A man was telling his neighbor, “I just bought a new hearing aid. It cost me four thousand dollars, but it’s state of the art. It’s perfect.!”
“Really,” answered the neighbor. “What kind is it?'”
If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.
Thought for the day
Establish a planned schedule. Proverbs 13:16 says, “A wise man plans ahead. A fool doesn’t” (LB). If you fail to plan, you’re planning to fail. You need to designate some specific time slots each week for the things you need to do. Whatever it is, put it on your calendar. And if it’s a big task, break it down into small pieces. Break it into bite-size pieces.

Start today. Not next month, next week, or tomorrow. “Never boast about tomorrow. You don’t know what will happen between now and then” (Proverbs 27:1 GNT). None of us is guaranteed a tomorrow.
A football coach was asked how he picked a team from a bunch of raw recruits.
“I hate to give away my secrets,” he replied, “but I’ll tell you. I take them out into the woods. Then, at a given signal, I start them running.
Those that run around the trees are chosen as guards. Those that run into the trees are chosen as tackles.”
If you can still do at 60 what you did at 20, it means you weren’t doing much at 20.”
Thought for the day
Stop making excuses. “The lazy man is full of excuses” (Proverbs 22:13 LB). What have you been saying you’re going to do “one of these days”? What do you make excuses about? The number one excuse I hear is, “When things settle down, then I’m going to …” Things will never settle down. You must make a choice to prioritize what is important.
Woman Misses Husband’s Funeral There is a huge rivalry in college basketball between the University of Louisville and the University of Kentucky. The story is told that at one of the games between the two schools, an elderly woman was sitting alone with an empty seat next to her. Someone approached her and said, “Ma’am, I have rarely seen an empty seat in Rupp Arena, let alone at a game between these two teams. Whose seat is this?” The woman responded that she and her late husband had been season-ticket holders for 28 years, and the seat had belonged to him. ”Well, couldn’t you find a friend or relative to come to the game with you?” the observer asked. ”Are you kidding?” she replied. “They’re all at my husband’s funeral.”

“Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6
We humans are great starters but often bad finishers. We leave unfinished symphonies, unfinished buildings, unfinished books, unfinished projects. We may not always finish what we start, but God always finishes what he starts.
I was having dinner at a nice restaurant the other night. The couple at the next table were smooching from the moment they sat down. Oh how romantic, young love!
But I couldn’t figure out what was going on at their table after the food came. Every time the young man would take a bite, he would jump up and give the girl such a big hug that she would squeal loudly! This bizarre behavior continued about 10 times – he took a bite, gave her a big hug, she squealed….very strange. Everyone was looking!!
When my waiter came by I mentioned the ‘entertainment’ and he said “Oh, we have that all the time in here. You see, that man ordered the Seize Her Salad.”
