A man goes to his church to confess.

Man: "Father, I have sinned."

Priest: "And how have you sinned?"

Man: "I have stolen someone's bicycle, and am now here to give it to you."

Priest: "No, no - don't give it to me; return it to the person you have stolen it from and you shall be forgiven."

Man: "I did that, but he said he didn't want it."

Priest: "In that case, you may keep the bicycle for yourself."

The man leaves.

After the day is over, the priest goes from the church to find his bicycle is missing.

I'm sorry that I'm not here most of the time, but I have each of you on my mind. I'm busy away from home tending to other people's lives. Enjoy this short video while I'm gone.

I will return when things get back to normal.
I love you.

Have you ever heard the words to the theme song of "The Andy Griffith Show"? Turn up your volume and watch the pictures taken from the series. Many times I've wished that I could have grown up in a town like Mayberry.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!


Have a fantastic Saturday!

Live your life as if there's no tomorrow!
But no breaking of the ten commandments!



1. The villagers decided to pray for rain. Then, on the day of prayer everyone gathered, but only one boy came with an umbrella.
That's FAITH.

2. When you toss a baby in the air, she laughs because
she knows you will catch her.
That's TRUST.

3. Every night we go to bed, without any assurance
of being alive the next morning but still we set our alarm
to wake up.
That's HOPE.

4. We plan big things for tomorrow despite zero knowledge of the future.
That's CONFIDENCE.

5. We see the world suffering, but still we get married and have children.
That's LOVE.

6. On an old man's shirt was written: "I am not 80 years old....I'm sweet 16 with 64 years of experience."
That's ATTITUDE.


Have a happy day, live your life like these six!

A young college student goes to meet with her young professor about her failing grades.

She glances down the hall, closes his door, and kneels pleadingly.

"I would do anything to pass this exam," she leans closer to him, flips back her hair, gazes meaningfully up into his eyes, "I mean..." she whispers, "I would do... anything."

He (looking down) returns her gaze, "Anything?"

"Anything," she says as she grabs the material of his trouser legs.

His voice softens, "Really, anything??"

"Absolutely anything," and she bites her lower lip.

His voice turns to a whisper, "Would you, please try to study?"

Enjoy this beautiful Wednesday, Linda!

The minister was preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to ask the congregation to come up
with more money than they were expecting for repairs
to the church building. Therefore, he was annoyed to
find that the regular organist was sick and a substitute had been brought in at the last minute.

The substitute wanted to know what to play?

"Here's a copy of the service," he said impatiently. "But, you'll have to think of something to play after I make the announcement about the finances."

During the service, the minister paused and said, "Brothers and Sisters, we are in great difficulty; the roof repairs cost twice as much as we expected and we need $4,000 more. Any of you who can pledge $100 or more, please stand up."

At that moment, the substitute organist played, 'The Star Spangled Banner.'

And that is how the substitute became the regular organist!

Jesus loves you and I do, too


HOW THE INTERNET STARTED, ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE.

Please, do not Google or check this with Snopes. They will lie to you. Trust me!

In ancient Israel, it came to pass that a trader by the name of Abraham Com did take unto himself a healthy young wife by the name of Dorothy. And Dot Com was a comely woman, large of breast, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she was often called Amazon Dot Com.

And she said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why dost thou travel so far from town to town with thy goods when thou canst trade without ever leaving thy tent?"

And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said, "How, dear?"

And Dot replied, "I will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send messages saying what you have for sale, and they will reply telling you who hath the best price. T he sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS)."

Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums. And the drums rang out and were an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he had at the top price, without ever having to move from his tent.

To prevent neighboring countries from overhearing what the drums were saying, Dot devised a system that only she and the drummers knew. It was known as Must Send Drum Over Sound (MSDOS), and she also developed a language to transmit ideas and pictures - Hebrew to the People
(HTTP).

And the young men did take to Dot Com's trading as doth
the greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Sybarites, or NERDS. And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the deafening sound of drums that no one noticed that the real riches were going to that enterprising drum dealer, Brother William of Gates, who bought off every drum maker in the land. Indeed he did insist on drums to be made that would work only with Brother Gates' drum heads and drumsticks.

And Dot did say, "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being taken over by others." And Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel, or eBay as it came to be known. He said, "We need a name that reflects what we are."

And Dot replied, "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators." "YAHOO," said Abraham. And because it was Dot's idea, they named it YAHOO Dot Com.

Abraham's cousin, Joshua, being the young Gregarious Energetic Educated Kid (GEEK) that he was, soon started using Dot's drums to locate things around the countryside.

It soon became known as God's Own Official Guide to Locating Everything (GOOGLE).

That is how it all began. And that's the truth.

I would not make this stuff up.

The pastor asked if anyone in the congregation would like to express praise for answered prayers?

Suzie Smith stood and walked to the podium. She said, "I have a praise. Two months ago, my husband, Phil, had a terrible bicycle wreck and his scrotum was completely crushed. The pain was excruciating and the doctors didn't know if they could help him."

You could hear a muffled gasp from the men in the congregation as they imagined the pain that poor Phil must have experienced.

"Phil was unable to hold me or the children," she went on, "and every move caused him terrible pain. We prayed as the doctors performed a delicate operation, and it turned out they were able to piece together the crushed remnants of Phil's scrotum and wrap wire around it to hold it in place."

Again, the men in the congregation cringed and squirmed uncomfortably as they imagined the horrible surgery performed on Phil.

"Now," she announced in a quivering voice, "thank the Lord, Phil is out of the hospital and the doctors say that with time his scrotum should recover completely."

All the men sighed with unified relief. The pastor rose and tentatively asked if anyone else had something to say?

A man stood up and walked slowly to the podium. He leaned forward and said, "Hello. I'm Phil."

The entire congregation held its breath. "I just want to tell my wife, the word is sternum."


Wishing Linda a very Blessed Sunday!

Black and White TV

(Under age 45? You won't understand)

You could hardly see for all the snow, spread those rabbit ears as far as they go.

"Good Night, David. Good Night, Chet."

My Mom used to cut chicken, chop eggs and spread mayo on the same cutting board with the same knife and no bleach, but we didn't seem to get food poisoning.

My Mom used to defrost hamburger on the counter and I used to eat it raw sometimes, too. Our school sandwiches were wrapped in wax paper in a brown paper bag, not in ice pack coolers, but I can't remember getting ecoli.

Almost all of us would have rather gone swimming in the lake, instead of a pristine pool (talk about boring), no beach closures then.

The term cell phone would have conjured up a phone in a jail cell, and a pager was the school PA system.

We all took gym, not PE... and risked permanent injury with a pair of high top Ked's (only worn in gym) instead of having cross-training athletic shoes with air cushion soles and built in light reflectors. I can't recall any injuries but they must have happened because they tell us how much safer we are now.

Flunking gym was not an option... Even for stupid kids! I guess PE must be much harder than gym.

Speaking of school, we all said prayers and sang the national anthem, and staying in detention after school caught all sorts of negative attention.

We must have had horribly damaged psyches. What an archaic health system we had then. Remember school nurses? Ours wore a hat and everything.

I thought that I was supposed to accomplish something before I was allowed to be proud of myself.

I just can't recall how bored we were without computers, Play Station, Nintendo, X-box or 270 digital TV cable stations.

Oh yeah... And where was the Benadryl and sterilization kit when I got that bee sting? I could have been killed!

We played 'king of the hill' on piles of gravel left on vacant construction sites, and when we got hurt, Mom pulled out the 48-cent bottle of Mercurochrome (kids liked it better because it didn't sting like iodine did) and then we got our butt spanked.

Now, it's a trip to the emergency room, followed by a 10-day dose of a $99 bottle of antibiotics, and then Mom calls the attorney to sue the contractor for leaving a horribly vicious pile of gravel where it was such a threat.

We didn't act up at the neighbor's house either; because if we did we got our butt spanked there and then we got our butt spanked again when we got home.

I recall Donny Rybolt from next door coming over and doing his tricks on the front stoop, just before he fell off.
Little did his Mom know that she could have owned our house.

Instead, she picked him up and swatted him for being such a jerk. Yes, it was a neighborhood run a muck.

To top it off, not a single person I knew had ever been told that they were from a dysfunctional family.

How could we possibly have known that?

We needed to get into group therapy and anger management classes.

We were obviously so duped by so many social ills, that we didn't even notice that the entire country wasn't taking Prozac!

How did we ever survive?

LOVE TO ALL OF US WHO SHARED THIS ERA; AND TO ALL WHO DIDN'T, SORRY FOR WHAT YOU MISSED. I WOULDN'T TRADE IT FOR ANYTHING!

I remember that life's most simple pleasures were very often the best!

HAVE A GOOD DAY
:)
