store owner smiled and whistled and out of
the kennel came Lady, who ran down the aisle of his store followed by five teeny, tiny balls of fur. One puppy was lagging considerably behind.

Immediately the little boy singled out the lagging, limping puppy and said, "What's wrong with that little dog?" The store owner explained that the veterinarian had examined the little puppy and had discovered it didn't have a hip socket. It would always limp. It would always be lame. The little boy became excited. "That is the puppy that I want to buy." The store owner said, "No, you don't want to buy that little dog. If you really want him, I'll just give him to you." The little boy got quite upset. He looked straight into the store owner's eyes, pointing his finger, and said, "I don't want you to give him to me. That little dog is worth every bit as much as all the other dogs and I'll pay full price. In fact, I'll give you .37 now, and 50 cents a month until I have him paid for." The store owner countered,

"You really don't want to buy this little dog. He is never going to be able to run and jump and play with you like the other puppies." To his surprise, the little boy reached down and rolled up his pant leg to reveal a badly twisted, crippled left leg supported by a big metal brace.

He looked up at the store owner and softly replied, "Well, I don't run so well myself, and the little puppy will need someone who understands!" We ALL need someone who Understands!
!


T r u e F r i e n d s h i p

Horror gripped the heart of the World War I soldier as he saw his lifelong friend fall in battle. Caught in a trench with continuous gunfire whizzing over his head, the soldier asked his lieutenant if he might go out into the "No Man's Land" between the trenches to bring his fallen comrade back.

"You can go," said the Lieutenant, "but I don't think it will be worth it. Your friend is probably dead and you may throw your own life away." The Lieutenant's words didn't matter, and the soldier went anyway. Miraculously he managed to reach his friend, hoist him onto his shoulder, and bring him back to their company's trench.

As the two of them tumbled in together to the bottom of the trench, the officer checked the wounded soldier, then looked kindly at his friend. "I told you it wouldn't be worth it," he said.

"Your friend is dead, and you are mortally wounded."

"It was worth it, though, sir," the soldier said.

"How do you mean, 'worth it'?" responded the Lieutenant. "Your friend is dead!"

"Yes sir," the private answered.

We often learn the most from our children. Some time ago, a friend of mine punished his 3-year-old
daughter for wasting a roll of gold wrapping paper. Money was tight, and he became infuriated when
the child tried to decorate a box.

Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her father the next morning and said, "This is for you, Daddy." He was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found that the box was empty. He yelled at her, "Don't you know that when you give someone a present, there's supposed to be something inside of it?" The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and said,

"Oh, Daddy it's not empty. I blew kisses into the box.

All for you, Daddy." The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little girl, and he begged her forgiveness.

My friend told me that he kept that gold box by his bed for years.

Whenever he was discouraged, he would take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love
of the child who had put it there.

Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge.

The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.

The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

When his mother asked him what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said,

"Nothing, I just helped him cry."

A father just came home from work. His son was waiting for him at the door. As he came in, his son asked "How much do you make an hour, daddy?" Being tired from work the man was very angry that his son had asked him this. He said "Your mother doesn't even know that!" "But please daddy, how much do you make an hour?" The man said

"Fine, I make 25$ an hour." Hearing that the son left the room.

After some time, his son came back to him and asked, " Daddy will you please give me 10$?"

But he was too tired to do anything. So he just told his son to leave him alone.

That night he felt bad for the way he treated his little boy. So he got out of bed and went to his

son's room. The boy was still awake. He went over to him and gave him the he had asked

for. Immediately the son picked up his piggybank, took out all the money from it and kept

everything on his daddy's hand. The man didn't understand what's going on, so he asked

his son, "What's the matter son?" His son replied," Daddy I want to buy one hour of your time......."

A N E Y E W A R M E R

There was a skinny young boy who loved football with all his heart. Practice after practice, he eagerly gave everything he had. But being half the size of the boys, he got absolutely nowhere. At all the games this hopeful athlete sat on the bench and hardly ever played.

This teenager lived alone with his father, and the two of them had a very special relationship. Even though the son was always on the bench, his father was always in the stands cheering. He never missed a game. This young man was still the smallest of the class when he entered high school. But his father continued to encourage him but also made it very clear that he did not have to play football if he didn't want to. But the young man loved football and decided to hang in there. He was determined to try his best at every practice, and perhaps he'd get to play when he became a senior.

All through high school he never missed a practice nor a game, but remained a bench-warmer all four years. His faithful father was always in the stands, always with words of encouragement for him. When the young man went to college, he decided to try out for the football team as a "walk-in." Everyone was sure he could never make the cut, but he did. The coach admitted that he kept him on the roster because he always puts his heart and soul into every practice, and at the same time, provided the other members with the spirit and hustle they badly needed. The news that he had survived the cut thrilled him so much that he rushed to the nearest phone and called his father. His father shared his excitement and was sent season tickets for all the college games.

This persistent young athlete never missed practice during his four years at college, but he never got to play in a game. It was the end of his senior football season, and as he trotted onto the practice field shortly before the big playoff game, the coach met him with a telegram. The young man read the telegram and he became deathly silent. Swallowing hard, he mumbled to the coach, "My father died this morning. Is it all right if I miss practice today?" The coach put his arm gently around his shoulder and said, "Take the rest of the week off, son. And don't even plan to come back to the game on Saturday." Saturday arrived, and the game was not going well. In the third quarter, when the team was ten points behind, a silent young man quietly slipped into the empty locker room and put on his football gear. As he ran onto the sidelines, the coach and his players were astounded to see their faithful teammate back so soon. "Coach, please let me play. I've just got to play today," said the young man.

The coach pretended not to hear him. There was no way he wanted his worst player inthis close playoff game. But the young man persisted, and finally feeling sorry for the kid, the coach gave in. "All right," he said. "You can go in." Before long, the coach, the players and everyone in the stands could not believe their eyes. This little unknown, who had never played before was doing everything right. The opposing team could not stop him. He ran, he passed, blocked, and tackled like a star. His team began to triumph. The score was soon tied. In the closing seconds of the game, this kid intercepted a pass and ran all the way for the winning touchdown. The fans broke loose. His teammates hoisted him onto their shoulders. Such cheering you never heard. Finally, after the stands had emptied and the team had showered and left the locker room, the coach noticed that this young man was sitting quietly in the corner all alone. The coach came to him and said, "Kid, I can't believe it. You were fantastic! Tell me what got into you?

How did you do it?" He looked at the coach, with tears in his eyes,

and said, "Well, you knew my Dad died, but did you know that he was blind?"

The young man swallowed hard and forced a smile, "Dad came to all my games,

but today was the first time he could see me play, and I wanted to show him

I could do it!"

H o w M a n y F r i e n d s ?

The old man turned to me and asked, "How many friends have you?"
Why 10 or 20 friends have I, And named off just a few He rose quite slow with effort and sadly shook his head

"A lucky child you are to have so many friends," he said, But think of what you're saying

There is so much you do not know A friend is just not someone to whom you say "Hello".

A friends lends a tender shoulder on which to softly cry A well to pour your troubles down And raise your spirits high

A friend is a hand to pull you up from darkness and despair...

When all your other "so called" friends have helped to put you there A true friend is an ally who can't be moved or bought A voice to keep your name alive When others have forgot

But most of all a friend is a heart A strong and sturdy wall

For from the hearts of friends there comes the greatest love of all!

So think of what I've spoken for every word is true

And answer once again my child, "How many friends have you?"

And then he stood and faced me Awaiting my reply....



A Wonderful Way to explain Death

A sick man turned to his doctor, as he was preparing to leave the examination room and said, "Doctor, I am afraid to die. Tell me what lies on the other side."

Very quietly, the doctor said, "I don't know." "You don't know? You, a Christian man,
do not know what is on the other side?"

The doctor was holding the handle of the door; on the other side came a sound of scratching and whining, and as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room and leaped on him with an eager show of gladness. Turning to the patient, the doctor said, "Did you notice my dog? He's never been in this room before. He didn't know what was inside. He knew nothing except that his master was here, and when the door opened, he sprang in without fear. I know little of what is on the other side of death, but I do know one thing...

I know my Master is there and that is enough."

May today there be peace within you. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

Listen or Wait


A young and successful executive was traveling down a neighborhood street, going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar. He was watching for kids running out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something.

As his car passed, no children appeared. Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag's side door! He slammed on the brakes and reversed back to the spot from where the brick had been thrown. He jumped out of the car, grabbed the kid who threw the brick and pushed him against parked car shouting. "What was that all about? Just what the heck are you doing?"

Building a head of steam he went on. "That's a new car and that brick you threw is going to cost a lot of money!!"

"Please, mister, please. I'm sorry, I didn't know what else to do!!" pleaded the youngster. "I threw the brick because no one else would stop..." tears were dripping down the boy's chin as he pointed around the parked car. "It's my brother," he said. "He rolled off the curb and fell out of his wheelchair and I can't lift him up." Sobbing, the boy asked the executive, "Would you please help me get him back into his wheelchair? He's hurt and he's too heavy for me."

Moved beyond words, the driver tried to swallow the rapidly swelling lump in his throat. He lifted the young man back into the wheelchair and took out his handkerchief and wiped the scrapes and cuts, checking to see that everything was going to be okay. "Thank you and May God bless you," the grateful child said to him. The man then watched the little boy push his brother down the sidewalk toward their home.

It was a long walk back to his Jaguar ... a long, slow walk. He never did repair the side door. He kept the dent to remind him not to go through life so fast that someone has to throw a brick at you to get your attention.

God whispers in your soul and speaks to your heart. Sometimes when you don't have time to listen, He has to throw a "brick" at you...

It's your choice:
Listen to the whisper, or wait for the brick...


An 'UN-FORGETTABLE' Love...


It was a busy morning, approximately 8:30 am, when an elderly gentleman, in his 80s, showed up to have sutures (stitches)removed from his thumb. He stated that he was in a hurry, as he had an appointment at 9:00 am.

I took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would to able to see him. I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound.

On examination, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors,and got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound.

While taking care of his wound, we began to engage in conversation. I asked him if he had a doctor's appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry. The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife.

I then inquired as to her health. He told me that she had been there for a while, and that she was a victim of Alzheimer Disease.

As we talked, and I finished dressing his wound, I asked if she would be worried if he was a bit late. He replied that she no longer knew who he was, that she had not recognized him in five years now.

I was surprised, and asked him. "And you are still going every morning, even though she doesn't know who you are?" He smiled as he patted my hand and said, "She doesn't know me,but I still know who she is."

I had to hold back tears as he left, I had goose bumps on my arm and thought, "That is the kind of love I want in my life." ........She was one fortunate lady.

True love is neither physical, nor romantic. True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be and will not be.

Slave Boy and the Dog

Once Abdullah Bin Jafar (ra) was passing through a forest when he went by an orchard where an Abyssinian (Ethiopian) slave was working. Someone brought him his food and, at the same time a stray dog came into the garden, and stood by the slave, who threw a loaf of bread to the dog, which ate it but did not go away.

The slave-boy threw it a second loaf and a third one, thus letting it eat the whole of his daily provision of food, keeping nothing back for himself. Abdullah bin Jafar, who had been watching this, said to the boy, "How much bread
do you get as your daily ration of food?" The boy said, "I get three loaves everyday, as you have just seen." Ibn Jafar asked, "Then, why did you prefer a dog to yourself and feed it all the three loaves?" The boy said, "There are no dogs living round here.

The poor creature must have travelled a long distance to reach here and it must be feeling very hungry. So, I felt ashamed to send it away, without serving it any food." Ibn Jafar said, "What will you have for food today?" The boy said, "I shall go without food for a day, which I don't mind." Ibn Jafar said to himself, "People criticise you
for spending too liberally, but this slave-boy is far more generous than you." After this he came back to the town and, after purchasing the slave-boy, the garden and all the other effects therein from the owner, he set free the
slave-boy and gave him the garden as a gift.

Decision Making.

Here is a small story on decision making. Please go through the story very carefully to get the sense of it.

Which one will you choose?


A group of children were playing near two railway tracks, one still in use while the other disused. Only one child played on the disused track, the rest on the operational track. The train came, and you were just beside the track interchange. You could make the train change its course to the disused track and saved most of the kids. However, that would also mean the lone child playing by the disused track would be sacrificed. Or would you rather let the train go its way? Let's take a pause to think what kind of decision we could make............

.. No cheating...

Most people might choose to divert the course of the train,and sacrifice only one child. You might think the same way, I guess. Exactly, I thought the same way initially because to save most of the children at the expense of only one child was rational decision most people would make, morally and emotionally. But, have you ever thought that the child choosing to play on the disused track had in fact made the right decision to play at a safe place? Nevertheless, he had to be sacrificed because of his ignorant friends who chose to play where the danger was.

This kind of dilemma happens around us everyday. In the office, community, in politics and especially in a democratic society, the minority is often sacrificed for the interest of the majority, no matter how foolish or ignorant the majority are, and how farsighted and knowledgeable the minority are. The child who chose not to play with the rest on the operational track was sidelined. And in the case he was sacrificed, no one would shed a tear for him.

The friend who forwarded me the story said he would not try to change the course of the train because he believed that the kids playing on the operational track should have known very well that track was still in use,and that they should have run away if they heard the train's sirens. If the train was diverted, that lone child would definitely die because he never thought the train could come over to that track! Moreover, that track was not in use probably because it was not safe. If the train was diverted to the track, we could put the lives of all passengers on board at stake! And in your attempt to save a few kids by sacrificing one child, you might end up sacrificing hundreds of people to save these few kids.

While we are all aware that life is full of tough decisions that need to be made,we may not realize that hasty decisions may not always be the right one "Remember that what's right isn't always popular... and what's popular isn't always right."


The Bill

A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a .00 bill. In the room of 200, he asked,
"Who would like this bill?" Hands started going up.

He said, "I am going to give this to one of you but first, let me do this.
He proceeded to crumple up the dollar bill. He then asked,
"Who still wants it?" Still the hands were up in the air.

Well, he replied, "What if I do this?" And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. "Now, who still wants it?" Still the hands went into the air.

My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson.

No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth .

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.

Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who DO love you.

The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but by
God who loves us.

You are special - Don't EVER forget it."

Count your blessings, not your problems.


Think before you regret,too!!!

Once, a group of people were traveling on rocks at night. A voice came from the sky that whosoever picks up the rocks will regret and whosoever doesn't pick up the rocks will regret. Now, the people were confused.

How can this be?

Whether you pick up the rocks or not, you will regret! Anyway, some people picked up the rocks and some didn't.

In the morning when they reached their homes, they saw that the rocks turned into diamonds. Now, those people who didn't pick up the rocks started regretting saying "If only we had picked up some rocks."

Those people who did pick some rocks also started regretting saying

"Why didn't we pick up more rocks?"

Both sides ended up regretting.
