I mentioned in last Friday's post that my son graduated this past weekend. His actual degree is an "Associate Degree in Applied Science, Computer Programming," and he graduated Magna Cum Laude. ("With High Honor" for those of us who may not be adept at Latin.)

I was at a circus festival and noticed a guy in bad clown makeup creating intricate balloon animals.
He was in the middle of twisting something together when a little girl asked, "What are you making?"
He sighed, and said, "Minimum wage."

WISDOM for YOUR WEEK: "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." (Matthew 7:13-14)
