One of the misconceptions about being a Christian is non-Christians think 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!
A woman called to make airline reservations and was put on hold. After several minutes of taped music, a recorded voice came on: “If you have been waiting longer than 10 minutes, you may press eight. If your call is not answered within five more minutes, you may press seven. This will not speed up your call, but it will give you something to do while you wait.”
And now, with Thanksgiving right around the corner, here’s the bonus …
Reasons to be Thankful You Burnt the Bird
Salmonella won’t be a concern.
Uninvited guests will think twice next year.
Your cheese broccoli lima bean casserole will gain newfound appreciation.
Pets won’t bother to pester you for scraps.
No one will overeat.
The smoke alarm was due for a test.
Carving the bird will provide a good cardiovascular workout.
You’ll get to the desserts even quicker.
After dinner, the guys can take the bird to the yard and play football.
You won’t have to face three weeks of turkey sandwiches.
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness. Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can’t change.
When I used to bear a grudge,
it was a psycho grizzly,
a hate-fest that I would indulge,
not knowing it would kill me.
I’d gladly give away my joy
so I coud plot my fury,
vengeance-fantasy to employ;
I was both judge and jury.
And then I found it came to pass
that I was changed, not they.
I had made myself an ass
and they went on their merry way.
I’m just glad that I awoke
before I gave myself a stroke.
Don’t need a stroke! Good night.
