A couple of quotes and a short story to begin the week:
** "If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome."
    -- Anne Bradstreet
** Many children in America today have more parents; than parents have children."
    -- Quote from a speaker on the Church Channel
** Peace is seeing a sunset and knowing who to thank for it!"
    -- unknown
-- "I believe in one God, the Creator of the Universe."
    -- Abraham Lincoln
Generous Giving
The story is told of a farmer who was known for his generous giving, and whose friends could not understand how he could gove so much and yet remain so prosperous.
One day a friend said, "We can't understand it. You give far more than any of the rest of us, and yet you always seem to have more to give."
"That's easy to explain," the farmer said. "I keep shoveling into God's bin, and God keeps shoveling back into mine, and God has the bigger shovel."
