One of the worlds greatest hypochondriacs, bumped into his Dr. one day at the supermarket. “Doc!” he exclaimed, “I’ve been meaning to tell you, remember those voices I kept on hearing in my head? I haven’t heard them in over a week!” “Wow! What wonderful news! I’m so happy for you!” his Dr. exclaimed. “Wonderful?” Are you kidding? "There’s nothing wonderful about it. I’m now afraid there's something wrong with my hearing." ~ copied/adapted
You have heard that it used to be said, ‘You shall love your neighbour’, and ‘hate your enemy’, but I tell you, Love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Heavenly Father. For he makes the sun rise upon evil men as well as good, and he sends his rain upon honest and dishonest men alike." (Matthew 5:43-45) I throw these truths out there because it helped me. And, that's how we can be of help by reminding each other of God's ability to handle each and every issue we face. Thanks. I needed that. Amen.
I Yam What I Yam and Dats What I Yam!" If you can't conjure up Popeye the Sailor Man, I'm not sure I can help you. However, I am well aware of the emphasis on using words and phrases that try and connect to Millennials. There's a commercial running on the radio right now from Tom Bodett of "we'll leave the light on for you" fame. In the new spot, he attempts to use a lot of the hashtag references and other slang recognizable by the younger generations. It doesn't make much sense to me but it does make me laugh. See? It does make me laugh. Maybe if I understood it, it wouldn't be funny anymore. Perhaps that's where the old saying came from, "fat, dumb, and happy." I'll let you chew the cud on that for a while with hopes that you and yours will have a great Saturday and Lord's Day Sunday. See you next time, Lord willing and the Creeks don't rise, (Creek Indian Nation). Amen. ....More later.
