  • Fellowship

    man4Lonely and alone, discouraged and empty hearted
    That's when a man needs a brother

    When the burden is heavy, the load too much to bear
    That's when a man needs a brother

    When in despair, and needing someone to care
    That's when a man needs a brother

    When the strong arm on your shoulders make the tears flow free
    That's when a man needs a brother

  • Gifts that Don't Cost a Cent

    *Gifts that Don't Cost a Cent*

    gift1 THE GIFT OF LISTENING - But you must REALLY listen. No interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning your response. Just listening.

    2 THE GIFT OF AFFECTION - Be generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back and handholds. Let these small actions demonstrate the love you have for family and friends.

    3 THE GIFT OF LAUGHTER - Clip cartoons. Share articles and funny stories. Your gift will say, "I love to laugh with you."

    4 THE GIFT OF A WRITTEN NOTE - It can be a simple "Thanks for the help" note or a full sonnet. A brief, handwritten note may be remembered for a lifetime, and may even change a life.

  • Kindness

    ice cream2In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10 year old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him.

    "How much is an ice cream sundae?"

    "Fifty cents," replied the waitress.

    The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied a number of coins in it. "How much is a dish of plain ice cream?" he inquired.

    Some people were now waiting for a table and the waitress was a bit impatient. "Thirty-five cents," she said brusquely.

  • Sharing and Loving From The Heart

    greyhoundsFather O'Shea, the parish priest in the village, was giving a sermon about charity. He said, "The trouble with the world today is that some people have too much and others have too little. We must give of ourselves and our worldly goods to help the less fortunate."

    He said to Harrigan, "If you had ten thousand pounds, wouldn't you give half of it to the poor?"

    He said, "I would that, Father."

    The priest said, "If you had two greyhounds, wouldn't you give one of them to your neighbour next door?"

    Harrigan said, "No."

    The priest said, "And why not?"

    He said, "I have two greyhounds."

  • The Letter

    mailbox2Ruth went to her mail box and there was only one letter. She picked it up and looked at it before opening, but then she looked at the envelope again. There was no stamp, no postmark, only her name and address. She read the letter:

    Dear Ruth:

    I'm going to be in your neighborhood Saturday afternoon and I would like to visit.

    Love Always, Jesus

    Her hands were shaking as she placed the letter on the table.

  • Triple Filter Test, Gossip, Slander

    ancient greeceIn ancient Greece, Socrates was reputed to hold knowledge in high esteem.

    One day an acquaintance met the great philosopher and said, "Do you know what I just heard about your friend?"

    "Hold on a minute," Socrates replied. "Before telling me anything I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test."

    "Triple filter?"
