browniesThis morning around 11 am, my 12 year old son, Michael, and I stopped at a coffee shop so I could get some coffee. Michael came in with me and spied the Chocolate Oreo brownie.

I rarely splurge on treats like this, but since his brother and Dad were away on a scout camp trip, I decided I would pamper Michael a bit and get it for him.

When he was half done, I realized he hadn't even had breakfast yet!

I said "Michael, you need to take care of your body, and breakfast is included in that taking care of it. Your body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit."

After a very short pause, he replied: "But Mom, the Holy Spirit wasn't hungry this morning."

gavelAn assembly line worker at Chrysler was picked for jury duty, but asked the judge to excuse him. "This is a very busy time at the plant, Your Honor, and I need to be there."

"Oh, I see," the judge said. "You're one of those folks who think you're indispensable, that Chrysler can't get along without you."

"No, sir, not at all," the worker replied. "I know they can do just fine without me, but I don't want them to find that out."

"Excused," the judge said.

quote 1917

The most attractive quality a person can have is to love Jesus. Makeup washes off. Looks fade. A heart for God echoes into eternity.

woman 8I had always prided myself on being an "on time" person. One morning I overslept and rushed around getting ready for Sunday school. As I ran out the door, my husband tried to say something.

"What?" I called back. "Don't slow me down. I'm late."

"No you're not," he responded. "It's Saturday."
