A preacher from a local church heard the phone ring and picked it up. "St. Vincents Church, may I help you? he said. "yes, is Pastor Bob there?"  " Speaking" said Pastor Bob. "Yes, this is Agent Nickles from the IRS. Do you have a Bill Johnson in your congregation?" he asked. " Yes, may I ask Why?" 
"Did he donate $10,000 to your church?" After a brief silence the Pastor said, No but he will.

Today's Quote

A comfortable old age is the reward of a well-spent youth. Instead of its bringing sad and melancholy prospects of decay, it would give us hopes of eternal youth in a better world.

An artist carries on throughout his life a mysterious, uninterrupted conversation with his public.

If you wait for the perfect moment when all is safe and assured, it may never arrive. Mountains will not be climbed, races won, or lasting happiness achieved.

The French are true romantics. They feel the only difference between a man of forty and one of seventy is thirty years of experience.

Those whose approval you seek most give you the least.

Those whose approval you seek most give you the least.
Maurice Chevalier

You don't stop laughing because you grow older. You grow older because you stop laughing.
