According to searches on the web, definition of Pied Piper - "In modern times 'Pied Piper' has come to mean any charismatic person who attracts an enthusiastic following." Don't know about charismatic, but it's wonderful to see such a following for this site.

Says So much

Once all villagers decided to pray for rain.
On the day of prayer all the people gathered,
but only one boy came with an umbrella.

That’s FAITH


When you throw babies in the air,
they laugh because they know you will catch them.

That’s TRUST

.
.

Every night we go to bed
without any assurance of being alive the next morning,
but still we set the alarms to wake up.

That’s HOPE


We plan big things for tomorrow
in spite of zero knowledge of the future.

That’s CONFIDENCE

.

We see the world suffering,
but still we get married and have children.

That’s LOVE

.

On an old man’s shirt was written a sentence
‘I am not 80 years old;
I am sweet 16 with 64 years of experience.’

That’s ATTITUDE.


Good friends are the rare jewels of life

Difficult to find and impossible replace

Visit from the Devil

A few minutes before the church services started, the congregation was sitting in their pews and talking.  Suddenly, Satan appeared at the front of the church.

Everyone started screaming and running for the back entrance, trampling each other in a frantic effort to get away from evil incarnate. Soon the church was empty except for one man who sat calmly in his pew without moving, seemingly oblivious to the fact that God’s ultimate enemy was in his presence.

So Satan walked up to the man and said ‘Do you know who I am?’

The man replied ‘Yep, sure do.’

‘Aren’t you afraid of me?’ Satan asked.

‘Nope, sure ain’t’ said the man.

‘Don’t you realize I can kill you with one word?’ asked Satan.

‘Don’t doubt it for a minute ‘ returned the man, in an even tone.

‘Did you know that I can cause you profound, horrifying agony for all eternity?’ persisted Satan.

‘Yep’ was the calm reply.

‘And you’re still not afraid?’ asked Satan.

‘Nope’ said the man.

More than a little perturbed, Satan asked ‘ Why aren’t you afraid of me?’

The man calmly replied ‘Been married to your sister for many years.’

The Explanation

Brains of older people are slow because they know so much…

People do not decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to recall facts, because they have more information in their brains, scientists believe. Much like a computer struggles as the hard drive gets full up, so to do humans take longer to access information, it has been suggested.

Researchers say this slowing down is not the same as cognitive decline.

The human brain works slower in old age, said a geriatric specialist, but only because we have stored more information over time. The brains of older people do not get weak. On the contrary, they simply know more.

Also, older people often go to another room to get something and when they get there, they stand there wondering what they came for. It is NOT a memory problem, it is nature’s way of making older people do more exercise.

SO THERE!!
