Midweek Mirth

One of the misconceptions about being a Christian is we don’t know how to have fun or have a sense of humor. Trust me, if the Big Guy can have a sense of humor when it comes to dealing with us mere mortals, so can we.

The difference for Christians is we don’t have to debase ourselves or others to generate a smile. Laughter at life or ourselves is a gift from God.

So, let’s smile a little!

Seems Fair

A motorist, driving by a Texas ranch, hit and killed a calf that was crossing the road. The driver went to the owner of the calf and explained what had happened. He then asked what the animal was worth.

“Oh, about $200 today,” said the rancher. “But in six years it would have been worth $900. So $900 is what I’m out.”

The motorist sat down and wrote out a check and handed it to the farmer. “Here,” he said, “is the check for $900. It’s postdated six years from now.”

And now for a bonus …

Lively Conversation

An executive was interviewing a young woman for a position in his company. He wanted to find out something about her personality so he asked, “If you could have a conversation with someone, living or dead, who would it be?”

The girl responded confidently, “The living one!”

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Everything is always okay in the end; if it’s not, then it’s not the end.

  1. You brought a needed smile!

    And I nee your prayers. More than you may know.

    I’ve got a lump upon my chest
    that hurts with every breath.
    I’m God’s hands, it’s for the best
    but it’s got me scared to death.
    I’ve always been a hard-assed thug
    for whom fear’s been a stranger
    but now I really need a hug
    to help me hide from danger.
    I’ve always been the one who’s paid
    my way through pain, and more,
    but today I’m scared, and needing aid
    to swim to the fatal shore.
    So I ask your arms, though far away
    to help me stay afloat this day.


I'd love to hear your thoughts on this subject!
