Phil Brand 4-H News Carol Crocker TAKE THAT COMPLIMENT A compliment is a gift, presented to you in good faith. Do you take it, or do you spoil the gift by turning the compliment away? A simple "Thank you very much," or "That's very kind of you," makes the compliment giver feel amply rewarded. Don't be guilty of giving the following wrong answers: That's a very pretty dress you're wearing.' "This old thing? Why, I bought it four years ago!" You certainly have handsome children. "I only wish they behaved as well! They drive me crazy." Your home looks lovely. ''You think so? You should see the dust in the corners! Ihave'n't cleaned for a week!" What nice paintings! "Do you think so? I was thinking of changing them for new ones." This meat delicious! "Really? I only wish I could afford steak like the Joneses." . Don't be afraid to show your pleasure when you receive a compliment. Gracious living is an art and must be practiced. So the next time someone hands you a compliment - take it.

A button will be pushed, and it will rain. Planes will wing through the heavens at 5,000 miles an hour. Freight will be shot across the continent by missile. Hurricanes will be halted in their course and sent back to sea. Sound fantastic? Maybe. But time has a w.ay of making the fantastic and incredible become commonplace. Few of us marvel over television any more. We take it for granted, along with the other wonders of today's modern world. The future is frightening for many of us to think about The unknown has always held a basic fear in the minds of some. Coping with the problems and challenges of the present is enough for most of us. But whatever the future holds, each of us can march more confidently into it by trusting God. Attend His church regularly.
