Have you seen the pretty colored leaves already. There are some beautiful colors and it’s so nice to be able to sit by your window and look out across the street and see their pretty colors. This is one thing none of us has anything to do with; it’s all in the hands of mother nature. Fall is my favorite time of the year. I remember years ago walking out to get the cows and coming down the cow-lane the cob-webs would some how be there and get you right in the face. I guess this year its been mostly bees around and daughter Vickie can tell you about that. Hope you can all go walking or riding and see the pretty leaves.

A young pastor announced nervously, “ I will take for my text the words, “and they fed five with 5,000 loaves of bread and 2,000 fishes.” At this misquotation, an old parishioner said, “That’s no miracle, I could do that myself.”

The next Sunday, the preacher announced the same text. This time he got it right, “and they fed 5,000 people on 5 loaves of bread and 2 fishes.” He waited a moment, then learned over the pulpit and asked the old parishioner, “and could you do that, too Mr Smith?” “Of course I could,” Mr. Smith replied. “And how would you do it?” the preacher asked. Mr Smith answered, “with the leftovers from last Sunday.”

The wheel was man’s greatest invention - until he got behind it.

Variety may be the spice of life, but monotony buys the groceries.

Ole was seeing his doctor for a physical. The doctor tried to give Ole a tactful message about his health.
Doctor: “I’m afraid I can’t do much in the way of treatment right now due to over-indulgence in alcohol, in other words, drinking.”
Ole: “Vell, ven you sober up, let me know and I’ll come back and see you.”

Do all you can and trust God to do what you cannot.

When you feel terrific, notify your face.

Extra Prayer
When the world falls
down around you,
And a prayer will see you through,
Say an extra prayer for someone
Who may need it more than you

To my Sunday School Teachers
Today, as I sat
In my home town church
Where I sat so long ago,
My heart was filled with memories
Of people, I used to know -
Neighbors, friends, my grandparents,
Preachers who filled me with awe,
A chair under stained-glass windows,
All those in my mind I saw,
But, of all the personal memories
That swell in the hallowed place
The clearest, dearest vision to me
Is my Sunday School Teacher’s face.
. . . . .
P.S. I still want to “thank” everyone for my birthday party and all - I received 152 cards. I think I broke the record.
