Yogi Berra, " Philosopher."

 

Yogi Berra was a very good New York Yankee baseball player that fit well into Casey Stengel's style of managing.

He was a good philosopher although reporters liked to make fun of his bits of wisdom after he was quoted as saying; "I didn't really say those things I said."

ON BEING A GODLY CITIZEN

 

Even though most who read this Devotional are in the United States, the country you live in doesn't matter. One of our responsibilities as a child of God is to be a godly citizen of the country we live in. This is accomplished primarily by obeying the laws and honoring those God has placed in leadership. Here are many scripture references that support this: Ecclesiastes 8:2, Matthew 17:27, Matthew 22:21, Romans 13:1, 1Peter 2:13, 1Peter 2:17, Ezra 7:26, Exodus...

Oooooooohhh I just have to tell you where I've been; Lord knows I have enough people telling me where to go. OK, I've been to the Ponderosa for Sunday dinner and I can't say that I was overly impressed with their service, or their food, but I can say our waiter was such a dear. He made me/us feel right at home. He fetched and carried for us with such a pleasant cute little smile and he was there if we needed anything at all. He got us extra napkins when we had to clean up Wayne and kept our...
