    "The day before I die, I'm going to sell every piece we've got just to see how much it's all worth."

    "But you couldn't possibly know the day before you were going to die, so how could you sell it."

    "Simple: If I sell it, my wife would kill me!"

  • Missed OpportunityPreparing for a tag sale at our house, my wife and I decided to put out a mirror we'd received as a wedding gift. Because of its garish aqua colored metal frame we just couldn't find a room in our house where it looked good. Shortly after the tag sale started, a man looking to decorate his apartment bought it for one dollar.

    "This is a great deal," he said excitedly. "It still has the plastic on it."

    Then he peeled off the aqua colored protective covering to reveal a beautiful gold finished frame.

  • mountain lakeThank You, GOD for everything
    I've experienced here on earth.
    Thank You for protecting me
    from the moment of my birth.

    And Thank You for the beauty
    around me everywhere,
    The gentle rain and glistening dew,
    the sunshine and the air.
