LETTER FROM A FARM KID

(The following is a letter a farm kid wrote home soon after joining the Marines. It has been around for a while, but I thought I would share it with my readers this week. Perhaps it will bring a smile to your face as we go through the winter doldrums. Be sure to read all the way to the surprise ending and enjoy.)

Dear Ma and Pa: Continue reading

Out of the mouth of babes

Last night, as we were taxiing home some kids from VBS, I asked about the topics that were studied since each kid had gone to a different class.

The oldest said that they had studied how God cleanses us through the blood of Jesus, which was illustrated with a dirty cup and some cleanser.

The middle-aged girl of the three, and the sister to the oldest girl who came along for the ride, said that they had studied how God was the Creator of the Earth.

The youngest girl, who happened to be my three-year-old daughter, didn’t say anything after the other two had finished talking, so my wife decided to prod her a little and asked what she had learned, to which, in the simplest but obvious implication that her mother must had not listened very well in class, she replied, “You were there.”

A picture of irony

I’m sure Moses would never have said such a thing:

A merry heart does good, like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones.” (Proverbs 17:22)

Out of the mouth of babes…

The following is a real conversation that took place between me and my two-year-old last night…

Me: Do you want to take a bath?

My daughter: Un-uh.

Me: Do you want to take a shower?

My daughter: Un-uh.

Me: Do you want to stick your head in the toilet?

My daughter: Un-huh

A merry heart does good, like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones.” (Proverbs 17:22)

A Little Humor to Start the Day

Here’s an email I received from a good friend. I can’t say it made me laugh out loud or anything, but it did put a smile on my face and I thought it was worth passing along. Just click on the link and you’ll see what I mean.

I’ve received many remarkable nature photographs over the years but this photo of a nesting Falcon is perhaps the most remarkable nature shot that I’ve ever seen. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Nature is truly breath-taking!

Order in the…In-box?

Does the command “Let all things be done decently and in order” (1 Corinthians 14:40) apply to our email in-boxes?

I won’t even ask about the preacher’s desk!

A merry heart does good, like medicine,…” (Proverbs 17:22)

No joke

So she says, “___.”

Then he says, “___.”

Get it?

Making things up as you go along is no joke. Not in politics, not in marriage, not in faith.
