Peanut the cat looking sleepy - “Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”

During a flight between New York and Chi­cago, the captain made this announcement over the plane's intercom: "Our number four engine has just been shut off because of mechanical trouble. There is nothing to worry about, however, and we can still fin­ish the flight with just three engines. Besides, you will be reassured to know that we have four bishops on board."

An 86-year-old woman called the flight at­tendant and said, "Would you please tell the captain that I would rather have four engines and three bish­ops!" Experience taught her to place her trust in the aircraft rather than passengers -- even if they're bishops!

Experience, likewise, has taught us to be careful of what and whom we trust. We learn to be careful trusting risky investments, offers to make easy money, people we don't know, and anything that seems "too good to be true." We are sometimes even afraid to trust ourselves!

Helen Keller learned a great deal about trust in her life as one who was both sightless and deaf. She learned to trust people, upon whom she was often dependent. She learned to trust herself and lived a highly productive life in spite of her handi­capping conditions. As a noted writer and thinker, she taught us that trust is vital to any happy life.

That great woman believed there are four great things to learn in life. They are:

To think clearly without hurry or confusion;
To love everyone sincerely;
To act in everything with the highest motives;
To trust God unhesitatingly.

Trust. It is a small word which can make a big difference.
