It is common for restaurants to offer an ‘all you can drink’ policy for soft drinks, tea or coffee.
The question arises then about how much you can drink. Do you know the more you drink the less you can eat? That’s why they make such an offer. It is cheaper then feeding you!
We often hear the phrase that God is our co-pilot.
Seriously, I would rather God was driving and I was only a passenger.
I’m riding in God’s side car and close my eyes in fright,
When I did not know Him and traveled on alone,
I’m riding in God’s side car and the devil knows I’m there.
Prayer- Lord, give us the courage to let you drive. Amen.
This is a copy of a law passed in 1770 by British parliament. Be prepared to be amused!
All women of whatever age, rank or profession or degree, whether virgins, maids or widows that shall impose upon, seduce or betray into matrimony any of his Majesty’s subjects, by scents, paints, cosmetics, washes, artificial teeth, false hair, iron stave hops, high-heeled shoes, bolstered hips or padded bosoms shall incur the penalty of the law enforced against witch craft and like misdemeanors and upon conviction the marriage shall stand null and void.
Whew! Even Peter wasn’t that stern.
I actually teach a seminar on humor because I think there isn’t much of it going on in today’s world. I am not alone. See the esteemed folks and their quotes below.
“Humour is the great thing, the saving thing, after all. The minute it crops up, all of our hardnesses yield, all our irritations and resentments flit away, and a sunny spirit takes their place.” -Mark Twain
“Trouble knocked at the door but hearing laughter hurried away. ” -Benjamin Franklin
“You can’t stay mad at somebody who makes you laugh.” – Jay Leno
“A day without laughter is a day wasted. ” -Charlie Chaplin
“Laughter is a mini vacation. ” -Milton Berle
“Laughter is the closest distance between two people. ” -Victor Borge
“From there to here and here to there funny things are everywhere.” – Dr. Seuss
Never let it be said that God doesn’t have anything to say on the topic!
How do you know its time to replace your car, your blender or your underwear? Some simple rules apply.
This week begins the season of the Great Return, you know when everything you spent hours looking for and many dollars buying gets returned to the unknown abyss.
Do you know what happens there? Untold bunches of stuff are taken back to their original store, where they are then sent to some kind of discount place store. All will be sold for a tiny percentage of original value.
Is anything we own of any real worth? Clothes get baggy and worn, dishes break. All that really lasts is our relationships.
Sadly they don’t go on forever either. People move or die and everything is over…unless we have the hope of seeing them again.
The only thing we can really count on is our one on one relationship with the Lord. Thankfully it is non-returnable.
No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known. (John 1:18, NIV)
Prayer- Lord, draw our hearts to what really lasts…the Christ. Amen.
I just spoke at a campground that was invested by mosquitoes. The organizer wanted us outside. I braced myself for lots of squishing as I delivered my message. However, we all prayed the place bug-free and the leader helped God out by thoughtfully lighting several bug deterrent candles and placing them on each table. What a difference it made to both us and to the bugs. Not one of them lost their lives during my message.
Today and every Monday for a while you can hear chapters of my book The Pregnant Pause of Grief. It’s been almost 6 years since my Dear Ronald went to be with Jesus. I started to read the book again myself, just to see how far I have come since that first horrible grief. And then Hopestreamradio.com added it to their Monday roster. Tune in, won’t you? I pray it helps you as it helped me. Brenda J Wood
