Fig Leaf Found…
A little boy opened the large old family Bible, and he looked with fascination at the ancient pages as he turned them one by one.
He was still in Genesis when something fell out of the bible. He picked it up and looked at it closely. It was a very large old tree leaf that had been pressed between the pages of the Bible long ago. “Momma, look what I found!” the boy called out.
“What do you have there?” his mother asked.
With astonishment in his voice, the young boy answered, “I think its Adam’s underwear!”

Wit or Wisdom?
“Maturity is the ability to do a job whether or not you are supervised, to carry money
without spending it, and to bear an injustice without wanting to get even.”
“I’m looking forward to looking back on all this.”
“It’s important that people should know what you stand for.
It’s equally important that they know what you won’t stand for.”
~Mary H. Waldrip
