*** Happy Birthday to our daughter-in-law Sherrie. We thank God for her and her family. Our Chris, and their daughters Tiffany, Brittany, Stefani, and their granddaughter and our great grand Madelyn Joy are also true blessings to us all. We pray that God will continue to bless Sherrie as she continues to serve Him and others. Amen. ***
It's Monday and time to get on with another work week here on this July 27, 2015. I saw a fellow who posted this one and it reminded me of some old timers that I grew up around. This fellow happened to have been visiting Ireland. He asked one of the locals who was sitting on a bench smoking a pipe what was the fastest way to get to the next little town. The fellow looked up at him and simply asked, "Are you walking or driving a car?" The visitor responded, "Of course, I'm in a car!" To which the old fellow nodded and said that would be the fastest choice. We are all people. And, people are funny. We all have our little idiosyncrasies. I saw a fellow the other day that was posting some very positive slogans. One in particular announced how much he loved Jesus. The very next one was a photo of a large amount of currency rolled into many little rolls. The caption said that if one were to forward that to someone else they would be receiving the money in the photo within a few days. I'm not criticizing that fellow at all. Just observing. I do know that I can spot the other person's quirks a little quicker than I do my own. I know I probably riled some folks last week in my comments about Donald Trump. For those who think he might make a good president I wanted to let you know that he did say in an interview that he would likely change his tone when he becomes president. He said he did have a sophisticated side that he could demonstrate. I read that and thought it might make someone feel a little better about how he might conduct himself later. (One would only hope!) Just passing it on, for what it's worth. That's what I do.
