Quotes I Like*

Everyone has a photographic memory. Some just don't have film. Personally, I never even take off the lens cap!

*Your mileage may vary. Some quotes are puns, or require historical or technical literacy to appreciate. If you miss the humor, please re-read the Internet and then try again.

Floating Dove

by George F. Rice

Materials Required:

  • Scissors
  • Printer
  • Pennies (2)
  • Glue

Assembly:

Follow these instructions to make a "floating dove"!



  1. Download this Portable Document Format (PDF) file to your "My Documents" folder: dove.pdf. Depending on which browser you use, you may need to shift-click on the link, or right-click and select "Save Target...".
  2. Load dove.pdf into Adobe's PDF Reader software. If you don't have Adobe's PDF Reader, you can download and install it for free from here.
  3. Print the template on heavy paper (not regular paper). If you don't have heavy paper, try one of these options:
    • Print and cut out two of the doves on regular paper, then paste them together.
    • Cut out one dove, then use it as a template to cut a similar dove from poster board.
  4. Now you have a dove that won't fly. To make it "fly", you need to make it heavier. (Did you know that to be free, we need to obey God's rules to love Him with all our heart, and to love each other?) Tape or glue one penny under each wing (underneath where you see the penny-size circles on the template). Important: The pennies must be aligned very closely to the circles, or your dove may tip to one side and "crash".

It's ready! Place the dove's beak on the tip of your pointer finger, with it's tail facing away from you as shown in the photograph. Carefully release the dove. Voila! (If your dove falls tail-first, move the pennies closer toward you. If it tips to the side, move the penny on the side that rose toward you. With a little experimenting, you can make your dove fly!)

Now you tell me - is God just about "Thou shalt not's", or does His love support you? And who did God's love support through you today?
