It could be worse

Here’s a little Proverbs 17:22 for you:

A woman opened her business at a new location and her best friend sent her some flowers to celebrate. The friend dropped by a few days later to visit and was bothered to see that the flowers had a sign that read, “Rest in Peace.” The friend decided to call the florist to complain. The florist said, ‘It could be worse. Somewhere in this city is an arrangement in a cemetery that reads, “Congratulations on your new location!’

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

. . . 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.

Something to Laugh At

If you need something to laugh at today I have something that I think will do the job. Here’s a link to a website that has a list of funny notes (some really funny) that kids wrote to various people. My personal favorite is the one about the dollar bills. I don’t know too much about the site but it seems safe enough. Enjoy!

What Would Happen If They Did A Present Dropping Air Raid

I don’t mean to make lite of the situation in North Korea, but I just read a story on the Huff-n-Puff site that said North Korea is upset at South Korea because of a Christmas tree like tower that’s been shinning brightly at South Korea’s border. The North isn’t taking the political/religious statement lightly. It claims the South is playing psychological warfare and that there will be consequences for it!

My thought was imagine what would happen if the South did a present-dropping air raid. Even more, imagine what the ACLU is going to say once the North gets them involved. They better hide the plug!

Bible Riddle…See if You Can Figure it Out

This one isn’t too hard, but it should let you read about someone who doesn’t get read about very much.

Here you go:

With 24 digits, his phone number would’ve been hard to remember.

If you can’t think of who it is, especially if you don’t have his number in your cell, you can find a clue to the answer in 2 Samuel 21: 15-22.

Remember, the riddles are a play on words. Be careful about clicking on the comments just in case the answer’s down there.

Bible Riddle…See if You Can Figure it Out

Are you ready for another Bible riddle?

Here you go: Jesus talked to a lot of different people, but did you know he once talked to a person who was only 12 inches tall? What was the person’s name?

See if you can figure out the riddle without checking the scripture reference, but if you must have a hint then try checking out John 3:1-12. You’ll find the answer somewhere in there. Have fun! (Spolier Alert – If you don’t want to see the answer don’t click on the comments.)

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