Something To Ponder
Two brothers once decided to dig a deep hole behind their house. As they were working, a couple of other boys stopped by to watch. "What are you doing?" asked one of the visitors. "We're going to dig a hole all the way through the earth!" one of the brothers volunteered excitedly.
The other boys began to laugh, telling the brothers that digging a hole all the way through the earth was impossible. After a long silence, one of the diggers picked up a jar full of spiders, worms, insects and interesting stones. He removed the lid and showed the wonderful contents to the scoffing visitors. Then he said confidently, "Even if we don't dig all the way through the earth, look what we found along the way!"
Their goal was far too ambitious, but it did cause them to dig. That is what a goal is for, to cause us to move in the direction we have chosen. In other words, to set us to digging!
But not every goal will be fully achieved. Not every job will end successfully. Not every relationship will endure. Not every hope will come to pass. Not every love will last. Not every endeavor will be completed. Not every dream will be realized. But when you fall short of your aim, perhaps you can say, "Yes, but look at what I found along the way! Look at the wonderful things which have come into my life because I tried to do something!" It is in the digging that life is lived, and it is the joy in the journey that truly matters!
Have your ever felt like life has just Gone-ta-pott?
Well here's a few funnies in our daily lives that make us think that.
(Funny but ooooo sooooo true!)

Remove from da stove, add salt, butter and nuts, stir only enough ta mix good. Maw says ta remember that if ya stir too much, it will sugr and youins dont wants dat. It is desirabe ( city talk) ta have nuts warm before addin so the candy will not harden before it can be put in pans. Set in a pan of hot water and with a large spoon dip out the candy bout..... 1/4" thick. When throughly cold, invet the tins and tap with a knife handle ta loosen the brittle.

St. Patrick's Day
St. Patrick's Day, celebrated every year on March 17, is a holiday honoring Saint Patrick, the missionary credited with converting the Irish to Christianity in the A.D. 400s. Saint Patrick's real name was Maewyn Succat. For his first 16 years, Maewyn lived a normal life as the son of a wealthy landowner and magistrate in Britain.
At 16, Maewyn was captured and sold into slavery by a group of pirates who raided his village. After six years of herding sheep, Maewyn escaped, went to France and became a priest, adopting the name Patrick.
During his training, Patrick discovered that his calling was to convert Irish pagans to Christianity. He returned to Ireland, established monasteries across the country, set up schools and churches, and converted many with his winning personality. Patrick carried on a very successful mission for thirty years. When he died on March 17, that day was commemorated as St. Patrick's Day.
Originally a Catholic holy day, St. Patrick's Day has evolved into more of a secular holiday. In America, in fact, St. Patrick's Day is basically a time when everyone becomes Irish, wears green and goes out to party.
Did you know...
- That green is associated with St. Patrick's Day because it's the color of spring?
- That the shamrock is a traditional symbol because Saint Patrick used the three-leafed shamrock to represent how the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit could exist as separate elements in the same entity?
- That the first St. Patrick's Day in America was celebrated in Boston in 1737?
- That the following things on St. Patrick's Day will bring you good luck? Finding a four-leaf clover, wearing green, kissing the Blarney Stone, and sending a Care2 Lucky Frog card (well, we think so anyway!).
