St. Joseph and Children........January 20


Most effective sleeping pill…..Peace of mind The most crippling failure disease…..Excuses
The most powerful force in life…..Love
The most dangerous pariah…..A gossiper
The world's most incredible computer…..The brain
The worst thing to be without…..Hope
The deadliest weapon…..The tongue
The two most power-filled words….."I Can"

Here is the meaning of the upper-case French words on this card:
"St. Joseph, patron saint of Christian children"

snflwr - If you create a password you can check the box that sends you an email when there is another message on this page. Makes it easy to see what others said.

Mary Lou - Y W...........I think we all care for each other...I appreciate that myself.

Gardenia - I smile every time you call them a "doily" card...reminds me of my grandma. :-)

John K. - Yes, I guess these "powerful" words do keep us on our toes. I'm amazed at just how many of these 1800 lace cards still exist....what a blessing they have been saved by so many...maybe because they were easy to store away in books etc. Glad you appreciate them.

We are fine here, weather is acceptable. I think you all had a run of rain right? Maybe that will bring the Spring flowers early this year.
