Story:Are you God's wife?

An Eye Witness Account from New York City, on a cold day in December: A little boy about 10 years old was standing before a shoe store on the roadway, barefooted, peering through the window, and shivering with cold.  A lady approached the boy and said, "My little fellow, why are you looking so earnestly in that window?" "I was asking God to give me a pair of shoes," was the boys reply.  The lady took him by the hand and went into the store and asked the clerk to get half a dozen pairs of socks for the boy. She then asked if he could give her a basin of water and a towel. He quickly brought them to her.  She took the little fellow to the back part of the store and, removing her gloves, knelt down, washed his little feet, and dried them with a towel. By this time the clerk had returned with the socks.  Placing a pair upon the boy's feet, she purchased him a pair of shoes. She tied up the remaining pairs of socks and gave them to him.  She patted him on t

Story:God's Choice

Most women become mothers by accident, some by choice, a few by social pressures, and a couple by habit. This year, nearly 100,000 women will become mothers of handicapped children. Did you ever wonder how mothers of handicapped children are chosen? Somehow I visualize God hovering over Earth selecting his instruments for propagation with great care and deliberation. As he observes, he instructs his angels to make notes in a giant ledger. "Armstrong, Beth; son; patron saint, Matthew. "Forrest, Marjorie; daughter; patron saint, Cecelia. "Rudledge, Carrie; twins; patron saint.... give her Gerard. He's used to profanity." Finally, he passes a name to an angel and smiles, "Give her a handicapped child." The angel is curious. "Why this one, God? She's so happy." "Exactly," smiles God. "Could I give a handicapped child a mother who does not know laughter? That would be cruel." "But has she patience?" asks th

An angel known as Mom

Once upon a time there was a child ready to be born. The child asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?" God replied, "Among the many angels, I chose one for you. Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you." The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy." God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you every day. And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy." Again the child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?" God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak." "And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"

Quotes about Children by Famous Persons

Story: Don't Listen to Others

Once upon a time there was a race ... of frogs The goal was to reach the top of a high tower. Many people gathered to see and support them. The race began.  In reality, the people probably didn’t believe that it was possible that the frogs reached the top of the tower, and all the phrases that one could here were of this kind : "What pain !!! They’ll never make it!" The frogs began to resign, except for one who kept on climbing The people continued : "... What pain !!! They’ll never make it!..."  And the frogs admitted defeat, except for the frog who continued to insist. At the end, all the frogs quit, except the one who, alone and with and enormous effort, reached the top of the tower. The others wanted to know how did he do it. One of them approached him to ask him how he had done it, to finish the race.  And discovered that he... was deaf! ... Never listen to people who have the bad habit of being negative... because they steal the best aspirations of you

Who is a good friend?

A good friend is Someone that warms Your heart each time They cross your mind. Like the fluttering Of butterfly wings, Thoughts of you Often cross my mind Keeping my heart nice And warm all the time!

Funny:Cartoon Laws of Physics

      Cartoon Law I Any body suspended in space will remain in space until made aware of its situation. Daffy Duck steps off a cliff, expecting further pastureland. He loiters in midair, soliloquizing flippantly, until he chances to look down. At this point, the familiar principle of 32 feet per second per second takes over. Cartoon Law II Any body in motion will tend to remain in motion until solid matter intervenes suddenly. Whether shot from a cannon or in hot pursuit on foot, cartoon characters are so absolute in their momentum that only a telephone pole or an outsize boulder retards their forward motion absolutely. Sir Isaac Newton called this sudden termination of motion the stooge's surcease. Cartoon Law III Any body passing through solid matter will leave a perforation conforming to its perimeter. Also called the silhouette of passage, this phenomenon is the speciality of victims of directed-pressure explosions and of reckless cowards who are so eager to escape th

Thought for the day

"To dream anything that you want to dream, that is the beauty of the human mind. To do anything that you want to do, that is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself, to test your limits, that is the courage to succeed." - Bernard Edmonds

Don't be like me

When I was in the 8th grade, i met a boy there named ricky. We were in the same homeroom and the same p.E. Class, and we started to talk and be friends right off the bat. Well, as I started learning more and more about him, I learned that this wasnt his 1st year in the 8th grade, and it wasnt his 2nd or 3rd either. This was his 4th year in the eigth grade. I soon learned that he had a problem, or actually had 2 problems.  First, he smoked a lot. Second, he did drugs. Not soon after that, a teacher told me that she and some other teachers had tried to help him quit a few years before, and he wanted to just as badly, but his body started rejecting the fact that it didnt have the drugs in his system; so he eventually fell back to doing them both. One day a month or two after I was told this by this teacher, we were in p.E. And he hadnt said a single word the whole period. Then, all of a sudden he said something to me. He said, "dont be like me." that was all he sa

Get Inspired: Tell them how you feel

A while ago, I had a question. It was "Why do we dream when it never turns into reality and only dissapoints us?" I never got the answer from my friends, they couldn't answer it. But after much soul-searching, I think I've found the answer to this burning question. As I lay in bed one night, overcome with depression and dispair. I had no idea where my life was going, or where things would end up. I could see no end to my sadness, and no light. There was nothing to look forward to, and nothing to look back on and smile. The things were there, I see that now, but at the time there was a misty fog over them. Now, if asked to think back and smile, I could do it for hours, but for those few hours that night I could find none. As I read over my diary - ah, my diary. The one true thing I've trusted. The only one who knows it all. I've kept it for almost a year now and the joy it brings to know there's somewhere I can truely express myself. But as I read over the

Funny:Windows Taglines

After first seeing Microsoft's slogan for its Windows Vista operating system, "Wow", I couldn't help wondering: what were the slogans for all the previous releases? After thinking about it for a while, they became obvious. Windows 1.0: Good joke, eh? Windows 2.0: Still funny, isn't it? Windows 286: Yeah, we're still kidding. Windows 386: Going boldly where Desqview has been for years. Windows 3.0: It's finally worth buying! Windows 3.1: It's finally worth using! Windows 95: Going boldly where the Mac has been for years. Windows 98: More usable! Less stable! Windows 98SE: More stable! Less usable! Windows ME: Less usable AND less stable! NT 1.0: Give me more hardware! NOW!!! NT 2.0: Dammit, I said MORE HARDWARE!!! NOW!!!! NT 3.0: Which part of "more hardware" do you not understand? NT 3.5: With enough hardware, I'd work. Honest. NT 4.0: Does less than Win98 with twice the hardware at one-half the speed.

Poem:Girl in the Mirror

When you get what you want In your struggle for self And the world makes you queen for a day, Go to the mirror and look at yourself And see what that girl has to say. For it isn't your father Or mother or man Whose Judgements on you must pass The person whose verdict counts most in life Is the girl staring back in the glass She's the one to please Never mind all the rest, For she's with you clear to the end. And you've past your most difficult and dangerous test If that girl in the glass is your friend. You can fool all the world down the pathway of years, And get pats on the back as you pass. But, your final reward Will be heartaches and tears If you've cheated that girl in the glass I didnt write this- the author is unknown

Fun:Do you have an Email-id? Then, You must read this

An unemployed man goes to try for a job with Microsoft as a cleaner. The manager there arranges for an aptitude test (Section: Floors, sweeping of). After the test, the manager says: You will be appointed on the scale of $30 per day. Let me have your e-mail address, so that I can send you a form to complete and advise you where to report for work on your first day. Taken aback, the unemployed man protests that he is neither in possession of a computer nor of an e-mail address. To this the MS manager replies: Well, then, that really means that you virtually don't exist and can therefore hardly expect to be employed. Stunned, the man leaves. Not knowing where to turn and only having about $10 left, he decides to buy a 10 kg box of tomatoes at the supermarket. Within less than 2 hours, he sells the tomatoes singly at 100% profit. Repeating the process several times more that day, he ends up with almost a $100 before going to sleep that night. And thus it dawns on the man that he c

Quotable Quotes

"Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart." To handle yourself, use your head; To handle others, use your heart. Anger is only one letter short of danger. If someone betrays you once, it's his fault; If he betrays you twice, it's your fault. Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people. God gives every bird its food, But he does not throw it into its nest. He who loses money, loses much; He who loses a friend, loses more; He who loses faith, loses all. Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, But beautiful old people are works of art. Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live long enough to make them all yourself. The tongue weighs practically nothing, But so few people can hold it. Thank you for stepping into my life.......... Send this to all the people who have made even the smallest footprint in your life.

Story:Today is the day

This teenager lived alone with his mother, and the two of them had a very special relationship. Even though the son was always on the bench, his mother was always in the stands cheering. She never missed a game. This young man was still the smallest of the class when he entered high school. But his mother 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 mother 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-on." Everyone was sure he could never make the cut, but he did. The coach

Etiquette Guidelines for Fun

PERSONAL HYGIENE Unlike clothes and shoes, a toothbrush should never be a hand-me-down item. While ears need to be cleaned regularly, this is a job that should be done in private using one's OWN truck keys. Proper use of toiletries can forestall bathing for several days. However, if you live alone, deodorant is a waste of good money. Dirt and grease under the fingernails is a social no-no, as they tend to alter the taste of finger foods. Plucking unwanted nose hair is time-consuming work. A cigarette lighter and a small tolerance for pain can accomplish the same goal and save hours. It's a good idea to keep a bucket of water handy when using this method. DINING OUT When decanting wine, make sure that you tilt the paper cup and pour slowly so as not to "bruise" the fruit of the vine. If drinking directly from the bottle, always hold it with your fingers covering the label. Remember to leave a generous tip for good service.

Genie Joke:Think before you ask a Wish

An Arab has spent many days crossing the desert without finding a source of water. It gets so bad that his camel dies of thirst. He's crawling through the sands, certain that he has breathed his last, when all of a sudden he sees a shiny object sticking out of the sand several yards ahead of him. He crawls to the object, pulls it out of the sand, and discovers that he has a Manischevitz wine bottle. It appears that there may be a drop or two left in the bottle, so he unscrews the top and out pops a genie. But this is no ordinary genie. This genie appears to be a Hassidic rabbi, complete with black alpaca coat, black hat, side curls, etc. "Well, kid," says the genie. "You know how it works. You have three wishes." "I'm not going to trust you," says the Arab. "I'm not going to trust a Jewish genie!" "What do you have to lose? It looks like you're a goner anyway!" The Arab thinks about this for a minute, and decides

Fun:Attention Spammers

I want to thank all my friends and other unknown people who have forwarded chain letters to me in 2003, 2004 & 2005 and 2006. Because of your kindness : I stopped drinking Coca-Cola after I found out that it's good only for removing toilet stains. I stopped going to the movies for fear of sitting on a needle infected with AIDS I smell like a wet dog since I stopped using deodorants because they cause cancer. I also stopped answering the phone for fear that they may ask me to dial a stupid number and then I get a phone bill from hell with calls to Uganda,Singapore and Tokyo. I also stopped drinking water outside for fear that I will get sick from the rat shit and urine. When I go to parties, I don't look at any girl, no matter how hot she is, for fear that she will take me to a hotel, drug me, then take my kidneys and leave me taking a nap in a bathtub full of ice. I also donated all my savings to the Amy Bruce account. A sick girl that was about to die in the hospital abou

The Wisdom of the Heart:Photo Essay

Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible. Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values. Sleep is the best meditation. Spend some time alone every day. We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck. We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection. Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions. If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them. The ultimate authority must always rest with the individual's own reason and critical analysis.

An application was for employment A program was a TV show A cursor used profanity And a keyboard was on a piano! Memory was something that you lost with age And a CD was a bank account And if you had a corrupted disk It would hurt when you found out! Compress was what you did to garbage Not something you did to a file And if you unzipped anything in public You'd be in jail for a while! Log on was adding wood to a fire A hard drive was a trip on the road A mouse pad was where a mouse lived And a backup happened to the commode!

Are you throwing your boomerang today?

Whether you realize it or not, you are throwing the boomerang today. As you know, a boomerang is an angular club you toss away from you that eventually returns to you. In the game of life, you throw the boomerang daily, in the form of actions and behaviors that you send out into the world, and which return to you at some later date -- often multiplied on the rebound. You've probably heard this principle stated in different ways, including, What goes around comes around. Or the Biblical phrases, Give and it shall be given unto you and As you sow, so shall you reap. But how does this principle apply to your day-to-day life Simply put, if you treat others with love and respect, you will find that others will generally love and respect you. If you serve others, you will likely be served. Of course, this law also applies
