SHORT BUT SWEET:For her special day Janet received an expensive tube of anti wrinkle cream from her two teenage daughters. When she shared about her gift at a lunch with friends, they were all impressed that her girls were resourceful enough to get a prescription medication to help diminish wrinkles. Realizing this was such a unique gift, the ladies were curious as to what they gave her for last Mother’s Day. Without a moment’s hesitation Janet replied, “The wrinkles!”

“As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good to my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is “Love Of Oneself.”” Charlie Chaplin

“Don’t dig up in doubt what you planted in faith.”   Elisabeth Elliot

“If you want children to keep their feet on the ground, put some responsibility on their shoulders.” Abigail Van Buren

ONE SENTENCE SERMON: This summer, put your phone away for a few days, make some memories that no-one knows about, make some memories that are just yours.

A TODDLER’S RULES OF OWNERSHIP: 1. If I like it, it’s mine. 2. If it’s in my hand, it’s mine. 3. If I can take it from you, it’s mine. 4. If I had it a little while ago, it’s mine. 5. If it’s mine, it must never appear to be yours in any way. 6. If I’m doing or building something, all the pieces are mine. 7. If it looks just like mine, it’s mine. 8. If I saw it first, it’s mine. 9. If you are playing with something and you put it down, it automatically becomes mine. 10. If it’s broken, it’s yours.
