Time Stands Still For No One
Enjoy The Time That God Has Given You



The Right Place At The Right Time

GOD Has A Way Of Allowing Us To Be At The Right Place
At The Right Time

I Was Walking Down A Dimly Lit Street Late One Evening
I Heard Muffled Screams Coming From Behind A Clump Of Bushes

Alarmed
I Slowed Down To Listen
I Panicked

I Realized That What I Was Hearing Were The Unmistakable Sounds Of A Struggle
The Heavy Grunting
Frantic Scuffling
And The Tearing Of Fabric
Only Yards From Where I Stood
A Woman Was Being Attacked

Should I Get Involved?

I Was Frightened For My Own Safety
I Cursed Myself For Having Suddenly Decided To Take A New Route Home That Night

What If I Became Another Statistic?
Shouldn't I Just Run To The Nearest Phone And Call The Police?

It Seemed Like An Eternity
The Deliberations In My Head Had Only Taken Seconds
Already The Cries Were Growing Weaker
I Knew I Had To Act Fast
How Could I Walk Away From This?

No!
I Finally Resolved
I Could Not Turn My Back On The Fate Of This Unknown Woman
Even If It Meant Risking My Own Life

I Am Not A Brave Man
Nor Am I Athletic

I Don't Know Where I Found The Moral Courage And The Physical Strength
Once I Had Finally Resolved To Help The Woman
I Became Strangely Transformed

I Ran Behind The Bushes And Pulled The Assailant Off Of The Woman
Grappling
We Fell To The Ground Where We Wrestled For A Few Minutes
Suddenly The Attacker Jumped Up Ran Off And Escaped

Panting Hard
I Scrambled Upright And Approached The Girl
She Was Crouched Behind A Tree Sobbing

In The Darkness
I Could Barely See Her Outline
I Could Certainly Sense Her Trembling Shock
Not Wanting To Frighten Her Further
I Spoke To Her From A Distance

"It's Okay" I Said Soothingly
"The Man Has Ran Away
You Are Safe Now"

There Was A Long Pause
And Then I Heard These Words Uttered In Amazement

"Daddy
Is That You?"
From Behind The Tree Stepped My Youngest Daughter

Thoughts To Ponder

Living On Earth Is Expensive
But It Does Include A Free Trip Around The Sun

Birthdays Are Good For You
The More You Have
The Longer You Live

How Long A Minute Is
Depends On What Side Of The Bathroom Door You're On

I Have Noticed That The People Who Are Late
Are Often So Much Jollier Than The People Who Have To Wait For Them

If Ignorance Is Bliss
Why Aren't More People Happy?

Most Of Us Go To Our Grave With Our Music Still Inside Of Us

If Wal-Mart Is Lowering Prices Every Day
How Come Nothing In The Store Is Free Yet?

You May Be Only One Person In The World
But You May Also Be The World To One Person

Some Mistakes Are Too Much Fun To Only Make Once

Don't Cry Because Its Over
Smile Because It Happened

We Could Learn A Lot From Crayons
Some Are Sharp
Some Are Pretty
Some Are Dull
Some Have Weird Names
And All Are Different Colors
But They All Have To Learn To Live In The Same Box

Everything Should Be Made As Simple As Possible But Not Simpler

Happiness Comes Through Doors You Didn't Even Know You Had Left Open
